Every once in a while a product comes along that just has everything – you know, like a guy who seems to good to be true because he’s funny, great looking, has a terrific job, and is so sweet to his mom. It almost makes you afraid that the bubble is going to burst and he’s going to have some fatal flaw like he hates cats, or he never puts the toilet seat down, or his favorite party trick is belching the ABC’s. I kept waiting for the bubble to burst on my perfect hand lotion, The Jojoba Company Lemon and Coconut Hand Cream ($22.95), but happily this bubble shows no signs of popping.
The Jojoba Company is Australian, and their products come from their own farms in sunny New South Wales. The packaging of the Lemon & Coconut Hand Cream is truly beautiful. I am the type who throws the outer carton away…I test way too many products to also have the boxes lying around. But I can’t bring myself to throw this one out, with the gorgeous origami-style flower on the top. It’s just so pretty!! And I love the substantial but lightweight pink tube.
The lemon and coconut scent is fantastic. It’s definitely tropical and dreamy, but it’s also light so it isn’t overwhelming. The lotion is also lightweight, non-greasy, and super hydrating with lots of vitamin E and 100% jojoba grown on The Jojoba Company farm. Other great ingredients include hydrating vitamins A and D, softening coconut oil, hydrating shea butter, and the great antioxidant pomegranate. It has no harmful detergents, chemicals, or parabens, and no artificial fragrances or colors.
What makes this hand cream truly unique is that the sustainable sourced jojoba is full of wax esters that are molecularly comparable to ones in young and healthy skin. This means that skin actually recognizes the wax esters and allows them to deliver the wonderful hydration even more deeply than typical hand creams.
The Jojoba Company Lemon & Coconut Hand Cream really is the perfect boyfriend of hand creams. Check it out online in the states at www.thejojobacompany.com or in Australia at www.thejojobacompany.com.au. – Lisa
