Yes, flakes off. I rub lotions on, and it pills right off like lint from a sweater. It's weird.
They started reinventing lotions and creams the past few year, which has been a skin saver, but about 6 years ago I stumbled into a local store called Loova.
It's smells like Heaven in there. It's all handmade and they have samples of the scrubs for you to try! It's a bit amazing.
Customer service is wonderful, too. There's been many times that we would go in there for a specific item in a specific scent, and they wouldn't have it. What do you do then? I know one particular instance we wanted an oil spray for Pumpkin's eczema and we didn't want a highly scented one. They were out of the "Milk & Honey" scent (which smells like it's named) so she ordered it to be made and sent to our house, for free. And without losing the price savings of buying a certain amount. That's amazing, in my opinion.
I can't get enough of their oil sprays and soaps. They aren't overly perfumed, and they actually soak into my skin. They don't' just sit on top. I use their scrubs a lot too, but it makes the bath super slippery so i'm a little scared to do it when i know the girls will be in there next.
And it's done wonders for Pumpkin's eczema. We're still battling it a little bit, but she's normally ok unless she gets sick. But for a long while we couldn't come near her with lotion because her skin was so raw and opened, it would burn and she would just scream. Until one night, I decided to just sneak in a quick spray of my stuff, and nothing. No screaming, no fighting, no tears. So now when she has a flare up, we scrub her down with the sugar scrubs, and spray her with the oil, and no fights. And she smells good enough to eat.
I can't rave about it enough. Unfortunately for you, this is not a sponsored post, so no freebies. I'm sorry. But they do deliver.
There's 2 locations here in Pittsburgh. The one I go to is in Station Square, and the other is in Castle Shannon. Definately go in and take a look around.
And for those of you not nearby, my favorites are "Kiss Me All Over" and "Raspberry Lemonade". They're both light on, but the lemonade one smells like summer. I love "Full of Oats" and "Milk & Honey" for the girls though.
So if you need any Christmas gift ideas for the lucky lady in the house, or for yourself, check them out. They even have a monthly soap subscription where they send you 3 seasonal scents of the soap by a slice every month. (There's different length of time periods for it so you don't need to be locked in for a whole year.)
I think I've tried a sample of nearly every product in there at some point, so if you want to know about my experience with any certain product, just leave a question in the comments and I'll let you know.
**All photos are taken from their site, since mine are all being used and aren't as pretty in the bathroom. And like I said, this isn't sponsored in any way. I just shaved my legs the other day and I always spray them with the oil mist spray afterwards and thought you all should know about this product, especially for the holidays.
