I got this in a mini version in Kiwi and Lime. It is a good quality hand lotion, though nothing amazing about it. It absorbs pretty quick, smell nice, and makes your hands soft like it is supposed to.

Picked up three of the little baby bottles on sale for 99c at my local beauty supply. Bought three because I love Essie and figured these would be good and so cheap. One for home, purse and work. I bought the kiwi lime and Pear and Fig scents. They smell nice. The formula is quite runny and goes on sort of wet feeling. Dries very quickly, but not very moisturizing. Its more like a body lotion than something designed for hands. I might save these for summer, because it doesn't really cut it for my super dry winter hands. Dislike the bottle shape and stiffness, hard to squeeze out the product. Maybe the larger sizes dispense better though. Would not repurchase, glad they were cheap.

I bought one bottle of aloe vera. I like how it absorbs straight awaym leaving my kin soft. It is a good choice for night treatment (a it contains AHA's) in summer. AHA's could be a bit stronger for better effects.

I got the kiwi & lime version in a mini bottle from my nail salon. I like that it dries off pretty fast... however, my hands are actually kind of dry and they still felt dry even after using it. Probably will not purchase it again. The upside is that it smells really good!

I purchased the unscented pump bottle as part of a mail order so I could exceed the minimum for free shipping. I think it came to $10. I keep it by my computer to remind myself to use it often and I do. That's the good news.
The bad news is that it is not very moisturizing. However, I don't want anything too greasy when I am typing on the keyboard or shuffling papers around so perhaps this Essie was a good idea after all.
There are lots of other more moisturizing, less expensive lotions out there. I generally use them at night before bed. Unless I can snag another Essie lotion for half price, as others below were fortunate enough to do, I probably won't buy this again. For what it does ten dollars is too much money. I can probably find a similar product in the drugstore for a few dollars.

I have this in the fragrance free version. It isn't greasy at all--soaks right into the skin within minutes. The problem is that it just isn't moisturizing enough, especially on my hands. I'd like to sniff the other scents available in this line out of curiosity, but I probably wouldn't repurchase.

I have the Essie Smoothies Hand & Body Lotion in KIWI & LIME!!!! This scent is so awesome. At first I thought it reminded me of a margarita and a local spa was offering a summer margarita pedicure, and they were using this. However, my friends at work did a smell test and apparently this smells just like Diet Mountain Dew, as well. Interesting. Anyway, I am a huge fan of this scent. The lotion is great because it soaks in IMMEDIATELY!!! No wait time, it's instant. No greasy hands! LOVE it and will repurchase. Have not tried the other scents, yet.

I bought the pomegranate mango scent and I love how the lotion feels but to me the scent starts to smell plastic-y almost after a while of wearing it. Maybe it's just this scent but I probably would not repurchase due to the after-scent. Otherwise I like how it absorbs and it is not greasy at all.

i really like this because the consistency is just right. it is moisturizing yet nongreasy. and the fragrances are pleasing. most scented lotions i find too cloying or too light. this one does the trick.

Mediocre, decent. but I probably won't buy it again. I got it on sale at the local grocery store for half off so I gave it a try. I bought the Lime one. I use it primarily as a hand lotion. It isn't greasy at all but on the other hand it doesn't seem to hydrate enough and I need to reapply it constantly. It has AHA's in it which I like but it leaves my hands slightly dry, even after applying it. The scents are pretty good though, but I just think there are better lotions out there.

I bought several of these when they were 75% off at my local beauty supply store. The scents are nice, I like the pump dispenser, and I like that the lotion isn't greasy. My problem is that it isn't quite moisturizing enough for my hands. I have to reapply several times throughout the morning. I don't think this lotion will be strong enough to handle my dry skin during the winter. Another problem is that the lotion seems to dry out every day in the pump nozzle. Not a big deal, just a little annoying. I'll finish the bottles I have, but I don't see myself repurchasing.

I have the aloe rich & fragrance free lotion, that I use at work at the hospital. At work I have to wash my hands often and use disinfects that dry out my hands. This lotion does a very good job! My hands feel soft and hydrated after, and it absorbs fast, without a olily/greasy film. The only bad thing with this is that if I have really dry hands the hydrated feeling doesn't last that long, so I have to use it more often. Works good for my tired and dry feet to.

I bought all six of these at this amazing store where they got like 75% discount of seche, opi, essie, orly sooooooo many more!!! The pumps great, although once you open the bottle its quite hard to open and close it, but the bottles are so huge i would give up on any attempt on traveling with them (although you can get the mini sizes) The only fragrance i liked out of all six of them is the lemon - beautiful fragrance. The lotion absolutly amazing i swear the texture of my skin has completely changed, Im 16 and very luckliy blessed with good skin, I body brush daily and exfolitate twice a week - and i wanted to use this to layer on my forearms and lower legs and my sun damaged neck on top of my morning and i have the most gorgeous smooth, even and it's a deffinaltey very light, smooth beautiful moisterizer. Rubbish on hands my hands are starved when i use this, which just shows thats its very light.

I got this in lemon and guava and it's awesome -- lovely, clean fruity scent. Really like this! Absorbs into skin in an instant, and the consistency is just like a smoothie. Wouldn't use for dry, parched hands as it can be too light. But then you can always apply more and more... :o)

i bought the full size blueberry and banana and the small size in cranberry and tangerine. i initially used it as hand cream but started using it on my body as well which is really good. its not sticky at all and it smells nice! on my hands, sometimes its not rich enough (i have super dry damaged hands..) my full size bottle is almost done now.. i'll probably try out other brands and repurchase if nothing else is better than this!

I came across these in Harmon last week and snatched up the Coconut & Pineapple one. Delicious! I'm a sucker for anything that smells tropical, and I LOVE Pina Colada/Coconut smells. This lotion is great- not sticky, absorbs REALLY fast and the scent lasts surprisingly long on me. Hours later, I'm still sniffing my arm. Now if only they came out with a matching splash, I'd be in heaven!
The price is good too, around $6.00 for 8oz of product. The bottle looks really tiny though, especially in comparision to my Clinique lotion with is over $10.00 for 6.7 oz. Definite repurchase when I run out!

I love these things!!! At the trade show, I bought the cute little 6,$20 for 6, not bad!! It came with coconut & pineapple, blueberry & banana, kiwi & lime, pomegranate & mango, lemon & guava and cranberry & tangerine. They smell soo good, and make my skin soo smooth!! I highly recommend these :)
