Nubian Heritage Body Lotion Honey and Black Seed -- 13 fl oz
5-star product, 2-star packaging
This is my new favorite body moisturizer. The scent is subtle but definitely present. Not cloying or overly perfumey. It's really thick and rich, much more like a body butter than a lotion, which is exactly why I love it. It absorbed quickly, and my skin felt so soft and moisturized.
What I don't like is the bottle. This product is way too thick to be in a rigid lotion bottle like this. I found it difficult to squeeze out the lotion, even upon first opening it, which is a little ridiculous. If this were in a flexible tube or a tub from which it would be easy to dispense, this would be a 5-star review, but I have to deduct a star for packaging that makes accessing the product frustratingly difficult. (I will probably be using a knife soon to saw the bottle open and transfer the lotion to a more easily accessed tub.)
While I hope they change the packaging (and not the formulation!), I will still continue to buy this product. It's wonderful.

Luxurious texture, overwhelming scent.
I love the feel of this cream but couldn't handle the scent. Gave it to a friend who loved it, though. Wish they had an unscented version, because the ingredients are wonderful.

Love the Honey and Black Seed
I have the Honey and Black Seed fragrance and really love it. It's thick and works to keep my skin healthy and hydrated, I really enjoy the fragrance (and I usually don't like products with fragrance). The product doesn't have any horrible ingredients, so its a win-win. The only negative is that the lotion is so thick it takes a bit of work to get out of the bottle sometimes.

Amazing smell, but bad bottle
I love the smell, it is simply amazing. Everybody ask me what I smell like, even it is not strong and actually do not last long I think. So you are you smell sensitive it is not harsh.
The only big issue about it, that I just can not make it out from the bottle. I have to open it and grab it from the inside with fingers while left overnight upside down. Actually it does not help much ether. Shake it down!
But, it moistures for long and soak into the skin fast enough and it is good for winter time.
So I think I would buy it again.

Excellent lotion, lovely scent
This lotion is very thick, but quickly soaks into the skin and lasts all day. The scent is subtle and delicious. My dog always wants to lick it off of my hands!
