You get a bunch of lotion for the price and its a good lotion. I use it straight out of the shower. Its hydrating and sinks in fast. I wasn't in love with the extreme Shea scent at first but its grown on me after continued use. I will repurchase as its a great basic lotion that works and doesn't cause any allergic reactions. Also the Shea smell dissipates fast so it doesn't react with my perfume which I am thankful for.

Great Product. Not greasy and moisturizes very well. The Shea smell may be a bit strong for some but I don't mind it at all and it doesn't linger (my daughter doesn't like it). I ordered the lavender by mistake last time and the smell of the vanilla lotion is much better.

I have used the Lavender scented Alaffia lotion, which is much nicer than the vanilla. I don't know why, but the vanilla makes me itchy. Not sure if I'm sensitive to one of the ingredients, or just doesn't moisturize as well. A lot of other reviews comment on the runniness, I don't find it runny, but its definitely not thick like a body butter. Spreads easily, soaks in well. The vanilla smells weird, kinda fake.

I've been searching for a great body lotion for a couple of years now. I read the review about this one and ordered it. Overall it is a good lotion, it smells nice, it's made with natural ingredients and it's whole trade. However, it is too light for my dry skin so I will continue my search for a great natural everyday lotion.

This lotions spreads well, although I would prefer if it was less runny. It smells strongly of shea and you can only catch a hint of the vanilla mint fragrance, this didn't bother me though because I don't mind the smell of unrefined shea butter. As someone with pretty dry skin, I found this to be a good daily lotion and it wasn't too heavy for summer. I'm not sure what it's like in the winter but if it is too light then I could just add in some castor or coconut oil when I apply it.

Very nice moisturizer with light scent that is more shea butter than vanilla in fragrance. I don't think it would be sufficient for very dry skin or in the winter as it is quite a light moisturizer - better for spring and summer. Very good for sensitive skin and kids as well.
