Most lotions only seem to soften my hands, but its very temporary, and in the long run they dry my hands even more. Watkins is the first lotion I've found in a long time that actually helps heal the dryness, no matter what I've gotten my hands into. In addition, Watkins hand lotion doesn't have any nasty ingredients. I'm definitely a convert. Besides, the "lemon cream" scent is fun.

I like the JR Watkins line, and this hand cream smells nice and is certainly moisturizing. However, I found it too thick to use by the sink, where I like to apply it each time I have my hands in detergent. It doesn't absorb well or quickly enough to use this way.

    Only negative is that I wish it had a "pump" applicator rather than the "flip top" for ease of use.

        Comments about J.R. Watkins Hand and Body Lotion, Lemon Cream, 11 fl oz:

        I am sensitive to fragrance.Some can give me an instant headache.
        I prefer natural scents like Lemon, Rosemary and Peppermint.
        This has a Lemon pie smell. I wasn't sure if I liked it when i first smelled it.
        When I put it on I do enjoy the fragrance. It does not linger too long. Just enough.
        It is not sticky or greasy! It is a light moisturizer. I use it before the gym. Your skin won't feel overheated. Your skin will be able to breathe!

        Comments about J.R. Watkins Hand and Body Lotion, Lemon Cream, 11 fl oz:

        When you first put in on it smells like a lotion but once it absorbs into your skin that's when you notice the lemon smell. It works well with my body chemistry and every time I wear it I always get great reviews. It doesn't seem to keep my skin moisten all day. I probably apply it 3 times a day on my arms. It's a great alternative to perfumes, it's not so over powering. It's very feminine.

        Comments about J.R. Watkins Hand and Body Lotion, Lemon Cream, 11 fl oz:

        For a product this rich, it absorbs quite quickly. Really nice. The only minus, for me, is the scent. Others like it. To me, it smells a bit like the lemon maalox. Kind of like a lemon cupcake...maybe even some coconut essence in there/ if this appeals to you, you might just love ths stuff. I am using the bottle I bought, but will not buy again.

        Very Disappointed

          Cons

          • Bad Smell

            Comments about J.R. Watkins Hand and Body Lotion, Lemon Cream, 11 fl oz:

            I love J.R. Watkins' products and was expecting this to be terrific. First, there is the smell. Lemon cream? I think not. Unless this bottle is rancid, which might have affected the smell, there is something seriously wrong with the fragrance. It is not just a case of not liking it, it makes me gag to smell it and a friend literally was sniffing the air and asking what the odor was--and not in a good way. There is no real "lemon" smell just the a weird, rancid cotton-candy-like odor. (Smells like a burnt creme brulee-- Sugary but sickening, not pleasant.)

            If you are looking for a lemon smell in any way, shape or form, this is not it. (Yes, I read the reviews. Clearly, scent is subjective. But I own a number of lemon products from other companies and they smell like lemon.)

            Then there is the issue of its texture. It just feels heavy and greasy, no mater how little I use. Your hands will feel soft, but they'll also feel icky.

            Finally, it made me itchy.

            FYI: Over the years, I've used lots of budget and more expensive brands of hand cream. On a scale of 1 to 10, this hand/body lotion rates a "0". I do wish manufacturers offered samples (I'd pay $1 rather than what I paid for this bottle, which will now be tossed as I would not give this as a gift to anyone else.)

            Should have stuck with the Williams Sonoma Meyer lemon line of products. Not cheap, but fabulous fragrance and everything feels great on one's hands.

              Watkins Lemon Cream is my favorite scented lotion EVER, and I have used many lovely (and much more expensive) products! It is paraben-free and all-natural, which is really important to me.
              I slather it on after a shower and enjoy richly moisturized skin and it's delicious Lemon Cream fragrance all day!

                It's perfectly serviceable as a lightweight, cost-effective moisturizer that I don't mind keeping on my desk at work for quick applications. It's not really rich enough for my ultra-dry skin, but I adore the scent - my hands smell like PIE!
