After going through at least three bottles of Jergens lotion (Original, Ultra Healing and Shea Butter variants) this year alone, it’s safe to say that I’m a bona fide Jergen-holic. I’m excited to see that, even after all these years, they’re constantly coming up with new and exciting products to address various skin concerns. Their latest? Jergens Hydrating Coconut Dry Skin Moisturiser.
Quick Specs: 250 ml, available in different sizes ; made in Australia
Three Things Jergens Hydrating Coconut Dry Skin Moisturizer:
- I like the variety of sizes Jergens lotion bottles come in. While I usually get the one with the pump, I find that the 250ml bottle is quite convenient to use. The shape of the lid allows for the bottle to maintain its balance even after being flipped over. That comes in handy when you’re halfway through the lotion.
- Instead of the usual floral scents, we have ourselves some coconut! I’m getting a sweet, almost orange-y quality to the coconut and not the usual scent of raw or roasted coconut oil. The scent lasts for over an hour, but it fades into something super subtle. You’d have to put your nose to your skin to sniff it out.
- Hydrating Coconut Moisturizer has a feel that’s consistent with other Jergens lotions. You get the sensation of skin being well-coated in the product, but this particular variant does feel somewhat lighter than others. It’s not runnier, but it feels more lightweight. It’s more ideal to use in the morning, since it doesn’t feel sticky or cause clothes to cling to the skin. That light-yet-full moisture power can be attributed to nutrient-rich coconut water and coconut oil. Then there’s also the Hydralucence technology, also found in other Jergens variants, that creates dual-layer moisture.
Verdict: Aside from having my comforting nighttime treat in the form of Jergens Original Moisturizer, I’m glad I can reach for a daytime hydration alternative that will keep the post-bath fresh feeling going for a bit longer.
