I’m not a big lotion user. Maybe because the main thing I drink is water, so I am fairly hydrated daily. Or maybe because I live in subtropical central Florida, where the humidity is often 90%. But when December sneaks around, I usually need a good lotion for a couple of months.
My friend Lynn started selling Perfectly Posh beauty products earlier this fall. I had never heard of the company. They work with local reps and home parties, like Avon or Mary Kay. Perfectly Posh products are naturally based and never have petroleum-derived ingredients including SLS, parabens or paraffins. Plus they use no gluten ingredients, no soy fillers and no lanolin. That is why I feel good about recommending their hand creme to you – without being asked.
First I tried a sample of their Big Fat Yummy Hand Créme in Hottie Patottie scent. It’s described as “loaded with vitamins A and E to easily penetrate the driest skin without feeling greasy” and it features apricot kernel oil – not petroleum. This creamy and nourishing, non greasy hand creme has a fabulous fragrance that I found sexy and wanted a perfume of! The scent is supposedly brown sugar vanilla, but it was muskier than that to me. Although I originally applied it for my cuticles, I ended up dabbing it on my neck and wrists so I could smell the scent rising up throughout the day.
This scent is also available in a solid lotion bar,which provides deep-healing moisture with shea butter, and creates a soft, protective barrier with gentle beeswax. It would be a great gift for doctor or nurse friends who wash their hands a lot, because it is recommended for skin that is over-washed, dry, cracking, or in extreme circumstances. It comes in a pretty, little, round tin.
Just today I tried Big Fat Yummy Hand Créme in Lil Snarky. That scent is described as “exotic flowers & sandalwood with a serious attitude.” I did not smell attitude, but it did seem to have citrus undertones to me. I later learned it has extracts from mandarin and bergamot orange fruits. After putting it on I realized I hadn’t washed my face yet, and I was kicking myself for “wasting” my hand lotion since I would have to reapply after my face routine. As it turned out, though, I didn’t reapply the lotion for HOURS. I had it on before 9am and reapplied around 7:40pm! My cuticles look great despite how dry they felt the last two days!
The key ingredients of the hand cremes are coconut oil, glycerin and apricot kernel oil. They will leave your hands looking and feeling pampered!
There are other Perfectly Posh products I am interested in trying! The Tea tree and neem hair mask moisturizes hair and scalp. I’ll probably need that after my winter trip to St. Louis. The Argan Oil Anti Frizz Smoothing Hair Serum would be a great protectant when flat ironing or to tame my curls.
This company is less than a year and a half old. I’m curious to see when they have a big boom. If you think your friends would be interested in learning more about Posh products from you, it is $99 to become a rep with 30 days of training – or Lynn hosts online parties with Facebook groups so people can check out products on their own time online.
Dec 16 is the last day to order in time for Christmas. If you want to learn more about their products a little at a time like I did, you can join the Facebook page and get updates about random items from Lynn. Then you can take advantage of her specials too!
And if you need a new hand creme that is naturally based and lasts for hours, try Perfectly Posh!
