Along with the sample of [Jergens Overnight Repair Moisturizer][1] was included a companion packet of **Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer**.  This soothing cream couldn't have come at a better time as my skin is already beginning to show telltale signs of the dryness that I usually experience in the Midwestern autumn and winter months. 

**WHAT THIS IS:**

**Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer**is another rich white lotion almost thick enough to look and feel like a cream.  It is a blend of Water, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Petrolatum, Mineral Oil, Ceteareth-20, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Ascorbyl Palmitate (**Vitamin C**), Tocopherol (**Vitamin E**), Panthenol (**Pro-Vitamin B5**), Pentylene Glycol, Lecthin, Alcohol, Cetyl-PG Hydoxyethyl Palmitamide, Allantoin, Dimethicone, Glyceryl Dilaurate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Stearic Acide, Carbomer, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Sodium Hydroxide, DMDM Hydantoin.  **Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer** is widely available in stores for reasonable prices in 1.0, 3.0, 10.0, 2 1.0 and 32.0 oz. sizes. 

**MY VIEWPOINT:**

I waited a couple days after trying Jergens Overnight Repair Moisturizer to test **Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer** on the same parts of my body (arms, shoulders, and neck) to compare the lasting effects of each lotion.  I relly was more impressed by the Overnight Repair Moisturizer but I also liked ***Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer** and thought it was a luxury-type product that most people could afford.  Although I realize parabens are not the most desirable ingredent in a lotion or anything else which is rubbed into the skin, I feel about them like I do about the threat of nitrates in hot dogs.  While they possibly could be carcinogenic for some individuals, it is also true that millions of people have used cosmetics and lotions containing parabens and haven't got cancer. 

If you are firmly committed to using nothing but all natural products, then **Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer** may not be the ticket for you but I thought it was a nice product which really did have a healing effect on my skin at an affordable price.

**This product in a nutshell:**doesn't help, it hinders!  Jergens Ultra Healing Moisturizer made both my husband and I break out after just a few days of consecutive use.

 When I'm looking for new body lotions to try out, I look for three things: 1) affordability  (my husband and I both use lotion after we shower, so it has to be inexpensive since we use it alot) 2)  unscented or a clean scent (my hubby will not go near anything that smells too feminine or fruity and 3) is dermatologist tested (I have terribly sensitive skin that needs special kinds of nourishment).  Jergens has always been a trusted name brand in my home.  The Original Cherry-Almond scented lotion is totally awesome and luxurious, so I had no reason to think this lotion would perform in a substandard way.  The texture of the lotion is smooth and creamy, not clumpy or runny in any way.  The product glides on easily and really quenched my dry, chapped winter skin without making it greasy.  And the smell is pleasant and light, not overpowering, so my husband was able to use this product, too.  He liked it so much at 1st, that he was even using it on his head after he shaved it.  Much to our chagrin, he and I both broke out in tiny baby acne.  Mine showed up all over my legs and he got his all over his neck and head.  We both knew it had to be from this lotion because we were not using any other new body products and I hadn't changed our clothes detergent.  What a disappointment!  The bumpiness only went away after we quit using Jergens Ultra Healing Lotion for approximately 3 days.

**I give this product 2/5 stars because: **both my hubby and I broke out in a rash after using it.  This lotion is very fresh-smelling and softens dry skin, but I simply cannot use it if it's going to give me bumps.

Helps heal dry and cracked skin.

By 

from USA

Comments about Jergens Ultra Healing® Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer:

In the winter time my hands becomes really dry and flaky due to flu season and constantly washing them. I rely on lotion as my hands get scaly then crack and bleed causing discomfit especially when I am washing dishes. I have tried many lotions out there but I always come back to using Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer. It really does a great job in keeping my hands moisturized and soft. It doesn't feel greasy like some lotions and it absorbs fairly quickly which I really like. Some lotions feel like you are walking around with gunk on your hands not so with this one. It makes my skin feels softer and I don't have to reapply it multiple times a day just once or twice after washing dishes and I'm good to go.

Recently my husband bought me one of those pricey lotions from the department store for Christmas and I started using it. Right away I noticed a different. It felt greasy and didn't seem to penetrate my skin. After a week's use my hand's became dry and started cracking. I immediately went back to using Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry skin Moisturizer and within three days I noticed a huge difference! My hands began to look normal again and within a week they were nearly healed up. This product really works! It says on the packaging that it penetrates through five layers of your skin's surface to start healing at the source and I really believe it does. So if you have really dry, itchy flaking skin give this lotion a try! It really works for me and I hope it does for you too.

Jergens - Visibly Healthier, Smoother Skin And Priced Right

By 

from USA

Comments about Jergens Ultra Healing® Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer:

I happened across Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer when I was looking for something to help relieve extra dry skin on my hands, elbows, and feet. It was the reasonable price that tipped the scales and made me decide to go ahead and give it a try and, let me tell you, I have not regretted it. Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer is truly one of the best lotions for dry skin that I have ever tried. It heals, nourishes, absorbs quickly and thoroughly, never feels greasy, and is very pleasantly scented. The 'Extra Dry Skin Moisturzier' contains vitamins C, E, and B5, all of which 'heal dryness at the source."

This product is made in the U.S.A.

Scent
Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer has a light, delicate, clean scent that is very pleasant to the nose.

Absorption
Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer absorbs quickly and thoroughly, but maybe not quite as fast other moisturizers. I think this is a good thing. It takes its time to soak down through the skin layers healing and moisturizing as it goes.

Effectiveness
Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer is ultra effective in relieving super dry, rough, scaly skin and it leaves skin feeling soft and smooth instantly.

