So one of the reasons I do not like this time of year is because the weather invariably does a number on my skin. I usually end up looking much like a crocadile or a lizard…and that is on a good day. Its especially bad on my hands, elbow and face. Since it doesn’t really get uber cold here- I would hate to think of what my skin would look like if I relocated some where where snow is the norm and not a magic winter anomaly experienced only by travel.
That begin said, I am always on the lookout for a good hand cream that doesn’t cost a bazillion dollars, or even twelve because you know I tend to be a little on the cheap side. Anyway I must say that I have been piqued by the Vaseline Intensive Rescue Clinical Therapy (I am sure you have seen the commercials with the woman from Kodiak Alaska who prescribes it to her favorite people?) but have been leery because I have been disappointed many times before with new lotions. Yes I am taking about you Curel Intensive Moisture**- who have made me all sticky instead of moisturized. Not to mention you smell like lemon Pledge and that isn’t something I want to go around smelling like. Nothing says sexy like smelling like Lemon Pledge right? NOT. And you Olay Quench- who’s fragrance is too over poweringly rose (or something floral) for me that it makes me want to retch because it makes me smell too much like an old lady.
So I am going to try to win a bottle of the Vaseline Intensive Rescue Clinical Therapy (and a cool gift basket..and chocolate…and shampoo…and the best part of the prize a $25.00 gift card from Target- my favorite store) by entering over here at Table for Five’s Amazing Prize Pack contest….you can enter too…but if you do can I at least have the lotion to try?
** The Intensive Moisture may make me all sticky but I do have a love of the Curel Targeted Therapy Hand and Cuticle Cream. I do. Problem is that I am unable to find it locally. And yes I have tried my local drugstore, supermarket, walmart and target. I can find it online but that defeats the purpose of being cheap…I don’t want to pay shipping on a tube of lotion!
