I am new to the concept of “wet skin moisturizers,” so this time, I picked up one from Jergens to experiment. Wet skin moisturizers have to be used immediately after bathing or washing face. Your skin cells have a chance to expand and open from the steam and heat and such a process provides an easy pathway for the wet skin moisturizer to do its magic by deeply penetrating the skin. It might feel as if the moisturizer is coming off, it’s simply sinking deep and you should notice smooth and soft skin with just a couple uses. Just towel dry once you’re done. I picked up Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer for fair to medium skin tone.
Specially developed for use on wet skin. When blended with water, Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer glides on to instantly lock in moisture and gradually build natural-looking color each day. Use in place of your daily body moisturizer and subtle color will gradually appear. Once ideal color is reached, use every other day to maintain.

My Experience with Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer:
It comes in a decent palm-sized tube with a flip cap. I find this kind of tube packaging very good to travel with. Though I know I cannot refill it once done, yet I prefer this size and shape to travel with. Squeezing out the product is very easy here and the cap closes firmly with a click. It’s a simple tube, nothing fancy. This wet moisturizer comes in two tones – “Fair to Medium” and “Medium to Dark.”
The texture is quite watery and water has been listed as the first ingredient in the list, so that explains why it spreads like water. It has to be applied just after shower when the skin is still wet – a tad bit goes a long way. It spreads on the skin easily and let the skin absorb all the goodness. No need to pat the skin dry after applying this moisturizer, it will dry by itself. If you feel there is excess of it on your skin, then you can pat some of it.
This product feels a little heavy on the skin. It does makes my skin soft and hydrating by locking the moisture in, but it feels heavy. The weather is getting warmer here in Ahmedabad, so I will prefer using this more in winters. It is definitely going in my winter bag to be used again after almost an year!
An important thing that I would like to mention here is that if you apply it on your face, it will appear dark. After doing some research, I found out that it is a mild tanning product; however, such a thing hasn’t been mentioned on the tube – it just says that this moisturizer imparts a subtle color. Considering this, I feel this product is not suitable for us unless you are too pale and want some tan on your skin.
It smells like normal creams/moisturizers, nothing specific. You can feel the moisturization effect on your skin for a good 3-4 hours.
Pros of Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer:
- The concept of wet moisturizer is interesting.
- Suitable for winters.
- Also works as a tanning cream.
Cons of Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer:
- Not much suitable for a country like India where tanning isn’t very necessary.
- Feels heavy on skin.
Would I Recommend Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer?
I will recommend it to you if you are looking for a very subtle tanning product, otherwise you can skip this product. I will finish it by next winters and will not repurchase.
