Softly Scented Citrus Body Lotion #blackcanyon

Product provided for review.  All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

Maybe we're all doomed to become our parents, because I find myself inadvertently mimicking certain things my mom did when I was growing up!  One of the things I remember is that my mom kept bottles of hand lotion all over the house.  There was some in the bathroom to use after hand-washing, and some on each nightstand, and in the den, and always a nice bottle in the guest room.  Black Canyon Citrus Basil lotion is one I would definitely put in any room in my house, even the guest room!

I'm a fan of aromatherapy, and love to have uplifting scents in my bath and body products.  Citrus is a favorite of mine.  This lotion isn't very strongly scented, though, and the fragrance doesn't last long.  To me, that makes it perfect for guest rooms or baths, office desks, or for occasions where just a little fragrance would be more appropriate than a punch of fragrance.

The lotion itself is white, creamy, and spreads easily.  There is dimethicone in the ingredients, which adds a nice slip to the lotion, and the hemp oil is a very good moisturizer that lasts a long time.

I wish it didn't have parabens in the formula, and I also wish that the label didn't have the price on it, because I think that's a bit tacky.  I do like the green plastic bottle and the nice pump dispenser.

I decided to do a painted green gradient for my nail art today.  I started with a base of OPI Where's My Bikini Top? and then dabbed on layers of darker greens.  Next was OPI Thanks A Windmillion, NOPI Green Up Your Act, SOPI Dark Room, and I added just a touch of Wet 'n Wild Black Creme at the tip.
Black Canyon has many other body lotion scents, and more bath and body products as well as home and craft lines.  For more information or to purchase, you can find Black Canyon on their website, Facebook, and Amazon, where this lotion is currently selling for $10.
