Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Lotion

This is the second of the Positively Nourishing Body Lotion from Aveeno. I already reviewed the first one, Aveeno Positively Nourishing Energizing Body Lotion.
Product Review: Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Lotion

Where to purchase: drugstores, mass merchandiser, or online at aveeno.com
Price: $5.99-$6.99 for 7 oz/ 198 g

Made in Canada

Description on the back: This luxurious body lotion with lavender and chamomile envelops your skin in lasting moisture while its relaxing scent soothes your senses.

Powered with ACTIVE NATURALS Colloidal Oatmeal, the natural ingredient most recommended by dermatologist to maintain healthy looking skin.
Ingredients:
Thoughts: Since I had such great experience with the Aveeno Positively Nourishing Energizing Body Lotion, I was hoping for the same. It did not let me down! The only thing I was not keen on was the scent. As time went on, I actually did not mind the scent. Don't get me wrong I still like the Energizing better, but the scent was fine after awhile. I cannot distinguish if lavender or chamomile was stronger. Since I'm not a floral person, I don't know my scents. :X
The consistency of the lotion is semi-thick. It looks thick in the picture, but it's a lot creamier than you think. When applying the lotion, it's smooth and melts in your skin. It kind of reminds me of The Body Shop Body Butter. I like that it's not extremely thick that it's hard to spread on your skin. If you have extremely dry skin, it will take couple usage before it moisturizes your skin. If you're semi-dry, I think this lotion is perfect!
One thing I like about the body lotion is that it comes in a tube! I like the concept knowing it's sanitary safe and the germs cannot go into the lotion. I also like that you can carry this tube around without worrying it will burst in your bag for example. I hate traveling and putting the products in a Zip Lock bag fearing it will burst. I don't have to do that with this lotion. The lid is very sturdy and it is impossible for it to open.

Pros:
* Aveeno; brand that uses natural ingredients.
* Comes in a tube; sanitary safe.
* Easy to carry.
* Lid does not easily open.
* No fear of it bursting.
* Creamy consistency.
* Semi-thick.
* Melts like butter.
* Moisturizes semi-dry skin.

Cons:
* Floral scent.

Would repurchase: Yes, but probably in the other scent.
