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.
The smell of this lotion is pretty dazzling - it's a very true, bright grapefruit smell and isn't sweet or sugary at all. The lotion itself is only mediocre, and in fact, I agree with the reviewer who says it reminds her of hotel lotion. It's only okay, and I think that it's stinging my arms. Be careful sensitive skin people. I don't have particularly sensitive skin and my arms feel hot after application.2
I loved this sample. I thought the packaging made it look like a bad hotel sample - however, I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality. I love the smell and the product itself was very moisturizing.4
I really like the grapefruit scent of this lotion, and I also like how it makes my skin feel, and how quickly it absorbs, leaving no residue. I have a lot of lotion right now, but I would consider buying this in the future.4
This lotion was nice, didn't leave me feeling greasy or slick. The shea butter in it gives a nice scent and keeps my skin so soft! Would definitely purchase again!4
SMELLS AMAZING. I want everything and everyone to smell like this, all the time5
This lotion smells amazing!!!! I used a small bit to sample it at first and it smelled amazing and made my hands feel so soft! I would totally recommend this product and would love to try the other scents.5
I am totally into grapefruit right now and the fragrance definitely lingers. It does not leave your skin greasy, but I also find it is not the most hydrating cream.4
This is a nice product and a decent sample size. A pleasant smell but nothing that really put me over the top to purchase it. Also it being a bit on the high price side for lotion.3
Nice subtle sent. If you need a light moisturizer than this would be good. But If you have dry skin, this probably will not do the trick.3
loved the smell. great for travel or a purse. wasnt crazy about it but to be honest im really picky about lotions and the way they feel on my skin. this was ok feeling afterwards4
