Review: Udderly Smooth Lotion

As part of Mosaic Reviews, I had the opportunity to review Udderly Smooth lotions.  We received three different types of products to try out.

1) Hand lotion
2) Body Cream
3) Foot Cream

The hand lotion came in a flip top tube (it makes me think of a toothpaste tube) while the other two came in tubs with screw off lids.  My first opinion of the tubs with the screw off lids was that they wouldn't be as convenient, but this isn't what I found to be true once I actually started using them. Having the lid come off allowing you to access the lotion is handy when you are putting lotion on a larger area than your hands (like when you are putting lotion on your body after a shower)  You are able to more easily control how much lotion you take at one time that way.   They do have pump lids for their screw off lid tubs if you really want a pump, though.

I found the lotion to be very moisturizing and that a little goes a long way.  At first, I thought that it left my hands feeling greasy.  But then I realized it wasn't a greasy feel, just the moisturizing left on my hands.  I could snap my fingers and open door knobs right after applying the lotion, which I wouldn't be able to do if it left an oily residue.  I think it is the lanolin in the lotion that I am feeling as my hands feel similarly to how they felt after I applied lanolin to the wool diaper covers for the kids.

During the winter, my skin always dries out and I am constantly putting on lotion.  There are times that my hands are so dry that they crack.  I then have to end up putting on a bandaid to allow the sore to heal.  This year, I had a crack form on my knuckle.  I was about to put on a bandaid, but delayed since I was getting our picture taken that day.  I kept rubbing Udderly Smooth hand lotion on it instead.  The crack was gone the next day!

I have been using the Shea Butter Foot Cream on Dan's feet.  He has some sort of callous or growth on his big toe that he hasn't been able to get rid of.  I used the foot cream once or twice a day and it seems to have decreased the size of the growth on his toe!


After 2 weeks of using Shea Butter Foot Cream

You can order lotions for yourself here

Body Cream, 12 oz. Jars   $5.75
Shea Butter Foot Cream, 8 oz jar  $6.50
Hand Lotion, 4 oz. Tube  $2.75
Hand Lotion, 2 oz. Tube  $1.75

The website also lists stores where you can buy their products.  In our area, it lists Meijer and Walmart, although I didn't see it in an online search of Meijer.

I've used the lotions for 2 weeks and haven't made much of a dent in the tub!  I think it is a good value for as long as it is lasting.

Udderly Smooth lotions do not contain any dairy or bovine ingredients, nor were tested on animals.




I received these lotions for free in exchange for my honest review.  No other form of compensation was received.  Your results may vary from mine.
