I love many of the scents from the body shop and this is one of them! I love love love the smell of raspberries! But this lotion is a little too light for me. I have dry skin and need something a bit heavier. It also leaves a sticky feeling which I can't stand. I have to wash my hands after applying which can't be good :(

This lotion is lovely. It smells like fresh, sweet raspberries and the scent lasts all day on the skin. The lotion comes in a pump bottle and is a medium consistency. It absorbs into the skin quickly and leaves it moisturized and soft, however this may not provide enough hydration for very dry skin, it works very well on my normal-dry skin however. A little goes a long way with this product. The smell is divine if you like sweet, fruity scents. It is also perfect for summer time. I would rebuy and recommend this product!

This lotion/puree is absolutley amazing... I am not sure how good of a job it does at moisturizing your skin, because I use it on top of a shea butter lotion i use every night and day, but it smells WONDERFUL. Its called a puree for a reason, everytime you put it on it feels and smells like you cut up chunks of raspberries and smothered them all over your body. There is no other smells of chemicals or additives- it smells exactly like fruit, nothing more nothing less. I also love that there products are as natural as they come, and they do not test on animals... you would be shocked if you really knew how many companies do actually test on animals. Smells amazing, all natural with no added chemicals and no testing on animals? its a win win... however you do pay the price as their products are not cheap. They have several sales through out the year- usually in Nov and Dec that help a little with the prices. I will pay the money for this product though... its well worth every penny.

This lotion has a sweet scent of fresh raspberries, but i hate it when my classmates told me that i smell like candies every morning. Plus the scent doesnt last for a long time, and i can smell nothing after 3 hours

I do like this scent and the fact that it has a pump. But I don't like that it's a bit too "fresh" as if it would have menthol or something. It also gives very light moisturisation so if you have dry skin then it probaply won't work for you. It's also expensive...

My new kitchen lotion. I spent too much money after X-Mas at TBS, and this is the first time that I have tried the body lotion. I usually buy body butter only. This lotion has a nice, light, fruity scent, and it does the job on my hands. I haven't tried this on my body, because I bought the raspberry body butter which I will will try once my coconut body butter is finished. I wish I would have stocked up on this lotion. I will do so in the summertime...

I still don't know why TBS would discontinue this fragrance, it is one of their best. This is available only during their semi-annual sales (after christmas and in the summer) and is limited to whatever stock they have, for the most part. Marked down to $8, I stocked up so I can last b/w sales. The pump and the thinner consistency makes it super easy to slather on after showering. It doesn't have that artificial taint to it and is light and fruity, not overpowering. I put this on in the office and people were asking me what I was wearing. It also gets absorbed into the skin very well...if you want the scent to last longer, I recommend layering with the shower gel or scrub and the body butter. The body butter is also a thin enough consistency where I mix it with the lotion in the pump to make a slightly thicker and more moisturizing mixture in the winter.

I got this for ten bucks in a sale which is a damn good price for here. The lotion itself is very, very light and quite watery (not thick). The scent is quite nice, they used raspberry seeds which are apparentely really good for your skin. I'd also like to say how good the bottle itself is - you can twist the pump to lock it so it doesn't leak. Awesome! One lipstick off because the scent doesn't linger for long.

Mmmm... so yummy and tart and fruity. Adore the scent! It's not as thick and creamy as BBW, but it's still nice. Makes my mouth water.

The smell is nice and all and the moisturizer does absorb quickly. But I hate the "sticky" feeling afterwards. It feels like dried fruit juice on your skin and it's uncomfortable when clothes rub against your skin cuz it sticks to it!
