Drugstore find: Jergens Soothing Aloe Relief

One of my favorite lotions back in high school was from Jergens. It was affordable, smelled great, and didn't feel sticky. It was such a staple then, but when I got more adventurous with products in college, I just sortof forgot about it, y'know? But when Jergens sent me their new lotion, I just remembered why I loved this back then.

After all these years, Jergens still is affordable, nice-smelling, and non-sticky. A new variant, the Jergens Soothing Aloe Relief, has a calming, clean aloe vera smell that doesn't overpower. So not fussy! It promises to be skin-cooling with that menthol ingredient, but don't worry, it doesn't feel minty. The slight cooling sensation lasts a couple of minutes while the lotion dries.

It feels moisturizing, of course. It also sinks in fast so you don't have to keep on blending and blending. I do find that you have to use a bit more than usual to get really good coverage, but it's just a minor observation.

Overall, great stuff! I would recommend the Jergens Soothing Aloe Relief to just about anyone who's looking for a cheap, easily available lotion that feels comfortable and smells good.

I had a Jergens lotion in glowing shimmers. It gives off the same moisturizing power with certain bronzing glow. It's suitable for night parties. I love it!

Hi Alexa! Seen that before and I'm interested to try. :D Where do you get yours?

Jergens is great for summer weather. It dries fast and doesn't feel sticky on the skin even when it's hot and humid. I've tried the aloe vera variant and I've been alternating it with my all-time favorite, cherry almond. I'd also like to know where I could get the bronzer/lotion!
