I tried this lotion out recently. I won an Essential Body Kit from Teen Vogue and this was one the items jam-packed inside. The kit retails for $13. The lotion in a full-size of 8 fl oz. sells for $10. Both can be found on BurtsBees.com. The size I received in the kit was 1 fl. oz (29.5 mL) and is not sold separately.

When sniffing the cream, I can smell why this is called milk and honey body lotion. It has a warm, sweet, pampering scent. More so than milk and honey, the lotion smells like coconut.

Okay, so, I'm taking big points off here for the grease-factor and absorption rate of this product. After applying, it leaves a shiny wet residue that doesn't absorb right away like I'd prefer.

It takes 2 minutes to absorb and needed extra rubbing time. Once it absorbed, my skin felt very soft but greasy. My skin even had a sheen to it. My hands felt very, very greasy after applying the lotion to my body.

I noticed an interesting moisture dichotomy: my arms felt intensely hydrated, even greasy, while my legs felt like they needed more and did not feel as greasy. I lotioned my legs a second time, and they felt more hydrated. Even after that second application to my legs, my legs still felt less greasy than my arms. Weird!

The body lotion is described as naturally nourishing on the packaging and is indeed, 98.25% natural. Some ingredients listed that I like are: Vitamin E, Coconut Oil, Aloe Extract, Sunflower Oil, Honey and Milk Powder. Wholesome!

The bottle is made with 90% post-consumer waste and can be recycled with #2 plastics.
