I have this in the Unscented version. I love it! Really moisturizers my dry and sensitive skin so well and leaves it calm and smooth. No irritation whatsoever. Thumbs up!

Miracle body lotion! Feels light as air and still moisturizes extremely dry skin. Light whipped creamy feeling with no strong odors. Nice consistency that is not oily and does not leave a residue.

I love this lotion. I have normal skin with dry patches. I'm also prone to breakouts on my back/chest if I use the wrong product. This is definitely the RIGHT product. I've been using this lotion for over a year. It sinks right in, feels very smooth and is the perfect consistency. It's neither too thin or too thick. I put it on after every bath/shower and my skin is always soft. Always. It doesn't cause any breakouts. Overall, it just makes my skin look healthier. The scent is very light, and I think it's pleasant. I love this and will continue to buy.

EDIT 4/23/14: I still like this for my legs, but will not continue to buy. This caused little bumps on my arms. They're not pimples. It might be keratosis pilaris, but I have NEVER had a problem with this or anything like this in my life. It's slowly starting to go away now that I'm using different lotion.

Let me just start by saying that this is the best stuff ever. First of all, I don't really have dry skin to begin with, so I didn't use a moisturizer for a long time. I knew that most other lotions had all sorts of chemicals that wouldn't benefit my skin, so I thought that I would just be better off without using any lotion at all. Then, I came across this little gem. I honestly didn't think I would see a difference in my skin because I never noticed it being dry; I really only bought this lotion because I saw that it was natural. After using it every night for about three or four days, my skin looked gorgeous. Like, soft and shiny and beautiful and I am now in love with this lotion because it is good for your skin, it doesn't contain anything that would make me leery of using it, and it honestly just works. :)

This lotion is the best I have come across. I have dry skin that gets irritated and itchy with other products, but, this lotion does not irritate my skin at all. It is also lightly scented and super moisturizing. The best part about this lotion is not having to worry about all the chemicals and petroleum and all that other gross stuff in other products. I purchase this lotion from Vitacost.com because they have the best price on this product. I will not use any other lotion, I am extremely happy with this one.

I've been using the original v.e.b.l. since 2003. It is a holy grail body lotion for me. I have tried a few different lotions since just to make sure I wasn't missing out on anything. Nothing works for me like this. I have very sensitive and reactive skin. V.e.b.l. not only doesn't irritate my skin, it soothes and improves it. After application, there is no residue, and it sinks in fast. However, 24 hours later when I shower again, I can feel it and smell it washing off. Some might think that is odd, but I take that as a sign it really is doing its job. I notice when I use other lotions, my skin can look dull, but with this it actually has more of a luminous glow. I love the fresh scent that is not overpowering, and it will not compete with fragrances.

I will warn you that the unscented seems to have a different texture, and I don't like it as well. It is thicker and greasier. The other warning I will give you is only buy the largest bottle you can get through in a couple months. Due to the natural ingredients, it doesn't have a long shelf life. I've had large bottles go rancid on me.

I recommend this to everyone.

This is my favorite lotion of all time. I use the maximum formula though..my skin's super dry. This stuff soaks right into your skin and never leaves any sort of greasiness. I use this after shaving combined with tea tree oil and it helps incredibly with irritation and razor burn, dryness, etc. I also didn't love the smell when I bought it but I really like it now. It's hard to describe it's kind of a flowery earthy scent. love that the bottle is huge so it lasts me a good two months or so which isn't bad since I don't even have to moisturize at night with this stuff. I get mine at Target usually for around 20 bucks which is kinda steep but it's really worth it.

I can't get over how weird this smells! It stinks to me. Idk how to describe what this smells like. I tried the unscented one and it smells very similar to this one. Too bad I bought the huge bottle too w/ the pump. I'm only using this before I go to bed at night till I finish it but I dont use it in the morning before I leave to go out or go to work or school. This does a decent job moisturizing but it doesn't stay for long. I prefer shea moisture coconut & hibiscus lotion. Smells yummy and is organic.

The Fragrance-Free lotion is the one that I use b/c I am picky about scents. I love that this is like a basic body lotion, but instead of something bland like Curel or Jergens, its loaded with so many great antioxidants! Plus, its natural without any Parabens etc, so its a perfect lotion. Best part, my legs don't ever itch...anymore!

At first I liked this, and then hadn't bought a new bottle in awhile but finally did. Maybe something changed?!?! But now, my skin is dry after an hour or two AND I get a painful rash and red skin from this. I just threw the bottle out. I see a lot of people like it, so great for them. But for me, this was such a waste! Also, I saw on vitacost reviews and a few other websites, that people used to use this with great success like me, but something changed about the formula and they are now having bad reactions to it. So it is not just me!
