Skincare products no budget-minded person should be without
Drugstore products that work like they're from a department store from Vaseline and St. Ives
Whether you're caring for a family, in school, working your first job or just tightening the belt for the upcoming holidays, there are lots of reasons why you may not have lots of cash for personal pampering.
Also, as it typically happens, when you're tight on money, you're often tight on time, too! No chance to get to the crowded mall, the downtown boutique, the salon. You may only be able to fit in what you absolutely must: the drugstore, the grocery store. Is there any room for you in there?
Fortunately, there's Vaseline Intensive Care deep moisture jelly cream and also, St. Ives Refresh and Revive Pear Nectar & Soy Body Lotion. I was happy to be hosted to experience them, both of which are available at mass merchandisers, drugstores and grocery stores -- many of which are open 24/7 around the US.
Vaseline's new product has a lotion consistency, which some people will desire more than the traditional stickier, thick jelly. It has no scent: that's important for fragrance-intolerant people or folks who work in a scent-free environment. In a larger 7.1 oz. tub, this generously sized product is fun to scoop into, though a little product goes a long way. It remains quite moist, so it might be best for post-bath, overnight use. It's for severely dry skin, so try it on ashy elbows, feet, knees, hands, itchy and dry backs. Hydrated, plump and moist skin isn't just more comfortable, it's younger looking!
This cream has been clinically proved to improve skin moisture by 250% and keep it hydrated for 18 hours. It's a recipient of the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance. This award is considered a green light for those who have the chronic skin condition to be able to get some relief.
The new addition to the St. Ives line, Refresh & Revive, comes in a family-sized, 21 oz. pump bottle with an ergonomic curve to hold it. The pear nectar scent is light and freshly fruity: certainly unisex and appropriate for all ages. The "slip" -- as spread is called in the beauty business -- is silky. It absorbs well, yet still leaves the surface of your epidermis moist.
The background information of this body moisturizer is that it's made with 100% natural moisturizers, including vegetable glycerin, shea butter and soy bean oil. It doesn't contain any animal ingredients, which some people will appreciate for philosophical reasons, while others may be physically intolerant of animal-based moisturizers.
The great thing about these body moisturizers is that everyone across the country, no matter where they live or what their financial status is, should find it easy to access their quality skincare.
