Jergens Shea Butter Cream
Posted November 13, 2009on:
Now I only trust shea butter and cacao butter for ultra nourishment. My original intention to purchase Jergens shea butter cream is aims for hand care rather than body care. Jergens is relatively expensive to me as a drugstore brand, but that is undeniable they have satisfactory quality.
The cream is thick and emollient, like a butter or balm, thus it takes a short while to be absorbed properly, meaning that it is actually quite greasy at the beginning. The sweet cacao scent is over powering to me initially but I get used to it now (I have to). Most of the time, I use this like hand cream. It had not done better than Skin Food Cacao Hand Balm for my extra ‘thirsty’ hands, but budget hand care for day treat since I have to wash my hands frequently.
For body use, I usually mix the cream with Clarins body treatment oil for supreme moisturizing treat in dry season, the approach dilutes the strong sweet chocolate scent (but my SO said the combination’s scent smell weird which I don’t think so) and make the cream more runny to spread accross the skin.
This is not helpful to soften hard nail cuticles nor heals the hard spots, but good enough for moisturizing, that’s why I still need a proper hand cream at night, but I might continue to re-purchase this for day use. It retails 288 baht for 221ml in Thailand.
Rating: ….))) Good. May buy again.
