Beauty For A Buck Deal Of The Day At Walgreens

If you're still searching for loose change under the sofa cushions, in the back seat of your car, at the bottom of your purse, and so on.....we feel your pain.

So, your BeautyTipToday can be found at your local Walgreens drugstore. We call it 'Beauty for a Buck.'

And in this case, actually 99 cents!

Our featured item today:

Walgreens Cocoa Butter Moisturizing Cream.

We did a little research on the benefits of cocoa butter. And if you having been using it, continue to do so. Cocoa butter is full of great things for your skin. We found that out at the blog:

"Cocoa butter is, first and foremost, arguably one of the best natural emollients to be found. It’s a traditional moisturizer, as the EGCG blog points out, used for centuries to keep people’s skin in many nations soft and protected. And because it melts at body temperature, it is more easily and readily absorbed by the skin. Its natural, subtle chocolate scent also makes your skin smell like dessert, and who doesn’t want to smell like a cupcake?"

We agree, the scent is delicious. But why blow lots of money on fancy cocoa butter creams? There are gazillions out there in expensive spas and salons and fine dept. stores. We recommend Walgreens Cocoa Butter Moisturizing Cream because it delivers what the other costlier ones give you, and that's the same ingredient----cocoa butter---at very similar concentrations.

That's what cosmetic chemist Jim Hammer says. "It's a rich, fatty emollient that helps seal in moisture without leaving the skin feeling greasy. This should hydrate dry skin just as effectively as the most expensive versions."

Okay, thank you, Jim. That's good enough for us, since the information is coming from a reliable and respected cosmetic chemist.
