My Experience with H2O plus Grapefruit Bergamot Moisturizing Body Balm
This body balm comes in a huge, bulky yet sturdy tube packaging. I actually hate the fact that as the product reaches the end of its life; I have to literally wrestle with the tube to get the rest of the product out: P
The body balm as a whipped cream like texture. It absorbs in the skin upper quickly and does not leave behind any layer of grease. So if you are in a rush, just slather this on and get ready, there is no need to worry about you soiling your clothes.
Now for the main thing, the fragrance. For me it’s a bit flat there. The fragrance I pretty nice, it actually smells of ripe guavas. But, it just does not last. At all. So I really don’t see the point in spending so much for this particular fragrance.
Moisturizing power is great and all that jazz…but fragrance has been a disappointment. It pulls down an otherwise great product to average position 🙁

Overall Would I repurchase and recommend?
It’s a decent product, but I will not be repurchasing this. It’s not that great that you have to buy it. Pretty average by all standards.
