The Body Shop Dewberry Body Lotion

The only reason I picked this up is because it was four euros and it was a popular item in the eighties. Before this I had no idea what a Dewberry was. But apparently it's closely related to a Blackberry.

The Body Shop says:
It’s back! A deliciously fruity body lotion to moisturise the skin, leaving it feeling soft, smooth and fragrant. This light-weight lotion leaves skin feeling soft and fragranced with the nostalgic scent of Dewberry ™. An old favourite from The Body Shop®, originally launched in 1988 - now improved with added Community Trade shea butter, babassu oil and 100% post-consumer recycled packaging!!!

So my first time using this I couldn't stand it. The scent out the bottle is strong and pine smelly and kinda undescribable. As a matter of fact I still hate the scent out the bottle. But once it dries on my skin the scent is kinda nice and clean and soapy plus it lingers around 2-3 hours. So you can kinda say I have a love/hate relationship with the scent. The consistency is thin and reminds me of Neutrogena's Sesame Lotion. It rubs in easy and is lightly moisturizing. I wouldn't recommend this for super dry skin though. If you have super dry elbows, hands, knees or anything else you might need something else. Don't get me wrong though it DOES work.
