Normally I give a lot of thought to reviews before I buy a product I haven't tried before, but I'm so glad I didn't let them deter me. I normally use Gold Bond Healing lotion, but with the bad economy, I was looking for a comparable, but cheaper alternative.

I found out that St. Ives Intensive healing is recommended by Paula B., the Cosmetics Cop, & the price is nearly half the price of Gold Bond for 8 more ounces. With a recent sale on here, I decided to give it a go.

First off, the other reviews GROSSLY exaggerate the intensity of the smell! If you are expecting this to be a completely scent-free or if fragrances normally irritate your skin, than yes, you will be disappointed with this product. But I found the scent was pleasant, very light & goes away very quickly.

Secondly, this is a nice, thick moisturizer. It is just a little less thick than the Gold Bond Healing lotion, but it makes it much easier to pump out. (Anyone who has used the Gold Bond pump knows that the last 1/3 of the bottle will not pump out!) But it's not nearly as runny as Suave, Johnsons, or Vaseline brands & is a bit thicker than Olay, Aveeno, etc. It moisturizes very well & absorbs quickly.

So far I've been very impressed with this lotion & I'm glad I took the chance on it. If for some reason that changes, I will update my review.

I have used the Intensive Healing formula for several years. Prior to that I used a different St. Ives lotion until they altered the scent and made the scent too strong for my kids (they complained they didn't like the smell when I used it on myself). The Intensive Healing one was unscented, but pleasant smelling, so it worked for me. Now St. Ives added a fragrance to the Intensive Healing formula and 2 of my kids can't handle it. I guess I have to find a new brand. :-( Most brands' unscented lotions smell awful. St Ives had a good thing there with the unscented, yet not bad smelling, lotion and ruined it.

    I'm a fan of St. Ives lotions. The ones I've tried have worked well and absorbed quickly without residue. This works the same. I have dry legs, and this works well and seems to last all day. I have no complaints.

      Comments about St. Ives Body Lotion, Intensive Healing, 21 fl oz:

      I've been buying this for a while now and it's great! I use it on my hands every night before bed and it keeps my hands nice and soft year round. I get very dry, chapped hands in the winter if I don't use lotion and this nearly eliminates the problem w/ 1 use/ day (if I use it more, I'm good to go in the winter also)!

      I did notice the last time I bought it there was a light scent noted on the package, as some people indicate. It doesn't bother me and isn't really noticeable; I don't have any problems w/ scented lotions though. It's not greasy and absorbs pretty quickly. I also use it on legs/ feet before wearing shorts, etc or arms as needed. It's great!

        Comments about St. Ives Body Lotion, Intensive Healing, 21 fl oz:

        Although I have tried many body lotions like Bath and Body Works, Hempz, Jergens, Vasoline and more I don't find that any of them compare to Ives. During the winter my skin tends to get itchy and this is the only moisturizer that works well at relieving the itch and moisturizing my skin. It doesn't go on greasy or leave a shine. It absorbs quickly and I like that there isn't a scent so that if I apply it in the morning it won't interfere with whatever perfume I am wearing. Highly recommend.

          Very moisturizing without being greasy. Helps my skin stay soft even if I skip a day. The smell is light and pleasant but doesn't stick around very long. My favorite lotion in the entire St. Ives line.

          This is the only moisturizer that I can leave in the bathroom for everyone to use. My husband can't stand most products, but loves this one. Not greasy or smelly. The product works well. That said, I am constantly fighting that pump! It is a great idea to have one, but this one stops working before the product is half gone. I add water to the product and carry on trying to figure out how to keep it working. It drives me crazy! It is simply not a convenient container to use without the working pump. What a pain.

            Comments about St. Ives Body Lotion, Intensive Healing, 21 fl oz:

            I was looking for a good, inexpensive lotion and this was a Paula's Pick. For those familiar with Paula she strongly disapproves of any products with known irritants, including fragrance.

            Paula was right, this is a very nice budget lotion. It's hard to imagine people giving it one star just because of the smell but remember that reactions to odors are highly subjective. Both my husband and I find the fragrance to be a very light, pleasantly fruity scent that quickly dissipates and leaves no detectable odor on the skin. I tend to notice smells and definitely prefer an odor free environment and it doesn't bother me at all. If you are very hypersensitive to smells then you might not like it. Otherwise, it's worth giving it a try.

                  Very, very light fragrance...it does not stink (as other reviewers have referenced). This lotion works fabulous. And for anyone who cares it is a Paula's Pick. I love that it keeps my skin soft and moisturized. It is non greasy & I like that I can dress immediately after applying. I have used high end body moisturizers & this one ranks right up there with the best of them.
