Smells: Wild Berries and Vanilla with some rose and gardenia accents. I love this fruity, floral combination of scents.
Feels: Very thick. It feels heavy and greasy on my skin. It does not have any sticky-ness, which is nice. After using it, I did feel like I needed to really wash my hands before I hit an app on my phone. Tip: I have found that applying baby powder after I use lotion always helps me get rid of any slimy lotion feel.
Recommendation: I slathered this on my arms before bed and it seriously felt like I was giving my skin a luxurious treatment of moisture. Because it is a heavier product, I prefer using it at night. My skin is extremely dry and this product did a great job of giving it hydration, but the greasy feeling left me less than thrilled. I do like the fact that this product is sulfate-free and phthalate-free. I don’t like harsh chemicals in my skincare products.
