The body lotion is normally $9.99 (32 oz) but Walgreens had all their c.Booth products on sale this week for 50% off, so I had to try this lotion based on all the good reviews. There were 3 scents available -- Coconut Fig which was way too strong, Vanilla Sugar which was not as strong but still intense, and Lemon Sugar which is also strong but was the least offensive of the 3. Now lemon is my favorite scent/flavor -- I love cooking and baking with lemon, I love lemon scented face scrubs (Dr. Brandt's), etc. but I'm not a big fan of the scent of this lotion. The lotion itself smells like those lemon Italian ices you can find in the supermarket freezer aisle -- sickly sweet, artificial and candy-ish which is fine, but when I put it on my skin and let it sit for a minute, it becomes a sharp, sweet, spicy citrus smell. I can't say that I like it. It reminds me a lot of a powdered carpet freshener/deodorizer that I used to have...pungent is one word I'd use to describe it, cloying is another. The smell seems to fade somewhat after awhile but it's still strong and continues to linger. However, let me also say that I don't like perfumed things in general, so what I consider an offensive odor might be perfectly fine for others. The texture of Booth's Lemon Sugar lotion is on the thin side but absorbs quickly and isn't greasy. I don't think I will repurchase, and the bottle I have will be returned or given to my sis. There's no way I'd make it through this huge strong smelling bottle; this lotion is way past my smell tolerance level.

Bought the huge 32oz pump bottle at Walgreens for $10, and I love it. Initially it smells just like Fresh's Lemon Sugar. A sweet lemon drop scent without any sharpness. It dries down pretty quickly to an exact dup of Aquolina's Pink Sugar and it lasts as that for quite a while. The lotion itself is great. Smooth, silky, absorbs fast without any greasiness or stickiness, my jeans go on without a problem within 5 min, and the AHA's make my skin feel like silk. Its definitely moisturizing enough for my winter skin and I don't get the prickly's or itchy skin at the end of the day like I do with most other lotions. I switch between this and L'Occitanes Almond Milk Concentrate (firms my skin like no other) every other day and my skin is really looking great and soothed. Love using it as a hand cream all day long. Keeps the scent going, makes my hands feel super smooth and moisturized, and doesn't leave greasy prints everywhere. Great stuff.

I love this stuff! I'm a sucker for anything lemon-scented, so this huge bottle of lotion is perfect for me. It's super moisturizing, and isn't greasy. My friend even commented on it's non-greasiness when she tried it. It contains AHAs, a little Retinol, and caffeine. I don't rely on these ingredients to do much, just consider them extra perks. The only potential problem with this lotion is it contains the dreaded PARABENS ahhhhhhh. but really. Methylparaben and Propylparaben. So if you're concerned about that kind of thing, this lotion isn't for you :(

Bought this because Walgreen's was having a sale and I've been curious about the Booth's stuff (but didn't want to pay $12 for one of the jumbo bottles only to find that I hated it). This is a nice lotion. It has a lot of good ingredients, including apricot kernel oil, Vitamin E, etc. It has a thick but not too-thick texture, very creamy but not greasy, but it absorbs fairly quickly. My skin feels pretty soft when I apply this regularly, but it's not as smooth as when I use Lac-Hydrin (I have KP).
I like the scent (Lemon Sugar) a whole lot. It's sweet but not cloyingly so. (I have to add that the Vanilla Sugar version smells EXACTLY like Aquolina's Pink Sugar EDT). It lingers for a long time, though, and is fairly strong, so this lotion isn't great to use in the morning unless you don't wear perfume and don't mind smelling like dessert for awhile.
I like the pump bottle and old-timey-ish label. The size makes it a good value but the drawbacks are that a) I might get tired of the lotion and take forever to use it up, b) it's too big to fit in the medicine cabinet so I have to keep it on my windowsill. Will add it to my rotation of body lotions.

