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.

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."

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.
hands down favorite lotion
suzy from california
Always my got to lotion. super gentle, great for sensitive skin. it does have a wonderful, sweet scent- but it goes away after your skin drinks it up. and let me tell you- your skin will lap it up! lol. I probably use hand santizer/wash my hands at least 30x per day at work and this is literally the only thing that saves me from having super cracked, awful skin. even better than those oily balms for fingertips. oh and this lotion is not oily, doesn't make me break out. I literally use this everywhere (except my face).
Smells like Pepto Bismol
Teeny from N/A
Or amoxicillin—basically like artificial bubble gum, which is so weird. I haven't even wanted to try it since I bought it because the smell is so strong and awful. Glad I purchased it on sale, would not buy again, but would be open to other scents from this brand.
MK from Gilbert, AZ
The Hempz brand is new to me, but I will definitely be using it again. The lotion is SUPER moisturizing and it has a very pleasant aroma, not too much. I can't handle the really aromatic lotions, so this one is perfect!! :)
Will always buy THIS product.

Love! Love! Love!

As far as moisturizing goes, this lotion is average. I do like the smell.
Smell 0/5 Lotion Formula 5/5
Creed from Louisiana
I really wanted to love this stuff. I just couldn't stand the smell. The formula was great, I just couldn't get past the smell. I will be purchasing another scent though!!
Typically great but my online order was old and brown
ConnoisseurofProducts from Sac., CA
This is usually a fantastic smelling lotion that works great but ulta sent me an old bottle that was probably laying around. That's why I don't like ordering online. They probably ship old products.
Mrspriss09 from Dothan AL
Bought it because it was on sale. It smells good but it is subpar. It's not moisturizing hardly at all. I can think of way cheaper lotions that do a way better job. This lotion is very overhyped and actually doesn't do what a lotion is supposed to do. I use it on my hands but after a couple hours, my hands feel dryer than what they were before. It's a little strange.
Smells so good!!!
Soph from Va
This lotion smells so good and feels so nice on skin!
Will purchase over and over again
Curly Head from State College PA
I use this every morning after my shower. I had my husband use it on his hands that are in bad shape from hand sanitizer after one use they felt much better.
I do buy this all the time.
Sandy from Brookfield, Wi.
I use this for my arms, legs, and feet. I take this to my nail salon to use on my hands.
Light and creamy....

Great all over lotion
