Hello, everyone! Today, I’m back with an indie body lotion review. I recently ran out of my normal hand/foot cream (I’ve been using just boring old St. Ives for awhile ehh) and decided it was time for a change. Since I’ve started using the Jergens in-shower moisturizer, I don’t go through body lotion as quickly nowadays – I really only use it for my hands and feet. This means I can afford to splurge a bit with fun Etsy body creams, since I’m not burning through them at the speed of light.
I’d had Sweet Clementine Soaps favorited for a few months, mostly because they had a really appealing scent selection and extremely cute packaging. I admit that I’m easily tempted when indie sellers make the effort to get some sort of professional-style packaging – I suppose that it implies that they’re invested in their product and thus more likely to have put in work to perfect the formulas that they’re selling. I know that’s not true across the board, of course – I’ve had excellent products from very DIY sellers and crappy products from seemingly polished shops – but it’s definitely something that plays into my decision-making when shopping on Etsy.
SCS sells themed sets of three mini lotions – and since I was new to the brand, I decided this would be the best way to try them out. I’d get to try the formula fully as well as three different scents, and if I wasn’t impressed, 2oz per type isn’t a huge investment. I selected the “French Patisserie” set, which included 2oz tubs of Crème Brûlée, Pistachio Macaron, and Chocolate Mousse body creams. I also grabbed a lip balm, because you know how I am about my lip balms (fanatical is the answer 😈), but that’s another review for another day!
