"At first glance, I wasn't sure I would be sold on this lotion since I am NOT a fan of sparkling stuff. At first it smells like tart, green apples and then when it fades down, it's a flowery scent. The lotion itself adds a bit of shine to your skin. Not sparkles, but shine! It's rather nice. I prefer this over the regular lotion but it does cost a little more. Overall, yes, I would buy this again."
