I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review another product from Tropical Traditions! When deciding what product would be best to review I only had to look at my dry and cracked skin on my hands. My hands are always dry as the weather gets colder and now combined with the constant washing of bottles, they are in desperate need of some deep moisturizing. Tropical Traditions graciously sent me their Moisturizing Cream in Lavender scent. This cream is made with 100% natural ingredients including virgin coconut oil and virgin palm oil.
I have used many lotions over the years with varying success but have not tried a moisturizing cream until now. First, let me say the lavender scent is simply lovely. It’s distinct but not overpowering, like the scent of the small breeze blowing through a field filled with lavender flowers. Love it! Might not be the best choice for men, but it’s definitely a lovely feminine scent. Tropical Traditions describes their cream as ” especially useful for very dry skin. Highly concentrated, they work well for overnight use, and are great for massaging into the skin.” My hands definitely qualify for the “very dry skin” and I have applied several times for overnight use. I did find it to be rather oily at first application, however, the label tells the user to allow time for cream to absorb into your skin. I find that once I apply the cream I need to just not touch anything for at least 5 minutes. Perhaps I just need to learn more tricks for laundry but I am forever getting oil stains on my clothing. I’d like to get a pair of cotton gloves to wear after applying the cream to get a deep moisturizing during the night.
Overall, if you are looking for deeply moisturizing cream that smells just lovely, I recommend Tropical Traditions Moisturizing Creams!
