Here is a product that I just found and have fallen in love with. It is called BODY GLIDE.

This stuff is amazing. If you have a problem with chaffing then this stuff will amaze you. Just rub it on anywhere that you have a problem and the chaffing is gone completely. It is not sticky or slimy or anything like that. It does not come off in the water so if you are hiking and jump into a lake to cool off and then continue on your hike you do not even need to reapply.

I can not say enough about this stuff. Amazon has it, but it was more expensive than I wanted to pay so I went to Body Glides site here and clicked on the link to find a store near me that carries it. I found two stores that have it and both of them raved about it when I called to see if they had any in stock. I will never be without this stuff again.

I guess I'll give in and look for a photo similar to mine...

Okay, this looks nearly identical: Amazon.com: Amco Over the Sink Colander: Home & Garden

I have one of those, I really like it a lot.

I've seen those folding things at stores when employees are folding the clothing but never seen a commercial for them. That could come in handy.....I'm off to do an Ebay search....thanks!



Update on the face cream after 2 weeks........no more additional changes in the scar but its so nice that its not as noticeable that even if it doesn't completely fill in I never imagined it to fill in as much as it did so I'm very thankful.
I have noticed the worry line I have between my eyes is not as deep as it was.
I bought the new visibly firming night cream yesterday and used it for the first time last night. I'll let you know more after using it for awhile.

I paid $5 at Eckerd's a couple years ago. You might find it cheaper locally than on ebay.

I made one of those out of cardboard and duct tape. I cost me pennies to make and took about 2 minutes. It worked like a charm.

I'm glad it worked! In this case though, I'll save my money on other things and pay the $5 for this! (Although, if I had known how to do it before I bought it, who knows--I might have made one too!).

I'm going to have to try that sometime. I've seen it before, but I haven't tried it. The flip and fold thing is just as fast though, and you don't end up with the sleeve behind the whole shirt. I want to try this method, but since I already have the thing, I may as well keep using it! Thanks Andy!

Can I revive this thread? Has anybody tried Curel "Natural Healing" lotions? For some time they were in green bottles, and I just LOVE them. I can tell you, all lotions are not created equal! There was a cucumber and Aloe version that I cannot find now, and I hope it has not gone by the wayside.

I would also like to plug something called Batter Blaster (Google it, last time I tried to post a link, I think I got in trouble). It's organic wheat pancake batter in a can like Reddi Whip, so you squirt it right into the pan. Now, I am all about homemade goodness, but we sort of "camp" on our boat during the warmer months, and so this found its way into my cart for the cooler. FABULOUS product, and how many convenience products are even remotely healthy? Try it with homemade jam! :)

Thanks for the hints, AMS........I use a lot of Curel products and they're great over here where dry skin is a real problem.......will have to try Batter Blaster when I get home......sounds easy-peasy esp. if you have a hungry child that wants to eat NOW........

A product that I've found really works is Sudden Change Eye Gel with Green Tea.......it has the consistency of aloe and feels so cool under poor tired eys that have bags under them from lack of sleep or allergies......really does help to reduce puffiness and lines......found it at Walgreen's---comes in a .75oz/21gm jar but the box that it comes in is bigger..........just plain tea bags over the eyes works too and feels great but who has time to lay down in the morning after waking up? Put this stuff on and go........
