Favorite body lotion

Absorbs completely without that greasy residue feeling. I like to add e.o. for a unique scent.

Too thin for my liking and didn't leave my skin moisturized

Posted   by Melissa from SANTA BARBARA, California

This lotion is very thin and watery. It didn't leave me feeling moisturized at all. It doesn't even smell that great. I do love the Alaffia body wash, but will skip the body lotion from here forward

Light sweet accent

Posted   by Shelly from OMAHA, Nebraska
Sure, it's not like taking a whiff out of a bottle of vanilla extract but the scent is light and sweet - exactly what I wanted! Not too thick or too thin either, good for everyday moisture.

Watery; bad for hands, feet; good for face, body

Posted   by C. from Washington
I bought this at a local store in desperation because we were out of all kinds of moisturizers. We thought this huge bottle of product with nice ingredients would serve as both body and hand lotion, but it is no good for hands...or feet...or elbows. It absorbs VERY quickly--almost too quickly!--and does not seem to have much moisturizing effect unless I use A TON. By the time I am done applying this product to my entire body, my hands do feel quite soft, but the feeling does not last. I am seeing a bit of improvement in my crispy elbows, but that could be due to my recent dietary changes. This Alaffia lotion does exactly nothing for my heels; I've been suffering from even drier feet than usual since I got this product. I love the vanilla scent and the quick absorption, but I daresay this is the most pointless moisturizer I have ever used. Even so, I might get it again via Thrive, because the price is amazing, and the product DOES work on most of my body. I just still need a very good moisturizer for the driest parts of me. If you wash a lot of dishes, fold a lot of laundry, and frequently wash your hands, you will definitely need something better.

I've used their Shea butter, their African black soap, and both were phenomenal products. This lotion, however, sucks. It feels too water, doesn't moisturize AT ALL, and was honestly a waste due to how terrible it is and how big the bottle is.
