In general I don't really like Suave Professionals products. They have never seemed to work like they claim, but this lotion is different. I received a sample in a package I ordered from 6pm.com and then received a second sample in the mail from Pinch Me. I used one up and keep the second in my purse. I bought a full size bottle as soon as the first sample ran out. I just love this lotion so much. I can't imagine being without it ever again. Scent I've never noticed a scent, but I like that. Too many scented products just leave you smelling like a mixed up mess. This is perfect. Effectiveness This may be the best lotion I have ever used, and I've tried a lot of them. It leaves my skin so soft and the feeling lasts all day long.
