I don't have a problem with the smell, and I think that it does moisturize for the most part...my only problem comes from the deodorant-like marks I get on my clothes from this lotion....even hours after drying. I haven't seen any other similar comments, so maybe it's just me, but I wish it didn't smear white marks on my outfits!
I'm pretty surprised about all of the positive reviews this is getting! The scent actually made me feel nauseous the first couple times I used it... so strong... And even worse than that, my skin just felt suffocated and like I had a layer of wax on! It's like it never absorbed and just sat there and was so sticky! My clothes were even sticking to my skin... And it lasts all day. I've tried it a fair amount of times...I thought maybe it was the humidity in the air the first couple times I wore it, but nope it's really just that bad. Definitely would not recommend or purchase again.
I made the mistake of putting this on my face, and it completely made me break out. After reading some reviews saying how it's not so great for the skin on your face (and my bad experience with it), I certainly won't make that mistake again...
But I also haven't seen one single bad review about this product, so I am really excited to try it on my body as a post-shower moisturizer. I've used Aveeno products before and have loved them, so I am hoping this one works well for my body too.
Also, I love the smell of it! It is not too strong, and it is so soothing and light.
UPDATE: I've used this for a couple weeks now on my body and I like it, but it took time for me to figure out where to use this and where NOT to use it. It works wonderfully on my legs and arms, but it broke my chest out. The smell is great, and it doesn't linger. It leaves the skin on my legs so soft!
Its not the best moisturizer out there but it does a decent job. I don't think it really helps with stress but I still like the light texture and smell.
Love this scent! I'm not a huge fan of lavender fragrances, so I was iffy on this, but it doesn't smell like lavender at all! Has a very nice floral scent that lingers all day. Makes my hands super soft. The big bottle will last quite a while!
This is one of my favorite lotions. I've used Aveeno's Daily Moisturizing lotion before (no scent), and while it's amazing, I wanted something a little lighter but still moisturizing for the warmer months. I'm hooked. The scent is to die for- it is light and in no way artificial or overbearing once applied- it's hard to describe, just slightly floral and pretty. If you're one who cannot stand scented beauty products, I would opt for the Daily Moisturizing lotion-- both have excellent moisturizing properties, but the Daily Moisturizing Lotion is fragrance-free (but it's pretty heavy duty). The Stress Relief Moisturizing Lotion is the perfect balance of light and moisturizing. It's not too thick/waxy, nor is it watered down.I apply this after I take a shower, and am left with perfectly soft skin that lasts throughout the day, and even onto the next, so there's no need to reapply. I LOVE the scent too, which lingers on my skin, so it sometimes takes the place of perfume (two birds with one stone :) ). It doesn't smell of lavender, so I'm assuming it's more Ylang-Ylang -y, though I'm not sure. Now, I don't expect a miracle product that's going to melt the stress away (a nice, hot bath with lavender oil would do), but I really enjoy using this lotion, because it really does leave my skin moisturized ALL day, and then some. I can't believe I went so long without using a lotion daily. If I could fall in love with a lotion, this would be it, lol.
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!
It's such a gorgeous smell, and this coming from a fragrance sensitive person! I normally am too lazy to use lotions/creams for body but this makes it so fun and easy...love that it gets absorbed straightaway and is so lightweight. Even if I don't use it daily, it keeps my skin soft for a few days.Love using it after gym to relax my muscles.The packaging is very easy to use and I have repurchased and will so again.
This stuff makes your skin baby-bottom-soft, especially when combined with the body wash. The scent is great and relaxing--perfect for early mornings when you start your day and at night when you end it. I have a skin condition but this stuff didn't irritate it at all and actually improved my skin's appearance.
I love this stuff! It's not a heavy duty moisturizer but for after the shower, or daily hand lotion is is doing pretty well keeping my skin hydrated. It sinks in fast, and doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy. I really like the scent too. It smells sort of like lavender with other floral notes, but isn't overpowering or old lady smelling at all. It's a tad expensive for a drugstore product (14 dollars Canadian) but it lasts long and my skin feels great so I don't mind so much.
Oh and it has a pump! I love lotions that come with a pump because otherwise I always end up getting the cap all dirty.
I really love this product, i bought it last night because I've heard a lot of the benifits of oatmeal, and I drink chamomile tea at home and it really does relax me. I bought it as it was on sale (10$ instead of 14$ for the 532ml) and tried it on after my shower. This made my skin feel so soft and has a very nice scent. I put in on after my shower because my pores open up and that's when you should really moisturize to get the benifits of this product. My hands/body is really softer, though it does dry up fast the moisture is sort of locked in your skin. The part that says "Stress Relief" doesn't actually means it takes away your stress, and I've seen people write that it was disapointing because it doesn't get rid of their stress. It may not to relieve you of it emotionally, but phisically you can see you skin looking more relaxed and rejuvenated after one use. It is pricey but I would really recommend this product because it has a lot of godd sides for me and my skin. This may not work on everybody, because it all depends on the way you maintain your skin, so you should know what would be best for you judging by you daily skin routine. I hoped this helped you if you were thinking of buying this product! (:
P.S. I do NOT recomment this for your face, because your facial needs and your body nees are very different, this product may cause your face to create extra sebum because it dries up fast, buy a lotion made for your face instead of a body lotion.
P.P.S. Sorry forgot to add that in the beggining, it does feel greasy, let it settle in a bit and it'll feel normal and soft again. (:
