I love this lotion. It gets absorbed in a few seconds and keeps my skin hydrated for a long time. I tend to get small pimples and whiteheads on my chest area and on my back if I use heavy moisturising formulas. But this didn't cause any trouble. When the weather is really cold and dry, I have to apply it twice. Otherwise slathering once after the bath is good for my normal skin. It has a very soothing, calming lavender scent and the scent doesn't linger for long. As with all L'Occitane products little goes a long way. 250 ml is a really nice amount of product. I would recommend this to normal to oily body skin persons. Very dry skin will probably need a heavy moisturising cream or lotion. Also, this is a very nice summer lotion. This is paraben free and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I apply it as a hand lotion too and two three drops keep my hands very soft.
