Great stuff
5 Star Review   By JoyfulYogi on Vitacost - Apr 3, 2013   

This lotion is THICK. But it works really great. I've been dropping a few drop of Calendula oil and mixing it up before applying it to my skin, and it's really helped my skin heal and aided in hydration. I'd strongly recommend this lotion to anyone who has chronically dry skin, especially when dryness is accompanied by irritated, not-so-pretty patches. A big thanks to VitaCost for supplying such great, high-quality items with safe ingredients at such affordable prices!

Good Moisturizer
5 Star Review   By deeliza on Vitacost - Oct 5, 2012   

I do agree with the reviewers that this is extremely thick, but that does not subtract from the benefits. It is a winter moisturizer, however It does not cause breakouts, which is a major benefit to me as my skin is very sensitive to products. The smell is not overpowering, but mild. I cut open the plastic bottle & scrape contents into an empty old body cream jar, problem solved. I also mix in either vit e or jojoba oil to make it a little lighter & to add more moisture, it can seem a little dry at times. Overall I purchase this over and over along with the body wash. To thin the body wash, I add Dr Woods pure black liquid soap. I love the results I get from these products.

I really like the Black Soap Extract Lotion
5 Star Review   By Devra on Vitacost - Sep 17, 2012   

This is another thicker cream, but after using it for two years I find that along with several other Nubian Heritage products, I return to this over and over. It is too thick for summer use, but sometimes I use it just on my face and chest where I have age spot and blood vessel and skin tag issues. This lotion works remarkably well at reducing all of those things in a very noticeable way. Enough to have me buy it and keep it in stock even when I sometimes prefer using one of the other lighter lotions all over my body more regularly. The scent is unusual and not very noticeable on my skin. No one seems to notice it like some of the other scents. I like it, but not for 24/7. I consider the creams very thick if I can't put one of my pumps on the top and have it work. This cream is too thick for that and you have to bang the bottle upside down to squeeze this cream out. I wish Nubian Heritage would make all the creams looser and consistently easier to get out of the bottles.

pleasant scent
2 Star Review   By deeneegee on Vitacost - Apr 23, 2012   

the scent of this product is nice enough but i agree with the reviewers that say it is a hard product to get out of the container and it goes on very thick.. it takes a while to rub into the skin... more of a skin cream than a lotion.

I Want it Thick! Don't change it!
5 Star Review   By estaeheli on Vitacost - Apr 23, 2012   

I like the thickness of the lotion. It you don't, why don't you thin if down, or use less?I got a blemish on my face and I put some of this on it. The next day it was totally dried up!

best lotion ever
5 Star Review   By deeliza on Vitacost - Mar 25, 2012   

I decided to try this when I could no longer find Shea moisture black soap lotion, only to discover that this is ths same lotion only a different brand & it is the same Co, sundial! My husband loves the smell it is clean & smells like botanicals he says.it is extremely thick but I cut it open & put it in an empty jar. I add addtl Shea butter or vitamin E oil to make sure my skin stays baby soft during winter.i use alone in summer & I find it absorbs well.this lotion keeps your skin moist preventing it from feeling like paper.I know a lot of women don't like the feel of oil on the skin & prefer that paper feel, but most men don't like to touch skin that feels like paper.

too thick; no help from manufacturer
1 Star Review   By leelala on Vitacost - Feb 9, 2012   

I wanted to love this as I like the Dr Woods Black Soap. I liked that it was all organic. Read the reviews that said it was too thick and thought some of those are old reviews, surely by now they would have fixed that problem. Product received and guess what, too thick to get *any* out. Had to stick finger in to try it. Liked that it smells like sandalwood incense. Contacted the manufacturer by searching on their website and sending email asking for solution. No response. Emailed vitacost and they offered refund upon return. Thank you. Decided to keep it. Cut open bottle to get at product. It is super dry, not creamy at all. can only be spread evenly on skin if skin is moist and warm from bath.

This lotion has a rich , moisturizing texture and wonderful scent, which doesn't hold the whole day, but I don't care. The lotion works for my dry skin perfectly.

Works for the whole Famiily
5 Star Review   By Crane on Vitacost - Jul 17, 2011   

I originally purchased this just for me as a face lotion, but my husband quickly started sneaking it because it felt so good and was non greasy. I then started to use it on my son's dry patches which cleared up completely within a few days. My daughter likes it as a night lotion so it has quickly become a family favorite. No complaints here and what a great price.

wrong container
3 Star Review   By Dani7 on Vitacost - Mar 12, 2011   

With the consistency of the "lotion", it belongs in a jar, not a tall thin squeeze bottle. Much time was spent trying to tap it out, and then there was about inch of it at the bottom that I gave up on. It was moisturizing, but I didn't notice a difference with acne.

Gotta have this product
5 Star Review   By missyD on Vitacost - Feb 28, 2011   

I started purchasing this product at my local health food store, absolutely love it. I requested that Vitacost carry it since at that time the were not stocking any of Nubian Heritage product. I am so glad that Vitacost have this product at a reasonable price. I loveee the smell and that it last a long time, I don't have to use any chemical base lotion but get the same results; smell goooood. Could be a little lighter in texture, but overall good.

first relief I've had in a long time
5 Star Review   By fzouki on Vitacost - Jan 30, 2011   

My hands as well of the rest of me have been in agony this winter because of the dry air. Note to anyone from the southern swamps-don't move north!! Back to the lotion, it's the first time my skin has felt normal in ages and not dry, cracking, and painful. Yes it's thick but I've had no trouble getting it out of the bottle, and yes the smell sticks around but personally I think it's heavenly and am glad it doesn't disappear immediately. I love this lotion!

Not Recommended
1 Star Review   By Luv2Shop27 on Vitacost - Jun 27, 2010   

This product is extremely thick and very difficult to squeeze out of the bottle. Once out of the bottle, I found it very challenging to rub and soak into your skin. The smell quite strong and bothersome and it did not dissipate with time.

Pure lotion for a great price
4 Star Review   By mariahlove on Vitacost - Jun 16, 2010   

I love how pure and natural the ingrediants are in all of the Nubian products. This lotion is no exception, however it is more like a thick creme than a lotion. It absorbs well but is so thick that it's difficult to get out of the container. I don't really know how this would help with acne, but it hydrates the skin nicely. Over all I am satisfied. One thing that is interesting to me is that the papaya coconut lotion that is supposed to address dry mature skin, smells fantasic but is much less thick and absorbent than this creme. I think they got the intended skin types swapped. But you can't beat the price or purity of ingrediants.

Worth the wait
5 Star Review   By aPicky1 on Vitacost - May 15, 2010   

Smells nice. Fast-absorbing. I noticed improved skin texture, that lasted longer than after immediate use of the product. Even helped with hair bumps. Also, not too heavy to use in springtime in GA - let's see about summer.
