Definitely does it's job without leaving me with a greasy layer of grossness. Since I am a flyer (cheer affiliated) I definitely cannot wear oily lotion so before I would just leave my legs ashy so I would not risk slipping while stunting. This lotion is PERFECT for me aside from plain scent which I do not mind. It definitely does it's job! Scent Plain, but I do not mind... That's what perfume is for! Absorption Not oily/greasy; leaves my skin as soft as a baby's butt Effectiveness Just buy it!
