It's rare that lotion impresses me, and generally I'm very happy to stick with the basics: good oils, plain cocoa butter, etc. But I'm obsessed with this Farmhouse Fresh Hello! Yellow Shea Butter Cream ($30). It's an unassuming little glass jar that looks like it should hold preserves, but what's inside is actually a riot of amazing smells (and hydration). It smells so good that it even makes sweating seem pretty okay, since it's light enough to be charming instead of overbearingly fragrant as it melts.
This stuff is like a little kid's dream dessert somehow translated into a personal care product: it smells like Italian cream cake topped with lemon bar chunks along with a healthy helping of vanilla ice cream on the side. If you hate gourmand scents, you'll probably be utterly repelled, but if you love them, there's no turning back. In fact, if reading this is making your salivary glands tingle, maybe you shouldn't even try Hello! Yellow. There's no way you'll be able to sniff it without becoming addicted, and then, like me, you'll be on the hook for a $30 jar of shea butter, grinning like a fool while you pay.
