SWAV Loves: C.O. Bigelow Lemon Hand Treatment

Labels: , , , , ,


It's winter. This statement alone can make most normal/combo skin turn "dry" or "very very dry" in a short amount of time. Forced hot air indoor heating and unpleasantly cold cracking temperatures outside can wreak havoc on skin, we know this. So what do you do when your hands and nails get dry from the cold? Reach for some soothing hand cream, of course!

Wait... stop! Ladies, put down the L'Occitane! Let's be truthful for a second please... the metal container is wasteful... it's hard to get the product out. It doesn't smell that great, at least, not to me it doesn't... and it doesn't soak in that fast; bottom line: this stuff is expensive, thick, and greasy. If you are satisfied with your hand cream, you can stop reading now. If you are looking for something more, please, hear me out.

C.O. Bigelow's Lemon Body Cream is a cult favorite... and with good reason. It smells wonderful, lemony-fresh with a hint of cream: like a fresh lemony dessert. Their Lemon Sugar Body Scrub has won awards from several magazines. C.O. Bigelow must be on to something here! That's why when I tried their Lemon Hand Treatment ($16 for 3oz), I almost instantly fell in love.

The tube claims that it is an "Ultra moisturizing and skin-brightening formula"... now, I don't know how much of that is true, but let me say this -- This stuff is an excellent hand cream. It absorbs very quickly and doesn't feel greasy at all, it is almost like a light lotion. If you suffer from dry cuticles, a dab of this lotion will moisturize them fast. It smells light and pleasant and contains lemon oil/extracts, grape seed oil, and licorice extract. The scent is not overly foodie or strong, so you won't feel weird about applying in public (unlike Burt's Bees Almond Milk Hand Creme or Jaqua's Pink Buttercream Frosting Hand Cream). Try it out!
