When your skin has an unquenchable THIRST..

To put it mildly I have been obsessed with finding the perfect cream.  As I ‘get older’ I find no matter what I do, from reducing the amount I submerge my hands in water to liberally applying creams I cannot quench my skins thirst.

Is it the dry environment I live in, handling the horses or the Type One Diabetes I live with I am not sure yet I do believe the skin is getting more demanding as the days go by.

Our skin is considered the largest organ on our body and requires adequate hydration to keep healthy and happy.  I drink a lot of water and still no break for me.

I have left winter behind and with that a lot of my cloths.  The reminder of healthy skin quickly comes to mind as I bare my legs in dresses and I am no longer under 7 layers.

On a recent trip to town I purchased a new cream I had not seen on the shelves and I have been pleasantly surprised with the results and decided it was worth sharing.

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E is a very thick product in a pump bottle that does not leave a greasy after feel; it also smells great which a bonus is always.

This product is not tested on animals and is made in the USA.  Smoothing and diminishing stretch marks and scars is what is featured on the bottle yet this was not my attraction to purchasing the product.

In store I always take a small dab to smell and put on the driest part of my hand, as the tops of my hands are tattooed a good cream with make them look their blackest black.  When I first opened the bottle I received a good sent of Cocoa and the very thick buttery cream caught my attention. Once I applied the cream and rubbed it in there was no greasy after feel and I had never seen a cream produce the immediate results I saw with this cream.

Since purchasing this cream I have gone back to see if there was more and I do believe the fact that it has been hard to come across tells me that I am onto something and I might have to start purchasing on-line.

My NEW favourite combination is the MAGICAL Pedicure Potion and I follow up after the soak with this cream.  Honestly my skin seems to be on the mend.  Especially my feet, really check out the potion as I am singing its praises.

If you have a cream you really like I would love to hear from you.

  1. I will have to try that lotion. Working with garments all day sucks the moisture right out of my hands. Recenly spent a lot of money on a brand called Eucerin. Supposedly non-greasy, but it would never soak in, left an oily mess on the desk I touch, looked like Pledge or something! Right now I use Walgreens brand Intensive Healing Moisturizing Lotion. Soaks in pretty good and feels great. Another guy here at work started using a Suave Healing Lotion of some sort that I really like, I have to go get me some of that!

    • Yes do try and let me know what you think.

      I really am picky about having a greasy film on my hands and I can imagine you are the same if you are touching fabric.

      At one point I was having luck with a no name baby lotion one would use after you bath your kids and after a while it too seemed to lose its appeal.

      The brands you have suggested are not available in my area yet I will try if I come across.
