Here in the test kitchen, food isn’t the only thing on our minds. Also important: lotion. We wash our hands so often that our skin becomes parched, itchy, dry, and red. Many of the lotions we’ve tried offer little protection or are so intense we feel like we’re wearing lotion mittens. While we have found a few shea butter products that are affordable and do the job, I’m currently crushing on Fresh’s Sugar Blossom Hand Treatment. Yes, it costs a lot more than I would spend on that drugstore vat of shea butter, but it’s got an addictive citrus scent, and it makes my skin feel great. Fifteen dollars is a small price to pay for the daily abuse my hands put up with.
