Price you paid?: $5.99
Just so you know, the "tin" is $1.99, the "tube" is $2.99, and the "tub" is $5.99.
I love this, and I'm not exactly sure why.
Well, actually, the answer is easy. It's an excellent moisturizer. I probably would have no use for it during the summer months, but this has a light, whipped texture that glides on silky smooth, absorbs quickly, and moisturizes well. And true to its attestations, it leaves skin with lasting softness.
It's not "rich". If you have severe dryness, I'd check out Palmer's Cocoa Butter lotion. But this is quite adequate for any normal levels of dryness.
I admit, though, the reason why I like it so much is the fragrance. It's not at all the type of fragrance I usually like. It's powdery and very ladylike. But for some reason, I find it a very comforting scent, like when you're a little girl watching your mother get ready for a night out, that's what a lady would smell like. Strange, huh?
I even like the retro uberdrugstore packaging.
Great product! And cheap! Let's hope they come out with a big pump bottle soon!
