Happy Monday, everyone! Was your weekend (your Halloween!!) spectacular? If you're a fan of the holiday, or of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead, which is today) be sure to check out my Tumblr for some great stuff! And check out The Tenth to see pics of my little goblins and a few of my favorite Halloween and Day of the Dead decorations! Meanwhile, here at BSB....
If you've been reading BSB for awhile, you've picked up on the fact that I am constantly bitching about my dry cuticles. Well, they aren't my only complaint! I have dry hands and feet, too. And legs, and arms... well, you get the picture.
A few weeks ago, I was browsing through Walgreens, waiting for a a prescription to be filled, and I stumbled across this baby...
...Carmex Healing Cream, and its sister product, Carmex Healing Lotion. I love Carmex products, mostly because of the cheerful yellow packaging, but also because they work. These are no different.
Thickish and intense, you know instantly that they're a bit different than most lotions. There's a distinct, but not unpleasant, scent which does kind of throw off any throw from a perfume placed nearby, which is the only real drawback I've found.
Ingredients include dimethicone, petrolatum, mineral oil, methyl paraben and propyl paraben, so if that's an issue for you, just skip on by. Also inside the cream, "Nine Healing Ingredients". Included: lanolin, cocoa seed butter, and beeswax.
I'm sure the lanolin and beeswax are partually responsible for the thick and heavy feeling that lasts and lasts and lasts. And that's not a negative, in my book.
Damn, I love this stuff.
