It is getting chilly here in Chicago! I’ve been wearing my winter coat, had to dig out my gloves, and blast the heat in my car. I shouldn’t complain. We’re just easing into the cooler weather. It’s not yet to the point where I can see my breath when I’m outside or, well, not to gross you out or anything but, it’s not REALLY cold until your snot freezes as soon as you walk out the door.
With the cooler weather comes dry skin. Yuck! My hands are especially vulnerable. My favorite hand moisturizer has been Aveda Hand Relief since I tried it several years ago, but I have found a new favorite: Organic Lotion Sticks by Bubble & Bee.
I love these lotion sticks! There are only a handful of ingredients in every stick and they’re all things I can pronounce, unlike the ingredients in the Aveda moisturizer. Plus, there’s nothing with the word “acid” in the Bubble & Bee Lotion Stick, which I’m going to go ahead and say is a good thing. The lotion goes on smoothly, isn’t greasy, rubs in nicely, and definitely feels like it’s protecting and healing my dry skin. There are a lot of scents to choose from as well as a simple unscented option. I LOVE THIS. The scents are very light, but some people (including me) can be sensitive to scented products sometimes, so it’s nice to have an unscented option.
What else do I love about these lotion sticks? They’re easy to carry! There’s no risk of over-gooping and wasting the product. A little goes a long way. You can use it anywhere that you have dry skin issues. The best thing about Bubble & Bee Lotion Sticks is that they work. I can’t tell you how many lotions I have tried that are greasy, smelly, or simply ineffective.
Bubble & Bee is a great company with great products. I’d like to give an honorable mention to the Bubble & Bee’s Organic Body Butter. It heals dry, itchy skin right away. I think it will be my winter body moisturizer. We here at Turning Veganese also love their Pit Putty which is the only deodorant that doesn’t irritate my skin while actually doing its job.
Soon enough, I’ll be faced with harsh winter conditions. I’m happy that I’ll be armed with my Bubble & Bee Lotion Stick! –Melissa
