Awful smell that I couldn't get past
Posted by Reviewer2005660 on Apr 11, 2012
Should have read the reviews better before ordering this lotion. There was NO mention about added fragrance in the ingredients list but there definetely is something added. The scent is too overpowering (musky sweet) and frankly makes me nauseos. I don't care if this works as a lotion or not, if you are sensitive to fragrances this simply is not usable.
The smell is unbearable!

I did my best but it lasts for many hours so I could not even fall asleep and kept waking up till 3am!!!
love the cream, hate the smell

This cream works, but I can't tolerate the smell. I called the company and they told me that the fragrance is a natural floral essence combination. They also told me that they added the fragrance after people complained of a "chemical smell". I am chemically sensitive and am reacting not to the fragrance but the chemical lurking beneath. I believe the culpret is the triethanolomine, which is listed under the Organic Consumers Association as one of the top ten chemical to avoid. Everything else contained in there seems safe.

I could not use this product, it has too much oder, like public restroom deodorlizer.smll gets on your cloths, towls and stays all day, smells seems gets stronger as time passes by. first night after I used this, woke me up middle of night, I couldn't breath from my nose was irritated so much from strong scent. took me three days to be back to normal. Oh by the way I bought colloids silver nose spray, that helped my nose irritation. I gave to some one who said dosen't mind smelly stuff.
The Smell was a Dealbreaker

I can't comment on the effectiveness of this product, I couldn't get past the smell! This might very well be an excellent product but the smell was so overwhelming to me I had to wash it off! It obscured the scent of any perfume I was wearing and the smell didn't fade much over time. It reminded me of industrial cleaning fluid! I have asthma as well and this product made me wheeze a bit!
smell is too strong

I gave this to my sister because the smell was too strong for me -- but she can't stand it either "I kept frantically trying to wash it off, to no avail." This is odd, since there s no fragrance listed in the ingredients. A disappointment. It sounded like a good thing, from reading the label.
