I purchased this on a whim because CVS was having a sale on all Nuance products, so I got it as a great price. I think it regulary costs $8, for 10 fl oz. It is a very light feeling lotion. The same exact texture to Nivea "original moisture" body lotion, which I love. It feels kind of oily at first application, but then sinks into the skin immediately, without any trace of a greasy feeling left behind. It makes my skin super smooth and silky. I am guessing this probably wouldn't work too well if you have really dry skin.
The ingredients list are fantastic. Alot of natural oils in there, extracts, plus shea butter. I am really pleased with the fact that it does not contain any silicones, which alot of cheap drugstore lotions seem to have.
As far as the scent, it does smell likes roses. And something else....although I cannot pinpoint what it is. It sort of reminds me of that perfume "Lovely" by Sarah Jessica Parker. Although...I have a weird sense of smell, so don't count on this (maybe someone else here will agree? Or Not?) Anyway, it is a very feminine romanctic scent. And the scent does seem to linger on me for 2-3 hours. I always think the scent has faded, but then I will get a whiff of it.

This lotion is just OK. Pluses are it's light, not sticky, and if you like the scent, great. To me, this smells like a perfume that was popular in the 90s that smelled like rose but also had some tobacco and beer notes. I don't know what it was called, but I never really liked it. Of my three criteria for lotion—performance, scent, and value—this doesn't really meet any of them. It just isn't for me.

This is a luxurious flower-scented lotion with a lightweight consistency that is perfect for the summertime. The scent tends to linger bit and the moisture factor lasts all day. Also love the flip top tube container.

I got this after reading reviews on here, and am so glad I did. Nuance is an expensive brand, but this lotion was very reasonable, especially compared to companies like Lush. I believe this was $9 which seemed more than worth it to me. The smell is amazing, I am not used to drugstore products that smell like this. It's not generic or synthetic smelling at all, it smells like fresh roses. It reminds me of my Stella perfume, and of the Lush soap, scentenary. I do not find the smell stays more than a few hours unfortunately, but I don't mind reapplying. It's moisturizing without being greasy, and absorbs right into the skin. The consistency isn't too thin, or too thick. I love this and will repurchase. It's nicer than any of the Lush lotions I've tried.

This is a good body lotion. It smells nice and leaves your skin soft.

Love. I love this lotion. Absorbs quickly, leaves my skin smooth and soft. The smell is wonderful and I can smell it throughout the day without being overwhelmed by it. The only thing I don't like is that the bottle is kind of small, but that's only a complaint because there isn't a cvs near me so I'll have to go out of my way to get another bottle when this one runs out. I want to try more body washes/lotions from this line, because I'm seriously so impressed.

I am in love with this lotion. It's rich and creamy; perfectly hydrating my dry skin, even in the harsh winter months, without leaving a sticky film. Personally I love rose scents, so this is perfect for me. It's a not cloying and old-laydish, and after a few minutes it settles down to cling close to your skin. Even 12+ hours later as I moved around I was catching whiffs of lotion. Lastly, the ingredients are fantastic. My skin is very sensitive to silicones, and finding a drugstore lotion without them is tough, but this is full of natural ingredients. I will definitely repurchase this over and over; I already have a back-up bottle .

I passed by this product a couple weeks ago and thought great another celebrity bodycare/makeup/fragrance, that was until today when I read a rather great review for it over at Now Smell This. I would like to add that my usual go to moisturizer is Aveeno and I have adored it for a long time because of the lack of residue and stickiness. So I wasn't sure what to expect with this lotion I admit I bought because of the high marks the rose scent of the lotion got from Now Smell This, well what they didn't mention is lotion leaves you skin velvety and absorbs beautifully, I actually keep touching my arm because it feels so nice. The scent is really nice and very light, just a touch of rose with nice green notes, but unless you know it is there I doubt anyone is going to notice it. I highly recommend it and now I am rather tempted to get as a present for others.
