Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells and works nice I've been on a citrus fruit kick lately, so I was super excited to learn of this when it came out! While it smells nice, the smell is actually sort of mild compared to other DE lotions (particularly coconut and vanilla chai, which are very strong and the scent lasts for hours). As usual with DE lotions, the texture is good and rubs into skin well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Smells like benzoate. I love the sweet almond hand and body lotion, so I ordered this thinking it would be similar. The lemon scent is extremely mild, secondary to the sodium benzoate, which is a chemical, cloying scent. The benzoate is very pronounced, is the dominant note, and is what I smell on my skin. (Of course, everyone wears scent differently; perhaps it won't be the same for someone else.) I worked in the beverage industry, and once you learn what sodium benzoate smells/tastes like, it's really hard to ignore. I'm going to return this product and stick to the items I can sniff before I buy. If you're looking for a hit of lemon similar to the fragrances in DE's other [really great] lotions, think twice before purchasing this. Given the quality of their other products, the hiccup on this one is just plain weird.
