As a tart, I appreciate the sharp, crisp qualities of a grapefruit. So I was quickly drawn to Williams-Sonoma’s deep-moisturizing Pink Grapefruit Hand Balm with essential oils. It’s a water-resistant blend of natural cocoa butter, sunflower seed oil and glycerin.
According to the company’s web site, the balm’s active ingredients are derived from natural sources and contain no parabens, ammonia, chlorine or lauramide DEA. It’s biodegradable and not tested on animals.
I’m often prone to forgo hand lotion if there is any trace of stickiness or slickness after applying. That’s not the case with this balm, which absorbs quickly and feels great. But it’s the clean, tangy fragrance, layered with essences of orange, that hooked me.
The balm is $14.95 for 4 ounces. WS also makes a sugar scrub exfoliator with sweet almond oil, shea butter and vitamin E, $24.95 for 8 ounces.
