I hope Jergens does not stop making it! I love it!
The first ingredient is mineral oil so that should tell you something....Jergens All Purpose Face Cream is very - let me repeat - VERY moisturizing. It is worth noting that this comes in a 15 oz. jar - so practically a life time supply if you use it only for your face.
I got this at Wal-mart and was excited to try it out since my skin has been dehydrated lately, and I have hard water to boot so by the time I have patted dry my skin is begging for moisture. I put this one before bed, a little goes a super long way. This practically glides across the skin. It took a long time to absorb so I would not recommend for day time use. When I woke up my skin was smooth, hydrated and felt soft.
I haven't used this to remove makeup yet but I will try it since I use Revlon CS primarily and it has a tendency to leave traces of makeup behind. I imagine it will work well - like I said it is super slippery and a little goes a long way.
All in all, I would repurchase again, but I won't use this very often. I would personally only recommend this as a moisturizer for super dry skin, anything less than that and you probably won't like the way your skin feels. I had to fight the urge to tissue off what didn't absorb:(
Five lippies for an inexpensive, super cream that will hydrate the driest of skins:)
UPDATE: I have been slathering this on at night and waking up to baby soft skin. My medication is drying my skin out and I have been drinking water non stop nothing else was helping but THIS made all the difference in the world. Very pleased with this product!
OK, so I have been using this for several years and can say that it is the best thing in my medicine cabinet. I love everything about it: the old school smell, the creamy pink color, the way it takes off every trace of makeup and leaves my skin dewy and soft. It costs about $2.88 at Walmart.
This product is simple, and amazing. It's SIMPLY AMAZING! It's packaging can improve, but it's been around so long, so I guess that's okay. Sure, you look greasy with it, but I sleep with it in on, so I don't care, haha! If you just leave it on at night, you won't regret it. I go through phases where my undereye area gets all wrinkly and loose (disgusting, I know), and a few nights with this baby, and all the winkles are GONE ! (: Def. buying this, whenever I run out. It's so HUGE! It'll last you months, depending on how much you use. GET THIS. Don't buy expensive brands, just get this. Your wallet will thank you. :D
I use this as a makeup remover since I can't use it as a mosturizer on account of the fact that I have extremely oily skin but I love it cuz it removes my waterproof mascara very very well :) I use Volum' Express and without this it just won't come off!
This product has been amazing for me over the years. I have dry sensitive skin and have to be mindful of what I put on it. It is super cheap for a giant tub. It removes my makeup efficiently and even my waterproof mascara. I rub it all over my face and take a warm washcloth and let the washcloth steam my face for about a minute, and everything comes right off. It doesn't irritate my skin in any way shape or form. It doesn't bother my sensitive eyes and yet it is so effective. Sometimes going back to the basics is the best thing. I have tried many high end and many all natural products, with many of them not doing anything except dipping into my pocketbook. When they state this is an all purpose cream they aren't kidding. It is a great makeup remover and it is a great moisturizer for your face. It is a little greasy but when you have dry skin, it does sink in. I love this for travel. I just transfer it into a smaller pot and use it for makeup removal, a facial moisturizer, under eye cream, and even a body and foot moisturizer. A giant tub will set you back about $4 and last forever. There will always be room in my medicine chest for this great inexpensive multi purpose cream.
This is a pretty awesome product. I use it to clean my face in the evenings and it doesn't break me out. I massage the face cream into my face without bothering to remove my makeup for about 15-30 seconds. then I use a warm/hot washcloth and let it rest on my face for 5 seconds and use the washcloth to remove the cream. It really cleans off the makeup. I do apply the CVS version of Cetaphil's moisturizing cream afterward after I apply my retin-a. Retin a is really the only thing that seems to control my acne. I also use a mix of BP and Clindamycin during the day, but if I skip it my skin doesn't go crazy like skipping retin-a does.
This is a great product that's super-cheap. I think its $4 at Walmart for a huge tub that lasts a long time. It does what it's supposed to without breaking me out. What more can you ask for?
This cream is fantastic! I am 20 years old and have very sensitive, dry skin; I have never seen my face oily in my whole life. Having such dry, reactive skin, it's hard to find a cream that can cater to my needs: heavily moisturizing, highly emollient and hypoallergenic. This cream is both, and I think I've found my HG moisturizer! I personally love creams that contain oil, because they help me stay moist throughout the whole day; oil-free creams tend to leave me dry and flaky after a few hours, and this one absolutely does not thanks to the oily, emollient nature of this cream.
My method of application is simply to generously apply it on my face. I do not wash it off or remove it; my skin absorbs it very fast and is left feeling silky smooth. If you are of the oily variety, I'd advise to either skip this product or use it merely as a makeup remover.
Definitely try this out if you are in need of a great, heavy moisturizer!
I love this stuff, my aunt used this stuff and my uncle does too, and once i started using it my mom bought herself a bottle too, its awesome! It is greasy though but thats okay, i'll just use a cleaser after, i put some of this in a travel bottle and i'm barely using it up, so this should last a while it is worth a re purchase
My grandma and my mom have both used this stuff....so it was no surprise that I'd somehow end up with it too.. I seemingly have sensitive eyes because everytime I use eye mu removers I.e..estee lauder.. Allay..even neutrogena they all make my eyes burn.....anddd all the make up STILL doesn't come off....
This stuff, albeit a little greasy, still does a great job of taking eye mu off, I just follow it up with my cleanser afterwards...oh and it's 2 something at walmart
