my suggestions: 
I don’t disagree, but I only use it on my face since I don’t need it for my body.

OUTCOME
ease of application: very easy – requires no experience or tools
amount needed:
 dime-sized to scant nickel-sized, depending on dryness level (face)
lasting power: 
this cream creates a moisture barrier which lasts most of the day
during use: 
instantly relieves the feeling of dryness, skin appears more hydrated, reported to instantly relieve itch (due to the colloidal oatmeal ingredient)
after use: 
my skin feels more hydrated, I did not break out
ease of removal/cleaning: 
very easy – makeup remover or soap

CONSIDER MY SKIN
shade: light/medium
tone: 
olive
complexion: 
combination
problems: 
oily t-zone, large pores (nose), uneven tone

SUMMARY
pros: doesn’t feel greasy on skin, hydration quality is great
cons: 
doesn’t contain SPF, pricey for a full-body lotion in all seasons (without a skin condition)
notes: 
there is a line of Ultra Repair products, including lip therapy and options with SPF
overall: 
for being a heavier cream, this didn’t feel suffocating on my face. you can feel the lotion a little (moisture barrier), it is smooth/soft and not oily. makeup applied over it easily.
would I buy: 
yes! for my face, especially in the winter.

I did not pay for this product, nor was I paid to review it.
