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 received the grapefruit scent. There's a hint of what smells kind of like bug spray underneath the citrus note. It does dissipate a little when you put it on. I do like the way my skin feels, but I would not have chosen to purchase this particular lotion based on scent alone.

absorbs quickly, smells fresh!

It has a very nice light fresh Grapefruit scent and absorbs quickly but is not something i would use on a daily basis because it is so lightly scented. I prefer much more heavily scented lotions. I like the scent to last a while.

I sampled this lotion in the grapefruit scent. It had a really nice scent. It absorbed quickly and was non greasy. A good lotion for the summer when your skin isn't excessively dry. I will use the sample but not repurchase. $25 is a little expensive I think for this lotion.

I am not thrilled about receiving another body lotion. I feel that there were better options for me as far as what I see for the June choices. Very disappointed with this box..

Extremely cute packaging...

Even though it slightly resembles what you would find in a hotel bathroom, the bottle makes the body lotion what it is. The scent I received, grapefruit, does not smell like grapefruit to me at all. The lotion itself is very smooth and goes on nicely, but the scent is the major downfall to this lotion in my eyes.

Fast-absorbing lotion
Sampled

The texture of the lotion is great. It is not greasy, it absorbs rather quickly and made my skin very soft after application. However, I wasn't a fan of the 'grapefruit' smell. It is true to the scent, but very strong for me. I might try the other scents. If you love grapefruit/fruity smell, you might enjoy this.

Awesome!

This cream was great and the grapefruit scent was pleasing without being overpowering. I used it right after spending a day outside and it left my skin feeling soft and smelling great despite a lot of sun!

Smells nice, but seems a little overpriced. You can definitely get similar products elsewhere.

Typical lotion
Sampled

I loved the smell of this lotion and it was a great sample size but it wasn't anything special with regards to hydrating my skin.
For the price, I would look elsewhere.
