So while I’m stuck here in gross, cold Cleveland, my parents are off sunning themselves in Aruba. They get three weeks of wonderful and I get three weeks of frozen tundra. It’s been forever since I’ve seen the gorgeous Caribbean waters. So color me jealous. The only good thing about them leaving is that they’ll return with a bottle or two of aloe filled goodness to help soothe my winter-chapped hands.
The folks always bring me back goodies from the island and while it’s no substitute for a vacay of my own, it certainly helps kill the jealousy pangs. Last year, they were cruising the markets when my Dad happened upon a hand and body care line that he thought I and all of you should know about. Yes, he’s a supporter of the blog. Isn’t that cute?
Aruba Aloe Island Remedy Hand Lotion is a little tube of heaven. Seriously phenom. Chock full of 100% Aloe Vera Gel, grown right on the island, the lotion is moisturizing yet quick absorbing. You’re never left with greasy palms, leaving marks on everything you touch. And the scent is to DIE. Its soft fragrance is powdery and slightly botanical from the aloe. They also make an antibacterial version that I keep stashed in my desk to use after handling money.
In addition to the hand cream, Aruba Aloe has a whole line of face, body and hair products, including sun care and burn remedies. The Island Remedy Hand Lotion is 6 oz and retails for $19.95. You can purchase directly from ArubaAloe.com and receive FREE SHIPPING.
The website says that small boutiques & salons in the US carry their products. Has anyone ever tried Aruba Aloe? What did you think?
