Moisturizing, but too strongly scented
Posted by 5418086645542338416 on Apr 07, 2014
I'd been looking for a quality shea butter cream for my hands as I am prone to hand eczema. I was aware that this product did list some flower extracts and other extracts (frankincense and myrrh)and essential oils, so I didn't expect it to be completely unscented. However, I did not expect this cream to have such a strong smell! I use essential oils very frequently, so I familiar with frankincense and myrrh and how EOs should smell. I expected this cream to smell "naturally scented" using these essential oils and other plant extracts,but to me, it smells very "perfumy" and more like artificial fragrance. The smell lasts a long time to the point of being bothersome. Disappointed. It moisturizes well, but is too stinky to use throughout the day after hand washing. I wish they made an unscented version of their shea butter cream.
Something wrong with the scent...

The texture of this product was perfect and it was very moisturizing, but something in the smell of it was just "off" for me. It's very hard to explain, because in a way it's nice and perfume-like, but still - I can't stand it! I gave this to my mother and she loves it.

I don't like the smell! For me it smells like cheap aftershave balm for mens!
