I tend to like brands that create a community, and really, all brands should strive to do just that. If people are attracted to your products, that’s already one thing they have in common. Why not turn those consumers into a supportive group of friends? Well, that’s exactly what SkinWhite did with their latest batch of girls who formed this year’s Captivate Council.

#FreeInMySkin with Physiogel

A few weeks ago, just after Christmas, an unexpected present arrived at my house: IMG_8056The top of the card made it obvious what was inside: Physiogel goodies! On the inner part of the flap I discovered that it was a thoughtful surprise from my friend and one of my fave beauty bloggers, Liz Lanuzo. She sent it over to share the goodness that is Physiogel.

I’m far from being unfamiliar with the brand as I used to have dry skin and continue to have sensitive skin and bouts of skin asthma. Still, I was so very happy to receive some of a brand that I love. It might seem a little funny to get excited over a box of lotions, but if you’ve struggled with your skin in the past then you’ll understand.
IMG_8058I now have a healthy supply of the Cleanser, Lotion, and Cream (two tubes, yay!). It was still unnaturally cold when these came to me, so it was just perfect timing all around. The Lotion helped relieve rashes on my back and the Cream soothed my face which was starting to crack a bit on the cheek area (something that has not happened to me in a long time).

Dermatologists love to recommend Physiogel products to treat a number of ailments, but you don’t need a prescription to pick them up. They’re easily available at drugstores and set at a very reasonable price, so there’s no excuse for settling for heavily scented, cheap lotions that just don’t do the job. I definitely feel #FreeInMySkin when my rashes aren’t flared up and my dry patches are done away with, so if you’ve any of the same problems, you already know what to try!

I love practical gifts. Thanks a bunch, Liz! :)

Rarely do I ever stray from my Jergens Ultra Healing body lotion, but I thought the Vaseline total moisture Cocoa Glow looked perfect for summer. I imagined the lotion itself would be coloured to impart a soft glow/tan, but it’s the typical white color that most body lotions are. That was a tiny bit of a disappointment, but it does also mean that I can use it at night without fear of it staining my sheets. It’s not a surface tanner. Instead it’s meant to nourish though 3 layers of skin to bring out that natural glow. Obviously cocoa butter is a part of the ingredients list, and because of that this lotion smells amazing. I’m also not one to usually go for scented body lotions (because my skin is so sensitive), but this hasn’t caused me any problems. It’s definitely better than Vaseline’s original scent—I loathe the smell of that stuff. Overall I am a happy, pleasantly-cocoa-scented, well-moisturized customer. :) I would recommend this for summer use, especially since using perfumes on hot days can be unpleasant. On top of moisturizing, the Vaseline Cocoa Glow lotion covers that too. :)
