Rated 5 out of 5 by dreamweaver 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 Catskillguy 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 TraceyF 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 Sirene 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 mgNYC 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.

Neither too light nor too heavy, and only needs to be applied once per day. Gluten-free too!

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mickey The scent has changed!!!! :(
I have been purchasing this Sweet Almond lotion for a couple years now. Every bottle has consistently smelled wonderful...almondy and yummy. I just purchased another bottle, and it has NO scent...all I can smell is alcohol. I'm so disappointed! Please bring back this product as it used to be!

This is my favorite lotion! The smell is heavenly; almond. It relaxes as well as makes your hands feel incredible. The moisture lasts for hours. This actually has helped my age spots less noticeable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OrganicChick Deeply moisturizing, non-greasy, & smells yummy!
I bought this last week and am impressed so far. I always look for lotions that do NOT have water listed as the first ingredient (those usually don't keep skin moisturized for very long). This lotion has aloe vera juice as the first ingredient, almond extract as the second, and shea butter as the third. WINNER! This lotion makes my skin soft and smooth without being greasy. No parabens, artificial scents, or harsh chemicals. And it smells delicious too. Will be buying again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by foreever young Nothing wow, but ok.
Reading other reviewers mostly positive comments here, I bought this hand & body lotion along with Apple & Ginger Shampoo a week ago hoping to finally have found products that actually work for me, but so far I’m very disappointed with my purchase. While the Sweet Almond Hand & Body lotion is nothing wow but ok as a lotion, the smell is terrible!!! I don’t understand how people have liked the smell of this lotion. It’s not sweet almond at all! It smells mediciney, and I still couldn’t get used to it. Fortunately, it doesn’t hold much. After I finish this tube, I’m going to try Pumpkin Spice Hand Repair Cream. I hope it makes me happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tsimon2248 Very Sweet Smelling
Everything was wonderful about the product. Very good moisturizer, and it did not leave me feeling greasy. But the smell was so sweet that if I applied all over it became a little sicky-sweet. But other than that, if you want a lotion that smells exactly like almond, this is it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DD Best lotion ever!
I'm a lotion addict, and I'm super duper picky about my lotion. I can't stand when it's greasy, too smelly, or leaves my hands still feeling chapped. This lotion does none of that!

I absolutely love this lotion! I'd be heartbroken if it were no longer available. It's thick without being greasy. It relieves dry, chapped skin quickly and is long lasting. And, the fragrance is delicious. Not only do you get the benefit of a moisturizer, but also a wonderful, sweet smelling perfume. It really does double duty. Love, love, love this lotion.
