Over all, I really enjoy this lotion. I'd almost go so far as to call it a body butter, as the consistency is quite thick, almost whipped.
I find it absorbs into my skin quickly without leaving a greasy film behind, and it does a great job keeping my skin hydrated.
The scent is wonderful. I'm not usually one for light fragrances, but this one is so fresh and clean and I can't get enough.
The only problem is the packaging. A product this thick lends itself better to a squeeze tube or a tub, but not an upright bottle with a flip cap. The hole through which the product is dispensed is just too small, and you have to use a considerable amount of force to get the product out.
The price is okay. I paid $9 at Target for a 13oz bottle, which is less than some other natural brands, but still a tad expensive for my tastes. But it works well enough and smells so good that I would definitely repurchase.

I really like this lotion although I'm not sure why it's called a lotion as it has much more of a cream consistency, kind of like a thick souffle. I love how well this moisturizes my skin and the fresh scent it imparts on my skin. A con would be that it doesn't sink right away into the skin but rather sits on top of the skin for a while before sinking in so I can't put it on throughout the day- I have to use it at night and by morning it would have sunk in and leaving my extremely dry skin quite smooth and soft. The major con in my opinion is the packaging- the product tends to get stuck in the bottle and I had to use a little spoon to try and get everything out as well as bang the end of it- it's a thick consistency so I'm not sure why it's packaged this way, a jar would have been much more convenient.

However, this product is so affordable for having such great ingredients- it has no parabens, no phthalates, no paraffin, no gluten, no propylene glycol, no mineral oil, no synthetic fragrance, no animal testing, no PABA, no synthetic color, no DEA, no sulfates. It belongs to a three-generation family business and it looks like they're keeping it the way it started, will definitely repurchase.
