The skin hydration properties are excellent. The texture is perfect. There is no mess with these body butters. Most of the scents are outstanding, but a few are sickeningly sweet and overpowering. So much so that people with sensitivities to odors will complain hours after the body butter was applied. The best scent is the olive and the worst is the strawberry. It would be great if one could order all Olive for the same price.
