The texture of this lotion is a little bit on the runny side. I have been applying it to my son’s dry skin on the leg area but didn’t notice any improvement. I tried this after using the Hydra Bebe for normal skin also from Mustela which was not effective for my son. The smell is the classic Mustela smell which is quite strong if you are have a sensitive nose. Now we are trying the Cetaphil lotion and hope for a better result.
