I was not sure if this would really be moisturizing or if it would stay moisturizing, for me some lotions are not effective BUT this is very moisturizing and it is long lasting. It is quick absorbing but not dry and tight feeling at all!. I used this at night on my face and body and I was so happy with the immediate results of soft skin and a feeling of silkiness! I have an area of eczema on my right hand and I experienced no irritation after putting the lotion on here. That is nice to know. I didn't smell any scent at all. So if you are worried about that you shouldn't have to worry any longer. I had the same soft moisturized skin and body the next morning, I was not ashy or dry or a tight feeling. Just beautiful looking and feeling skin!Thank you so much for helping me stay moisturized and beautiful in this winter season! I received this lotion FREE from Influenster to review but the opinions expressed are honest and all mine.
