Rating: Honestly I do find the lotion base to leave a slight sticky residue on its own, but after adding my favourite carrier oils, I was amazed. If I could post photos of what my nails and cuticles looked like last week, compared to now, I would. I’m impressed! And so are the people I shared samples with. ND is a trusted provider, and worth the travel on public transit from Brampton!!!👍🏽
Rating: Just got this product a few days ago. It went on the skin very smoothly and to my surprise, no greasy or sticky feel! Excited to add some fragrance to it and see what can be done with it!

Rating: I use this lotion all the time. I use it in white M& P soap to give the bars a real super moisturizing effect. Superb product at a knock out price!

Rating: I love making my own bases from scratch, but this ultra premium lotion base remains my best go-to product when I'm too busy to create my own base, or when I'm low on my own creations and need to create a custom product in a hurry.
This base is so versatile and forgiving. I've added, at the correct %, many botanicals as well as EOs, and all kinds of other actives to the final product, all with success and good shelf life. As with all the other base products, I always gently warm the product before adding my custom products.
Because my base is a lotion and not a cream, the final product is often a bit liquid, But this is not a problem.
Overall, this is an excellent product.

Rating: My most favourite product from here...I even use it on my baby I just add a bit of colloidal oatmeal, a few drops of Viamin E oil, jojoba oil and baby powderfragrant oil. Great as a facial cream base just add vitamin E oil, rosemary EO, jojoba oil, aloe vera juice. Its a great product and good value for money.

Rating: I thought I would try the Lotion thinking it would be lighter than the Cream base. Sadly, it was the opposite. I found this thicker, greasy and less absorbent in my skin than the cream. I purchased with the intent to use on my face, but will relegate it to a body lotion only. I will go back to the cream in the future.

Rating: Absolutely love this base, very thick and no greasy feel, absorbs great and holds my scents well. Extremely versatile to make all kinds of products!
By:Vanessa, Terrace Bay, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Jan-2011
Rating: Extremely thick lotion and your skin absorbs easily without being greasy...keeps skin moisturized and soft all day...this is an excellent value for such a quality lotion!!!
Rating: If you can get past the fact that it has the appalling consistency and appearance of Miracle Whip, it's lovely on the skin. It moisturizes well and doesn't leave skin greasy. My only other concerns are that it's difficult to squeeze out of the bottle and a fair bit gets wasted on account of it sticking to the sides and defying gravity when it's left upside-down for hours. Also, it doesn't go very far, so it doesn't end up being as good a deal as it appears.

Rating: I received the new reformulated version of this lotion about a month ago and I am very disappointed... It is too sticky and heavier than the previous one I had tried. I was using it as a base for face creams. The new version it is too sticky and leaves a sheen to the face. My customers keep asking me why I changed the recipe as they absolutely loved how the other one felt on their skin. I also do not like the caramel color added to it. Any chance you will go back to the other formula ? In the mean time this version make a good everyday hand cream. It absorbs fairly well in the skin and does not leave an oily feel. Just not suitable for face use.
Rating: I just got this lotion today and WOW, I love it!!!!! Its so rich and thick, just the way I like it but without the greasy, oily feel. I was very pleased and will order more in the future. Thanks!
Rating: Wow.....WOW ! This lotion blends wonderfully and is a great moisturizer, leaves skin baby soft, no greasy after feel accepts fragrance like a dream. Thanks New Directions!

Rating: I purchased for a facial cream and was a little worried at the thickness, but I'm amazed how easily it is absorbed and not greasy at all! Add my essential oils with no problem. Am very pleased with this product!

Rating: The Ultra Premium Lotion Base has been the "find of the century" for me. This lotion is very lush and readily absorbed into the skin leaving it fresh and so moist. Recently I had a very serious reaction to a medication prescribed by my doctor, the side effects included swelling to my face and it also became extremely rashed and irritated. Around my eyes I had deep craters from the fever and swelling. I used this cream probably 10 times a day to help hydrate my skin. I was truly concerned about permanent wrinkles left over after the swelling and rash disappeared. But I most happy to say that after using this lotion my face has returned to normal and no sign what-so-ever of wrinkles that I thought I would have.
All family and friends are in love with this lotion! Congratulations on such a great product.
Rating: This lotion is as good as the best lotions I've ever tried at a fraction of the cost! Put some of your favourite essential or fragrance oil in this and you've got something truly outstanding.

Rating: This is the most luxurious lotion base you will ever try! It goes on so smooth and is not greasy at all considering how thick it is. My skin which is normally very dry, and flaky stayed moisturized all day long. A perfect product for the cold months ahead. I think I'm addicted to it already!
By:Stephanie, Burlington, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 21-Nov-2006
Rating: Family and Friends who are volunteer testers all agree that this lotion is great. I am using it unscented on a daily basis on my hands (as it is soap season) and I think that it is excellent as it absorbs quickly, non greasy and appears to be providing a great barrier to the elements. Will be ordering more!

Rating: Super silky-smooth, excellent absorption rate on the skin, VERY thick lotion. Speaking of which, is there a pump available for the 1L size? I'm having a hard time figuring out how to "pour" it!
By:Karen, Nepean, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-May-2006
Rating: A great lotion that is receptive to additives allowing you to develop a variety of skin care lotions with this single base product. This is truly a premium product.

Rating: You've got to try this! The texture is very smooth and feel wonderful on the skin. It blends well with EOs and you can make your personalized lotion in just a second! I use it for my family and they just love it. Excellent product!
Rating: The Ultra Premium Lotion Base is a wonder product! The description that the product is robust doesn't do it justice. This lotion base has the best consistency of any base I have made myself or tried from other competitors. I urge anyone from the first timer to the full scale operator to give this product a try and experience the difference. Pour and add your fragrance and you have produced your lovely, hydrating lotion that is ready to compete with anything on the market today. My customers rave!!! Bravo to you New Directions - you have a winner!!!
