Lazy Girl Approved highlights long-lasting, goof-proof, fuss-free products that can fit into the most minimalist of regimens. If you consider yourself a low-maintenance beauty lover, these product reviews are for you!
Lazy Girls always seem to have some excuse for skipping post-shower moisturizer, whether it's the fact that lotion can take a long time to rub into skin and absorb properly, one too many snooze alarms in the morning, or a speedy gym-to-cocktail-hour routine that leaves little time for "non-essentials." Well, no more: Jergens Moisturizer For Wet Skin ($9.99 at London Drugs) has been out for some time now and it's safe to say this product is a game-changer.
What it is: A moisturizer meant to be applied right after a shower, when skin is most receptive to moisture.
Packaging-wise: Standard drugstore packaging—a large 500 ml pump bottle for Canadians, and an upside-down, flat-bottomed squeeze bottle for Americans. The back features detailed usage instructions and amount guidelines for those who've never used a wet skin moisturizer before, ensuring you don't apply too little (hello, alligator legs) or too much (hello, greasy limbs).
Formula-wise: Fresh out of the bottle, Jergens Moisturizer For Wet Skin looks like any other white-ish body lotion. The formula emulsifies on contact with water droplets and takes on the consistency of an ultra-light body oil. There's no need to rinse off or wait for it to absorb completely, but try to delicately pat skin instead of rubbing vigorously with your towel.
Out of curiosity, I tried the moisturizer on dry skin just to see how it would feel. It wasn't like a normal moisturizer at all—it felt watery and wouldn't stick and wouldn't absorb. The "moisturizer for wet skin" designation isn't just a gimmick—this is really how it ought to be used.
The one I tested features Green Tea Oil and has a light, fresh scent. Other varieties feature Coconut Oil and Monoi Oil.
Lazy girls will like it because: Jergens Moisturizer For Wet Skin is quicker and more convenient than a conventional body lotion, but just as effective at keeping skin hydrated and happy. A regular moisturizer can feel like a hassle to use—all that rubbing and waiting for it to absorb—but this takes literally 20 seconds, tops, shaving precious minutes off morning routines and post-workout primping.
