I'm in love with this product. First of all, the smell doesn't make me sick, because, to be honest, my scents turn my stomach. It's the first shower gel with a "scent" of any kind that I can use. To me, the smell is very earthy, but not in a "I'm an earth maiden and I don't take showers" kind of way. Second, it doesn't dry my skin out. I don't itch afterwards, or have any rash as I sometimes do when using products. And third, I liked the shine it gave my coarse, wavy hair. I'm not the type to spend a lot of money on shower gel, but I made the exception on this one and I'm so glad I did!
