This is one of the most bare-bones body moisturizers Jergens produces, and we're being kind. While it is fragrance-free and incredibly inexpensive, it lacks just about any beneficial ingredient for skin, except for glycerin and a tiny amount of mineral oil. This is worth considering only if you are worried about healing dry skin, but in terms of fighting aging or wrinkles or helping skin look younger, this isn't it.
- Does not contain elegant skin-repairing, soothing, or antioxidant ingredients to help sensitive, dry skin.
- Formula is very ordinary, leaving any skin type wanting and needing far more.
Enriched with Moisturizing Silk Proteins, and a Citrus Extract blend of lemon, grapefruit & pineapple juices, this formula leaves skin looking and feeling silky smooth all day long.

Jergens has been a household name in the United States and Canada for more than a century. It fills drugstore shelves in the skin-care section with a range of products, accompanied by exceedingly low prices and relatively overblown claims.
Really, the star attraction of Jergens is their Natural Glow body lotions with built-in self-tanner. The ability to moisturize pale, dry skin while adding buildable sunless color and a touch of shine (from the mineral pigment mica) works for many skin types. To that end, Jergens offers numerous options for different skin tones, and all of them perform reliably; in the long run, however, they are just inexpensive self-tanners that contain the same ingredient for coloring skin as every other self-tanner.
Jergens also offers a wide selection of body lotions, each affordably priced and sold in generous-size containers outfitted with a pump for convenient dispensing. Regrettably, some of the body moisturizers from Jergens either have dated formulas or contain problematic ingredients research has shown cause irritation. The others are better, and definitely come close to being state-of-the-art with their range of antioxidants and plant-based emollients, but they still lack the outstanding group of ingredients that all skin types need to look and act younger.
Based on your budget, you may find some Jergens body lotions to be great choices, but watch out for some of the too-good-to-be-true claims, such as those concerning cellulite, tightening skin, and repairing all types of skin damage in one night. Those claims look good on the label, but the ingredients and the published research tells a different, far less exciting story.
