extremely useful review


This adorable little pebble is chock full of rich lotion to quench your dry skin with the delicious smell of fresh cucumber and succulent melon. With natural ingredients and moisturizing properties, this will leave your hands feeling refreshed, supple and silky soft.
Though this is advertised as a hand lotion, it can be used on other areas of the body. With that said, I do not recommend this for use on your face as this contains no SPF or sun protection.
I love this lotion. It comes in a super cute container and smells incredible. I keep this little pebble in my purse since it is the perfect size and doesn’t take up hardly any room.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The texture of this lotion is on the thin side but is surprisingly moisturizing and smooth. Almost a conditioner like consistency. It doesn't feel oily at all, unless you apply to much, but this can easily be fixed by spreading the excess to and past your wrists.
The bottle is easy to dispense and squeeze. But be careful, just a little too much pressure can have this spewing everywhere!
    • Smooth
    • Velvety

Taste / Aroma

The lotion I bought, the cucumber-melon scent, smells exactly as you would expect. Without the plastic undertone scents!
It smells slightly more melon than cucumber and smells natural and wonderful. It smells the same when applied as it does when it's in the bottle. The smell is strong enough that my boyfriend could smell it when I opened it across the room(about 8 feet away).
I wouldn't recommend eating this as it is not flavored or intended to be ingested at all.
    • Smells good


This lotion has a long lasting fragrance as well as silky, smooth moisturizing ingredients. A little jelly bean sized dot is all you need to coat the front and back of your hands to your wrists.
The smell itself lasts about 4 hours or so on me, doing everyday tasks such as typing & cooking. It will need to be reapplied when you wash your hands though.
If you add too much, you can simply wipe it off with a wash cloth, dry or wet. The smell of this lasts quite a while but does not rub off on your clothes or anything, as far as I know and have experienced.
Though, I am a big fan of this lotion, this may cause quite a few allergy concerns for users with sensitive skin types. (I have included a lengthy and detailed ingredients list at the bottom.) It is 97% natural but is not hypo-allergenic.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Allergy concerns


The adorable 1.5 ounce container fits perfectly into pockets as well as purses. I carry a lot of things in my purse, like most women, my entire life is in there! This fits in perfectly, adding no extra weight or taking up unnecessary amounts of valuable space.
It's roughly the same size as the palm of my hand, I have pretty small hands. I would expect this to last a couple of months at least with average daily use, as a little drop goes a long way. I've had this for 2 months myself and I use it about 4-5 times a week and I can barely tell any amount has been used so far.
This little bottle has a a nifty little flip top for easy dispensing as well. It's easy to pop open and to close. It's also capable of being opened with one hand, but is secure enough that it won't leak.
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Recyclable
    • Travel friendly

Personal comments

Other than water, this lotion contains natural ingredients like, soybean oil, sunflower seed oil, shea butter, macadamia seed oil, coconut oil, aloe leaf juice and oat meal extract. However, even though this is advertised as being 97% natural, it also includes the following:

Glyceryl Stearate - This acts as a lubricant on the skin’s surface, which gives the skin a soft and smooth appearance. It’s commonly used in hair conditioners, mascaras and sunscreen. This is made by reacting glycerin with stearic acid, a fatty acid obtained from animal and vegetable fats and oils.
Dimethicone - This is a silicone oil that is often found in hair detangling products. It can cause allergic reactions to consumers with sensitive skin types such as, but not limited to, hives, mild itching and stinging or burning sensations. Scarily, this can also cause sudden respiratory problems in rare cases.
Glycerin - This is a simple polyol compound. It is a colorless, odorless, viscous liquid that is widely used in pharmaceutical formulations. It is also known for causing allergic reactions to those with allergies and sensitive skin types.
Cetearyl Alcohol - This one is a mixture of fatty alcohols, consisting predominantly of cetyl and stearyl alcohols and is classified as a fatty alcohol. It imparts an emollient feel to the skin and can be used in water-in-oil emulsions, oil-in-water emulsions, and anhydrous formulations. It is commonly used in hair conditioners and other hair products.
Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate - This is a versatile, FDA approved food additive. It is non-toxic, biodegradable, and typically manufactured using biorenewable feedstocks. Because SSL is a safe and highly effective food additive, it is used in a wide variety of products ranging from baked goods and desserts to pet foods.
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate - This is a very stable, oil-soluble Vitamin C ester which has anti-oxidant activity, inhibiting lipid peroxidation. Topical use can mitigate the damaging effects of UV exposure. Studies have shown it to stimulate collagen production as well as clarifying and brightening the skin by inhibiting melanogenesis (the production of pigment) thereby promoting a more even skin tone. Unlike ascorbic acid, it will not exfoliate or irritate skin.
Tocopheryl Acetate - Also known as Vitamin E acetate, It is the ester of acetic acid and tocopherol (vitamin E). It is often used in dermatological products such as skin creams. Tocopherol acetate is not oxidized and can penetrate through the skin to the living cells, where about 5% is converted to free tocopherol and provides beneficial antioxidant effects.
Retinyl Palmitate - is one of the primary antioxidants found naturally in skin. It is a combination of retinol (pure vitamin A) and palmitic acid. There is research showing it to be effective as an antioxidant and skin-cell regulator.
Fragrance (Parfum) - This one is pretty obvious. It’s mostly harmless but does cause skin reactions to some.
Carbomer - Is a generic name for synthetic high molecular weight polymers of acrylic acid used as thickening, dispersing, suspending and emulsifying agents in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.
Methylchloroisothiazolinone - This is a preservative with antibacterial and antifungal effects within the group of isothiazolinones. It’s commonly found in water-based personal care products and cosmetics.
Methylisothiazolinone - This is a powerful biocide and preservative within the group of isothiazolinones, used amongst others in shampoos and body care products.
DMDM Hydantoin - Is an organic compound belonging to a class of compounds known as hydantoins. It is used in the cosmetics industry and found in products like shampoos, hair conditioners, hair gels and skin care products.
Sodium Hydroxide - This is traditionally used in most hand soaps since the nineteenth century. It is soluble in water, ethanol and methanol. This alkali is deliquescent and readily absorbs moisture and carbon dioxide in air.

As you can see from the list above, there are many ingredients that do produce the potential to cause an allergic reaction in sensitive skin types. However, I myself have sensitive skin and this does not irritate me in the slightest. I would recommend going through your commonly used lotions or shampoos and seeing if they contain any of the ingredients you may be concerned about. If they do and you haven’t had a reaction, I would suggest to go ahead and buy this if you want to.
Follow-up commentary
For what I paid for this, you'd think I would be using this every chance I get, but there are just more options out there for less money. I still love the scent and the all natural ingredients, and it's still a mainstay in my purse. However, it's not used half as often as I wish it was and just isn't worth the money if you don't use a lot of hand lotion.
