Sun Bum Continuous Spray Sunscreen (Sports) SPF 70 6 ounce

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014


I love the SPF 70 strength. I haven’t tried the others. This is great for those times I don’t feel like rubbing in lotion. There’s no evidence of sun exposure, even after being out gardening for hours. I’m one who doesn’t want any sun to get through, and this achieves that for me. Plus, I’m very vain and this doesn’t make me feel icky/sticky or look slippery. Thanks!

Eucerin Original Healing Soothing Repair Lotion, 16.9 Ounce Bottle

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014



I’ve been hooked on original Eucerin lotion for 18 years, and have hooked others on it too. That’s how great it is for chapped skin and hands that are washed frequently.

I first learned its power when I worked as an infant/toddler caregiver. Some babies drooled so much during teething that they had eczema around their mouths and painful chapping on their chins. Their pediatricians recommended Eucerin. So, parents would bring it and we’d apply it to their children’s faces at every diaper change, both as cure and prevention. It worked beautifully, without prescription and no complaints from the babies! I have suggested it to countless parents who have been very happy with it.

It wasn’t long before all the adults were using it, too. Taking care of kids means a lot of hand washing, and potentially very dry skin. Eucerin got me through many years of full-time childcare duties and helped me maintain very youthful hands. All it would take to turn anyone onto Eucerin is letting them try some. The thickness is like no other lotion. It’s very difficult to settle for anything less. We always have a bottle near the toilet so I can massage it into my hands whenever I sit.

As a frequent litter-box scooper/cleaner with four cats, I use Eucerin every day now into my 40s. My partner won’t use any other kind of lotion on his face unless we’re out of Eucerin (which I am careful about not allowing to happen). It also doubles as a makeup/sunscreen remover for me. It doesn’t break out my very sensitive face and also doesn’t irritate my eyes. We love that it has no scent! I like scents but not near my eyes. It also works for hair frizz!

This is one of my top products that I wouldn’t live without.

CAESARS WOMAN For Women By CAESARS Cologne Spray

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014



Caesar’s Woman first caught my attention in the early 90s, when I received samples of it with my Frederick’s of Hollywood orders. I used up my samples but saved the vials (as always; nothing like getting a nice nostalgic whiff even if there’s nothing left to apply!) in my treasured set of fragrances. The scent was wonderful but a bit too sexy for that stage of my life.

Now that I’m in lifetime relationship with the sexiest man on Earth, I happened to come across it on Amazon and am so glad! It smells as I remember it and it’s not too sexy now: it’s perfectly sexy! It’s in a fabulously large size so I’m not concerned about running out (and if I did, I’d just order more). I wear it around the house, going out, whatever, and it keeps bugs off me when I’m gardening.

If you haven’t used this before, be prepared for a very strong sexy scent. It might be overwhelming to some. Imagine if the hottest date were a scent, this is it. It’s a bit more seductive sort of Lady Stetson, if you remember that (discontinued).
