This winter is turning me into a cactus. I feel like my skin has been sucking up every bit of moisture that it can, and leaving me itchy and as dry as a tumbleweed in the Wild West.
It’s getting really annoying, which is why I decided to pick up Jergens Original Scent: Cherry-Almond Moisturizer last week.
It’s really my own fault that I picked out this scent. I guess in my mind, I just figured that “original” meant “mild”, not recognizing the cherry-almond part on the bottle. I don’t hate the smell, but I am not a big fan either. And to be fair, I have been resistant to all things cherry smelling or flavored for my entire life so at no fault to Jergens, the smell was kind of a miss for me.
The lotion itself works well. It absorbs well, moisturizes well, and is overall a pretty decent hydrating formula. I apply this every morning, and it keeps my legs (the dry problem child throughout this winter) itch free. There is nothing worse than having itchy legs when you are wearing jeans – it’s like a slow form of torture.
Overall, I’d give this lotion a pass. I definitely wouldn’t go back for the scent, but for the price, $5.49 at Walmart, it’s a huge bottle and will most likely last me the rest of this winter. For a budget find, this is a good option and guaranteed to tame the cactus attempting to emerge during the remaining winter months.
