I am a sucker for a good smelling lotion. I am by no means brand loyal, and if you were to look in my bathroom you’d see more lotions than I’d care to admit. Sometimes I look at it and just have to laugh thinking there is NO WAY one human could use that much lotion. The best part is that lotion has a pretty long shelf life. I don’t think of lotions expiring too quickly, so I don’t mind stocking up. Plus, when we have guests stay over, it’s always nice to have a few lotions for people to choose from (usually Aveeno Daily Moisture for the men & some smelly good options for the women).
One brand I REALLY love, is Crabtree & Evelyn. Most people know this brand from their hand creams (all of which are amazing, but I love the Gardeners & Avocado scents best), but their body lotions are pretty incredible, too. AND, I’m lucky enough to live 15 minutes from their outlet store!
When my in-laws came to town this past week, we had to make a stop to the outlet mall to return a baby outfit at Carter’s. Of course, we also had to make a pit stop into Crabtree & Evelyn. My mother-in-law loves their lotion just as much as I do, and needed to stock up. Both of us LOVE the Sweet Almond Oil lotion. I promise, this is the perfect, lightweight scent. It’s a great gift for mom, your friend, or yourself, too!
And like any good outlet store, there was a great deal going on: Buy 2, Get 1 Free (same sale online, too!!) , which was just too good to pass up. Thankfully, my mother-in-law wanted to treat me to a lotion of my choice. I thought this was a great chance to try something new: Savannah Gardens. Savannah is one of my favorite cities in the US, so I wasn’t surprised by how great this smells. I’m thinking about taking this to the hospital to pamper myself after having the baby. I know I’m supposed to limit how much “scented” product I wear, so I’ll probably just keep it to my legs, but nothing will make me feel more like myself than a little pampering!
