Many years ago in 2003 I received a Kidney Transplant, for which I am very grateful. After the first year on Immunosuppressants, I started developing a red rash on my face. The dermatologist said I had rosacea and needed a more gentle way to clean my skin, especially on my face and body. Immunosuppressants make my skin more susceptible to skin damage, drying out, cancer, and so forth. He recommended Dove Beauty Bar Soap. So I’ve been using nothing but Dove since then.
I discovered that cucumber and green tea were fantastic for skin and found Dove’s Cucumber and Green Tea bar soap! Stores are selling these bars for up to $5 a bar. Luckily, Amazon to the rescue! I found this on sale for $10 for 6 bars, bringing down the price to $1.67 per bar. That’s within my social security budget.
I also found an old favorite underarm deodorant from years ago. PowerStick disappeared from grocery stores and found a new home in those dollar type stores. Since I moved to Seattle-Tacoma-Friday Harbor, they aren’t found anywhere and was using whatever cheaper deodorant there was in stores. Low and behold, PowerStick shows up on Amazon! The price was $15 for 6 tubes, which brings the price to $2.50, still cheaper than what I could find in a store.
Amazon has some amazing prices, if you look for them and watch the sales prices over a few months.
