Rated 4.75 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Wow!
This is a must try for anyone looking for great moisturization, non-greasy & great absorption. Your skin will feel like silk (no kidding!). You know how some lotions feel heavy?, not this one. I am really loving this. The original has a slight fragrance of banana/strawberry - think tropical. I also have the pomegrante & like it very much too. As a hand lotion, it helps with dry cuticles & brittle nails. I know its a bit expensive, but you don't need alot & its performance is well worth the price. Super product!
Most Helpful Critical Review Super strong smelling
I have and love the Hempz Sensitive Skin Moisturizer, which smells softly of sweet bakery and pipe tobacco. I thought I would try the Original out of curiosity. It works just as well and it does smell good, but it is very strongly perfumed, it does not dissipate, and gave my husband and I a headache. At first I couldn't place the scent - maybe Sweet Tarts - very sweet and fruity smelling. But then I realized where I recognized it - an air freshener called Money House Blessing Spray - containing 9 Indian fruits, often used to cover the smell of pot or said to bring peace/ward off bad vibes. I'd say it is an exact knock off. Again, not a bad fragrance, just way too strong for me to use, will have to return and will stick to the Sensitive Hempz.

I'm not sure what "original" is supposed to smell like but it smells great and works wonderfully
Mary Jane from Savannah, Georgia
This is my favorite lotion. You never have to reapply I stay moisturized all day and the smell doesn't fade.
Absorbent and Soothing

A restaurant restroom had this. I tried because my hands hurt from dryness. This helped and I looked in several stores before finding it in Ulta. Glad I did!
I would buy this product again.

After a shower. Wish it was less expensive. Might not be able to purchase as often.
I love this lotion!

I'm a Hempz lotion girl for life! Recently tried the sweet pineapple and honey melon. Fabulous!! I then picked up(I'm a lil obsessed lol) pomegranate,so good! Also green tea and asian pear,on the lighter side, wonderful. Also the triple whipped blue one,it smells like VS love spell,amazing! The original,banana floral scent, love it. Also the ginger and vanilla, pleasant but not a huge fan. I love these lotions cuz they sink right into skin,spread so easily,and best of all it has a fragrance that lingers for hours on your skin. Highly recommend to anyone! I'd give it 10 stars if I could. Buy a bottle and see for yourself ☺️. I'm a cosmetologist,so I've tried many many beauty products. This is a winner for me.
I would buy it again

I purchased the original scent after returning the lavender scent that was very strong. My son likes this scent better so I had to wait until it was back in stock
Great smell, ok moisture
MS from TX
I had always loved the smells of this lotion and decided to splurge on a bottle. I still love the smell, but I feel like this does not moisturize as well as other brands (I'm a big fan of Nivea). I think I would use this as hand lotion or a travel lotion, but this didn't do much as far as an everyday moisturizer!
Was not expecting the scent
Kaitlin from CO
I owned the Age Defying version of this and loved it, and went to replace it... I figured "original" would mean relatively unscented, but it smells like bubblegum. I wish there would have been some disclaimer about it being heavily scented.
Em from PA
It made my skin really soft
Smells like grape medicine
Perry the Platypus from Simi Valley, CA
It's a pretty good lotion, it smells like grape medicine though. It's strange but tbh I don't care as the smell fades after a bit of time anyway.
my favorite lotion!
cj from florida
i shower everyday (washing my hair every other day) and this has been my go to after shower lotion for years! it locks in moisture, it smells great, and it's not too thick or greasy which is great because i typically avoid that in lotions. my skin is pretty normal, it's not too dry but sometimes i do get dry on my elbows/knees and this lotion is perfect!
Finally pinned down the scent!
Josie from Colorado
I love Hempz, but really only the scent of the blue lotion. I wanted to love this one but the scent is so off putting and familiar in a weird way. After running out of everything else, I came back to this original lotion tonight and it finally came to me- Wrigley's gum!
Instant transportation to being passed Wrigley's prior to church service as a child.
Not unpleasant, but not what I want to smell like.
Feels great on my skin
Wendyk from Santa Clarita, CA
This makes my skin feel so soft and moisturized. The original Fragrance is very pleasant, not too strong. After trying it I ended up ordering more. I'm going to keep this in my household from now on.
LOVE this lotion!
Stella from USA
This lotion smells fantastic, is non-greasy, soaks into skin fast & lightly scents my skin. This was a huge hit back in the day & it's been nice having the classic banana-esque scent around again! Got a good deal on the price as well. Will definitely buy again!
Me Myself And I from Flat Rock, Michigan
This lotion softens, and smooths my skin, and calms my sunburn. I love how this leaves my elbows, and my dry cracked feet.
L from New York
I had heard such good things about this moisturizer, but it really let me down.
The smell is like bananas on steroids, and it's not moisturizing. Left my skin feeling like I didn't put moisturizer on at all.
Yes I will buy again
Jo from Arkansas
Great all around lotion for whole family
Suzanne from Plymouth, MN
Great sweet scent but not overpowering. Deeply moisturizing.
Neech from Los Angeles
I thought I was buying one with no scent, guess that's the age defying, so I wasn't expecting a smell, it's a bit too sweet for me, so I'll give it to a friend
Best lotion ever !!!
Lissie from Oxnard Ca
Love the smell smells like banana ! Or banana bubble gum ! You Can wash ur hands and Your hands remain soft ! Does not dry skin!
Not for me
Amber from Cleveland
The smell is strange to me and too strong. The consistency is super watery. I just wasn't into this, especially for the price.
Gina777 from Ohio
I absolutely love this brand! I have the triple moisture and the original. The smell of the original is like heaven in a bottle. I kept thinking of tutti fruity at first but it's banana and that's even better! It makes my skin feel so smooth and hydrated.
