I was not the biggest fan of the smell, very rosemary and herbal, but it grew on me. What I love most about it is that it heals my eczema patches on my legs and my daughter's. I know another who uses it to heal her cracked heels. It works well for chapped lips, too. I do not use it for my face, as it feels a little too emollient for me. To anyone who reacts to products, as I saw one post here, try the NYR Soothing Starflower Cleanser---it neutralizes skin reactions! I have used it on clients and it stops burning and swelling skin reactions immediately.
