I gave away my lotion. It was too heavy on the Cardamom. I could not make out the Grapefruit at all and this was what I was hoping for. I like to be able to smell the Grapefruit first with just a hint of the Cardamom. The lotion itself was lovely, but I could not continue to use this because of the scent even after a few hours.
If you are looking for a lotion with more Grapefruit and a light hint of spice, this is not for you.
I wrote a similar review for the Ginger-Bergamot lotion but wanted to do justice to this amazing scent too! I have mostly good skin Spring-Summer but when Fall comes, every part of me becomes dry, cracked, itchy, and red, even waking me up in the middle of the night scratching furiously because my legs are so dry! (And the amount of hand-washing we've all been doing since COVID does not help....important, but not skin-soothing by any means!) All that said, this lotion quite truly changed my life. It smells great (and the scent is not overpowering), absorbs quickly enough for me to get into bed all slathered up after a shower and it doesn't get on my sheets, and i haven't had eczema or psoriasis on my legs or hands since I started using it! MAGIC! I live in New England so while I typically try to "shop local", this is one product I buy in bulk from afar because it is that good. And finally nearing into spring/summer again, this is my go-to scent!
I keep this lotion on my desk during the work day because I can put some on my hands and smell the amazing cardamom smell when things are stressful and I just want some calm happy lotion time. This is my 2nd bottle because the smell is literally the most delicious. Yes, it's more expensive than generic lotion but the smell and natural ingredients make it worth it IMHO.
The lotion is awesome.
Who knew grapefruit and cardamon pair well together???? Shockingly they do. The combination gives off a lovely chocolate smell, which is crazy! Of course the texture is smooth and feels luxe.
