Oh my good-good-ness

t is not very often that I have the opportunity to rave about something so surprisingly wonderful...but here I go.

Miss Darcy had a cool contest a bit ago for a sampler of some hand lotion. I left a comment, and, to be honest, forgot about it. Well Darcy contacted me and let me know that I was one of the winners. Woo Hoo!
Today I got my little prize package in the mail. I opened up the sample called Hippie Chick. I knew from reading the description that it was patchouli-like. I put a small dollop of the creamy white lotion on my hands and began to have the most wonderful scent drift seductively through my nose. It is sexy, warm and clean without being cloying or overpowering. The lotion absorbs beautifully and leaves your skin feeling .....(sniff, sniff) refreshed and soft. No greasiness what-so-ever. (sniff) I'm surprised I can even type this post. See....

I have to keep stopping to smell myself. How crazy is that! And I have a strange chemical make up. Certain scents go all sorts of wrong on me. Take something like Calvin Klein's One fragrance, for instance, it smells like decomposing watermelon on me. Or Elizabeth Arden's Red Door, decomposing watermelon. Ah yes and let's not forget the wonderful reaction you get when I wear something like Giorgio. Yup you guessed it...decomposing watermelon. So when I find a scent that does not do that I'm thrilled. (snifffff) And you might ask what is this amazing hand lotion that I can't seem to stop singing the praises of called ...... Happy Hands Lotion. And mine are. If you haven't heard of or tried her lotion before, please go over and check them out. You can purchase sample packs to try out. Which I think is a great idea. And if you have tried them before then you know exactly what I mean about the feel and smell of this lotion.

Now I am going to play devils advocate here. Am I saying this is the best lotion I have ever tried? No. Because I haven't tried all the lotions that I probably will in my life. But I am saying that I am highly impressed and very pleased about how this lotion feels and smells. So much so that I am going to go over to Los Gringos and purchase some right now.

Please go and check out her store and really think about buying at least the Autumn Treat sampler. It's a great price and I think you will be really quiet "happy" with the results. (sniff..sniff...snifffffff...grin)
