This review is for the St. Ives body lotion in the new packaging, in the scent « creamy vanilla ». I loved this lotion. It goes on nicely, is thin in consistency but moisturizing, and the bottle last a really long time. As for the scent, it's a great scent, but it's not your typical vanilla scent. It's not soft vanilla, it's almost... boozy vanilla? It smells like rhum or bourbon or something like that. In fact, I thought the scent reminded me a lot of Amarretto alchool. it's really similar. It's a great scent, I like it, but sometimes when I was wearing that body lotion, the BF asked me if I was drinking, so I guess it's not a really good thing? I would repurchase this lotion, but I might not wear it while going to work or that might be weird hehehe

Smells like vanilla but not a sweet vanilla, it moisturizes okay.. I think jergens and nivea moisturizes a bit better.. And the other scents of st Ives mousturize a bit better than this one IMO... However I do love vanilla which is why I got this one.

This is my favourite drug store moisturizer. You can't beat the price, at about $4CAN when on sale. I am a sucker for vanilla bean fragrance, which is what drew me to this product initially. It has a wonderful light vanilla bean scent. It is not a heavy duty moisturizer by any means (i.e. not as moisturizing as a body butter), but excellent for normal to slightly dry skin. I find myself using this after showers and on my hands. It won't grease up your clothes or sheets, and it absorbs quickly into the skin. Even my boyfriend uses this when he has dry skin.

Eh this was just ok. The scent was not that great. Kinda gave me a headache. I ended up giving it away because I just never used it that often .

I purchased this product because it was on sale and I do not like the scents of other St. Ives lotions. The fragrance was very sweet and it went on smoothly, absorbing without being greasy or sticky. It did not fully moisturize my dry winter skin, however, it is not an extra strong lotion and it is to be expected. The biggest problem I have with this product is the pump. The one I purchased was defective and I have to use the pump stick to dispense the lotion. Overall, this is a good product for the price and it is probably best suited for spring and fall.

I think this is a very nice body lotion because it is very much less sticky than most lotion i used. The vanilla smells very nice but any other smell is just very annoying to me. It moisturise my skin well but after not using it for a few days my skin became crazy.

I will always repurchase this body lotion. The smell is divine but not overpowering (and my boyfriend loves it). As with all St. Ives body lotions, it is fast-absorbing and non-greasy. The moisturization is not terribly long-lasting but it's such a pleasure to apply that I don't mind.

This moisturiser is fantastic and smells soooo yummy! If you like sweet delicious vanilla scents then you'll love this moisturiser. It leaves a beautiful warm vanilla scent behind which I love! The moisturiser itself is great. It leaves my skin very soft and with no greasy residue. It doesn't leave my hands all greasy either after I've applied the lotion which I love and makes me wanna use this stuff even more. The price is cheap, the bottle is huge and I like the pump a lot more than moisturiser in a pot (more hygenic). Overall this is an extremely affordable indulgent moisturiser, and if you love vanillla :-) you'll love this!

Love this! I have exceptionally dry skin that doesn't seem to absorb moisture so normal moisturisers sit on my skin and feel greasy and transfer on to clothes,chairs etc. This product aborbs quickly into the skin and has a light, refreshing scent. Leaves my skin soft and moisturised and not greasy!

Good old St. Ives. This product has been around for a while (I still remember the old packaging). First, the smell. Yummy! I'm pretty sure everyone else has already summed it up, so I need not say more. But it's amazing. The best thing about this lotion. The consistency is nice, not too thick, but not watery. It spreads wonderfully and absorbs without a greasy residue. But I find that in half an hour, I'm dry all over again. So while I love using this cream, it is not even close to enough moisture for me :( But if you don't need a heavy duty moisturizer and love smelling like cookies, try this!
