This is just the best product I have ever used. It is so nourishing and moisturizing - without being heavy. It absorbs easily and smells DIVINE!!!!

This lotion is fantastic - it soaks straight into the skin and has this unique addictive fragrance that I just can get enough of. I use it on my babies as I know it is completely natural and safe and has no hidden ingredients in it!
Sweet and aromatic

Ive been looking for this kind of body lotion. Not only is it sweet and aromatic, it also does wonders for my skin. My skin feels so smooth. Will buy again and again.

I received a free sample of this lotion with my last order - what a treat! I managed to moisturise my entire body from head to toe with this tiny 5ml sample! A little goes a looooong way!
Smells great, is cruelty-free, vegan, not too runny, not sticky and really nourishes my dry, eczema-prone skin without irritation. Just wonderful.

Had to come review this divine product!
Very impressed with the consistency - not too thick or thin.
Love how it feels, absorbs and hydrates my skin.
But absolutely most in love with the smell!!

Got this as a gift from a friend (Masadi) and this is THE best body moisturizer EVER! I really never want to have to go without this lotion ever. I have really dry skin and this is the first lotion that just completely does it for me on all fronts - not oily, not runny, not sticky; just silky smooth with a lovely aroma - just perfect!!
Satisfied, but smell is slightly off-putting

Economical and nourishing enough in the warmer parts of the year. In winter I would prefer something a little more nourishing.
Do not like the smell too much, but its not overbearing. All in all quite satisfied with the product

This is the best natural body lotion Ive ever used. The satiny consistency spreads and absorbs like a dream and leaves my skin moisturised without being sticky. Good price, too!

Just got back from Namibia and bought this product there. Did wonders for my dry skin in the desert and smells delicious!
