Beauty Without Cruelty Hand and Body Lotion Wild Ylang Ylang -- 16 fl oz
Like a public restroom
Seriously. The label says "premium aroma-therapeutic wild ylang ylang..." And you're gonna love it...if you are a connoisseur of the varied scents of public restrooms. Even my husband said, "it smells like the stuff they use to clean bathrooms." I recall ylang-ylang as having a musky, earthy scent. This stuff has the cloying fragrance of florist lillies crossed with the public restroom smell, not unlike what I imagine the smell of a bathroom at a funeral home to be.
As for it's moisturizing properties, eh, its okay. It feels greasy on my hands for quite awhile after I use it and I don't find the moisture to last all day like my regular brand. And this just serves to remind me that when I find something I like, I should stick with it and stop looking for something better. I'll be going back to Alba Botanica Very Emollient Lotion - STAT.

love that its cruelty free and has good ingredients.
the smell of ylang ylang doesnt bother me but it could be a deal breaker for those that are more particular to scents. it's not a sweet or floral smell. ylang ylang smells more herbal maybe?

Best Body Lotion I've Ever Used
The best lotion I've ever used. Not greasy at all, absorbs well and has a mild scent which is nice for anyone that has difficulty with overly scented products.

I did not care for the smell of this product.

We have tried several natural lotions and really like this one. It is pretty much like any "normal" lotions without the SLS, parabens, or other nasty ingredients. The smell isn't the greatest, but not bad or lingering. Both my husband and I use it.
