Pros: wonderful smell

Cons: didn't do much for my skin

This was very watery and just didn't work well although the smell was nice. Also, this product contains borax (sodium borate) natural or not a toxin is a toxin and one of the reasons i use natural products is to get away from the toxic chemicals in conventional products, so using this product is counter productive to me.

 

Borax is natural, but that does not mean it is automatically safer for you or for 'the environment' than man-made chemicals. Although plants need boron, too much of it will kill them, so borax can be used as an herbicide. Borax may also be used to kill roaches, ants, and fleas. In fact, it is also toxic to people. Signs of chronic toxic exposure include red and peeling skin, seizures, and kidney failure. The estimated lethal dose (ingested) for adults is 15-20 grams; less than 5 grams can kill a child or pet. For this reason, borax should not be used around food. More commonly, borax is associated with skin, eye, or respiratory irritation. It is also important to point out that exposure to borax may impair fertility or cause damage to an unborn child.
 

Borax is a developemental toxin, carcinagen, neurotoxin, endocrine disruptor and linked to other parts of the body/organs (including affects on the brain) as a toxin as well as causing respitory and skin irritation.

Pros: works good

Cons: smells a little funny, a little expensive

I picked this up to heal my hands, and it did it's job.  It also works pretty well on my legs.  Really, aside from the high price, the only complaint I have is the smell.  I don't care much for it, but I can live with it enough to use it.  I may use a different brand the next time I buy lotion.

Pros: It left my skin glistening.

Cons: You have to shake before applying.

I really like this product when I remembered to shake it first. (If you forget to shake it, it comes out watery). It left my skin feeling smoothe and actually glistening. I liked the product. Burt's Bees Products are almost always worth the money.

Pros: Mostly natural

Cons: Kinda watered down moisturizer

I find this lotion to feel oddly watery. When you rub it into your skin, it's very slippery feeling. It's not greasy at all, but not very moisturizing either. It leaves my hands feeling a little sticky/coated.

It has a kind of nice smell, almost coconut-y, that a lot of people probably like. But I also think it smells kind of synthetic/chemically. Smell in the store before you buy.

Pros: Nice scent, nice feel.

Cons: Not inexpensive...

This "Milk & Honey" body lotion has a very nice scent, goes on nice, and does not feel greasy. Is 98.25% natural... would like that to be 100%, but better than most lotions in that sense. Whole family has taken to it!
