This is highly effective. It is not the slightly watery type of easily absorbable lotion or body butter. It will leave something of an emollient sheen on your skin at first. But that absorbs quickly. Once it has absorbed, the quality of hydration is noticeable. One application of this will last almost all day, as opposed to the water-based lotions that have to be constantly reapplied.
I’ve used a lot of lotions in my time and this one is different. It does things the others don’t. Recommend.
