The lotion that works so well for Tim’s skin — Philosophy’s When Hope is Not Enough with omega oils that soothe his dermis — has been discontinued.
I called a local Philosophy retail store to get their advice on how shelf stable the stuff was. The lady (who also bemoaned the loss of that product) said their stuff was generally intended for no more than one year.
So we bought a year’s worth of the stuff. All at once.
I found the best price at the DermStore: $27.50 per bottle (down from $35).
Mr. Rebates had a 10% off coupon, plus we’ll get 10% cash back — plus 20% of Tim’s rebate since I referred him.
Even with all that, it will be about $588.
To be fair, that’s just over $11 per week. And there’s that whole Itching-Over-Every-Square-Inch-Of-His-Body-Yes-Even-When-He’s-Sleeping thing. So I’m willing to pay for quality.
I just wasn’t really planning to pay it all at once.
I’m off to wait for the next — not “other,” next — shoe to drop. Preferably not on our heads… or wallets.
