A few weeks ago, my friends over at Shuttle Lotion sent me several bottles of their Grenald’s Shuttle Lotion for the Skin for my swag bags at my TCC Luncheon. I also advised that I would review the product for the blog as well as get reviews from my guests who used the product.
Shuttle Lotion is medicated and in my opinion, not a Bath & Body Works type of moisturizer. It has a medicated smell, and if you can get past that, it is a great product. My son has eczema and he tends to use Eucerin lotion as prescribed by the doctor,but I gave him two bottles of the Shuttle Lotion and he loved it. He said it was easier to use than Eucerin because it wasn’t as thick, and the easy pour bottle made it something that he would use over his previous product.
I also used the product, and found that it was thick, but still easy to use and rub on the body, I found this lotion was best used right after the shower or bath. Again, it does have a strong medicated smell, so after using, you may want to use a body spray of some sort. The smell does fade away after a few moments.
All-in-all, I will be using this product in the future, and would recommend it to people with extremely dry skin or eczema sufferers.
Reviews from my guests were mixed. Two people said they would not use it because of its thickness. The others said they would use it during the winter only because of the dryness. One highly recommended it and wanted information on how they could order their own supply.
According to their site, Shuttle Lotion can be used on minor burns, heat rash, and itchiness. It can also be used as an antiseptic and is soothing and gentle.
I give Shuttle Lotion the thumbs up! To visit them, or to learn more about their product, click HERE. You can also follow them on Twitter- @shuttlelotion.

I started using this lotion in 1971. I am now 69 years old. My friend in high school came back from Florida and we were living ohio, and as kids we were always dealing with pimples and sunburn. My friends mom brought some back and tried it and loved it. Then I went in the navy and was on an aircraft carrier and I got the companies address and told them how much I loved their product and put 20.00 in an envelope and asked if they still had it and could they send me some. I go t a nice letter and more than my monies worth . Best product ever!!! Tim in Iowa.
