Smooth and silky, it's thin enough to dispense through the bottle pump easily but thick enough to be relatively drip-free. It feels so luxurious, it's every bit as good as a fancy-pants high end lotion I received as a gift last year.
The lotion smells very strongly of coconut, with a floral undertone I assume is the "almond". It's a very pleasing and sensual scent, but may be stronger than some people like. It is lasting. When I put it on before bed, by the time I wake up my skin is still lightly perfumed. I think it's a touch too floral to be called gender neutral, but I find it to be a very pleasing scent.
Oh, it's so so good. As I said, the aloe vera juice and high shea content are extremely nourishing and moisturizing, but do take a little longer for the skin to absorb. The results though are fantastic. My horrid dry winter skin is nourished and soft and sweetly perfumed. I find it sinks in a little faster if applied directly after a shower.
