LOVE this lotion!! It does a great job of moisturizing and it's light, not heavy or greasy. The best thing about it is the classic cherry almond smell. I really can't get enough of it.

I can't believe I am so in love with Jergens lotion but nothing compares to it in this catagory for me. I live in New England and the winters here can be rough on skin. During the winter months, I tend to get itchy, eczema like patches of red irritated skin on my arms and torso. Plus dry flaky skin on my legs. Over the years, I have tried oils, butters, lotions all either HE or drug store. Nothing really seemed to help all that much and I would have to live with it till the warmer weather rolled around.

I ended up picking this up because of the scent. I have been addicted to cherry almond scents since I was a teen and used Vidal Sassoon hair products (80's not the new current line) and was completely hooked on it. Much to my surprise, I love this lotion. It's not too heavy, it heals and makes those itchy patches disappear and smells divine. It's easy to get and easy on the wallet.

It's kinda of perfect. Love!

Classic!! Like Oil Of Olay original, Loves Baby Soft, Noxema, Seabreeze, or Dove bar soap, I would put it into a timeless catagory such as those. Smells soooo good. I had a friend who wore it (my mom isn't much on lotions & cosmetics so didn't grow up w it), but I think fondly of her. I asked her what smelled so good & she let me in on her secret. Well this lotion isn't much of a secret since millions love this scent/formula & it's a best seller for a reason, plus it's nice that you can get it at just about any DS. I have a ton of VS & B&BW lotions but if I had to pare down my collection, I would always keep a bottle (at least 1!!) around. This is my HG lotion. I keep coming back after not being as happy w my more expensive, heavily scented lotions. I wish I could find a perfume EDT type product that has this exact smell. On another note, not only love this lotion but also love the hand soap. I cannot say enough good things about this lotion. Good scent, great price, the pump container is convenient, & it's readily available at a lot of stores. Love, love, love!!

Yummy smell and not greasy. I've paid lots for other almond scented lotions but this,by far, is the best.

I have always loved this lotion, when I was a little girl my grandmother used it. It came in a glass bottle, I thought it smelled heavenly. It brings back memories every time I smell it.

Anyway, 5 lippies for cherry-almond fragrance and being able to use this lotion on any area of the face and body. 5 lippies to the Jergen's company for continuing to keep this lotion on the shelves for so many years.

I would say it gives light to moderate moisturizing, I use it mainly in the summer months. I will always buy this lotion.

I love this lotion. It makes my skin feel so soft and it doesn't wear off after a few hours, it lasts all day. It's easy and fast to rub in and doesn't leave me feeling all greasy.

the packaging is a huge oval-like bottle, and easy to see over all the other miscellaneous things I have on my dresser. I can't say the packaging makes it easy to get the last bit out of the bottle, which does bug me because it's a hassle trying to get out the last bit, but it is cute while there is a lot of product in there.

I would buy this over and over again. It's a bit more pricey than Vaseline lotion, but I'll spend the extra dollar or two for this. I've found Vaseline lotion makes me feel a bit greasy, which I hate, especially if I'm putting on long pants after moisturizing my legs. I don't find this product to be greasy at all, in fact, it's the perfect moisturizer.

Reminds me of my mom using this when I was little, so a nostalgic smell for me. Average as a moisturizer, not too light not too heavy.

Love this! Kept my skin so smooth all winter long and I love the cherry/almond scent. Fairly inexpensive and easy to find at any store. I will repurchase this fact, I have. A great body lotion for dry skin!

I needed a new moisturizer, and was browsing the isles, couldn't find one that seemed like it would suit my dry/semi sensitive skin, when I remembered I use to use about 14 yrs ago, jergens. Took a whiff of the original scent and it took me back to when I was younger. I had to buy it. Glad I did, very moisturizng but not greasy. Leaves my skin soft and smooth. It has improved the appearance of my dry hands dramatically. Love this stuff.
