Products really lush, order received with no problems at all, will use again.
First of all, can we all just take a moment to celebrate with all the (eco-friendly) confetti and tasty desserts over how FREAKING INCREDIBLE The Old Man and The Shea smells? Seriously, it makes my Earl Grey loving heart sing. I'd lick myself, I smell so good, if it wouldn't be considered crazy of me to be randomly licking myself.
The lotion bar itself is divine. It takes a little bit to warm up but that's a lovely reminder to sit still and breathe while I wait the 10 or so seconds for it to melt enough to rub in. The scent becomes softer upon application but it lingers for hours. My skin feels smoother and hydrated all day without that icky feeling I get when I bathe or sweat while wearing regular lotion - all slimy and sticky. Plus, this bar form ensures that I put on the right amount, not too much or too little.
I will be hoarding these (and using them all the dang time!) in the future. You have been warned, Vy.
