This is a wonderful product! It moisturizes well and sinks in beautifully. It smells very earthy, with some citrus notes and spice, which can be odd if you're not used to natural product scents. It doesn't feel waxy at all and makes my skin soft. I don't have much else to say other than I can recommend this lotion without hesitation.

I agree with those who said it was runny for a lotion, but I'm ok with that except for my hands. I've found also that after a few months, you need to shake it a little as it separates. The fragrance is a sort of mandarine orange which I like but could be too strong for some people. The dark blue glass protects the essential oils, although it has crashed to the floor a lot (not broken at least). In general, I've always found the Weleda brand to be very high quality. And sea buckthorn is meant to have excellent benefits for skin.

I bought a sampler kit and Sea Buckthorn was part of it. Even those it says lotion it is pretty runny for a lotion which doesnt bother me as it is supposed to be more natural but just as an fyi for all the MUAers! It decently moisturizes but wears out after 4 hours. Given the price and that my skin doesnt stay soft I will not buy this again.

Found a 2-for-1 sale at CVS on Weleda products, which I used to use on my baby, but haven't purchased in a long time. I hadn't tried this lotion before, so thought I'd try it. It's ok... nothing impressive for the price. It's kind of runny and thin and I prefer heavier, creamier lotions. Unlike other reviewers, I don't mind the bottle, although I wouldn't travel with it. The scent is pleasant, although I generally avoid scented cosmetics and skin care products since I wear perfume. I do appreciate that Weleda products are all-natural and that the bottle can be recycled.

I have to agree with everybody about the packaging. As far as looks go, I kind of like the glass bottle, but for using, it's very uncomfortable. To be honest, I don't really like the smell of it either. Something about the smell reminds me of little babies xD The only thing I like about it is how moisturizing it is. It leaves my skin feeling very smooth and hydrated :)

So I have to agree with everyone else that the packaging is horrible, the glass bottles are really stupid - it's impossible to get everything out and it takes a while to get it out as well. Other than that I love it, the smell is very fresh, but isn't overpowering and you barely smell it once it's on. It absorbs nicely as well, but not special enough for me to spend that much money on it again.

This is a very nice lotion---it smells fresh & nice and absorbs quickly. I think the blue glass bottle is very pretty but I don't know that it is the most functional, including a pump might be helpful to get all of the product out. The consistency is fairly runny, which is not a bad thing, it just seems packaging in a tube might make it easier to get all the product out. As much as this stuff costs, I would like to be able to use every drop of it. I found this on the clearance aisle at Ulta for half off; there is no way I would have paid full price for it. I found this to be nicely scented and moisturizing but not greasy. It absorbed quickly too. I normally use Lubriderm, which I also find to be moisturizing, non-greasy, and quick-absorbing. The difference for me is the Weleda smells nicer. I will use and enjoy my bottle of Weleda but will be going back to the Lubriderm. I might consider switching to the Weleda but it is just too expensive. EDIT: husband LOVES the scent of this lotion. Says that I smelled "delicious" after applying it!!

Again, what is up with the packaging, Weleda?
This whole glass bottle thing is not working for me.
It would be MUCH more user friendly if they put the product in a squeeze tube.
The product smelled like oranges.
At first it just sat on my skin but after a long time it finally sunk in (or rubbed off or evaporated ....I'm not exactly sure but I'll give Weleda the benefit of the doubt and say that it sunk in).
I haven't really seen any improvements so far but I will continue to use it....even though it will be a pain in the butt because of the stupid packaging.

I have to say I like the Sea Bucthorn Body Oil of Weleda much more than the lotion. The oil is rich, heavenly scented and produces a glowing, soft skin, whereas the lotion does not hydrate enough for my liking and smells overpoweringly. Moreover, the usual glass bottle Weleda uses for its products is totally unfunctional for a lotion: you either get too much or too little of the product and it`s simply impossible to fully empty the bottle. If you`re in a hurry in the morning it`s anyway much more time-consuming to rub in a lotion on dry skin than to spread oil on wet skin when still in shower. The oil is at that more economical and thus money-saving.

i love the scent. it smells like oranges left in the hot sun. the lotion is thin yet not watery and absorbs quickly. i like this for when i am in a hurry and need to moisturize fast. i will reuse the bottle when it is empty for a homemade blend of some kind since the bottle is light resistant.
