    I really like this thick cream, but it has one significant draw back described below.

    It does a fabulous job mouisturizing dry skin! The best very rich cream I've found. It is a little thinner/lighter in consistency than many body butters, so it spreads and abosorbs more easily. Still it is quite heavy, and I tend to use it on very dry spots in winter (eg. hands) and to moisturize after shaving my legs. It does a great job calming and moisturizing skin after shaving. In addition, it smells great, which is a big part of what keeps me going back. The smell is not too sweet or fruity. it is rich, nutty, a bit caramely, and sensual.

    HOWEVER: The product seems to be very inconsistent. I've been buying it for years and I occasionally get versions where the product smells different (worse!) and has a different texture. At first I thought it had been reformulated, but then I tried it again and it was back to its wonderful original state. Next jar: smelled weird. Note, these off-smelling ones do not smell rancid -- like they're old. It's as if they got the frangance mix wrong or the ingredients vary. So I think that the reviewers who state it smells sickly sweet like candy have gotten a bad batch.

    If it weren't for this inconsistency I would easily give it 5 stars. So I still suggest giving it a try!

    I used to love this cream, but now they added a caramel scent and the scent is overwhelming and unpleasant. It used to have a very nice, light nut smell, and now it has that artificial candy smell. I was disappointed, because this was a favorite of ours.

        This cream moisturizes well and lasts. The smell is a combo of caramel and chemicals. I don't like it but I will be trying the other fragrance to see if it's better. The price is a little hefty for only 6.5 oz. though.

          This used to be one of my favorite products. They have changed the texture of the cream. It is now a thinner and more oily feeling body cream. There is currently very little smell. Very disappointed. I loved this body cream before.

              This is my favorite body cream - it's great for dry skin, but it's not a super oily or heavy lotion. Nice and thick and I love the smell. Also, because it comes in a jar, it's easy to get every last drop.

                I love how this smells! The cream is moisturizing and when I wear it, people tell me that I smell like chocolate. (Kind of funny, actually.)

                I love this stuff. I use it for special occasions.

                  This lotion smells like Hawaii. My sensitive skin and allergies aren't bothered by the strong scent. Better yet, my skin stays silky and scented for hours.

                    I love this creamy, rich, moisturizing butter. I use the Mango and love the smell. Decided to try the nut this time. Same great body butter, but smells like carmel a little too strong. I will still use it, but will order the Mango again in the future. I love to use this after my shower, especially on my back which gets itchy from too hot showers. It works great!!!

                      I use this body butter when I need some extra moisture. I live in the desert and my skin can get really dry during the winter and hot summer months. I love this product because it makes your skin look awesome and takes away any sign of dryness! I also love the way it makes my tattoos' "pop" more so than my regular lotion. The scent is good, but not really MY favorite, although I always get compliments on the scent when I wear the body butter- the last comment was a woman asking me what I put on to smell like cupcakes!

                        Because I have frequent hay fever, I am almost constantly wiping my nose (not pretty!) At the end of the day, the skin under and around my nose is red and irritated. I put this cream on that area each night, and when I wake up, the skin is soft and comfortable. I also bring it on road trips in place of my regular facial moisturizer, with great results. My daughter uses this product on her eczema, and it really helps.
