    Orphan Fat was my punk band I formed in juvy.

    seriously, that pictures screams “here’s what happened to me when I got drunk on spring break with the football team”.

    You know, I’ve found that orphan fat is getting harder and harder to find because the orphanage down the street doesn’t feed the kids things to fatten them up. Pft! Some people are so insensitive about the needs of others.

    I will have to check this out. Everyone needs a good moisturizer. What really sold me? The photo of the different blobs on the arm.

    It just sold me for different reasons.

      Again, I can’t take credit for the blobs. That was some other person’s brilliant porn, er, photo.

      And orphan fat is so precious BECAUSE no one feeds them properly. But expensive. The witch took my soul for a year supply, but to my defense, it was REALLY dry that winter.

    Nice. I may check this out. What’s kept me from wanting to peel off the skin from my legs this winter is African black soap with shea butter. It’s even really good on the face. I use this brand:

    I discovered them at a holiday gift fair a few years ago, but some of their products are in Duane Reade/Walgreens. It’s a little weird using black soap, but I got used to it.

      Ooh, thanks, I’ll try that! Winter sucks, spring has allergies, summer’s too hot, fall allergies again. I can’t win. Every little bit helps!

    does it list all of that “no fragrance, no lanolin, no dyes, parabens, formaldahyde” stuff?

    My allergist told me to start getting Vanicreme, which is super thick so it lasts a couple months, and since I get a rash from looking at the outdoors, or any kind of pretty bathroom products, its all I can use so far. But its also $20 a bottle.

      Ah, you, my fragile little flower, let me see..I think it’s based out of New Jersey so probably not. HA! (I’m allowed to say that because I’m from NJ and I know people who know people.)

      It says “non-cmedogenic and non-irritating”… Does that help?

    I used to use a lotion made of unicorn souls and the used sleeve-tissues of retired nuns. But then they became all commercial…

    Since I live in Prague, a city which has a winter dryer than Bob Newhart, I will order this post-haste!

    My dermatologist recommended this and I thought he was just getting me to buy something he owned stock in, but perhaps I should think again.

    Oh dear…judging by the blobs in that picture some people may need a bit of medication.

    It’s nice to finally have an alternative to orphan fat. Now to find an alternative to the Elizabeth Bathory blood-of-virgins youth serum bath.

    I’ve never heard anyone call it ‘skin’ lotion. Body lotion, maybe, but skin? Isn’t that implied? Maybe this is a regional thing.

    The best qualities of a skin care lotion is always: odorless, thin based texture, long lasting moisture, and hypoallergenic to avoid allergic reactions. More people these days are prone to skin allergies that ever, too much pollution perhaps or too much crap in cosmetic products. Your description sounded wonderful, will have to try it out! ~ from a beauty junkie 😉
