When a man recommends a body lotion, it is such an oddity of nature, that I take notice. I didn’t think men gave that much thought to lotion, but here was this older guy who had a very strong recommendation. I was leaving that uniquely suburban shopping experience of Costco and he was the person who was checking my receipt to make sure that I didn’t steal anything. It’s always a slightly uncomfortable moment. Maybe someone slipped something into my cart when I wasn’t looking. It’s like when they ask you at airport security if your bag has been out of your possession. Well, mostly not, except for the bellman, the taxi driver, and the airport shuttle driver. I’ve seen those movies where someone slips drugs into another person’s bag and suddenly an innocent person ends up in a Thai prison doing 3 years hard labor. Makes you nervous.
Luckily, my receipt passed inspection and he pulled out my lotion bottle and said, “You are going to loooove this! My wife and I have been using for the past 3 years and we wouldn’t use anything else. It will make your feet as smooth as a baby’s behind.” After that I was pretty excited about my new lotion experiment. And true to his word, my feet are indeed coming into baby butt territory since using this for a week. The secret is the 12% lactic acid formula, which gently exfoliates and hydrates skin.
It’s available at many drugstores and big box stores like Target for $13, so no worries if you’re not a Costco member. If you’re heading out for vacation soon and in need of winter skin overhauling, take this guy’s advice. Your skin and feet will be ready for showing in no time.
