No bones about it — we live in a crazy dry place.

You can practically feel your skin turning to beef jerky.

Toting lotion to slather on at every opportunity is the only way to fight the dryness, but it’s not exactly practical. (Raise your hand if you’ve ever had an unfortunate incident inside your favorite purse.) That’s why we love Queen Creek Olive Mill’s olive oil lotion stick. It rubs in well, comes in pleasant scents and, most importantly, poses no threat to the iPhone.

Queen Creek Olive Mill’s lotion sticks cost $7 each and are available at its La Encantada outpost on the lower level, 2905 E. Skyline Drive.
