I've used Alima products in the past and have loved them, so I was really excited to purchase this (even though it wasn't a product I had sampled). Plus I love birchbox and trust their product judgement wholeheartedly.
The texture is a little gritty, which I can deal with, and the color (mango) isn't super flattering, but I'd still probably use it if it weren't for the smell. After applying, I instantly wiped it off assuming that the product was expired. The scent is putrid (it's the chocolate one). I LOVE chocolate and am not picky about flavors, so I'm not sure what the issue is. I checked the date, and it's not expired, so I'm almost wondering if (since it's a natural product) it could spent too much time outside in the heat. Who knows. Either way, I don't recommend it! I'd return it if it I hadn't thrown away the original packing slip.
