Moisturizing lotion is always a staple in my skin care routine. Actually, I can never go outside without applying lotion, otherwise, I would feel bare and naked. This isn't weird as I've already read a lot of blog reviews about different brands of lotions/moisturizers and it seems like we're feeling the same thing. Hahah! I am used to applying lotion right after taking a bath because I don't know, it kinda makes my skin instant ready to show off and on-the-go lol.
So as not to take much of your time, here's what I've got in my mind to post a review on: Jergens Age-Defying Lotion.
As my mom always does, she bought me another brand of lotion, which was Jergens, right after I finished my second bottle of Vaseline (wasn't able to post a blog review about it though). I was kinda mad at her for buying a different brand because my skin was used to the formula of Vaseline Lotions, however, it left me no regrets at all! I've been using Jergens Products ever since I was a little kiddo and I was satisfied, though they don't have any lightening lotions in their skin care line, so that's is how I started switching to another brands.
However, this products under their name, is an amazing catch!
Jergens Age Defying Lotion, 500ml
Bought for: Around P200

It comes in a pump bottle for an easy squeeze application and has enough information about the product.

What (my mom and) I like?
-Though it's for aging skin, I think it works just well on normal skin type. I'm in my teenage years and I don't think there is much side effects that I've noticed upon months of using the product. And we all need something to repair our damaged skin cells by the way.
-It's well, doing a good job in sealing skin's moisture.
-It contains Vitamins A, E, and C, antioxidants known to help in repairing damaged skin cells and restores the natural youthful glow of the skin
-It leaves skin feeling and looking supple, healthy, glowing, soft and smooth.
-It is mildly scented.
-It is affordable for its size.
-It is widely available in leading drugstores, supermarkets and department stores nationwide.
What (my mom and) I don't like?
-It is formulated with parabens (yikes!) though works well on preventing skin aging, has dangerous side effects on one's health.
- It leave skin feeling sticky because it's petroleum/oil-based (and I prefer those water-based lotions).
Would I recommend this?
Yeah, sure! However, I find the formula a little heavy for my liking but I think this product would be perfect for those with severe dry skin!
