NEW OBSESSION: HARD LOTION
After getting lost in a tangled web of some amazing blogs last week, I happened to stumble on three different mentions of Renee Harris’ MadeOn Skincare hard lotion. At first, I didn’t pay much attention to it, but by the third mention, I had to check it out. Hard lotion is shaped into a bar (like soap). Your body heat softens the lotion so you can rub it into your skin. Renee at MadeOn Skincare describes her hard lotion this way:
“The hard lotion bar has three simple ingredients: shea butter, coconut oil and beeswax. That’s it! Shea butter and coconut oil are known edible emollients. They soften and soothe dry skin and are gentle enough to rub over skin cuts and cracks. The beeswax emulsifies the other two ingredients to create a beautiful combination to smooth your skin. You’ll be surprised to learn that this is all you need to get your hands back to work.”
I fell in love with the premise, and just HAD to try it! When I received my package of MadeOn’s products (I got a couple of BeeSilk bars, an Au Chocolat bar, a Natural lip balm, and a Peppermint lip balm), I literally squealed with excitement (at the mailbox)! I haven’t had a chance to try them all out yet, but everything smells so good! I took the small BeeSilk bar to work today and have already made some hard lotion converts! I’ve even been able to convince my husband to try out the BeeSilk bar. He must like it, too, because he has started to ask me for it on a daily basis!
Update: I’ve been using the hard lotion for a little over a week now, and not only is my skin so smooth and hydrated, I’m still finding out great new uses for it! Hard lotion use #143: relieve sunburn! Hard lotion use #87: soothe bug bite itch!
How has hard lotion changed the way you moisturize?
