Considering the cost, this lotion is a pretty good value. It is cheaper than most other name brand lotions, and it moisturizes and helps just as well as the leading competition. Combining its effectiveness and its low-cost (at a place like Walmart), it is a good value for the money spent on it, and it should not disappoint. Scent The cocoa butter scent is pretty subtle, but some may still consider it too strong for their personal tastes. For me personally, it's not overwhelming, but I've known some that didn't like it as much. Absorption This lotion absorbs into the body pretty easily, but like many lotions, it does leave a little bit of a residue and greasy feeling. That is common with lotions, and it is less with this one than others. But it is still noticeable and uncomfortable. Effectiveness This lotion helps clear up dry skin pretty effectively, although perhaps not quite as quickly as one would typically like.
