Ever since last year, I've become hand lotion obsessed. I love me some body lotion, and in the past, I would just use the excess for my hands and go on with my day. I never really thought to use a separate lotion for my hands, until I needed a new use for my make-shift moisturizer. I learned that you should always read labels, especially when it's used on your skin. Basically, the lotion I was using was either for your body or hands, and I used it on my face, which was way oilier than needed. So after I learned that I need to use an actual moisturizer, I used the lotion for what it was for and used it on my hands since they were drier than I would like (it was an especially cold winter).
Long story short, I wanted to try all different hand lotions, seeking for the best, and just to try because I had really started blogging then and I just love to give everything a shot. One day I was shopping my hallway closet for more body lotions to try, and came across the True Blue Spa hand lotion: Look Ma, New Hands.
At first glance, it looks adorable. It's a nice size to test the product, and the colors are both my favorite and actually one of my favorite color combinations. The tube itself I have mixed feelings for. I prefer when products are see-through (or at least when I hold it up to a light, I can be able to see how much is inside), so the fact that it's opaque was a bit difficult to see how much was left. However, because it was a squeezy tube, I was able to smush it and bend it so that I could use every last bit that I could. But that's just me being picky...
The product itself was a game changer for me. Instantly my hands became soft and well moisturized. The formula is fairly thick, so it left a bit of a wet/sticky feeling if too much was on, but my skin soaked it up fast enough for me to be fine with it. Using it at night, before bed, was the best time to use it, as I felt as if my hands truly were new when I woke up. I found that I barely needed a pea-sized amount, so it lasted a long time.
Where can you find this? Well, Bath & Body Works sell True Blue Spa products, and if it's not in stores, it certainly is on their website. The design on the tube has changed a few times since I got mine, but the product still remains to be outstanding. ,I can see this lotion becoming one of those products that I always go back to, and I can't recommend it enough.
