Beauty on a Budget: Light, fragrant body and face creams

Every woman needs a light moisturizer to keep her skin supple.  One that is lightly scented adds to the enjoyment of using the product.  I have very sensitive skin and am hesitant to spend a lot of money on a new skin care product.  I’m also unwilling to pay $20 and up for brands sold at chain drug stores.  To satisfy my needs I’ve tried experimenting with inexpensive products by testing them first on a small area of my neck or cheek.  To my surprise I have found a very good moisturizer that satisfies both my need for a light, absorbent moisturizer and one that has a pleasant fragrance.

Age Defying Skin Cream may not actually halt the aging process but I find it makes my skin smooth and soft after I use it.  It is very light and not at all greasy.  I can use it over my face and neck and even under my eyes without any irritation.  It contains Vitamins A & E according to the label.  I use it instead of a liquid make-up base and find that face powder and powder blush stay on my skin longer.

I also bought a jar of Cooling Aloe Skin Cream to use on my hands.  Now that winter is over I don’t need a heavy hand crème with ingredients like cocoa butter.  This cream works well as is very absorbent.  The Aloe leaf juice added to the product would, you think, make the price higher but it doesn’t.

Both of these skin creams are made by Universal Distributors, manufacturers of products for discount and dollar stores.  I bought mine at Deal 99 Cents Store, 7019 Third Avenue (near Ovington Avenue and 71 St.) in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, NY.  The Age Defying Skin Cream cost $1.19 and the Cooling Aloe Skin Cream cost $1.29.  The packaging is lightweight plastic so there is no worrying about it slipping and breaking.  I’m very satisfied with both skin creams and recommend you give them a try.
