Antica Farmacista Le Emulsioni Corpo Vellutanti Body Moisturizer

Until now, we associated Antica Farmacista with those fabulous reed diffusers for the home (in fact, they’re credited with bringing the concept to the US). So when we heard that they were translating their signature scents into a line of moisturizers, we practically danced for joy. These lotions come in an adorably retro bottle reminiscent of an old-fashioned apothecary. And in a range of delicious scents, they’ll make your mouth water with every application. They also pass the hydration test: They’re packed with natural moisturizers—like shea butter and sweet almond oil—that enrich the fragrance.

I like the scent and the size is great to put in my purse. The lotion feels a little different than other lotions I use, not sure why...

Super grapefruity
Sampled

The grapefruit scent of this lotion is pretty strong. It's a nice moisturizer and didnt leave me greasy, but I was not a fan of the smell.

Smells wonderful
Sampled

I love the grapefruit fragrance in this-- perfect for summer. I found the scent to be very long lasting and subtle and the lotion absorbed quickly. My skin is not particularly dry and this provided just the right amount of moisture.

Nothing special

This lotion absorbed fast and wasn't greasy, and I do like the grapefruit scent. But there is just no reason to spend $25 on it. It's average lotion at best.

Absorbs well and smells great!
Sampled

I was immediately surprised at how well it absorbed and also how quickly! The smell is something I would really enjoy on one of those mornings when I haven't gotten enough sleep but have to wake up early anyway. It is energizing without being annoyingly sweet. After looking at the other scents that are offered, I might really consider buying some when my normal moisturizer runs out.

Lightly scented, which is nice. Not 100% on the grapefruit, but it's not overpowering so it's usable. I like that it's not greasy and doesn't leave any residue. Seems to be good for moisturizing.

Great Lotion
Sampled

Clean, fresh smell and left my skin feeling totally smooth. I think the full size product is a bit expensive, though, with so many other inexpensive alternatives out there.

I loved the smell but it didn't last long on me. It moisturized fine. I would like to sample the other scents.
