The first time I put this product on my hands my boyfriends nose started working. He thought I smelled yummy! The scent is refreshing. It doesn't bother my allergies like almost every fragrance in the world.

My hands get pretty dry and my cuticles are always cracking from playing in the dirt...I garden, backpack, rock climb, etc. This lotion works great to help restore the moisture I lose. It works great on my itchy back after I get home from being out in the sun.

It's not too heavy or greasy. I love it!

I had previously written a glowing review of this product, however the company seems to have changed the scent. It is not awful in my opinion.

When I purchased some this last time, I failed to notice the "new fragrance" markings. Because of the new smell, this is going to a neighbor or in the trash.

The older product was wonderful, and had a very pleasant aroma. This new ones smells like some mixture of flowers and chemicals, and I for one think any almond that is left is overpowered by the other elements. I will not be purchasing this again.

I have very dry skin so this product is fantastic for me. It feels so nice on the skin. The fragrance is a delight but fades quickly.

    Comments about Desert Essence Organics Hand & Body Lotion, Almond, 8 fl oz:

    I am so happy I reordered this hand cream..... the formula has changed - it is now called 'sweet almond' and so the scent is more natural and smells more like almond - which is just terrific!

      Comments about Desert Essence Organics Hand & Body Lotion, Almond, 8 fl oz:

      The old formula was heavier, but just what I needed for dry skin, especially in the winter. I also don't care for the new odor--or the brown color!

      Comments about Desert Essence Organics Hand & Body Lotion, Almond, 8 fl oz:

      I am allergic to artificial fragrances, so I am always looking for something that does not smell like plastic and chemicals but contains only the basic fragrance chemicals or natural oils. I have zero problems with this product, and in fact I love it. I have to apply it a couple times a day, which is not really unreasonable. I will be a long-time user for sure.

        Comments about Desert Essence Organics Hand & Body Lotion, Almond, 8 fl oz:

        I have severe fragrance allergies, so finding a product that has a nice scent but without the artificial ingredients to make it is a real blessing. I love cherry-almond and almond scented items, but usually if I try them I get hives, wheeze, and end up smelling like cologne five minutes later anyway.

        I honestly don't care about vegan or organic or any of that, but it's hard to find even dishwasher soap without the work "Fragrance" in the ingredients, let alone something that smells so naturally good.

        This product will be around my house for as long as I can get it.

        Fragrance too strong

        Comments about Desert Essence Organics Hand & Body Lotion, Almond, 8 fl oz:

        The fragrance in this was so strong with the almond, I gave it away. And I usually love almond fragrance. Yuck.

          This is beautiful - smells wonderful, feels great (thick but not too thick or greasy) - and I am very picky about lotions and creams. I think the almond oil in it has even improved my nails. Highly recommended.
