Lotion is a must for me but in the winter, but I detest putting it on because it is so very cold. I like to put it on prior to bedtime because it has time to sink in and moisturize my skin. My neighbor gave me one of these lotion dispensers for my birthday approximately seven years ago. She gave it to me in the heat of summer so I wasn't able to try it out for several months. This is one of the best birthday gifts I have ever received!! I filled it up with my favorite lotion and turned it on. Within a few minutes, the lotion was warm and ready for use. I was amazed at the difference a few minutes of warming could bring. The warm lotion is also very soothing to dry, winter skin. This is one of those gifts that will keep on giving. Conair is a great product and their products last forever it seems. I highly recommend this appliance as a great alternative to having to steel yourself to rubbing on cold lotion.
