Another Product

Another product that I'm surprised I like is something I bought because I was out of face lotion, and I needed to buy something cheap. Anyway, I was looking, looking, looking, and not finding anything that made my socks roll up and down. Finally, I decided just to go with whatever looked like the best value. So I got a giant tub of (and I even laughed at myself for this) Jergens All Purpose Face Cream. Old lady stuff. I was a little bit embarrassed to be seen with it, to be honest. I took the stuff home not realizing that you have to wipe it off with a tissue after you put it on. When I saw that, I really thought I'd done something dumb. Anyway, I decided to give it a try. MAN! It's like a miracle cream! It leaves my skin soft, takes ALL of my eye makeup off (which I can NEVER do, even though I don't wear a lot of eye makeup), and my makeup looks SO GOOD when I put it on over this stuff! I'm with the old ladies on this, Jergens All Purpose Face Cream. The package hasn't been redesigned since 1972, but man is it good stuff.

That IS an old fart looking jar, but hey, if it works!

BTW, I was just thinking that your pics remind mje slightly of that waitress from Heroes that Hiro was smitten with.

It probably would not work for me, or more precisely, would give me acne. Since, anything that says "cream" or "lotion" or especially "oil free" is bound to give me acne ;)

Well, the number one ingredient in this stuff is mineral oil, which was the cardinal sin of my Arbonne days. I have only been using it for a few days, so I'm not sure if it will eventually cause me to break out, time will tell, but I am really loving it right now! Plus, even though there's a gallon of goop in the jar, I won't have to feel too bad if I have to throw it out, because it only cost $2.70.

How sad for you T, I have a problem with stuff with oil in it causing me acne, but oil-free junk doesn't moisturize enough and my nose and chin peel! Grr! I feel your pain!

And I thought Charlie was very pretty, what a nice thing to say to me! :)
