Hit or Hype : Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day

I was selected to receive these products for review, so I was excited to try products that were paraben-free,  had plant-based ingredients and weren’t tested on animals.

The Basil scent was “intense” in the hand lotion and I wasn’t sure if I’d use it at all. The hand soap was assigned kitchen duty since I’m often washing my hands for meal prep; the lotion lives on my desk to keep my hands soft during these cold NE winters. I find my hands are excessively dry and the moisture lasts a while without having to constantly reapply.

I really love how well the hand soap cleanses without stripping the natural oils in my skin and the lotion adds moisture without leaving a greasy, tacky feel.  The hand soap retails for $3.99 and the lotion for $4.99 per the Mrs. Meyer’s website.  You can also purchase the Hand Care Basic set for $7.99 which saves you a couple of dollars of buying them individually.  There are also foaming hand soaps which is my favorite method of hand soap because it dispenses an exact amount which reduces waste.  I have spotted them in our Whole Foods and am looking forward to trying some of the other home care products.

. . . until next time



I love when I get to try new products (before they are available in stores) and share my honest thoughts about them.  #Smiley360 offered this full size product to try free and I jumped at the opportunity.  (Disclaimer: I am being compensated to write this review)

Northeast winters can be brutal – the cold air seems to “suck” all the moisture out of my skin (especially my hands) so I had high hopes for this product to not only moisturize my hands but also protect them.

O’Keeffee’s Working Hands Hand Cream kept my hands moisturized even after washing my hands. I liked it so much I shared it with my husband who was impressed at how “soft” his hands felt.  That says a lot ! !

This hand cream is thick but not greasy and “melts” into the skin to form a moisture “barrier” to keep the skin soft and smooth.

This product is great if you suffer from very dry hands or frequently have your hands in water and need intense moisture that lotions just can’t give.
