As happens so often, companies change good, old, original products and leave loyal customers disappointed and having to shop around to replace a product they have loved for many years. I, too, was a loyal Jergens customer for at least 30 years, most of my life. Everyone knew me for the scent. It was great to use when I knitted because it was soft, but not greasy. Like others I thought this was a packaging change, but I sadly agree the new formula is nasty. It feels like Crisco, the scent doesn't last and I have to rub my hands on a towel after application. I have a big bottle that I hate using. Can you please bring back the old formula and market it as "Classic" or something? I feel tricked and mislead by the new bottle. Making new products is OK, but please don't discontinue an oldie but goodie in the process.

I have used the original lotion for 50 years as my mom, and grandmother before daughter and granddaughter's used it as well. Family tradition you could say and not only am I disappointed as well as my entire female family tree, we are honestly sad! This was a fantastic lotion and also a connection we shared down thru the years (I am sure many will find this silly) but it is true. Like the end of something:( I know it is only lotion but we would really like the option to buy the REAL Original lotion! If we wanted greasy we would have been buying other lotions! Unfortunately, the new lotion is a deal breaker for all of us! We gave it a try and none of us liked it, the original left no greasy feel and soaked in as you need it too...Sometimes change is not needed and this is one of those cases! Whatever CEO or Marketing person thought this was smart should really rethink their research company! Rant over now to focus on finding a new lotion :(

I'm not sure why people are saying this is sticky and does not absorb or it smells weird. I've been using it for a few weeks and find it sinks into my skin quickly and the smell reminds me of my mother and grandmother as both used the old formula. I normally use rather expensive lotions. But on a whim of nostalgia I bought this at the grocery store. I find this moisturizes and performs like the more expensive brands. I like that the scent is mild and neutral so it does not interfere with my perfume. One scent for deodorant, one for lotion, one for perfume is too much. But this is subtlety sented. On a daily basis I use Jergens.

I've been using Jergens original cherry-almond moisturizer for well over 40 years. Even my dermatologist has always commented that my skin is in better condition than any of his other 60-something patients. Unfortunately, you have now changed this wonderful product, and it does not work nearly as well as the original. My skin no longer feels as nice as it did, and I am unfortunately now on the hunt for a different brand of lotion. Why do so many manufacturers today think they need to change a product that works perfectly, and is loved by so many, just for change's sake? I have no problem with new products being offered for those who may want to try them, but please don't discard the products that people love!

I'm one of those users who has been loving this brand just about my whole life. Its the lotion that reminds me of my grandmother, which shows its been great for generations. HOWEVER, this "new" original isn't the same. The smell is faint and slightly distasteful while the lotion can tend to leave you feeling greasy. I would love for Jergens to bring back the true Original Scent!

I have used the Original Scent for over 20 years. I remember the older version as having a longer lasting cherry almond scent. The scent used to last all day,but now I only smell it when the bottle is first opened after purchasing it, then the scent is very faint if not at all. The thickness of the lotion has also changed. I still love this more than any other brand that I have tried because it is not greasy, does not feel sticky after applying and I can apply it to my face as well as my body. I apply it every day after I shower and after washing my hands throughout the day.

Jergens Original Scent moisturizer was a part of my childhood! When I was sick as a child my father used to bring me suprises, usually little "beauty/make up kits" and they always included a little white bottle (with a black top) of Jergens. Over the years I strayed once or twice to other moisturizers but have always gone back to the original Jergens. When I finally ran through my supply and bought more I was so shocked and disappointed with the product!!! The cherry almond scent doesn't last and it's very sticky. I don't know what they did, but I want the original original back!!

Jergens has been a favorite of mine for most of my life, and the Original Scent variety is my most favoritest. It smells so delicious! This lotion is particularly soft and silky, and really does well as a lubricant. I can't think of anything more relaxing and enjoyable than a Jergens massage!

I have not bought Jergens in a while, but I did buy your new beige bottle, and noticed right away that the scent was not as nice as it was when I was younger. It does seem to moisturize good, though. Like some of the reviews, I would like some things to stay the same, such as Jergens original hand lotion.

I have been using the original Jergens for as long as I can remember and I have always loved it until the formula recently changed. I still like it but I find that after rubbing it in for just a seconds, it becomes watery. I hate that. I also wish the scent was as long lasting as it used to be. I will still use this until I find something better or they change the formula back to how it used to be.

So excited to see the "Original Scent" BUT it's not the same. For one, the scent is quite faint and doesn't last. Maybe that's because the chemicals today are not the same as back in the 1960's when I fell in love with Jergens. Oh well, it's still my favorite brand of hand lotion and a little Cherry Almond is better than no Cherry Almond

I, like so many others, love the scent of Jergens Original - but the scent doesn't last long at all now - why? Also, it doesn't "feel" the same on my skin. For all of those in the 50+ age range who LOVE orginal Jergens, please do go back to the original "recipe" and make it the way it was meant to be made! I promise lots and lots of sales - even go back and revive the original bottle style - that would be wonderful!!!

Too Greasy

The cherry-almond scent fades too quickly. I prefer the fragrance of the original Jergens lotion, that I used since childhood. This "new" formula is greasy; I could get the same effect by putting olive oil or lard on my skin. I quickly washed it off and threw the rest of the bottle in the trash. Please bring back the old formula with the old scent; it was a winner.

I have been using Jergens original since I can remember. My grandmother always had it at her house. Though I have used lotions in every price range I always have this lotion on hand because the fragrance is part of my life. Would give it 5 stars if Jergens would add Shea butter or other natural moisture but I would be afraid it may change the fragrance.

I have used Jergens original scent for over 45 years. It is the only lotion that does not leave my hands feeling greasy, or make me want to wash it off after applying. It's a great moisturizer. Plus, I love the cherry almond scent.

I've used Jergens Original Scent since I was a little girl. My Mom used it all of her life to. At one time, before all the hundreds of other lotions on the market this was one of the few. Its great lotion and the smell is wonderful. It was the first smell like this on the market - many try to duplicate it but nothing smells as good as Jergens.

I have used this lotion for 30+ years, it is the best lotion out there. I have tried others and nothing compares. I put on in the morning and my skin is moisturized all day. Has kept my tattoos looking amazing even after 20 yrs their colors pop.

I bought this recently and find that wonderful smell I remember using as a child. I have no complaints about this product. After using the new Wet lotion in the shower I usually wait about an hour and use some of this on my legs and arms. I get told many times how soft my body is!
