What an incredible product. It is so cheap! I can't believe it. Usually stuff with cocoa butter, like Palmer's, is too heavy for me. This lotion is actually kind of thin and runny but don't worry, it will really get the job done. My skin feels incredible soft and smooth after I use this, especially if I put it on after shaving. Some products can sting/burn/irritate my skin after shaving but this doesn't do that. With this I have finally found that mystical product that absorbs quickly but still gets through to my dry skin. The scent is alright. Not my favorite but it doesn't last long. Honestly this could probably smell terrible and I would keep buying it because of the amazing results and value.

I'm really on the fence about this lotion, but I will continue to use it up because I don't want to waste it. I used this in high school and I loved it. I'm not sure if they changed the ingredients, but now that I know more about skincare, I can see this lotion doesn't have very good ingredients. And coco butter and lanolin are very low on the list behind propylene glycol and lauryl sulfate which is weird because I was pretty sure that strips your skin. What I do like about this lotion is that it doesn't have an overpowering scent, and the way it absorbs fast and it's not greasy, and I like the feel of my skin it leaves. But the problem I have with it is the next day or even a few hours later my legs feel really itchy. So I'm worried that it dries out my skin. I will use it up tho. Overall I think it's a decent lotion with a huge bottle if you don't need to much moisture and I think you get what you pay for as far as the ingredients.

I started using this lotion when I was 13. I had no idea about skincare or ingredients. i washed my face with dove soap, used a toner, and then put this on my skin from head to toe. I never had acne as a teen, just the occasional break out during my period. I am now 27 and my skin is changing. without writing a novel, my skin broke out like it never has before. i tried so many things. now i am back to my "teen routine" dove soap, toner, and this lotion to moisturize my face. my skin cleared up within a week.

This is just a overall great value. It comes in a huuuuge bottle and its dirt cheap. I believe its under 3 bucks at walmart. It is very watery though. I heard that they changed the formulation on it. It used to be thick but now its very thin. It does absorb nicely but i feel customers will be happier if it was creamier. But you can't beat the value considering how large this bottle is. I love queen helene products and this is another one that I can add to the list. I will warn those with skin conditions like eczema or any type of rashes...DON'T apply this onto your skin if you fit in that category. I have eczema and I thought this being cocoa butter will help with the discoloration..burns like crazy. So untill your skin decides to chill out don't use. Other than that, a cheap moisterizer for a very very low price.

Best product for stretchmarks that you can buy. If you have some at your local CVS and are suffering from stretch marks, slather this on them!! It makes a big difference and helps a lot in my opinion

I wrote a review for the kind in the jar and now I'm re reviewing. This product is horrible it stinks like something other than coco butter and it is extremely drying on my legs n face it drie them out horribly especially my face now I have dry irritated patches from scratching. Plz avoid this if u have sensitive skin or very dry skin it is a cheap product that doesn't do what it claims to. Save your 2.00 and buy something else like keri lotion. And the jar version of this is just as bad it doesn't help wrinkles it is oily and dries out the skin with irritation.

I bought this lotion because it's cruelty free and cheap.
This product is very very VERY watery. I just spilled half the bottle. When it settled there was a clear line where the ingredients would seperate themselves, like oil and water and if i didnt shake it there would always be little chunks just floating around. It feels very strange when you first put it on like trying to use bar soap as a lotion. But once you get past that its very moisturizing and has a light scent. It works well as a facial moisturizer too, I dont think ill be buying this again.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate in lotion? When they test ingredients for sensitivity, they do a 24 hour patch test. This fails in that test, but it's the way that it's intended to be used that people unfortunately have misconceptions about (as a cleansing detergent, like in shampoos, or even in some conditions like Lush's, which help the other conditioning ingredients rinse out). In a shampoo, since it's mixed with other ingredients to decrease the chance of sensitivity and you're only leaving it in for a minute, for most people, it shouldn't be a problem. In a leave in product, however, is exactly *not* how it should be used, and what increases the chances of an allergic reaction, or dryness after repeated use. Stay away from this especially if you have any issues like eczema or psoriasis. Cheap, poor quality lotion :/

I am in LOVE with this lotion. You cannot beat the price for the amount of product is in that gigantic bottle! When I went to buy it, I noticed it looked watery in the bottle, but thought maybe it was just a thinner consistency lotion. My best friend recommended it to me and couldn't say enough about it. Back when she first recommended it to me (several months ago) I immediately went out and got some. It was super runny and watery. I immediately asked her if that was normal. She was about out and had to get some not long after I first purchased it. Hers was watery as well. I tried to use it in its watery state... But it was to much of a chore and I gave up. A couple months later she text me saying she had just bought another bottle and it wasn't watery. So again, I went out and bought it. Most amazing, cheap lotion ever, when it's not watery of course! My advice to those thinking about purchasing this is to turn the bottle sideways and if it looks watery to you, pass on it, and keep checking back. That was the first thing I did upon buying for the second time was to check if it was watery.
