I absolutely love this lotion! The scent is great and the softness really lasts on my dry skin. The lotion is thick and creamy. The only thing I wasn't happy with was that the lotion didn't absorb well on the palms of my hands and they felt a little greasy. Other than that, you can't beat this product! Scent It kind of reminds me of men's cologne, but I love it anyway! Absorption I found I had to wipe the palms of my hands because they felt greasy. Effectiveness the protection against dry skin lasts HOURS.
