Is the EOS hand lotion as good as the lip balms?

Remember when I reviewed the EOS lip balm some time ago? I STILL keep one in my purse. Aside from being super moisturizing and keeping chapped lips at bay, I just love the spherical awesomeness of that balm. I got a chance to test drive the balm’s big sister…a hand lotion! Let’s take a closer look to see if it’s worth your pennies.

Like its sibling, the pebble-shaped hand lotion is designed to fit in your hand, which it does perfectly.

It’s paraben-free and includes oat, aloe, shea butter and Vitamin E and Vitamin C. And just like the balm, you can get it from Walgreens, Rite Aid, and My thoughts? It’s not as absorbent as I would have liked for it to be. It was a wee bit watery and wasn’t thick enough to tackle my super dry skin.

I realize that this isn’t the lotion’s fault. I mean, I have SERIOUSLY dry skin and need super creamy lotions. Still, for $3.99, I’d definitely scoop these up for Mama Clumps and mildy ashy friends and family members.

Whatcha think? Have you grabbed one of these yet?


  • Not the biggest fan of scents but I’ve really grown to love thees hand lotions. They leave my hands soft but not greasy unlike most hand creams but I don’t think it’ll be enough during the winter time.

      Totally agree. My winter-time hands are the driest!

    I love the round shape and small size of the bottle but I, too, would love to see a creamier formula. I pried the bottle open (using my very handy letter-opener) just to test out my theory – yes, it’s refillable… so I’ll be recycling the bottle using the EOS body lotion. It’s slightly thicker and has the same cucumber scent as the hand lotion.

      I didn’t even think about re-filling it with something else. What a genius idea!

    They also have them at Ulta, which is nice because if you use one of their $3.50 off $10 coupons, you basically get it for 50c and that is pretty fab.

    I was in a store in Langly, Wa. and tried the Holistic Honey Lotion from Made from Earth. I fell in love with the smell first. I have a sensitive nose and thought I smelled like a Pez! I made everyone smell me and they agreed, it smells wonderful! I love the way it feels on my skin, it sinks into your skin real quick and my skin is immediatly softer. I am a lotion fanatic and use lotion at least 6-9x a day at work due to many bathroom visits. I wish it was a little less expensive, but well worth the cost in my opinion:)
