I really love this product. It’s the best bodylotion i’ve used so far. My skin is very dry en this makes it so soft. Other bodylotions don’t help enough and make my skin itchy. I use it for a couple years now.

If only this were unscented, it would be a terrific body lotion - it sinks into the skin quickly, leaves it moisturized for a long time, and it's inexpensive. However, it has a maple tree scent which I really don't like, and it lingers on my skin for several hours. That's a problem when you want to wear perfume - how will the maple affect your fragrance? For that reason - and only that reason - I don't think I'll repurchase.

Great body lotion. It's very light and gets into the skin right away. I use it on my face also and I haven't had any breakouts. I am not a big fan of the smell though, so I don't think I will buy it again :(

i didnt gave 5 stars because of mineral oil it has in it..and the maple sap is one of the last on the list of ingridients but however is really nice..very silky and not oily..it sinks imediatley in the skin without leaving any residue and ive used it for 3 days (once a day)and my skin was incredibly dry with eczema patches and now is soft and nice.Also,the smell is not strong..subtle and nice.Is the best for winter and i see myself using for summer too

I've tried practically all the body moisturisers available in Boots (e.g. Vaseline, Dove, Johnson's, Neutrogena, Jergen's, Soap and Glory, The Sanctuary, St. Ive's) and this is definitely my number 1 daily moisturiser. My skin tends to be dry; nothing too horrendous or problematic but I do find I need to moisturise every day. This moisturises fantastically well for a lotion (only a body butter/oil could do better IMO). It even does a reasonable job on areas that usually need extra help like elbows and heels. It's also incredibly spreadable and sinks in very quickly.

It smells a little too sweet for my taste but this fades pretty quickly and it doesn't interfere with my perfume. The smell is nowhere near as strong as Garnier Hydalock.

It's a great price for the quality of the product and with offers I find I can get it for approx 5 for 400ml.

Packaging is functional: typical Garnier bright red plastic with a small flip cap.

Overall, highly recommended!

This is specific to the Garnier Body Intensive 7 days for dry skin. I have a nasty serious dry skin build up problem. I bought this and applied it to the affected areas when I got home and showered an hour or two later. IT ALL CAME OFF. SO pleased with this product. I feel SO soft after using it and it leaves my skin so soft. Smells good too! DEFINITE MUST HAVE.

If you are looking for a lotion that absorbs really quickly, you should try some of this. When I first tried this I thought, no way is this going to do anything... because it was thin and seemed to disappear into the skin so quickly. But it is actually very good! It definitely hydrates and soothes dry skin. I can't comment on how this goes for SUPER dry skin but it does very well for me. I love to use this after shaving my legs. I can dress straight after applying it too which is a plus. I hate that sticky feel you get from some lotions... And you know how with some lotions, you have to rub and rub to get rid of that white cream on top of your skin? You won't experience that with this Garnier lotion. I love the subtle sweet fragrance in this. It's just gorgeous. It's obviously a nod to the main ingredient - Maple Sap. Highly recommended.

i love this body moisturizer. i have really dry and often flaky skin after showering so i'ts very important that i use a cream.
this garnier bodyrepair is the best drugstore cream i have found so far! it's very thick and moisturizing but does not leave a greasy feeling at all. it also sink in very fast and the scent is really nice and not too heavy. i will definitely repurchase this product once i finished the bottle. highly recommended for sensitive and dry skin!

Decent product!
This lotion moisturizes really well compared to other products in the price range. It didn't have that "omg this makes my skin feel totally different" effect I was hoping for though. I like it as a basic body lotion, but last winter which was ridiculously cold, it just didn't have a chance. And it doesn't keep its' promise of moisturizing for 24 hours.
The smell is okay, nothing exciting, nothing annoying.
Of course the price is awesome and I will probably repurchase it for everyday use in the spring time now, since it does a good job leaving the skin feel refreshed and tight (in the good way).

Got this as it seemed to have some pretty decent reviews, and I've used the firming one before which I found good. I was pleasantly surprised to see it at NZ$3.50 a bottle on special at the supermarket (it's normally between NZ$10 and NZ$15).
It moisturises quite well, sinks in pretty fast, and a little goes a long way. I'm about halfway through a bottle that I bought a couple of months ago, and that's using it twice a day, on legs and arms (and underarms after shaving). Great for post-shaving on the ol' legs as it doesn't irritate and gets rid of that awful dino-skin you can get from soap.
My only slight problem with it would be the lid - it's probably great for travel as it doesn't come open, but it's also exceedingly hard to open when you actually want to use it! I don't think this is due to the new bottle design as I'm pretty sure the cap is the same. But that's not really a big deal.
Smells nice, unoffensive, not strong.
I've used much more expensive moisturisers which were less effective. This is a great staple for winter.
