I got a number of sample packs from sparesource.
It was okay, I had a pretty general meh impression on all the products. I find they're very typical scent body products, not very moisturizing but it has a nice strong scent so if you like scented products then this is a very affordable option.

Smelled like vanilla, I didn't really like this. I didn't find this lotion moisturizing and the smell bothered me because it was just too sweet vanilla for me.

I got a SPAresource free sample pack from their website, and I LOVED it! I have eczema so moisturizing my sensitive skin is hard, due mainly to the perfumes, but I have really dry skin. All of the SPAresource body butters and body lotions I tried were very effective at moisturizing while the all-natural perfumes in them didn't irritate my eczema at all! This product is very effective on winter skin, because while it is thick, it absorbs into the skin really well without leaving that greasy-hand feeling after. I have yet to try my free sample of body wash, but I assume I'll love it just the same, the scents are so delicious I dare you to try it and not get a little extra attention!

I was given some samples of this product to test out in several different scents and was not impressed with any of them, to say the least.

As the other reviewer said, these smell nothing like what the label says. Nothing at all. I also tried one with an 'amber' scent (please, what a crock of %#$& - I have a real bottle of amber oil and I can tell you this doesn't even come close) and a few others. All the scents they use are synthetic, NOT natural, so you will never get a nice smell from them.

Secondly, I did not like the way they felt on my skin. I tried them after a bath all over my body and as a hand cream as well as I was going about my business throughout the day. They do not sink into the skin at all. Anything but. I found they left somewhat of a greasy finish on both my body and hands. *GAG and YUCK* Everything about them feels synthetic.

Whether these are gotten as free samples or for a dirt-cheap price, I would never use them again. I went out and got some raw shea butter which is amazing just by itself, melted it down and added some other carrier oils, etc and essential oils to it. THAT is what shea butter is supposed to feel and perform like. How is it I am capable of making a better product in my kitchen than a large company is?

Spa resource Amber vanilla body lotion is made with shea butter, vitamin e, aloe extract and seaweed extract. It say’s to slather it all over your body from your neck to your toes after your bath, or shower. So I did this and although it says it absorbs quickly I didn’t find this to be the case when I used it. Maybe there just isn’t enough of me to spread it all around on. Any how I was expecting it to have a nice vanilla scent to it, but that wasn’t the case either. I’m not sure what it was, or how to describe it, but it sure wasn’t vanilla. The scent did fade away pretty quickly, so that didn’t end up becoming a factor for me. It did how ever absorb into my skin fast and left it soft and silky. Spa resource Amber vanilla body lotion comes in two sizes and sells for only $2.00 to $6 for the larger bottle on they’re web site, but I got mine as a free sample. For the price and it’s effectiveness, it’s worth the two dollars.
