Avalon Organics Hand and Body Lotion

image from

Price: $11.45 (though you can often find it cheaper) for 12 fl oz (350 ml)

What they say:
"Product description: A triple dose of rich lipid sources -- certified organic sunflower, flaxseed and coconut oils -- restores the skin's lipid balance for long-lasting, easily absorbed moisturization and silky, supple skin.

Features and benefits: Formulated with our special Triple Lipid System and beta glucan for fresh, healthy skin, our certified organic herbal blend of organic peppermint oil and moisturizing glycerin leaves skin soft and refreshed."

What I say:
This is a really good product, and I could not easily live without it.  This is one of the few products that I have found that I can use on my eczema that doesn't cause it to act up.  It isn't the most moisturizing, or the cheapest, but I think it's great (great enough that I have gone through several bottles of this stuff).

The smell of the one I get is real peppermint, and dissipates quickly enough that it shouldn't give people a headache.  The consistancy is pretty standard: not really runny, not really that thick.  I would say it's a little more on the thick side, but not by much.  I have not noticed a buildup of product on my clothes from using this (for.. years now, I think), nor have I noticed my skin getting used to this, and needing more moisture.

So, yeah, I love this stuff.  You can find Try Mes at Whole Foods, and perhaps other places, though I haven't seen many places that have this in person. does carry it (for a decent price, as well), and you can also get it from

HG 5/5
