There is a J.R. Watkins cream or lotion for every room of your house. This lemon cream is nice to keep in the kitchen. When you apply it however you may become hungry for lemon cookies. It has a mildly sweet aroma and smells more like lemon juice than lemon zest. I was surprised that this is as moisturizing as the shea butter body creams. This has some good ingredients like apricot oil, shea butter, cocoa seed butter, coconut oil and jojoba oil. Definitely one of the best hand and body lotions I've ever tried. I use it mainly as a hand lotion.

I've been using JR Watkins products in my house for awhile and recently ran across this at a CVS and decided to pick it up for a day outside. I went hiking and swimming, then used this on my face to help post-sun exposure. It went on smoothly, wasn't greasy and had a nice smell to it. Where my face can get fairly dry after swimming in the ocean, it felt smooth and moisturized after using this. Will definitely be staying in my beach bag!

Watkins products have been around for so long. I use to only know about the real flavoring sand extracts that contained alcohol but the body products are just as awesome! They are all natural and smell good enough to eat but better yet, they actually work better than they claim. It is hard to find them though.

This works really well after a day in the sun. I keep this in the cabinet after the family goes to the water park in the summer. They come back like little lobsters from not wearing the sunblock like I nag them and beg for the special sun lotion. I get to be the hero with the magic lotion that takes away the sting. This lotion isn't oily and has a great scent. Plus this is made by a great company.

I love to use this product in the summer after I've spent a day out in the sun. It has the soothing qualities of an Aloe gel, it helps to keep my skin from becoming irritated. If I have a sunburn, this product helps to alleviate any pain or itching I'm feeling.

I love all things J.R. Watkins, but this stuff is fabulous!! I love that this, like all J.R. Watkins products, is all natural, and it works so well after I've been in the sun for a while. My skin feels so good and refreshed after using this.
