Hey guys! *waves*
Hope ya’ll are having a glorious day. It’s a bit rainy out but, I got my life with Salted Caramel Mocha soy with several dashes of nutmeg powder from Starbucks. Rain can’t ever come between me and my coffee. *dust off brass knuckles*
Here’s my favorite lotion at the moment, J.R. Watkins Naturals Apothecary Hand & Body lotion.
I found this gem at Stop n Shop when the only things on my list was coffee creamer and lemon & lime seltzer water. Sigh. My mind and body always wonders off in the beauty section hah. And it doesnt help when the milk & eggs sections is adjacent the beauty aisle. I just cannot help myself. :\

Check out the break down in parenthesis after each ingredient listed. I love that. This all natural goodness passed the test when it comes to ashy-ness and scent. It kept the ashyness at bay for me. Was not greasy but at the same time did not lack moisture. You know how some lotions are not greasy, but they do feel good on the hands/body but within the hour, your hands/body look like you never put anything on it. I really loathe that. This is creamy, makes the hands and body feel smooth and pretty much part of my bed time ritual to slather it on. The scent I picked up was Lemon Cream. I was also going to pick up Aloe & Green Tea but just opted for one. Usually I go HAM on new things but I just wanted to test this out then go HAM later. On the website, J.R Watkins Naturals Apothecary do have other scents: Lavender, Grapefruit, Coconut Milk & Honey and Pomergrante & Acai. These were not in the store but I will definitely make an order for Grapfruit, Coconut Milk & Honey and Pomergranate & Acai.
Let’s get back to the scent. It smells SO delish. Like lemon cake with the lemon frosting and on the side is lemon cookies. Gahhhh, I’m smelling it while typing and I just cannot get enough. If I find perfume with this scent, I will buy a years worth. This makes your eyes roll back if you’re a foody gourmand luvr like I am. It also has a pale yellow appearance like a lemon cake batter. Mmm mm.
And here’s the kicker, it’s Paraben Free, Phthalate Free, Propylene Glycol Free and Dye Free AND Cruelty Free. Win, win and WIN.
J.R. Watkins Naturals Apothecary not only have Bath & Body products, they also have kitchen condiments such as extracts, herbs & spice etc. Health products for cold/cough, pain reliever etc and Home Care such as laundry soap, bathroom cleaner etc. All natural!
Whenever you get the chance, check out the website and or your nearest Stop n Shop. This goodness is so worth the $10 for 11FL. OZ (325ML).
