I no longer waste money on expensive moisturizers. I have found two products that are amazing and very inexpensive. The first is cocoa butter in a jar. It is made by Queen Helene and is a very rich and very moisturizing body cream that can also be used on the face (I found it at CVS). It comes in a big jar and is about $3! I slather it on after a bath or after washing my face. It is as rich or richer than those expensive body butters and has a nice pure smell.
The second item is vitamin E oil. I bought a bottle of it at my local pharmacy (CVS) for 2 or 3 bucks and the stuff is great! I use it under my eyes at night and on my wrinkles. I also rub it into my nails and on my heels at night (which I cover with a sock).
I've always liked that cocoa butter too. I get it at WalMart. It smells so good too.
I like to use sweet almond oil on my face. I think olive oil, vitamin E oil, etc. all work very well. Also, if you get the pure oil there are no additional additives. My skin drinks it in. A bottle lasts a long time. Cheap & good.
Awesome! I'm going to buy some of both these products today. Thanks!
