Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Lotion is my go-to lotion—I always use it right before I go to sleep at night. I always take a travel-size portion of it with me when I’m away from home. On a recent trip, I didn’t pack quite enough of it, so I thought I would try out the CVS drugstore version of this lotion, just for kicks.
Sometimes I marvel at how far humans have come from the days of putting leeches on our skin as a form of medicine. I feel so lucky to live in a world that offers many types of sunscreen—not just chemical and physical, but also tinted sunscreen and even sunscreen that’s designed to provide a cooling sensation. The latest innovation I spotted in the drugstore was “dry” sunscreen—not “dry” in the sense that it’s actually a powder, but sunscreen that doesn’t…
When I first discovered “whipped sunscreen” back in May, I was intrigued. Now I’m suddenly seeing it all over Olay’s advertisements. The whole Whips product line looks exactly like whipped cream. But in contrast to Coppertone’s Whipped Sunscreens, these Whips products are packaged in regular jars, rather than aerosol cans. So what helps create their “whipped” texture?