Jergens is the brand I trust for my dry skin

By 

from Fort Worth, Texas

Comments about Jergens Ultra Healing® Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer:

Jergen's Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer has worked for my dry skin for the past few years. I love the soft touch this lotion gives to my skin. After the first time I used this lotion I couldn't go a day without it. I immediately saw a change in my skin. I noticed it looked more moisturized. It was not oily, but it was just right. I love this lotion. I use it and everyone in my house uses it. We all have gotten the same results. I have not had to worry about my dry skin that I have had for most of my life and in the winter it is worse. But with this lotion, in the winter I have no dry skin. My skin is perfect. I will continue to use this Jergens Ultra Healing lotion. I wouldn't dare trust any other brand. I have and will continue to recommend this lotion to my family and friends. I know they will love it to. This brand will continue to be my trusted brand and I can't imagine using anything else.

Not so lavish lotion

By 

from USA

Comments about Jergens Ultra Healing® Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer:

Jergens is synonymous with quality and I am not here to strip that title. I enjoy Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer is ok, but, not great. It is an ideal moisturizer for the summer. It is light, gentle, and easy to apply. It is not heavy and gives your skin an opportunity to breathe while being moisturized. It is best to apply directly after a bath or shower in order to lock in moisture when using this product. The product packaging is visually appealing and the pump never clogs. This product is good in a cinch, but, is not my go to lotion. Jergens Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer is thin and will wear off quickly in the Texas heat and winter. If you are in a windy area, I suggest a different formula. I have only purchased this once, and I'm not sure I would purchase again, unless it were on sale. For the price locally, a better, thicker formula could be purchased at a cheaper price, and be way more effective.

This lotion is a great warm weather moisturizer.

By 

from Hermiston, OR

Comments about Jergens Ultra Healing® Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer:

I initially tried this lotion when I found a coupon in my snail mail. I was very pleased with this lotion. It has a light scent that doesn't interfere with my body wash, deodorant or perfumes. The pump dispenser works well and doesn't drip after you have pumped out the desired amount you want to use. The lotion itself is smooth, refreshing, creamy, silky. It is very moisturizing without leaving the skin feeling wet or greasy. The lotion absorbs quickly. I like using this lotion in the warmer months because of it's highly moisturizing properties. It does a fantastic job re-hydrating the damage the sun can do. It is gentle enough that I can use it on my face as a daily moisturizer and it doesn't clog my pores. I have received numerous compliments on the overall smoothness and lack of wrinkles on my skin. I live in a desert area, so it is even more crucial that I moisturize effectively.

Jergens help dry and rusty feeling skin, I highly recommand it.

Comments about Jergens Ultra Healing® Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer:

I like Jergens it's great for dry skin, when I use it for my skin it works fast making my skin soft and smooth. It turns it from the usual dry and rusty feeling.Sense Jergens has no scent then it's good for those with sensitive skin, allergies, or asthma that reacts with perfume or strong smells. I would highly recommend this, especially to mothers or expecting mothers for their babies and toddlers. There are many sizable bottles which you can use any where whether on the go or at home.

Can't live without it

By 

from USA

Comments about Jergens Ultra Healing® Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer:

This lotions been in my life for as long as I can remember.

My mom been and still using it for a very long time and now she got me addicted to it too.
I would say this lotion is very effective. I have very dry hands because of aczema. And jergens been doing the job for years now. It keeps my hands moist and the scent is very light, which is what I prefer!

I use this lotion constantly throughout the day. I have 2 in my house and a small one always in my purse because I don't like using other lotions, especially the strongly scented one.

And to top it all, the price is affordable and it always goes on sale, and they always have those bottles that have twenty five percent more!
I will definitely be using this for years to come and will recommend to everyone I know that is looking for a lotion to use.

I really have no negative thoughts about this product. I am very satisfied with it.
I love it!

Very well balanced

By 

from USA

Comments about Jergens Ultra Healing® Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer:

I have been using Jergens lotions for at least eight to ten years now. Over that period, I had tried out several different fragrances of Jergens lotions. In general, I have nothing bad to say about any of them. They all worked very good. About three years ago, I came across Jergens Ultra Healing moisturizer lotion for extra dry skin. I decided to purchase it and try it out. My skin is not really dry and had therefore avoided this version of the lotion for a while. However, after trying it, it immediately became one of my favorite's within the whole line of Jergens moisturizers. It is smooth, and gives a very comfortable feeling when used. Does not leave skin feeling oily. Doesn't dry out or make skin feel sticky. I also love the fact that it smells good, but it is not overpowering. It has a nice light scent. Does not affect the scent of any colognes or perfumes used. It is the one lotion that I now use most of the time.

What a Fantastic Product!

By 

from USA

Comments about Jergens Ultra Healing® Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer:

I absolutely LOVE Jergens Ultra Moisturizing lotion/creme. I have been using this lotion for quite awhile now. I have always suffered from very dry and peeling skin and I have tried many other lotions and or creams. One of the lotions that I had tried before trying Jergens Ultra Moisturizing lotion actually made my skin MORE DRY! That was crazy and I am not going to say the brand of that lotion but I am definitely glad that I switched to Jergens Ultra Moisturizing lotion. The bottle that this lotion comes in is very convenient because it has a push-tap on it for lotion to come out instead of having to fumble around with lotion-y hands with a screw top like some lotions. It is a very large bottle that this comes in also which makes it a bargain as it lasts quite a long time with light-moderate usage! All in all I can personally say I highly recommend this product as it did the job it was intended to do!

Scent
No scent which I like!
