So, since I'm slimming down (and yes -- already! go me!) I've decided I need to step it up with the moisturizing. I've known I should since my whole lovely surgical menopause kicked in; I made a vow to do so, but... I'm so very picky about lotion. I hate going from a clean shower to feeling sticky and stinky with some kind of cheap lotion. (I've even tried to love LUSH and Burt's Bees, but um, I think I prefer the nice synthetic ones that aren't mostly made out of olive oil, actually.)

I was going to cave and order some of Make Me Smooth's amazingly gentle Baby Fluff, but augh, they're closed for several months! Poo.

Looks like Olay's Quench -- unscented/sensitive skin -- gets good reviews, and I'll probably pick up some of their fancier eye cream because, well, I could use some help there.

I'm rather tempted to run out today and snag the lotion and use that as an excuse to go look for the Tim-Burton-Alice-in-Wonderland OPI nail polishes. But it's so grey and nasty and I've still got a bit of a cold, so I'll probably wait until it's nicer out.

Wooo -- long nails, eyecreams and diets! I feel like a real grown-up lady!

Origins does some good moisturizer, it always just vanishes into my skin after a shower. My post-menopausal mother loves this stuff:

Being allergic to all that nasty natural stuff, I use Moisturel. It soaks in fast and doesn't leave that nasty feeling.

Sarna Sensitive is similar, but less moisturizing and more numbing.

I have sensitive skin and have been using Olay moisturizers for years. It's not too expensive and does a good job (I guess anyway...people always think I'm younger than I am).
