First off, this lotion smells amazing. It's sweet but not cloying, so it doesn't bother me while I'm working at my desk all day. The coffee-like aroma is so calming and welcoming.
And then there's the actual formula, which is thick, lush and rich. I would actually classify this as more of a lotion than a balm, since balms tend to be more oily and slick than this formula. Thanks to candlenut oil, this lotion nourishes and conditions the skin like none other I've tried! I only use a dime-sized amount, which is enough to completely cover my cracked and chapped hands and immediately soften and smooth them.
I have a feeling I'll be using a lot of this lotion come winter, since my hands are already cracking and it's only October!
In a (candle)nut shell? I'm in love.
