Meh...
Sampled

I wasn't very excited about this product from the get-go. It looks, and smells, just like those sample lotions you get in a hotel room. A good word to describe this product is "meh."

My favorite product in my box this month!

This body lotion is fantastic! I threw this little trial size in my purse after I got my box this month, and reached for it several times while braving these subzero Midwest temps. I absolutely LOVED it. Light scent, lightweight and fast-absorbing, my hands feel and look moisturized and a little goes a LONG way. My boyfriend even used it and was happy with the scent and result.

I might not wait to accumulate more points and buy the full-size for $16- a steal for how great this was. Enjoy!

Smells great but isn't as moisturizing.
Sampled

When I first sampled this product, I thought I was in LOVE. It smelled amazing - earthy yet clean and refreshing. Not oily or greasy either. Turns out it was just lust. I bought a full size and I realized it wasn't giving me the moisture I needed after prolonged use. I still love the smell and how it dries so I use it occasionally.

how is this stuff spa grade
Sampled

I don't understand the hefty price tag for a moisturizer that, well, doesn't moisturize. there is so much alcohol added to this product that instead of moisturizing it left my skin very dry. It doesn't even have a pleasant scent.I have used cheap drugstore moisturizer that has worked way better than this.the only reason it got 1 star is because you can't write a review without giving it 1.

Not great

This smells & feels just like the lotion you get at a hotel. It's a generic soap like smell. The lotion seems to moisturize ok at first, but it's gone pretty quick. Not my fave.

Reminded me of cheap hotel mini lotions
Sampled

This lotion did not seem very luxurious when I used it, and instead reminded me of the cheap little lotion bottles you get for free in your hotel bathroom. It probably was the scent that reminded me of such. I was very disappointed in this lotion, for I do not this the price is appropriate for what you get.

Ok

The smell is good but it can sometimes be overbearing, especially because my body is really dry and so I have to put on lots of this creme for it to make a difference.

This product is a little heavy for my skin type. I broke out from it.

I love it! It smells great, my brother walked into the room when I was using it and he really liked the smell too .It absorbs well without being sticky or needing lots of time to dry.
