Thank you, Olay In-Shower Age Defying Body Lotion ($7), for turning me into a well-oiled, lotion-applying machine.
A little beauty backstory
I have alligator skin. Consequently, I spend copious amounts of time applying body lotion. Once, I tried to figure out how much time I’ve spent at it over the course of my life, and it worked out to something like 52 days.
52 DAYS! That’s time I could’ve spent learning how to play the lute or drooling over Ry-Ry.
Depending on how long I stick with creamy Olay In-Shower Body Lotion (I’m fickle when it comes to lotions), I could save hours over the rest of my life because it basically eliminates the five minutes I’d otherwise spend applying lotion after every shower.
Instead, after washing and rinsing off my regular body wash, I just rub it on (taking in the light apple-floral scent) while the water’s still running. The heat and humidity in the shower activate its moisturizing mojo.
Then, after all of my dry skin areas are sufficiently coated, I rinse and pat down with a towel.
Moisturized from head to toe in two minutes flat.
If it were just fast but didn’t moisturize well, I’d say forget it, but my skin just loves this stuff. It delivers heavy duty hydration. Even the ashiest parts of my legs, knees and elbows feel smoother and softer, and they feel that way from the start of my work day until quitting time in the afternoon.
I’m sure I’ll keep reaching for it at the end of long days, like when I’m extra tired and lazy (read: often). Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
It’s about frickin’ time!
PRAISE YE GODS, I’m finally getting my hair did!
My appointment’s for a cut and color. I can’t wait! I’ll be back in a few (wish me luck).
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
