Not a fan
Sampled

I was not a fan of this product. Perhaps it was the texture or the scent, but something about this did not sit well with me.

Not a miracle
Sampled

This cream certainly moisturizes, but I found the smell off-putting and it was so thick that you must warm it with fingers to make it spreadable. Skip in favor of something better in my opinion!

Moisturizing, but...
Sampled

This lotion DOES moisturize. However, it has a very heavy menthol-y smell to it (it reminded me of Vicks Vapo-rub). This would be a great product if you have a cold and need to clear out your sinuses - even better if you're consistently blowing your nose and have irritated skin from it. But for an everyday type of moisturizer, no thanks! I'll stick to something a bit more pleasantly fragrant.

Don't like scent or texture
Sampled

I was very turned off by the scent of this moisturizer. I also found the texture hard to apply because it's so thick it doesn't spread easily.

Thick and not so pleasant smell.
Sampled

Is it me or does this smell like a certain brand of vapor rub? Yes, I said vapor rub....for your face! A rather thick cream for a moisturizer however I could not get past the smell. I'm passing on this one.

Tiny little wee sample.
Sampled

Hard to rate this anything better because there was so little in the sample I am not sure how effective the product was. The texture was nice and the smell was neutral. But certainly too small of a sample to use on feet or chapped elbows.

Very pine-y
Sampled

I wouldn't really call this a cream, more like an ointment. The texture is slightly sticky. It also has a very strong pine scent. You won't notice it at first, but then it comes on very strong.

Greasy product
Sampled

I found this product to be a bit thick to really merit "head to toe hydration". I put it only my face and immediately regretted that choice. It would be effective for dry hands and other areas where the weight or grease of the product is not so aggressively annoying.

all-over moisturizer, except for the face
Sampled

This is definitely more of a treatment moisturizer -- way too greasy for the face. I'll be reserving this for chapped, winter lips.

stinky

I did not like the scent of this product. I tried it a few times but couldn't get used to it.
