    I try a lot of products until I find something I love, and then I usually stick with that product. That's what has happened with this hand and body lotion, which I never want to be without.

    The first thing that attracted me was the delicious Vanilla Chai scent, which initially is strong, but quickly fades to a subtle note as the moisturizer sinks into your skin. I wear a perfume I love, and it's important for my products to have an enjoyable fragrance but still does not compete with my overall preferred scent. I happen to think the Vanilla Chai is an excellent and subtle complement to my perfume (Michael Kors for Women, if you are wondering), but I'm fairly certain the only people who pick up on it as an underlying scent are myself and those who know me extraordinarily well.

    The most important thing, however, is for a lotion to effectively moisturize, which this absolutely does. It softens my skin beautifully, even those tricky rough spots like elbows. It also absorbs quickly which is especially important when you are short on time or getting ready for work in the morning. Coupled with an excellent price and the convenience of having it delivered to my door, it's everything I could want in a hand and body lotion.

    I noticed that it had a slightly new name when I ordered it, but I didn't notice that it said "new fragrance." The previous fragrance was heavenly, but this is definitely not. I smell no vanilla at all, and comparing this tube with my old one, vanilla is far down this list whereas it was previously second. It smells simply of cloves, allspice, or something along those lines to me. The new formula is lighter and silkier, but I'm very sad over losing my all-time favorite fragrance. The manufacturer offered no customer service incentive to me either, despite being a longtime buyer. I'm sadly disappointed in every way except for the nice texture of the lotion.

      Comments about Desert Essence Organics Hand & Body Lotion, Spicy Vanilla Chai, 8 fl oz:

      First time using this brand, it is comparable to Bath and Body Works body creams when it comes to performance. Which is great for me because, I was looking to find an equivalent or better cream/lotion (namely Aspen Caramel Woods by BBW). Dessert Essence is better priced, better ingredients, but not better in smell. I'm in looooove with Aspen Caramel Woods scent, but it was discontinued and again the ingredients aren't great. The Spicey Vanilla Chai smells like Hot Tamales candy kinda, I don't like it, and it fades soon after application. I plan to try other fragrances In sha Allah.

        This lotion absorbs quickly, moisturizes well, and smells exactly like Vanilla Chai. The scent lasts all day, it's such a delicious and comforting fragrance. Just ordered another backup so I don't run out. This will definitely become a staple in my beauty regimen. Absolutely recommend!

                  Loved the smell, but it's pretty expensive for a hand cream. It works...much like any other hand cream would. I'd rather drink the tea and get antioxidants and use unscented hand cream!

                  Very good moisturizer, but the smell is way too strong. It smells very strongly like cloves and a kind of fake sweet vanilla smell. way too overpowering. would not use this around other people, but is ok to use before bed.

                      It does a decent job of moisturizing, but the smell is great. If you like the spicy chai and warm vanilla scents, then this lotion is a must.
