After applying this lotion generously to my hands, they seem more prone to cuts and bruises (too soft?). I also hate that SD alcohol is one of the first five ingredients. But I love the natural, light honeysuckle fragrance and, tired of tender hands, I apply it to my hair as a leave-in conditioner and it works fantasticlly. No frizz, softer & shinier hair, and it's not heavy or sticky in the least. Trying to use up the whole tube before it goes bad can be a bit tricky.

I purchased this on sale for less than 5 USD and was pleasantly surprised. This is nicely moisturizing for my normal to dry skin without being greasy. I'm glad that Desert Essence chose to make a lotion without added fragrances or perfumes, but the unmasked scent of the ingredients isn't great -- not terrible, but not great (thankfully, it's not a lingering fragrance). Overall, I'm happy with this product but I probably won't repurchase.
Despite the fact this is fragrance free it still has scent which is not very pleasing. I did get "used" to it after awhile. It is not greasy and does the job if you really do not want fragrance.
I was thrilled to find a more natural body lotion that was fragrance free, since so many are strongly fragranced. Unfortunately, I'm not that impressed with the actual product. I find this lotion thick and nongreasy but more waxy than moisturizing, and it isn't moisturizing enough for the dryness induced by winter cold, especially on my hands. My body lotion search continues.
