“Child,” Mom would always tell me, “put some lotion on those ashy legs!”
“No,” I’d calmly reply. “I hate lotion. It burns.”
Of course, Mom was right, and by the time I’d hit my late teens I was applying lotion like it was a job, religiously, with all the seriousness it deserved.
Unfortunately, I’ve gotten kinda lax about body lotion lately. Busy days have left me with barely enough energy to shower, much less full-body moisturize.
Thank goodness for Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Daily Body Gel ($6), aka my tired (and dry) booty’s BFF.
I’ve been using this lightweight moisturizer a lot this week, and I’m flat-out obsessed, which is admittedly something that happens to me a lot, ha!
Not only do I love how well it works, as in how fast it absorbs and all that, but I love the summery aloe Vera scent.
A little goes a long way (something that took me about a day to figure out), and when I was using too much, it was leaving my skin a little sticky.
Vaseline Aloe Fresh Gel is fast AND cheap (but not in a sleazy way), and quite possibly my new summer skin staple. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+

Tonight El Hub and I are supposed to go see District 9, a new science fiction movie about aliens living among us.
Sometimes that’s how I feel things are with Tabs…
Whatchu got on your radar tonight?
