Product Review: eos Everyday Hand Lotion

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: eos
Name: : Everyday Hand Lotion
Size: 1.5 fl oz / 44 ml
Price: approx. $3.99 USD

"Infused with shea butter and oat extract, this hand lotion also has Vitamins C and E in a non-greasy, soothing and fast absorbing cucumber-scented cream. Dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic and paraben-free. The unique pebble shape packaging is designed to be carried around conveniently." (press kit info)

I'm a huge fan of eos products. Their lip balms and shaving creams always have a place in my routine. Not only do I love their products, but their packaging is just adorable (and not to mention practical - imagine a shaving cream package without metal = no rust!).

So, I wasn't surprised when eos came out with this really cool looking hand lotion. Shaped like a handy little pebble, the packaging is convenient for toting along in a purse, and is nicely designed to fit into your hand comfortably.

But of course, part of my job as a product reviewer is to look past the packaging and see if the product measures up.

To Purr About:
- 97% natural
- lotion is extremely light and absorbs very quickly
- light cucumber scent
- package is small and slim and convenient for carrying around

Claws Out:
- small package means there's not a lot of lotion in each pebble
- pretty expensive considering small amount of lotion

Final Comments:
As with most people, I generally use a lot of hand lotion because my hands take quite a beating during the day (especially in the winter). All that work, chores, exposure, etc. means that hands need a lot of care.

This lotion is very light and absorbs quickly, making it an ideal hand lotion. It's non-greasy and comes in a light, pleasant cucumber scent.

I do love the packaging, and find it quite convenient to carry around in a purse. However, for $4, you don't get a lot of lotion, especially since I tend to use so much of it. I ran out pretty quickly.

However, if you try to limit how often you use it and use another hand lotion when you're at home or work (I leave a large bottle of Jergens at work), then this little eos pebble is nice to take in your bag when you're on the go.

The lotion itself is great. I wonder if it comes in a larger package that I can use at home?

Anonymous - I saw the EOS hand lotion & the lip balms at the most random place - RW & Co. the clothing store in Yorkdale Mall today. Was very suprised to see them. They were up front at the cash.

Hope you find them!
