Lemon Cream Hand Repair Moisturizer

This product was not terrible but I would never re-purchase or recommend. First, the cream is extremely thick. It's hard to rub in, and it tends to stay on the outside of your skin. Second, it smells like the cream inside a lemon creme sandwich cookie (a lemon Oreo). A little bit fake and certainly creamy, but rather wimpy. Coupled with the thick cream feel, you feel as if you are moisturizing your hands with frosting. The packaging is less than ideal. The bottle would match better with a lighter, moister lotion. Because the lotion is so thick, and the lotion hole so fat, this lotion comes out like frosting out of a decorator's sleeve, I would much prefer a thinner hole so you could squish out the product in a skinnier line to control how much comes out. It's very hard to get toward the end of the tube. I would definitely alter the packaging shape to functionally match what's inside. If you like lemon lotion, look to Avalon Organics lemon. I've returned to that 2x after trying other lotions. I think I'll be sticking to that permanently.

Shea Butter Hand Cream - Lemon Cream

This hand cream is richer than J.R. Watkins lotions as it contains shea butter. It also contains cocoa butter, avocado & coconut oils, glycerin, and beeswax. It's free from parabens and other petroleum products and is cruelty-free. I've grown to like it during the colder months when my skin is dry. I've discovered that it works best when applied to damp skin to seal moisture in. The lemon cream fragrance is just like that of other J.R. Watkins products and smells just like lemon cake batter. I like to layer it beneath Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue EDT to make the EDT last all day - it's amazing this way. The 3.3-oz. tube is a perfect size for my purse, and I keep one there and one on my desk. Very good product, and I hope it doesn't get discontinued.

This has the same scent as all the other lemon products in this line: creamy, sweet, lemony goodness. Not fake or sharp or Lemon Pledge-like in the slightest, just like lemon merengue or some such delicious lemon dessert. Foams up well. Not particularly moisturizing, but definitely not drying. A pretty basic body wash except for the absolutely delicious, incredible smell. Alas, it doesn’t linger on my skin, but it does make my showers so much more enjoyable!
