Greeting to everyone who reads my review!
It’s winter now and a good hand lotion is essential for me. It’s so difficult to look good when your hands are flaking and chapped. And this is exactly how my hands react to frosty weather, even when I wear gloves. That’s why a good and nurturing hand moisturizer is is a must-have for me.
This isn’t the first tube of this EOS Berry Blossom hand lotion for me. And each time I’m absolutely dissatisfied with it. However, once I use one all up, I go and buy another one.
The Evolution Of Smooth won the world over some years ago at high speed. They were popular because of their egg-shaped lip balms, which everybody was using, starting from Hollywood stars and finishing with regular boys and girls. Those balms couldn’t win my heart over, I couldn’t even use that very first and last one up. I just threw it away because it became rotten and smelled really bad.
And despite such a bad luck with the lip balm, I still decided to give a chance to this hand lotion from the brand.
Size - all in all, there are only 44 ml
Price - $2.5
The product promises sound catchy, as always:
eos Berry Blossom hand lotion is the everyday essential for soft, smooth hands. A delightfully nourishing natural hand lotion, with hydrating shea butter, aloe and a refreshing fragrance for beautifully soft, smooth skin.
> 24 hour moisture
> Fast-absorbing & non-greasy

The ingredients list is great, which I’m really happy about:
Water/Eau, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Stearic Acid, Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Fragrance/Parfum, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Cocoglycerides, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Dimethicone, Hydrogenated Didecene, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Punica Granatum Extract, Tocopherol, Citric Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Carbomer, Sodium Hydroxide, Disodium EDTA, Capryly Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, BHT, Benzyl Salicylate, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene, Linalool, Geraniol
The lotion is packed with a plastic tube, which looks like a sea pebble. It has a flip-top cap. It’s very compact and is a perfect throw-in-a-bag option.
The consistency is a lightweight cream of a yellowing color.
It is nice to distribute and it sinks in so quickly, leaving no oily residue behind.
The aroma isn’t chasing, pretty pleasant and floral.
And it might seem as though there are only good aspects about it, like handy packaging, no oily film, nice ingredients, yet still, there’s something that I don’t like about it?
And the answer is very easy: they promise us 24-hour moisture. In fact, this is 2-3-hour moisture in summer, though. In winter I can apply it to my hands every 10-15 minutes because my skin literally soaks it in and demands more.
Hence the spending is huge and such a tube goes no longer than a week and a half. And then, the price seems far from being affordable.
And now, I’m sure that everyone wants to know if this lotion is like a hole in the head for me, why do I keep on buying it over and over again?
And the answer is banal - this handy tube is small and I like carrying it with me in my coat pocket. I sometimes forget my gloves at home and here this lotion helps me out. Emergency help, so to say, unless I get to a warm place with good nurturing hand creams with oils.
But, there’s no prolonged effect. If you use this product, your hands are moisturized. Once you wash it with a soap, goodbye moisture.
Is this product worth your attention and purchasing? Yes and no at the same time. On the one hand, if your skin isn’t too dry and you need immediate moisture, then it’s a good idea to buy this lotion, especially if you find it for an adequate price (less than $3). At least it won’t bring any harm to your hands.
But if you need serious moisture and nurture for 10 hours minimum, then pass by this product. And you’d better toss it when you see it priced with more than $3. There are many other less pricey hand moisturizers which are more effective.
Thanks for your attention and see you in my new reviews!
