Like at First Rub

This rich, creamy lotion goes on smoothly without being overly greasy. The honeysuckle scent lasts a long time, but could bother those with sensitivities. A bit of a splurge for the price.
Thick and creamy, good sized for travel.
Expensive, overbearing scent.
Rating by reviewer:
useful review


This product comes in something that is the perfect travel size -- just two ounces, so you can even throw it in your carry-on. The scent is a little overbearing, though, so I don't recommend it for closed spaces like airplanes or coffee shops.

It's thick and creamy, so you could use it on any body part, except perhaps your face (especially if you're sensitive to fragrances).

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This is a fairly thick lotion that comes out of the tube easily. It mostly rubs into my skin, although it definitely leaves my hands slightly greasy (I'm typing this with lotion on, and it's making my keys a bit slippery).
    • Creamy
    • Greasy

Taste / Aroma

The scent says that it's 'honeysuckle grapefruit', and it is. Sort of. It smells first like grapefruit, but that goes away really fast and it turns into honeysuckle and lavender and sunscreen (which is odd, since there isn't any sunscreen in it). I found the scent overbearing, to be honest. Also, I have rosacea, and when I put this on my hands it makes my face flare up. So if you're sensitive to fragrances, this lotion might cause a reaction.
    • Strong smell


The lotion stays on for a long time -- as I said, it's slightly greasy, but it definitely makes my skin feel soft. It does wash off easily. As I mentioned before, the scent is very overbearing for me, as someone who's sensitive to fragrances.
    • Allergy concerns
Follow-up commentary
I gave it a three rating because it was fine, but nothing special. When it came time to give the follow-up review, I realized I hadn't used it since the review, which is usually a sign. My feelings for it haven't changed, but there are a lot of lotions that smell and feel better than this one on my skin.
