Product Review: Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer in "Monoi Oil"

Hey guys!

A few months ago, I received my TENTH Influenster VoxBox! I KNOW - can you believe it?! I'm seriously so flattered.

You can find this specific product here - at $7 for a 10 oz lotion at Target, it's a bit of a steep price (compared to my typical 20oz lotions for $5 at the drugstore) but well worth it since you don't have to use much product to get super soft legs, or wherever you choose to soften up.

This product took a little getting used to for me. The consistency is more watery than a traditional lotion and you have to remember to apply directly after the shower on your wet legs. I have such a  tendency to quickly dry off my entire body since I hate being cold after the shower, but I've had to get into the routine of drying off half of my body, applying the moisturizer to my wet legs, then patting my legs dry. Patting is very important to remember - you want to feel mostly dry without wiping the lotion off entirely.

After I pat my legs off, I find the moisturizer leaves a bit of a residue for a good hour or two - you know, that feeling that something is applied to your legs. It's not super smooth, it's not super sticky...just there. Don't get me wrong, this moisturizer definitely makes my legs look and feel smoother almost instantly. It's just an odd texture to feel when it's wet and once it's dried.

As far as scent goes, it's a light, fresh, floral scent. I'm more of a heavy, sticky sweet scent kind of gal, but it's not a terrible scent for someone who prefers the complete opposite. I appreciate the "fluffy" light scent every once in a while. However, they do have coconut oil scent which I'm sure if amazing, although I haven't tried it yet.

I am not a person to apply lotion everyday. I wish I was, but I can't seem to get into the habit. However, I need to apply something moisturizing after shaving my legs or else they start to get red and itchy. That only started happening a few years ago, but it's a weird reaction that's stuck with me it seems. That's when using this comes into play. I used to always have to use hair conditioner while in the shower, as well as apply a thick layer of any lotion to my legs after they dried after getting out of the shower. With this innovation, I'm able to only use this and not get that weird reaction. Thumbs up for me!!

I hope this review was helpful for those of you on the hunt for fun, new products to try! I've had fun working with this moisturizer over the traditional lotions lately.

Remember to have a positive day! :)

St. Ives Influenster VoxBox Overview


Because I was lucky enough to receive not one, but TWO VoxBoxes from Influenster in the same DAY (crazy, right?!) I figured that meant two back-to-back blog posts going over what I was lucky enough to receive.

Here's a peak into what I received in the St. Ives VoxBox:

  • St. Ives Even & Bright Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange Body Wash
    • Retails for $2.99 for a 13.5oz bottle or $4.89 for a 24oz bottle
    • Not a fan at all for citrus scents, so this was enjoyed by my mother instead
  • St. Ives Refresh & Revive Pear Nectar & Soy Body Lotion
    • Retails for $4.99 for a 21oz bottle
    • Also not a fan of the scent of this, so my mother gladly took this as well
  • St. Ives Nourish & Soothe Oatmeal Scrub + Mask
    • Retails for $3.99-$4.79 for a 6oz bottle or $4.99-5.79 for a 10oz bottle
    • OMG IN LOOOOOOOOOVE with this product. Definitely doing an in-depth review soon!

Check out the video above for a hands-on look into what I received inside this box!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and be sure to look out for the in-depth review of the oatmeal scrub/mask either on here or my YouTube channel - you won't want to miss it!

Remember to have a positive day! :)
