Still on my product overhaul (..and you can't believe how much I've had to throw away)which i started HERE, i'm also looking out for safe skin and hair care products that have no parabens and mineral oil and one which i didn't even know i had was the Jergens ultra hydrating daily moisturiser.
I got this moisturiser a few weeks ago as a back up to my Palmer's cocoa butter moisturising body oil in case it ever became scarce to buy.In my opinion i think its a good buy ,not a great buy if you are looking for extra long lasting moisture,it's also affordable.In the past i have tried some moisturisers from Jergens ,ones with Aloe Vera and the ones with Shea butter,i was impressed with the latter because it was non greasy but like i said it didn't last that long on my skin,So now i prefer to carry the hand cream version in my hand bag.

The Jergens naturals daily moisturiser claims that 95% of
its ingredients are natural ingredients ,which in my
opinion may be true judging from the list above, the consistency is not heavy and the texture is quite light enough to make a tinted moisturiser with your choice of make up or foundation.
This moisturiser glides smoothly on my skin,and you have to keep massaging all through for it to be fully absorbed so as not to leave a white film on the surface of the area.
The Good: Good price,easy to dispense from the bottle,moisturises the skin quite well ,no mineral oil or parabens (..thank God),natural ingredients and always available.
The Bad : Not Long lasting.
The Ugly: NO SPF(..shrugs) If you live in a hot region like i do, then you know why this is a big issue for me.
