Mastering your Winter Skin Woes

Over the years I have spent a small fortune on skin care products, the expensive ones & the inexpensive ones, especially the ones designed for my hands. Some of them have worked OK, offering up temporary relief, others have been a complete fail – refusing to soak in causing my hands to remain a constant oil slick, and me unable to open a jar of peanut butter (true story, I couldn’t get it open. I just wanted peanut butter on my apple…).

I bake a lot, which means my hands are in & out of dough, then dishwater, I have kids to bathe & with all the germs said children come with, my hands are also constantly being washed. All the water & outside elements leaves them so dry they hurt sometimes and I was desperate for a solution. A real, solution I could count on. Last Winter I lucked out and found the Jergens Vitamin E Replenishing Moisturizer at my local Shoppers Drug Mart. I had once again been on the hunt for a product I could use on a daily basis that would fit the moisturizing bill without leaving my hands slimy. I noticed the Jergens lotions & remembered my Mom using their lotions when I was little, so I took a chance. It worked great, my hands felt better almost right away, more moisturized but not gooey. I also noticed that I could use the lotion and even after a good hand washing my hands weren’t as painful as before, almost as though they were being healed at the same time.

OFS - Jergens Vitamin E Replenishing Moisturizer

Since then I’ve purchased two more bottles of the Jergens Vitamin E Replenishing Moisturizer, which if you visit us you’ll already know as one sits in my living room right next to my chair. The other I keep by my bed and I use it nightly on both my hands & my feet. The girls like it too, and while I have a different lotion I use on their bodies, it’s Audrey’s lotion of choice for her bedtime foot massage. She always asks for the “Mommy lotion that smells good” and a “Thumb foot rub” before she goes to sleep.

Once again, Shoppers Drug Mart has our family’s needs covered. Regardless of what I’m shopping for I know I’m going to be able to find it in my local Shoppers Drug Mart & that when I do find what I need, I’ll also be earning my Shoppers Optimum Points in the process (which I save for me – kinda like my very own “Mommy Reward”)!

I don’t know if you’re struggling with dry skin, but I’m going to guess if not you, someone else in your house is. On top of that I’m betting that your needs in a lotion aren’t necessarily the same as mine. The team at Shoppers Drug Mart knows that too & they understand that their large selection of products designed to keep our skin healthy this winter can be slightly (or completely) overwhelming. As always, knowing the needs of your family & mine they took care of details:

-The Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Experts offer complementary in-store skin consultations, using the beautyRx tool

– During your Skin Analysis the consultant will measure the hydration levels of your skin using the Moisture Checker. They will also use a Video Microscope to magnify your skin’s surface by 30 TIMES to help diagnose your skin type!

– Based on your readings, and preferences they will work with you to recommend the appropriate skin care products.

Whether you’re looking for luxury products like Clinique, Estee Lauder & Biotherm for specific skin ailments or a more broad spectrum product like I was, with Jergens, Nivea & Vaseline, I’m confident Shoppers Drug Mart will have it. After my great success finding what WE needed, I can’t recommend enough that you visit your local Shoppers Drug Mart. If you’re uncertain what to buy, take them up on the complementary beautyRx Skin Analysis and then purchase your products with confidence (and Optimum points)!
