Some lotions are too sheer. They leave a faint scent, but don’t actually moisturize. It’s as if you wasted your time applying anything at all. Some lotions are too greasy. They leave such a thick trail of goo behind, you feel like you’re being smothered by The Blob all day long. (I know you know what I mean.) Hello J.R. Watkins’ Hand & Body Cream. This lotion’s just right. The consistency is perfect: thick, but not too thick, silky, but not like silicone, and creamy, but not overwhelmingly so. My favorite scent is Aloe & Green Tea. The scent is clean and refreshing, not nauseating, and it doesn’t interfere with my perfume. And the best part? J.R. Watkins is a natural apothecary, so the products are full of only the good stuff, none of the bad. For an extra push in the hydration department, try the Body Cream—the Lemon Cream scent is beyond delicious. This lotion absorbs immediately into the skin, with no shiny residue, but leaves your skin feeling seriously moisturized for the entire day. Oh yeah, and the lotions are totally affordable at $8.99 for the Hand & Body Lotion and $7.99 for the Body Cream. Available at Ulta stores and the North Dallas Target or at jrwatkins.com.
