For The Love Of Sheep

Last fall, I reviewed Love+Leche lotion bars (click here if you missed it). I'm the first to admit that I'm a bit of a product junkie, and I particularly am always on the hunt for ways to keep my hands moisturized. Working with wool sucks a lot of moisture out of your skin, and I have also been traveling a lot more for work in the past year, so a really good lotion bar can come in quite handy since it's TSA friendly for your carry-on.

There's a lot to like about Love+Leche lotion bars, but first and foremost is that they work. They really do melt into your skin and are easy to use - I've tried a few other lotion bars that simply wouldn't melt into my skin as promised, and it was frustrating to say the least. My hands feel moisturized and supple, but not sticky or greasy. After a brief moment, I can pick up my project without fear of getting my yarns and needles gunked up with product.

I also love that the products are natural & handmade (more on that here); they are scented with essential oils and every single bar I've sniffed smells fantastic. This time, I chose the Lavender Rosemary and I'm quite pleased with the woodsy, herbal scent. However, the new sheepy shape they've introduced is really the star of today's review!

This new design took over a year to come to fruition: the folks at Love+Leche worked with a local Santa Fe sculptor who designed the mold was designed from a touching photo of two sheep that was turned into a sketch and then finally carved out of clay.

I honestly didn't think they could top the sleeping cats shape, but clearly I was wrong. It's so cute, I almost don't want to use it because then my little sheep friends would slowly fade away. Perhaps that is the one con, but I'll let you in on a little secret: you can preserve the shape of the sheep by grasping the sides and rubbing the bottom of the lotion bar over your hands (or whatever you want to moisturize), depositing plenty of moisture wherever you need it while still leaving top of the lotion bar intact. You're welcome!
