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.

This is a nice moisturizer. It's light and the herbal scent is not overpowering. I would buy this again.
I love this Hempz!
Becca from Vero Beach
I LOVE this product. I use it daily and my husband also uses it. It is the best moisturizer for your skin. The smell is great.
My favorite lotion

I use this all the time! The smell is amazing and I just love it.
Great lotion but it smells like bananas
Cdclayp from NC
I love hempz brand lotions and have tried different scents. I thought the original version would be fragrance free or light smelling but it's not. It smells like bananas and the scent is overpowering for the first hour or so. I'll never buy this scent again.
Mike from New York
I'm a guy and noticed all my sisters using this lotion so I decided to give it a try since I tend to dry my hands and arms out with harsh soaps and detergents (as a mechanic) and of all the lotions I have used this is hands down the best I have ever used by a long shot. It absorbs fast and makes my skin feel like actual skin. My issue is with the scent, it's not a bad scent, kinda girly smelling tbh but it's the fact that the scent is SO STRONG, it's like I just sprayed 8-10 sprays of a cologne on and it honestly gets kinda nauseating. I just gave the bottle away and bought a different scent from hempz and it was still girly but was significantly more muted. To bad they don't just make an unscented version of the original, the market for men would probably be a lot higher
Great product. Nice smell and keeps hands soft.
Patricia from Reno, NV
I use this on my hands not all over. It has a nice scent and feels lightweight.
I would buy again

Always a fan of HEMPZ lotions. The original hasn't disappointment.
It doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy at all and it makes me skin smooth and soft.
I have an issue with excessively washing my hands and this has been great to have on hand to keep them from drying out.
I HATE lotion that leaves my skin, especially hands, feeling greasy and this lotion doesn't do that at all.
I have super sensitive skin and this hasn't caused me any issues and actually seems to help when I have a flare up.

Wonderful lotion always helps my dry skin

Our household's go-to lotion
Angelika from Salt Lake City
We keep a large original scent bottle of this in the house at all times because it is our normal everyday lotion. My husband and I both love the smell of it, so it's not "too girly" for him to put on, at least in his opinion. This is a medium weight lotion, so it holds up in most scenarios but if I have ultra-dry cracked skin on my hands I will more likely use a specialized product for that. This is not so heavy that it leaves a residue or makes me feel greasy. My skin "drinks it up". But it's not so lightweight that it disappears upon applying either.. if that makes sense?!
We love the pump dispenser, I think it contributes to the ease of use and reason we put it on so often without even thinking about it.
I use this on my knees, elbows, feet and hands 10 minutes or so before doing my self-tanner application routine. I use it when I get out of the shower, on my entire body (except face). And I mostly use it throughout the day when I notice my hands need it (lots of handwashing + dry climate = not good for my poor hands!)
heavenly Hempz lotions
twinkle toes from Kansas City
Hempz moisturizers are my 'go to'. I couldn't afford my favorite fragrance or wouldn't pay it. This is just fine. It's Hempz. What's not to like?
Syd from Ashland ky
Love the smell and feel. Great for dry skin.
Good lotion, smells like banana!!
jo from Idontwanna
I wanted to give it more of a 3.5 rating. It's good lotion! Doesn't feel sticky on the skin, absorbs well, and makes me feel hydrated. BUT the smell is terrible!! To me this smells straight up like artificial banana! Like a gross banana laffy taffy 😣 even my family and boyfriend agree. I'm never buying the original again, but will check out their other scents since the lotion is good
CC from Maine
I love this moisturizer! It's on the medium thickness for a lotion, which I like; I don't like thin lotions. It definitely is hydrating, but if you're not a fan of scented lotions, you probably won't like this one. It has a good scent, but it's not purfumey or over whelming. I also got the travel size to keep in my purse!
Too strong a scent
CK100 from CA
I love the formula of hempz lotion but sensitive to most of the smells they have. I got this one thinking it was a neutral scent but it's SO STRONG!! It's a super sweet and floral scent (think VS body mist) and it lingered on my skin for a while after. If you're sensitive to strong scented lotions like me I'd suggest their "sensitive skin" lotion instead, it smells like oatmeal but in the slightest way.
Great smelling, creamy lotions that work!
Pam from White Plains, MD
I have 2 Hempz lotions that both smell great and work well to moisturize my chapped, cracked hands from washing them so much. Original herbal body moisturizer smells & works wonderfully, as well as Citrine Crystal & Quartz herbal fusions body moisturizer.
I will buy it over and over. I love this product
Yaya from Fredericksburg VA
It's just perfect for my skin
Hannah from FL
I absolutely adore Hempz lotions. They absorb into my skin quickly and keep my skin moisturized. However, I ordered this one thinking it would be unscented and boy, was I wrong. It smells like artificial fruit and it's so strong that it gives me a headache. I should have read other reviews before assuming that "original" doesn't mean "unscented."
Lynnmarie.d from Plymouth mi
Great daily lotion plus smells great
The smell is amazing!!
Allie from Oklahoma
I use this product for dry skin and I love it.
smells like PEZ candy
georgia girl from midwest
not sure where I got this from, maybe a diamond gift but wow, is this heavily scented. its awful. it smells exactly like PEZ candy. why can't anything be unscented!? especially when it's tauting health. adding synthetic scent isn't healthy.
Must have! One of the bests out there
Elizabeth L. from Pueblo, co
This is a must have around the house because it's entire vibe is beyond words. You have to smell this! I can't stress that enough. The smell alone makes it a worthwhile purchase. It smells like happiness, bubblegum, and childhood. It should be advertised as aromatherapy gold! Usually you can't get both moisture and a great smell, but here it is. Plenty of lightweight, non-greasy moisture. We live in a desert, so sometimes I require something heavier, but this is an affordable must have...at all times!
I will keep buying this product
April from Vallejo, CA
I love the smell of the original scent and how well this lotion works with no oily feeling.
BlancaReyna from Chandler indiana
Love the scent. However I don't think it's very hydrating to my skin. I'm going through chemotherapy treatment so my skin maybe just too dry.
