WFMW - Love this lotion!

The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector is absolutely the best lotion for fighting the winter-dry hands and feet that comes with our Indiana winters. My feet get so nasty that the little children will point to the white dryness and ask, "What's that?"

Unfortunately I have a real thing about my feet. I don't even like to lotion them, and the thought of a pedicure or using one of those pumice stones makes me nauseous. True confession time - Bryan bought me one of those foot massage things for Mother's Day (following some BAD advice of a coworker who obviously doesn't have feet issues). I used it once, grimacing the whole time. Want it? It's collecting dust in my basement. Come and get it!

Before bed I smear this wonderful Body Shop lotion on my feet and then put on socks. (And as Kristen told us last week, we sleep better with socks on - I'm a believer now!) My feet aren't yucky anymore! Socks don't catch as I'm pulling them on.

This lotion isn't cheap, but it works so much better than anything I've picked up at Wal-Mart. It also smells a little strange, but not in an overpowering way. Bryan says it will make him fail random drug testing, but with the economy, who's paying for that anyway?

  1. Hmmm, now I think I may know too much about your feet! haha! Just teasin'! I have the same problem and dot he same thing...lotion and socks. Great solution. However, I LOVE having pedicures and foot rubs from my honey...that is one thing we have that is different besides of course the fact that I am missing 6 kids! (If you see them, send them home! :)
