When I was growing up, my mom would always have a sexy yellow & brown bottle of Jergens lotion sitting on top of her dresser. Lathering its contents onto her skin was part of her daily routine. You need to use lotion to keep your skin moisturized, she said.
She bought me my own bottles when I became a teenager, but they just sat on the corner of my study table, gathering dust. I do not need to use lotion, I thought then. Mom is wrong about this.
But she was right, of course.
Just as she was right about how red lipstick is actually a fabulous color. She only ever had red lipstick in her beauty arsenal, and when I first learned to use makeup I thought it was too bright, too strong, too over-the-top, so I avoided it and stuck to pinks and browns.
But she was right, of course.
Nothing makes your lips pop like the perfect shade of red.
It’s funny because as you grow older, you realize just how wise your parents really were, how you probably should have listened to them and not been so hung up on how you obviously knew better and how they were obviously wrong.
Now that I am older and wiser, I realized that Mom is older and wiser.
That she was right, of course.
You know what else is older and wiser? Jergens lotion.
That same brand of lotion that my mom has used for decades is still around, but with improved formulation. The fact that it has stood the test of time (Jergens is the #1 body lotion brand in the USA) is a good sign, and so is the fact that it is willing to make improvements.
New Jergens goes beyond just moisturizing, giving your skin a beautiful, envious glow (luminous skin). The range has been reformulated with a breakthrough HydralucenceTM blend that provides hydrated, luminous skin that lasts all day.
It comes in three variants to cater to different skin needs.
Jergens Ultra Healing
Sealed with goodness, the Ultra Healing variant contains Vitamin C, E & B5 that repairs and nourish extra dry skin for a visibly healthier appearance.
Jergens Daily Moisture
Daily Moisture variant contains silk proteins and citrus extracts to soothe and repair dry, rough skin.
Jergens Soothing Aloe
Infused with pure, natural extracts, the Soothing Aloe variant contains Cucumber extract and pure Aloe Vera that revives dry skin, allowing it to appear visibly refreshed.
Guess which one is for my skin?
That’s right, ultra healing, because children who don’t listen to their mothers grow up with consequences, which in this case is very dry skin!
As you can see above, my skin is so dry, scratching it leaves marks. But after using Jergens lotion, it becomes moisturized, with a healthy glow. It also feels so soft that I love rubbing the soles of my feet against each other.
It also has a light fragrant scent that is just right and not too overpowering, so you can easily use your own perfume and not get that washed out.
It’s very affordable, with a 400ml bottle retailing at S$8.90 each at leading supermarkets, western pharmacies and personal care stores all over Singapore.
