I’m going confess a little secret that has plagued me my whole life. I have very dry skin…so much so that my hands and feet will hurt if I don’t keep lotion on them continuously. I have lotions stashed in every nook and cranny of my house. There is one in my purse, one in my car, one by every sink in the house, and cabinets full in my bedroom and bathroom. The first thing I do when I get out of the shower is slather on lotion from head to toe. Right before bed, I repeat the process. So I am always on the hunt for a quality lotion.

Of course, we all know not all lotions are created equally. In my opinion the best ones are those that smell incredible, don’t leave you feeling greasy, stay with you throughout the day, and most importantly leave you with super soft skin. Not too much to ask, if I do say so myself. Sadly, not every lotion lives up to these qualities (and those that don’t get stashed into the deep corners of my cabinet, never to see the light of day again). When I do find a lotion that fits the bill and has all the great qualities I look for, I buy it over and over again. You can imagine my delight when we heart this sent me one of my very favorite brands, Thymes to test.
Thymes is a company I have trusted and loved for their high quality products for many years. It’s one of the big weapons in my arsenal against dry skin. From their packaging to their botanical ingredients and their unique scents, you know you are getting something special from this company. An interesting new fact I discovered on the Thymes website – their chemists are all women. Thymes says this “gives them invaluable insight into what other women look for…making them uniquely able to develop products that meet those needs and desires.” All their scents are their own developed in their lab by these women…this only makes me love this company even more!
Thymes sent the wht review team a variety of their hand lotions in unique signature scents ($14 per bottle) to test. I was the lucky recipient of the Naia Hand Lotion. This is a gorgeous scent with a blend of water lily and cyclamen, with hints of citrus and lychee. This particular scent is light and airy and perfect for summer. Plus, there are so many scents to choose from at Thymes, from Ambersweet Orange to Olive Leaf, there is something for everyone. I found the scent doesn’t overpower, but also doesn’t seem to fade away too quickly. The bottle is very pretty and is perfect for sitting next to a bathroom sink.
Best of all, Thyme Hand Lotion lives up to all the qualities I look for in the perfect lotion! Each scent seems better than the other, the lotion leaves no greasy residue on my skin and the moisture stays locked in all day. The natural and botanical ingredients of all Thymes lotions work to sooth and calm my parched skin and keeps the redness and itchiness away.
