F is for Feedback: Jergens Daily Moisture Body Lotion Reviews

by Janine on 14 December 2012 · 11 comments

Michael Kors SS 2013A few weeks ago, 10 beautygeeks accepted the responsibility of testing a new body moisturizer, taking notes and reporting back. The lotion is Jergens Daily Moisture, a lightweight lotion that promises 24 hours of hydration.

I’m more a fan of body oils, but sometimes I need lotion. When it’s in a pump bottle (really!), it’s my go-to when I’m in a hurry because:

* a pump bottle delivers lotion fast
* lotion is quick to apply — doesn’t need much massaging into skin

Whatever brand I choose,

* the lotion has to deliver enough hydration to get me through the day without itchy skin distracting me
* the fragrance has to be fresh or citrussy — no vanillacandysugarfrosting scents, thank you very much (actually, this point is as important as the first)

Jergens-Daily-MoisturizerJergens Daily Moisture hit the last two points as well as the first two. I’m so down with the scent — not a cupcake in sight. On the long-term hydration point, I’m especially happy. My legs tend to be dry; with Daily Moisture, they’re comfortable right through to night.

Throughout the next little while, the beautygeeks I mentioned earlier will post their feedback about Jergens Daily Moisture. Stay tuned.

Do you go the drugstore route for body lotion? Do you have a favourite? Have you tried Jergens Daily Moisture?

Jergens Daily Moisture is available at drugstores and mass retailers.

I really like it!
I’m in my late 30′s and I have normal body-skin. I moisturize after every shower, but most of the lotions I’ve tried tend to be greasy and/or sticky, but that’s not the case with Jergens Daily Moisture. It’s light and absorbs quickly and I actually like the scent of it.
I don’t usually change the lotion with the seasons and I prefer to use a lighter lotion throughout the year, and this one seems to be a very good option and the skin feels soft and moisturized.
It gets my stamp of approval :-)

I quite like this lotion. I’m in my mid-40s and usually have normal skin, though I tend to suffer from dry skin in the cooler months. In the summer I’ll often forget to apply lotion, whereas in the winter I really have to remember to do so, otherwise my dry skin gets itchy and uncomfortable. I tend to use whatever I have on hand for both seasons.

I like the scent of the Jergens Daily Moisture, it’s not too strong, with a nice citrus scent. Doesn’t linger too much on my skin, after the fact, which I’m happy about. I found the lotion a bit slow to absorb, but it does eventually. The moisture level is maintained throughout the 24-hour period, so it works in that regard!

I’m in my early 40′s and I have normal to slightly dry skin. (Dryer in the cooler months)
I like the smooth, non-greasy lotion texture, but would prefer a more subtle scent. My scent of choice is usually a light citrusy one.
I don’t tend to switch my moisturizer seasonally, as I prefer a lotion year round. I like this product and would recommend it
Thanks for the intro BeautyGeeks!

I really love this lotion! I am 41 and use a body moisturizer everyday because I tend towards dry skin. This lotion is light but moisturizes so well, my skin felt supple and hydrated. The scent is fresh and lovely…but won’t interfere with your perfume. I have always been a fan of Jergen’s lotions and this one is no exception, it’s excellent. I often change my lotions to suit the seasons however the Jergens Daily Moisture is a great well-rounded, not too heavy lotion I will use year-round.

A nice lotion! I’m 43 years old and get quite dry and itchy in the colder weather. Normal skin year round except Winter, then I’m “dry”. I don’t change lotions seasonally but I do like to try different kinds. I enjoyed trying the Jergens Daily Moisture and would recommend it. I like the pump for easy application (although I got a bit enthusiastic one morning, pumped, and it shot halfway across my bathroom!) The cucumber scent is nice as I don’t like flowery scents. And it’s not overpowering and doesn’t conflict with perfume. The only downside was the promises made numerous times on the back label of “visibly refreshed skin”. I’m not sure I can see any visible difference at all and it strikes me as an odd claim to make. That idiosyncracy aside, the Jergens Daily Moisture met/exceeded my expectations. Nice texture (not too thick/gunky/oily which are dealbreakers), fresh modern scent, good moisturizing results, and most importantly, no Winter itchies! A good product. Thanks for letting me try it out!

