Jergens Naturals

This winter my skin has been incredibly dry and dull and I can't seem to slather on enough moisturiser to keep it looking healthy. I was therefore happy to be given the opportunity to try the new Jergens'  Naturals range. This line contains over 96% natural ingredients, is paraben free, and is not tested on little bunnies :).

The main ingredient is of course cocoa butter, which I have always loved as it smells delicious, is deeply hydrating and also helps to improve the appearance of stretch marks. Other ingredients include vitamin E, which protects skin from cell damaging free radicals, shea butter, sunflower oil, soybean oil, jojoba, olive oil, oatmeal and avocado. 

The whole list of ingredients can be found on the Jergens website here. I think it's fantastic that they not only list the ingredients, but if you click on each one it also tells you it's purpose/ benefit. I wish all companies would do this as it makes it much easier for the consumer to understand exactly what is in their product.

I have been using this moisturiser for about 2 weeks and am absolutely loving it so far. (It is definitely comparable to my favourite deeply moisturising Garnier Hydralock, which is perfect for dry and sensitive skin. My bf has eczema on his back, and both of these moisturisers sooth and heal the area effectively and without further irritaion. Big thumbs up so far!)

In consistency the Jergens Naturals cocoa butter is a very smooth and thick cream without being overly greasy. Be careful not to use too much as it is deeply nourishing and a little really goes a long way. Usually I use a lot of moisturiser (more is more when it comes to my legs), so I over applied the first time I tried it and ended up with those white streaks that take a while to massage in. This isn't the kind of moisturiser that sinks in immediately and it does leave some residue on the skin, which some people may really dislike. However, if you have dry skin you will love this as it really helps keep your skin hydrated all day long!

The new Jergens Naturals Range is available at Boots, Tesco, Superdrug and Sainsburys RRP £4.99 for 200ml. 

Have you tried anything from Jergens? I used their gradual tan and moisturisers when I lived in Bermuda, but since they only came to the UK in 2009 I'd love to know what you guys think of the brand!!

Dear FTC: This product was sent to me for review purposes. As always I love my readers more than freebies, so these are all my honest opinions :).


  1. Oooh it sounds lovely :) Will have a look when I next go to Boots! xx

  2. Wow! thanks for the info :) Jergens is one of my recently re-discovered favorites. I'm always looking for products to keep my chapped skin soothed. And I live on the Gulf of Mexico! I shudder to think what my skin would be like in somewhere drier ;b

  3. I've tried the hand cream and really liked it, wouldn't mind trying the body cream some time as my legs get very dry these days. x

  4. Ohhhh... it sounds lovely. Similar ingredients to Palmers creams, so that's intriguing! Can't wait to try them... great review.
