Nice Neck, Ashley!

A small mistake has been made and my neck will pay the price for my night-time lotion lathering.

I have mentioned this before (who am I kidding? I devoted an ENTIRE post to this before) but I HATE, HATE, HATE dry skin of any kind, especially on my face/neck. Once I get the notion to lotion, I will stop at nothing until my mission is complete. Enter hilarity…

Last night I couldn’t fall asleep for whatever reason and I noticed that my neck was feeling a little dry; it was very cold for a few days over the weekend which always seems to dry out my skin. Anyway, I peeled myself out of the bed and roamed through complete darkness to grab the face lotion (or so I thought).



I meant to grab this...





but instead, I grabbed THIS!!


When I woke up my neck looked similar to an oompa-loompa shade of orange. I quickly figured out what had happened when I saw the damn Jergen’s out on the counter – I really slathered it on (and rather unevenly) hence the unnatural skin tone that I am now sporting at work! I tried to scrub it off as much as possible and I did make some progress. Oh well…

Oh my gosh I feel SO bad for laughing...that is so something my husband would accidently do hahaha! He once accidently put icy hot on an allergic reaction because he thought the tube looked like the benadryl cream. Whoops!!!

Oh no! That stinks!! I have heard before that toothpaste or lemon juice will take off the color from tanning lotion.

like the other commenters said, "oh no!" but "too funny!" thanks for sharing your lotion debacle. btw, I love Aveeno Ultra Calming! my skin is so dry all the time (but oily and sensitive too, geesh) so I really slather it on. I could have easily made the same mistake as you except I luckily don't keep my Jergens natural glow next to my Aveeno.
