Disappointed
 July 3, 2013
"I've used Desert Essence Almond lotion and the jojoba shampoo & cream rinse with success. I looked forward to using a shea butter from D.E., but this formula is a disappointment. I was going to send it back, but the shipping was equal to the cost of this tube (on sale), so I'll use it on my feet at night.
There was a strong, unappealing smell that didn't go away as the day went on. I think another reviewer stated as much. What a surprise...I'm not one to be picky about scents of any lotion, but this is one I didn't look forward to putting on one more time.
Also, the texture was heavy, and it didn't absorb completely into the skin. Perhaps this is the nature of Shea butter, but it didn't appeal to me. I could feel...and smell...it on me until the next shower. Ugh."

"Overall was satisified with this product although I was expecting the "creme" would be a bit thicker, but it did absorb well. I use it after I get out of the shower especially on my legs. Wasn't too hot on the scent. not sure I would purchase again due to not really liking the scent, however good quality for the price."

"More of a lotion than a cream, which was disappointing because I was looking for something thick containing shea butter for my dry hands, heels, etc. But as a lotion, it's very nice."
