I have a graveyard of products, collecting dust in the back of a closet. I haven’t thrown them out because that feels like a waste…but I don’t want to use them, either. I stop using them because something feels off—they’re the wrong texture, or they have a weird smell, or they irritate my skin a little bit. These are what I call disappointing products, and today I have another one for you: Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream.
My stomach emits loud, rumbly noises if I don’t eat breakfast. So to avoid embarrassment, I always make sure to I eat a big bowl of oatmeal every morning if I have time. But recently, I’ve been thinking about another type of oatmeal: colloidal oatmeal, which is the active functional ingredient in many eczema relief lotions and creams. (Note to self: Investigate the difference between lotions and creams.)