I am a lotion junkie, so I was happy to review this product. I am in my early 50′s and have normal skin which tends to get drier in the harsh winter months. I do not intentionally switch brands in the winter but do tend to use different products from day to day. In the winter I tend to apply lotion more often. The texture of the Jergens Daily Moisture is quite light and absorbs rapidly into the skin. I could snap my fingers right after application. The skin feels soft and silky with no residue lingering after application.The moisturizing effects last all day on my body but of course my hands need multiple applications through out the day to feel moisturized. The scent is quite light and barely detectable. I was hoping for a stronger scent since it is infused with lemon, grapefruit and pineapple extracts. Overall this is a great basic lotion, it does job well with no lingering residue or scent. It is perfect for my husband who hates to apply lotion because of the feeling afterwards. It nice to use when you are busy and start to get that dry feeling on your hands. I will probably keep this lotion in the kitchen because I love the fast ready to go results.

I love this lotion! I’m in my mid-late 30s and my skin falls in that normal to dry range. I moisturize after my shower/bath, and before bed. Other moisturizers that I’ve tried have left my skin feeling greasy and like the cream never actually sunk in (and left behind an icky gross residue – yuck). The Jergens Daily Moisture Cream has a great texture, wasn’t greasy, absorbed really quickly and kept me comfortable all day. My skin feels great, not a dry patch in sight! :)

Like Terry (above), I am a lotion junkie. I love to try new brands and scents (but like Janine, I stay away from the vanilla sugary scents). My “go to” scent is citrus so it was an absolute pleasure testing out the Jergens Daily Moisture lotion. I’ve just crossed over into my 40s and just over the past 2 years have suffered from eczema in a very annoying way. (Scented lotions typically aggravate it which is so sad for this lotion junkie). Depending on how dry and cold the weather is, I may change to a heavier body cream/butter. I am happy to report that not only did this lotion keep my skin hydrated (and the weather is getting cooler), my eczema is not aggravated! I will definitely have Jergens Daily Moisture lotion as part of my daily moisturizing routine. The scent reminds me of summer days and oh, how I need that during those dreary winter days. Thank you Beautygeeks for the opportunity to be a tester!

I was happily surprised with this lotion. I’m 34, with normal skin. During winter months my skin, especially my legs, tends to be much dryer. I also take a lot of hot baths which aggravates dryness. The lotion has a very silky texture which I loved. The smell is great as well. I love citrus scents so it was perfect while not too strong. Lotion was absorbed very quickly and didn’t leave a greasy film on my skin. My legs stayed hydrated all day.
I will certainly continue using this product and recommend it to girlfriends.
I’m very happy I was able to discover and test this product.
Thank you!

I love Jergen’s Original with the cherry almond scent – yummy. My fave drugstore lotions for moisture? Olay Quench Firming and Nivea Q-10. The Best.

Loved this Jergens lotion! It went on silky smooth, nice and thick but not greasy. There’s nothing worse than lotions so thick you have to allow time for them to absorb before you can get dressed (I’m looking at you, Body Butter!). It doesn’t get too cold/dry here on the coast, so the same formula works well all year round on my normal skin. I found that my skin remained well quenched for the entire day. I would start using this on a regular basis if it came in an unscented formula (I didn’t get a citrus smell from it, just more of a perfumed aloe scent?). I also would prefer a squeeze bottle with a flat top that you can stand upside down for when the product gets so low the pump can’t dispense it. I’m in my late 30′s and have recently started looking for a new daily body lotion, so thank you for the opportunity to test it! This will probably be my back up lotion.
