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

I Smell Like Melons

The everyday hand lotion from EOS is a 97% natural ingredient lotion that still has some allergy causing ingredients. This is a wonderful smelling lotion that is not greasy and extremely moisturizing. It lasts a long time on your skin and comes in a cute travel friendly bottle.

extremely useful review


Evolution of Smooth's (EOS') everyday hand lotion is a travel sized squeeze bottle of lotion. This is a 97% natural lotion that is Paraben free, Phthalate free, Lanolin free, dye free, hypo-allergenic, and dermatologist tested. There are some allergy causing ingredients, so those who are sensitive will want to check out the ingredients breakdown that is in the special features section.

The lotion is labeled as a hand lotion, but this is not limited to your hands. Lotion is used to help bring moisture back into your skin and give it a healthy radiant appearance. It will help with damaged, cracked, and extremely dry skin for some, but for some it might be irritating to the skin.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The everyday hand lotion comes in a bottle that is 2.5" wide, 3.5" tall, and 0.75" tall with 1.5 oz of lotion. This bottle lays flat in the palm of your hand. The color of the bottle varies to the scent, cucumber melon is green, berry is pink, and unscented is blue. To dispense your lotion you pull the tab on the top. This then flips open and you must squeeze the bottle for your desired amount. It is easy to squeeze too much, so be careful. The lotion itself is thick and creamy. You can rub it in easily and there is no greasy feel left behind. After it is applied it leaves your skin feeling velvety soft.

Taste / Aroma

There are three scent options available cucumber melon, berry, and unscented. I currently only have the cucumber melon. Cucumber melon is always my top pick for scents aside from Cocoa butter. As soon as you pop the top off and begin to squeeze you can smell the Earthy, Fruity melon scent. There really is no scent of cucumber, but cucumber is always really mild. All you can smell is melons. This is not an over powering smell, but it lingers around. Your skin will smell like this for hours. Passerby's will notice your fruity smell with a hint of perfume.

This lotion should not be ingested, but should you lick your skin, you will taste perfume and creamy lotion. This is not overwhelming to the pallet, but it is not pleasant either. I advise against licking this lotion.


This everyday hand lotion last for hours making you skin feel soft, smooth, and looking radiant. You will need to reapply this lotion as needed, but it last a decent amount of time. For the best results with any lotion, you should apply it after a shower and then reapply as needed. Should you want to wash this lotion off rinsing could be enough, but you might want to shower to completely remove it.

The best quality about this lotion is the delicious smell. I could just smell the cucumber melon all day long. I look forward to ordering the other two scents as well. I like the bottle's unique shape. It is like a rock, but it is a lotion bottle. I can't think of a single con except for the taste, but you should not ingest this lotion anyhow.

As I have mentioned before, I suffer from eczema. This stops me from being able to use many types of lotions, body washes, deodorants, and many other personal care items that aren't for sensitive skin. I am happy to report that so far none of the EOS products have given me a rash or caused my eczema to break out worse. This might not be the case for everyone, since we are all different.
Follow-up commentary
I carry this lotion in my purse. I still love it. I don't use it regularly, so I still have some left. There isn't much in the bottle. So, if you use too much lotion at a time...this is a little expensive for that. Luckily, you can pick it up at your local super center for much cheaper.
