Maybe they've reformulated this as unlike the other reviewers, I find the scent just fine - kind of baby-powder IMO. The trick is to apply a tiny amount just on the backs of your hands as it does take a while to absorb and who wants tacky palms ?
I bought it to deminish age spots on my hands about 6-8 weeks ago. So far I've used about a third of a tube and there is indeed an improvement - the age spots are less noticable and the freckles are fewer. Now I just need to find something to do the same on my face !
absorbs nicely but doesn't moisturize as well or as long as I would expect. The smell is extremely off-putting; I actually thought it had gone bad until I read that someone else thought it smelled awful. yuck.
I like a good basic hand cream that has anti-aging benefits plus a decent SPF (15 or higher)- this is exactly what it is EXCEPT it smells really gross. If I catch a whiff of it, it does a good job of making my stomach turn. Thats just too bad because I liked everything else about it.
I love this stuff. I picked it up on an impulse and have been using it religiously on my hands to combat torn cuticles and a super bad case of dryness. Awesome. It's been a week and there is a complete turnaround in the condition of my hands. I'll be keeping this stuff in my purse forever :)