I was so excited when I randomly saw this at Walgreen's. (Strangely enough, the first Walgreen's didn't carry it) They only had Lemon Sugar and Vanilla Butter, and both smelled very very sweet. A little too sweet! I ended up buying Vanilla Butter at the last minute because it smelled like cotton candy, and wanted to return it the next day because Lemon Sugar turned into a nice fresh smell on my left hand, but my boyfriend loved the cotton candy smell and I ended up keeping it. Ha! I'm going back soon to get Lemon Sugar, however. :)
Anyway. This lotion is SO nice. It really moisturizes without being greasy, and keeps me feeling smooth and soft for hours at a time. The smell doesn't seem to fade that much either. It's in a big, fatty bottle that dispenses a fair amount of lotion, and is definitely worth the ~$10.

I just want to say that in general, Booth's products are quite good. I love the country store, old fashioned apoethecary style of these products. Like Watkins, they evoke a certain nostalgia. Price wise, Booth's products are quite reasonable. This lotion is wonderful -- thick, rich, hydrating, but not sticky or greasy. The scent is vanilla-lemon. It smells like a lemon sugar cookie, lemon pudding, or a lemon bar. Very sweet and yummy. The scent is strong and it lingers. It would pair well with Fruits and Passion Lemon Vanilla, Love's Fresh Lemon, Fresh Lemon Sugar, or I Profumi di Firenze Limone di Sicilia. Scrumptuous.

Bought this one on clearance at WalMart ~ the last two. Just as fabulous as the Vanilla Butter but has an energizing juicy citrus scent. Not overpowering at all, the scent lingers for a bit wonderfully. I have been using the VB one for a while now and have noticed wonderful results with my skin ~ more radiance, tautness, extremely moisturized and just plain beautiful! I hope they are not discontinuing these as it took me forever to find my HG of body lotions!! UPDATE: I just found that Walgreens is recently stocking these in case you are looking for them. :)

I just bought this and I love it. The texture is wonderful. It soaks right in, doesn't leave a residue, but still moisturizes well. My favorite part: this smells so great. I'm picky when it comes to lemony smells. Most of them seem to smell like Pledge or Lysol to me, but this smells almost exactly like my Suki Lemongrass Cleanser (if you've ever used this, you know what I'm talking about). It's a refreshing combo of sweet and citrus. Also, my SO, who is very picky about lotion, likes the way this smells and feels on me. Definitely a keeper. And for $7 at Walmart, I will definitely repurchase when or if I ever run out. Great find. Thanks MUA!

I am such a sheep-I saw the vanilla one on featured reviews and I decided that I was going to have to get it.Thankfully,my Wal-Mart had all the scents available,and I decided the vanilla was a bit on the floral side.I sniffed the lemon sugar and thought,'this is a keeper.'
If you're enamorite of the Watkins shea butter creme in lemon then you'll love this.The consistency is much lighter,of course,being a lotion,but I used it after my shower last night and wow! It's well into winter in the Northeast and I am dry,itchy,and very irritated,both physically and mentally.I've tried Nature's Gate oatmeal (which is usually my go-to for winter skin),Dove pro age,Cetaphil and a soy lotion that my bff from high school makes and sells locally.All are good initially,but then as the day wears on I'm itchy as heck.It's like my skin is too small for my body.I must say the scent is lovely,not overpowering,like a lemon pound cake,and my skin feels comfortable-ahhh! It's even much softer and my skin irritation (from being overly dry) is even gone.
One thing that scares me a bit is that there was a "D" on the label below the product-I'm hoping that's not the dreaded 'discontinued.' At any rate,I have a huge bottle of this I paid under $10 for,so I should be set for awhile.

I've been thinking about posting a review of this stuff and then I saw yours and figured I'd jump in. I very rarely buy b&b stuff at walmart's but when I came across this, the combination of the ingredients and the great fresh lemon smell sold me. Whether the actives work as one might expect is yet to be seen, but even if this is nothing more than a great smelling body lotion, I'll be quite satisfied.

I bought this because it smells divine. I love lemon and for some reason it doesn't seem to be very popular in lotions. Anyway, it was also only $9.88 at Walmart, and you get 32 ounces. This is definitely the largest bottle of lotion I've ever bought. It has AHAs, sweet almond, apricot kernel, and shea butter oils, vitamins and minerals, and caffeine which is supposed to firm and tone. It absorbs quickly and is not greasy, and the smell does not linger longer than a few minutes. Great stuff for my dry winter skin.
