I like this lotion quite a bit, especially for the price. I got mine on sale for about $7- normally I think it is $9 at Long's. It's a pretty big tube, and a little goes a long way. It moisturizes very well and doesn't irritate my skin like so many scented lotions do. The fragrance is ok. It starts out as a sweet almond that I personally like, but once it settles onto the skin, the sweetness weakens and the scent gets nuttier, which I don't like as much but don't really dislike either. It's not an overpowering scent, which is nice.

Desert Essence's Almond lotion is more sugar than it is almond. I prefer my almond scents more bitter, but scent aside, the texture of this is smooth, not greasy, and sinks in nicely. Still, I've found better. $11 CDN at drugstores or health food stores.
