Everyday Shea Moisturizing Body Lotion Vanilla -- 32 fl oz
Disgusting scent - nice texture
I really really REALLY wanted to like this lotion, and yet, I ended up giving an entire bottle minus one single application away (to someone who is probably to polite to refuse a gift and has likely thrown it away). I am a very frugal person, I buy just what I need and use it all up. Not this stuff.
I hated essentially throwing away money, but the vanilla scent is sickening and cloying. It doesn't smell like real vanilla, it smells like candy vanilla with some kind of stinky rank undertones, as if the oils have gone rancid - though I checked other bottles at a local store, which I should have done before buying this one, and the smell is the same, so I don't believe it's a matter of freshness.
If it didn't smell so bad, it would be great. It feels silky and absorbs quickly, it left my hands soft for the 15 minutes before I had to wash off the stink.

I have used several bottles of this over the last year. Mine always smelled very lightly of vanilla, always good, never anything bad. I noticed when my home is cooler (winter) the lotion was thicker, when my home was warmer (summer) the lotion was thinner. This is very typical of lotion made with good quality natural oils and butters. When the lotion seems thicker than I like it, I add some alow vera juice to make it the perfect thickness for me. As for me and my family - we are sticking with this. Good quality and a price that can't be beat.

good moisturizer bad scent
this lotion works well IF you can stand the smell. Smells like something spoiled in it. It is awful!! Will try to pass it on to someone that can stand the smell and will try another scent and hope it is better!

Vanilla scent smells awful!
I purchased this produce for the vanilla scent. This could be a nice moisturizing lotion but the vanilla scent was awful! I couldn't get past the awful scent and hope to give it away to someone who doesn't care about the scent! Because of this reason, I would not purchase this product again.

Great vanilla smell
Good light lotion, nice for summer when you need something but nothing too heavy and thick.
