Milk? Honey? The "natural" fragrance in this product (which they won't name) is incredibly strong, permeates not just the bathroom but throughout the entire house and gave me a headache. If you're at all chemically sensitive, stay away from this junk. Like other "green" companies owned by Clorox, you can't trust them.

Best Natural Lotion
When I purchased a sample kit with an assortment of Burt's Bees products, I instantly was hooked on the milk and honey body lotion. I have been plagued by the genetic skin disorder keratosis pilaris since I was a young child, so finding a product to diminish the appearance has been a hectic task for years. Finally, I can feel good about myself and not feel embarrassed by the appearance of grotesque bumps on my skin, because the milk and honey lotion absorbs into my skin making it soft to the touch and the keratosis pilaris bumps are drastically less noticeable. I am so pleased with this Burt's Bees product that I will continue to buy it and anybody who suffers from keratosis pilaris should definitely look into trying this lotion, because it really does help soften the bumps, not to mention this is one great smelling product! I recommend this product to everyone, even if they don't have my lifelong skin condition, because it's an all natural product that makes people feel great.
Bring back the original
I ran out of my original milk and honey lotion that comes in the bottle, and after looking in 5 different stores, I realized they changed the packaging, or so I thought. I settled for the smaller tube of milk and honey lotion thinking at least I would have the same product. I'TS NOT! the first thing I noticed was the thicker consistency, followed by the displeasing smell. I feel I had to use more of the product, which would lead to it running out quicker. The original was milky and smooth and had a pleasing scent. Even my 5 year old who loves the "Bee" lotion said "it's not the same lotion Mommy. This one smells funny." She was right. It smells like product that is old, it has a smell like play-doh. I am dissappointed, Ive been using this for years, and have turned several others onto it. I also had a reaction throughout the day that led to my whole body itching, and hives. I was always a burts bees fan, but if they are going to "improve" their whole line, Im going to sadly have to say goodbye.
Good lotion, offensive odor
I love the Radiance Body Lotion for everyday and Ultimate Care Hand Cream for winter, so I was excited to try Milk and Honey Body Lotion. It smells like baby powder and vinegar to me, which I was hoping would dissipate, but the odor is still wafting around me even after wiping it off with a wet rag. If you liked the other lotions I mentioned, your body chemistry may be more like mine, in which case avoid this one! It is an effective softener and moisturizer, though.
This is a mixed bag. As a previous reviewer said, it leaves you smelling like a wet dog. I don't know how that is even possible and I've never had that happen with any other lotion before. The smell does dissipate though and as long as you aren't sitting and huffing your hands, it shouldn't bother you. From a distance after a while you just smell faintly powdery sweet. I use this mainly on my elbows and hands. It does do a good job at moisturizing but not a great one. At the level of what it does it should be cheaper because while it is thicker than your typical Curel/Neutrogena/Suave/Drugstore lotion, it doesn't out perform them. I don't find this lotion to be greasy and I do use quite a bit (quarter size) per application. I like natural products though and the little 6oz bottle is small enough to stash in my purse just to have on hand. This is more of a summer lotion than anything because of it's light level of moisturization. If you have harsh winters like those there in Buffalo, this won't help you.
