A fluffy decadent cream, that smells like a whipped lemon soufflé. It's super hydrating but doesn't leave hands sticky. I can't stop sniffing my hands when I apply. I usually use this sparingly for my body, it's not a huge tube, goes on sale often.
This shea butter smells so good and applies well and leaves your skin super soft
The scent is amazing, but kinda a greasy texture. Great moisture at first but need to reapply frequently.
Ah! My new favorite Hand Cream!
First of all, can't get enough of the smell! The smell alone just makes me want to re-apply this stuff as often as possible. It smells identical to lemon meringue pie or a lemon tart! It's a nice subtle smell though so it's perfect!
Not only is the smell great, but the cream itself is of high quality and isn't greasy like many other hand creams I have tried.
Also, a little goes a long way so I don't mind paying the $10 a bottle. All of my friends love it too. :) Highly recommended.
I. Love. This. Stuff.
It smells like lemon cake (or pie) and it spreads wonderfully on my skin.
I am also a freak about lotions being more natural and less chemical-y, so I'm always on the search for a good lotion that doesn't have extra chemicals like parabens or petroleum in there to spread on my skin.
I'd rather have as much natural stuff absorbing into my skin than chemicals that may cause cancer, or problems later on. Did you know that our body sucks up and absorbs pounds of lotions in our lifetime!? Scary.
This one hits the spot. It spreads really easily (I bought 3 each of the bottles pictured above)
3 Hand Creams in Lemon Creme, 3 Body Lotions in Lemon Creme, and it was on sale at Shoppers for $8 each.
The better deal is the Body Lotion, you get triple the amount for the same price, but I needed a small squeezable tube to carry around with me and make people go "Mmmmmmmmmmmm" when I put it on. :P
Once, I accidentally licked it, it smelled so good.
I do notice that it isn't as silky or as spreadable as other chemical-laden lotions, but for the naturalness, the smell, AND THE PRICE, it is totally worth it.
I spread it on my legs and arms nightly, and after I get out of the shower.
It will leave a bit of a waxy film on your skin, but that's meant to keep in the moisture.
I can only echo MissChickie's comments about this product. I have a sampler too and will definitely be buying a replacement when it's used up. I have always used Aveeno until now, which is a fabulous body lotion, but it was not powerful enough for winter-dry hands. Watkins is wonderful for this and absorbs really quickly. I absolutely recommend this product!
This is hands down (pardon the pun) the most delicious hand and body cream I've ever used. It smells amazing like lemon meringue pie and quickly soaks into the skin making hands and body soft and delicately scented. I have a tiny sample pot I carry with me everywhere and people always comment on how dreamy it smells. I have extremely dry hands and I find this keeps them nicely moisturized but not greasy.
J.R Watkins Apothecary line carries a number of natural and organic products that are just divine. A decent sized pot sells at Shoppers for $10 or you can get it online at drugstore.com (click on buy it) for $7ish (USD).
