Everyday hand lotion - hand cream by Evolution of Smooth - review by favillous

Everyday? No Way!

The Everyday Hand Lotion by EOS comes in a small, 1.5 fl. oz container, which makes it perfectly suited to travel - my sister keeps a bottle of this in her purse, which is how I first came to use it. Unfortunately, for the quantity, it's a little bit ridiculous to be paying $8 for this lotion, because though it's quite nice and all-natural, it's not the holy grail of lotions, and doesn't so a noticeably better job than anything else on the market.
-Doesn't stay greasy
-97% natural
-Light smell
-Cool bottle design (good for travel)

The Everyday Hand Lotion by Evolution of Smooth is not something that I would be prone to use every day. It's 97% natural, which makes it a great choice for those with a lot of skin sensitivities, or who simply prefer to keep their bodies chemical-free. Here's a list of the ingredients, for your viewing pleasure:

Water (Eau), Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Cocoglycerides, Glyceryl Stearate, Dimethicone, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Avena Sativa (Oat) Meal Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Retinyl Palmitate, Fragrance (Parfum), Carbomer, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, DMDM Hydantoin, Sodium Hydroxide.

This lotion comes in three flavours: Berry, Cucumber Melon, and an unscented variety called "Nourish." The Cucumber Melon is the one that I've tried, (as I'm sure you can tell based on the fact that there is cucumber extract in the ingredient list) and it smells a lot like fresh melon, which doesn't make it the most practical hand lotion to wear with your Avalanche or Volcano-scented deodorant if you're male. Still, it is a light scent, and one that I wouldn't mind smelling on someone else.

The packaging is really easy to hold, and the oval shape makes it much more unique than your standard bottle of lotion. It's easy to flip the top with one hand, squeeze out a bit of lotion and close it up again, all in one fluid motion. The cucumber melon comes in a green bottle, and it's about 2 1/2" by 3 1/2" in size, which again makes it good for travel. The back of the bottle contains a list of ingredients and comes with a "peel here" information booklet with a barcode and some marketing-type information, as well as instructions for application, which is pretty easy to remove. The sticker listing the ingredients is easy to peel off as well, and doing so will mean that it doesn't get all sorts of debris stuck onto it if you carry it in a bag.

This lotion does do a good job of moisturizing chapped skin, but it's pretty runny as far as most lotions go. It's pretty easy to accidentally use too much and leave yourself with greasy hands. Luckily, the greasy feeling doesn't stay very long at all, which is an advantage over a lot of lotions that leave you feeling oily for hours. It doesn't have to be used just for your hands, of course, but in such a small quantity with such a high price tag, you won't want to be slathering this all over your legs every day. If you really like the bottle, you might try removing the cap and refilling this with something more economical.
