2008 seems to be the year of the "green"-themed beauty products, and I couldn't be happier. The latest launch: a collection of four new body lotions called Jergens Naturals Daily Moisturizers ($8.49). What makes them stand out from the brand's other products is that they are made from 92–93 percent plant-derived ingredients.
I don't know about you, but there's something that just makes me feel better knowing that the ingredients are made from good-for-you vegetables. I've tried all four lotions: Hydrate, Renew, Soothe, and Refresh and find that although they all have a similar, subtle and clean, botanical scent, Refresh is my favorite. It's probably because it contains white tea and crisp mint (two ingredients I'm gaga over). The texture is equally appealing; it isn't greasy, and it left my skin feeling soft, smooth, and touched with a little bit of sheen.
To find out about what's in each of these lotions,
- Hydrate Daily Moisturizer claims to deeply nourish dry skin. It's made with jojoba oil, agave, and cactus oil to restore skin to a comfortable and state.
- Renew Daily Moisturizer contains mighty antioxidants like grapeseed oil, blueberry, and pomegranate to rejuvenate tired and dry skin.
- Soothe Daily Moisturizer contains yogurt, chamomile, and soy extract to calm down dry and irritated skin.
- Refresh Daily Moisturizer helps revive dry, tired skin. It contains aloe, mint leaves, and white tea to awaken, cool, and energize your body.
