Since this is a spray on lotion, the lotion needs to be thinner. If the bottle is tipped or shaken, you can hear the lotion moving around inside. It sprays out of the bottle easily and though it is thinner than other lotions it still stays put where you spray it (unless you spray several times in one spot). The bottle does need to be held up right for it to work best. Once sprayed on, the lotion spreads and absorbs beautifully. The skin feels soft and smooth after application with no sticky or greasy residue.
The smell is like a raspberry milkshake. It is sweet and fruity with a lovely thick milkshake scent. The raspberry is nice and tart. The scent is nice and subtle and has a creaminess to it. On first sniff, it reminded me of a strawberry milkshake, though I knew that wasn't quite right. The scent is soft enough that other lotions or perfumes easily cover it unless you are sniffing right at skin level.
This lotion feels amazingly smooth on the skin. I love how it sprays on thin so that it is easy to spread all over and leaves a very smooth feel. In the winter I tend to get dry skin, as many people do, and this helps keep my skin moisturized for most of the day. I don't usually need to reapply after a liberal morning application.
Initially, the smell wasn't my favorite. I couldn't quite place what it was and I think that was part of it. Once I figured out that it was raspberry vanilla, I liked it much more. It really is like a creamy raspberry milkshake kissed along the skin.
