Review - Daub and Bauble Lotion (Tarocco Orange and Clove)

Don’t worry, we know how to make a lotion that’s not sticky or greasy. Take an easily absorbed, all-purpose miracle moisturizer enrich with Grapeseed Oil and Avocado Butter, stir in Aloe Vera Gel and Vitamin E. Shake it up real good.

This lotion is quickly becoming one of my favorites. The packaging was what first caught my eye - it comes in an array of gorgeous prints for each scent. Happily, what came inside the packaging lived up to the expectations set by such pretty labels. The scent I chose, Tarocco Orange and Clove, balances the crisp citrus of the orange with the warm spiciness of the clove to produce a scent that's not too strong, but just enough. Tarocco orange is a type of blood orange, which is definitely the fashion scent/flavor that is positioned to dethrone pomegranate as the "trendy flavor." The week I got this lotion, I also enjoyed some blood orange and clove-infused vodka, and a blood orange creme brulee! Keep your eyes open for this scent if you love citrus: it's not as sweet as a regular orange or a tangerine, and not as sharp as a grapefruit.

The other great thing about this lotion is that it really absorbs quickly, but effectively, into your hands. I'm a big devotee of the Body Shop's Body Butter, which is great when your skin is crazy dry, but can be overwhelming if you just need a little moisture pick-me-up. Daub and Bauble takes care of that! You can buy it online at, or use their store locator to find a store near you that carries their line (which also includes hand wash as well as dish detergent).
