Here is a Mother’s Day Gift idea for you. If my mom, mother-in-law or any grandmothers are reading, please stop immediately. Because this is what you are getting. This is my newest favorite lotion and it’s by J.R. Watkins. I’m sure you have seen this line carried at Target and may have even known about it before then. It’s been around, like, forever. I remember it from elementary school because my bff’s last name was Watkins and I used to always think her long lost relatives company.
This Lemon Cream Hand Cream is ridonk! As with my life, everything goes back to either desserts or rap music. This lotion, that I have been using nightly for over a week now, smells like lemon creme cookies! It smells SO good! I really want to eat it. And I probably could because it is all natural with shea and cocoa butters and oils to help protect and heal hands. I really like the texture. My oldest son started an extreme case of eczema at around 7 months old which caused me to try an abnormal amount of different lotions. This lotion is thick, without being heavy and soaks in to the skin really quickly. And it smells SO good, have I mentioned that already? I use lotion on my hands and heels every night due to excessive dryness (overshare much) so I’m looking forward to trying the salve. It is more greasy, like a thicker version of vaseline and takes longer to sink in to the skin. So I’m pretty sure if I put it on my feet and tried to walk to my kitchen it might look like I stepped on a banana peel. So I think I’ll add that to my bedtime routine. There are other varieties of these products as well, which is why I think they make the perfect Mother’s Day gift idea.
J. R. Watkins also has a blog called, Clear Conscience, where they talk about their products, their company, their employees (I LOVE that they do that!) and it is a perfect way to learn more about what makes them so special.
*I was sent some products to try out but all these opinions are mine!
