This is the best lotion I have used so far! I used to use Bath & Body Works before this, and I wasn't seeing much of an improvement in moisture. Once I used this, I noticed it absorbed into my skin quickly and left my skin with a smooth, subtle shine! After a month, I ran out, so I had to go back to using Bath & Body works, and it ended up DRYING OUT MY SKIN. I now only trust Shea Moisture. Scent The Coconut and Hibiscus line has a great smell. Very sweet and calming. It's really hard for me to keep from eating it. Absorption It only takes a couple of seconds for this lotion to absorb into your skin! However, once it absorbs, your skin will look a little greasy for a couple minutes before your skin is fully moisturized. Effectiveness When using this product with the Coconut Hibiscus body wash, I realize that I don't have to moisturize my skin as often as I did before using Bath and Body Works. It's very hydrating! It also makes my skin texture a little smoother.
