Sweet Almond Hand and Body Lotion is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesomeness in a Bottle I have many allergies and am also sensitive to smells. This lotion does not bother me in the least and is effective for both hands and body. I love Desert Essence products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the scent, don't like sticky This lotion smells fantastic and does leave your skin feeling nicely moisturized. The only thing I don't like - and this is an issue with many of the healthy lotions - is the sticky feeling after putting it on. Other than that, it's a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good stuff, strong marzipan scent Seems like an effective moisturizer, good value considering size of the tube. I ordered a second tube, which is constitutes a high recommendation. One funny thing: the lotion has a very strong scent of marzipan! Might be dangerous if you have a sweet tooth...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't Compare to H20 Lotion Was hoping this would be a good replacement for H20's Almond Body Lotion. It absorbed really well into the skin and had a fresh scent. The Desert Essence has more of a vanilla scent to me and I don't care for vanilla scented lotions. The H20 was discontinued. This doesn't compare at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad for the price There was once a very good sweet almond hand cream made in Milano, Italy that I really liked. I hoped this one would be as good as that Italian one but was a little disappointed. However, this cream is not bad at all for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich, creamy and effective This is a very rich cream without toxic chemicals. It also doesn't irritate sensitive skin or cause breakouts. It is very moisturizing and works well for all day or as an overnight cream. I think it smells wonderful, but it also doesn't linger and is not overpowering. It does take some time to absorb. This is the best I have found for a reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Body Lotion Neither too light nor too heavy, and only needs to be applied once per day. Gluten-free too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxury! This is such a wonderful smelling lotion. It has such an expensive aura about it. I loved it so much I have just purchased another bottle. This is such a great lotion for a really low price.
