Supplies: Silk Naturals Olive Oil Lotion

I was recently sent a few products to try out from the well-known indie makeup company, Silk Naturals! I've got some makeup swatches to show you guys soon, but I want to start off with their Olive Oil Lotion, which I've been trialling for a couple of weeks.
Here's what the website says about the lotion:
I wanted to make a simple hand and body lotion- nothing crazy, or over the top- nothing that required a science lesson- just a good, basic, not terribly expensive, yet natural, and organic cream.  I finally succeeded.  This is nothing fancy- just 7 well chosen, nice ingredients.  It's light, yet nourishing, and I used a really cool emulsifier that actually resists being washed-off more than most- so it's nice if you're washing your hands a lot.  There's also some Oatmeal extract that helps draw moisture from the air- even at low humidity.  If you're not overly concerned about acne it's also nice as a face cream.
I haven't trialed it as a face cream, but I've been keeping my tube at my desk - I am a FIEND for hand lotion so I've got some stashed everywhere - and it's lovely. It's thick, as you can see from the dab on my skin, and lightly oily, but it sinks into your skin really quickly, and does not feel heavy at all. I love that! I don't notice much of a scent. It keeps me moisturized for long periods of time, also - I don't find myself reaching for lotion as much when I use this.
Ingredients listed on the site as well as the back of the bottle, as you can see:

Ingredients:  Certified Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Certified Organic Jojoba oil, Behentrimonium Methosulfate (and) Cetearyl Alcohol (naturally derived from Colza oil), Sorbitol Hydrolyzed Oats, Gluconolactone (and) Sodium Benzoate
A 4oz. bottle runs $11.99, and a 1oz bottle is $2.99.

Have any of you tried any of Silk Naturals products? I have seen a lot of positive reviews, myself! So I'm excited to be able to trial some of the products for you all. If you're interested in looking at the Olive Oil Lotion, it's on this page. Also, they have several other varieties of lotion you can find on this page!
