So I live in a desert. Yep. A dry, hot, boring desert.
And I have realized recently that I am not exactly the spring chicken I once was.
My mother, and no offense to her, aged horribly. Her wrinkles and gray hair came at an early age. Smoking probably helped speed that along.
Anyways, at my age I think I look pretty alright. People often mistake me for a lot younger and are usually surprised when they find out my real age. I don’t have grays. It’s because I am a soulless ginger. Red heads generally gray later. I don’t have wrinkles too much either. I was never a make-up wearer and I have always tried to take care of my skin.
But the dry…
My elbows and my knees…
So I bought lotion. Do you have any idea how many bottles of lotion I have in my bathroom?
I counted them. Little ones, big ones, some with all natural ingredients, some with fabulous fragrances…
And you know how many of them I use?
I hate being all greased up. I hate greasy hands. And mostly, I just forget it is there. I am a busy person. Who has time to lotion? Not me.
Then I started seeing these commercials for this in shower lotion. These commercials are the creepiest thing ever. LIKE EVER....
And while I don’t want some creepy lady anywhere near me or any one I like, I thought maybe this in the shower lotion would be good. I could avoid the dragon scale elbows and knees and not be a greased up pig. And if it is there in the shower, I might actually use it.
So I bought some. But not this brand, I went with Nivea In Shower Body Lotion
AND IT WAS GLORIOUS!
I no longer have dragon elbows and knees. It was awesome. I am not all greasy.
I loved it so much I bought if for Mary on her birthday. Yeah. I know I am weird.
I use the cocoa butter version. It smells good. No one paid me to say that either. I just wanted to share it with you. Because it was that awesome.
