I’m faced with the usual struggle as the weather gets cold. I need a product that is moisturizing enough to keep my skin hydrated, but doesn’t have that heavy, slimy feeling most lotions leave on the skin. That said, I get very picky when it comes to body lotions, and with both parents abroad, I’m very well-acquainted with the brand Jergens. This is one of the staple products I see in every balikbayan box both from the US and Middle East.
A few weeks ago, Jergens and Araneta Center partnered for the Skincare Fair with the aim of helping ladies achieve and maintain healthy, glowing skin all over their body. So together with a number of college students from all over the metro, I attended the Jergens #GetGlowingwithJergens Skincare Fair at  Araneta Center Gateway Mall. I arrived a little late, but I still got to experience the wide range of activities prepared for the participants — from typography classes to on-site pictorials.

 Although I lack the skills and creativity for typography, I really enjoyed the class. I’ve always admired calligraphy quotes on Instagram, and this class gave me a deeper appreciation for it. It’s a lot harder than it looks! I’m thinking about commissioning someone to do me a piece that I can frame and hang in my room. <3
One of the highlights of the event was the launching of the newest Jergens variant–The Hydrating Coconut Lotion. Its formula is infused with coconut oil and coconut water that makes skin supple and luminous. As part of the media launch, I was privileged to be the first ones to try it and everyone loved its light, refreshing scent.
I’ve been using the Jergens Hydrating Coconut since the event and so far, I could attest that it is indeed very moisturizing to the skin, sans the stickiness that most body lotions have. I mean, seriously, my skin doesn’t get greasy even after I sweat. I particularly love using it on my my heels, elbows and knees. And oh, I like its light, subtle scent – so refreshing. <3
