I usually use lotions on the kiddies when they are fresh out of the bath or as an in-between bath refresher if their skin needs an extra "drink". Diva R's skin usually needs an extra boost or a generous coat initially because her skin is more prone to dryness. So upon first scent i was kind of un sure about the fragrance but as i put two and two together i initially chose the unscented lotion because i didnt want a huge scent since Diva R is sensitive to some overpowering aromas. I noticed a oatmealish and flowery fragrance slightly present. This lotions texture was kind of more liquidy than what were used to but were always up for new challenges and experiences.
I applied this after the kids got out of the bath (used this for a few weeks consistently after we got it) just as any other lotion. The goal was to acheive nice moisturizing without having to dump the wholebottle in one use. I made sure to apply it generously to Diva R's skin and i noticed right away a shine and the difference from the skin feel that had the lotion applied and the skin which didn't as of yet was very clear! I could feel the moisture setting in and i could visually see the difference. I did have to use about 2 quarter sized amounts for Diva R, as because it is so liquidy i had to evenly spread it. the application wasn't super easy but it wasn't difficult either. I did note a difference when applying this to dry skin versus wet skin. I preferred to apply this only to her wet skin s the results were better and less product had to be used. I am still unsure about the smell i feel as if i should have got a fragranced one... Just to reiterate, this is a HAND and body lotion so by the first word being hand i assume that it is more so made for being a hand lotion.
As for Little Bro Z he doesn't really have dryer areas on his body so i just applied the lotion as normal and i used just under the amount as i did on Diva R. I like the more smoother application that was presented on Little Bro Z. Id say total i used 1/15th of the bottle on both kids for the first application total. I liked the lotion on his wet skin also, dry skin made it more difficult to spread. This is a sample size also FYI. I must say that this lotion is very liquidy and because of that it takes a decent amount to cover but it spreads far and it has a visual moisture to it.
If i let it sit upright for a few days the oils will float to the top :) Which is a sign of happiness for me since i know now what that means. There was no shelf life on these either in particular so the products are expected to last a while even though there are no harsh chemicals inside to preserve the life.
I wish i would have grabbed some of the creamier or butter like lotions to try! Those are more up our alley as i am a texture and scent person BUT overall i had a blessed experience and there are so many more products to choose from i don't even know where to start.
