Ever get taken in by the products in the checkout line? Of course you have because they are designed to entice you into making that spur of the moment purchase. They sucked me in today and I’m willing to admit it. What was it that dragged me in…that I somehow couldn’t resist on this trip to Target? Berry blossom scented, gluten Free EOS hand lotion. My hands were cracked from the cold and it was EOS…no more reasoning needed on my part at that moment in time.
If you haven’t heard yet, I am addicted to EOS lip balm smooth spheres so I figured it couldn’t hurt to try their lotion. I’m not a fan of pink, which is probably the only thing that made me think twice about it, but their smooth, futuristic style packaging took me in…again. The portable pod is currently only available in berry blossom, fresh flowers and cucumber but maybe they’ll expand the line if it catches on.
On the obvious upside, it is gluten free. Other pros include, the scent is very light and pleasant. I think a number of lotions either smell funky or are over fragranced. That wasn’t the case. It is also a thick consistency that holds its shape but isn’t greasy like many others that have that characteristic. In addition, the lid snaps on securely so I’m not concerned that it is going to leak into my handbag.
The cons? It was a couple bucks for 1.5 ounces (although I will point out that’s on the cheaper end if you are hooked on Bath and Body Works portable lotions). I also sense that when it gets to the end, I am going to have trouble getting out the last bit of lotion because the plastic isn’t very pliable.
Overall, the baby skin soft feel after using it is unusually silky, but plenty of lotions are cheaper. It is a trade off and depends on how much you are willing to pay for the result. A lot of people seem to be thoroughly addicted to it just like I am with the lip balms. Judge for yourself.
