Are there any good reasons for using hand and body lotions? Of course there are! Most of us already know that hand and body lotions help to moisturize the skin and keep it supple. In fact, skin lotions generally moisturize the outer layer of skin known as the epidermis. Since the primary job of the epidermis is to protect our bodies, it is important to keep it in excellent shape. The skin, after all, is the largest organ that the human body has.
When we use hand and body lotion, we protect our skin from drying out. In fact, the best time to put hand and body lotion on is when we are fresh out of the shower or bath. Our skin is clean, so we don’t need to worry about trapping in any dirt or grime. Plus, if we put our skin lotion on before we towel dry, we can trap in moisture so that our skin stays nice and supple.
Herban Renewal has created an entire line of wonderful hand and body lotions that are manufactured from earth-friendly ingredients. In fact, all of their products are made by physically and mentally challenged adults from Disabilities Resources, Inc. in Abilene, Texas. The company, Herban Renewal, relies on its social consciousness to help make this world a better place. If for that reason only, you should consider a visit to the Herban Renewal website to browse their products for a few skin care items.
They offer two lines of hand and body lotions: the Herban Renewal lotions and the Arcelia lotions. These all-natural products smell so fresh that you’ll be imagining fresh fruits, vegetables, and flowers right near you. The lotions are light in body and creamy in texture, making them perfect to use any time of the day or night. Plus, they don’t leave any greasy residue or stains.
The Herban Renewal line is intended for women of all ages. It is the flagship line, and as such, it offers the gentlest of fragrances and the crispest of scents. You can purchase this one in Garden Mint, First Rose, Love, and Lavender. While I do like all of the scents with the exception of mint (sorry, but I am just not a minty person), my all-time favorite is the First Rose because it offers a spring-like floral aroma.
The Arcelia lotions are designed with the chic woman in mind. It’s a lively line that is sassy and sexy in fragrance. Just like all of their other Arcelia products, the lotion is featured in three cool fragrances: String Bikini, Calming Cucumber, and Mango Ole. The Calming Cucumber is my favorite at the moment, but that might have something to do with having two children in college and the need to remain calm despite all the stories circulating these days of armed intruders (yes, I did get a phone call about that one) and muggings on campus (this one came in an email.)
Both lines of hand and body lotions are sold in four sizes: 1 ounce, 2 ounces, 8 ounces, and 16 ounces. Prices currently range an affordable $1.00 to $16.00. The smaller sizes offer screw-on caps while the larger ones have a push top.
I received all of these lotions free (quite a generous gift) for the purposes of reviewing them for this Web site. I do like them and think that you will too if you decide to try them. Perhaps, you’ll even like the Garden Mint, which offers the crispest scent of all!
