Not the Melon & Cucumber I was Expecting
This was my first purchase on Happy Island, and I was excited about it. When I received the lotion, the bottle had stains and the sticker label was slightly crumpled. That's already a minus point for me but it wasn't a deal breaker. I figured it was probably a warehousing or a courier issue. When I opened it though, there was no plastic stopper so there was a bit of dried up lotion on the opening of the bottle. Given how the packaging of the lotion wasn't good to begin with, I'm not sure if the content was in the best condition as well. I'm a fan of Bath & Body Works so I was expecting a similar kind of Cucumber & Melon scent--and it wasn't. The sunflower seed oil scent was more dominant for me. Generally, the scent is pretty toned down so if you're looking for something lightly scented, you'd enjoy this. Formulation-wise, it's thick and a bit sticky so it can be distracting if you use it during work. It can be used for nighttime routine though which is what I did. True to its claim, it does its job of moisturizing the skin. In terms of repurchase, however, I'd tried cheaper but better hand and body lotions.
