Both the lotion and the cream have a great smell. It's a little menthol and sweet like vanilla. It's not strong like the lip balms are but, it's noticeable. Initially you can feel the lotion on top of your skin but, it does absorb very quickly. The cream, as you would suspect is definitely thicker than the lotion. I've used it on dry skin and I've used it right out the shower. It works well with my skin after the shower and makes my skin feel soft.
Personally, this feels more like a protectant than a moisturizer. Often it seems as though it lays on top of the skin as a barrier. It's works for regular skin and for drier skin, you would probably have to apply it more often than once a day. The cream would definitely be a better choice for those with drier skin.
Overall, I'm really happy with this lotion and would buy it in the future!
