Dr. Bronner's Magic Organic Lotion Orange Lavender -- 8 fl oz
Another Dr. Bronner's product -- a winner!
Funny.. I added this product to get to the Free Shipping total in my cart, and trusting this brand and it being winter, how could I go wrong with lotion for my poor, hard-working hands?
None of the varieties leapt out at me when it was time to choose which "flavor" to order, but I decided the odd-sounding combination of orange and lavender was worth the chance.
It <<is>>an odd combination, but these two scents manage to play well together. It will probably never set the world on fire, but I don't care about that. In fact, normally, I use only unscented lotions, but what the heck? I was in the mood to experiment.
Amazingly, the intensity of the scent is about a 6 or 7 on a scale of 1 - 10 when you first apply it, but the scent rapidly dissipates after application... however, it is clear upon inspection of my hand that lotion has been applied-- no tell-tale signs of dry skin, or tightness and tingling/burning.
In other words, the lotion remains, but the scent does not. This could be a positive for you, or if you are looking for something that retains a scent, then this would be a negative for you.

I like Dr. Bronner's Liquid soap but this lotion definitely didn't have a positive effect! A few minutes after applying it became sticky and started peeling off!!!

Bronners products are excellent
I have used this lotion for years and it is one of my favorites. It absorbs easily and is not heavy or greasy. Some people don't like the slight stinging sensation from the citrus, especially after shaving, however it is so minor and temporary, I find the benefits signficantly outweight this aspect. It has everything in it to keep the skin healthy. And is EXCELLENT for any puffiness under the eyes in the morning. It will take that away and tighten it instantly. I love this product!!!

good lotion so far
I've used Dr. Bronner's Magical Soap since the 80's and this was the first time I'm using the lotion. The scent is strong but works for me because I use this after swimming. The lotion is thin and the verdict is still out as to how affectively it will moisturize in the winter.
