Raise your hand if you hate greasy, stinky lotion! Me! Pick me! I hate lotion that is smelly and leaves me feeling and looking like a grease ball (I mean really, who actually likes that feature!?). Over the years, after lots of trial and error and probably hundreds of dollars being thrown away, I’ve found 2 hand creams and 2 body lotions that I absolutely love!
The first is my every day hand cream from the Body Shop. This entire line is great but my favorite is the Almond Hand & Nail Cream. It’s not an overwhelming scent but a subtle warm almond scent. I can easily wear this with perfume or body spray without having a battle of the scents. It quickly soaks into my skin and doesn’t leave a residue or greasy feeling.
This stress relief lotion from Bath and Body Works is my night hand cream. I’ll be honest, I’m not a big fan of the scent but since I don’t sleep with my hand near my face, I don’t really notice. I’m not sure if it actually helps me “relax and unwind” like the bottle claims but I wake up with soft hands and that’s good enough for me.
I love this shea body butter from The Body Shop. I use this body butter mainly after the shower right before bed. It does have a bit of a greasy feeling at first but soaks in quickly. I love to use this after is shave my legs as well. The shea scent isn’t overpowering or offensive which is nice if I need a little extra moisture in the morning.
I love the Pearanormal Activity lotion from Gud (made by the makers of Burt’s Bee’s). The scent is amazingly pear scented which is why I don’t mind the lingering scent. This lotion is not one to be worn with perfume or body spray (or at least none that I have). The scent if very strong but stays around like a body mist. It’s a great summer scent and is very inexpensive.
What’s your favorite lotion, body butter or hand cream? I’d love to try out some new ones.
See you soon!
