What's that smell??🫣

Have you ever been so excited to try a new skincare product to find the fragrance to be too off-putting? Although fragrance is very personal, here are a few of my dislikes. Despite how effective a product may be, have you discontinued using it because of the smell?

Lemon-Aid Makeup-Removing Cleansing Gel

Way too lemony 🍋

Dry/Sensitive

🍋PACKAGING - 7.5ml white tube with a twist lid. 🍋CONTENTS - Bright citrine yellow in color with a jelly-like consistency rendering a very bold lemony scent. 🍋KEY INGREDIENTS - Lemon Seed Oil, Lemon Butter, Lemon Extract, Vegetable- Derived Ceramides, Vitamin C. 🍋Benefits - Deeply cleanses with the power of Vitamin C, Removes long-wear makeup, Leaves skin feeling silky smooth. 💛IMPRESSION - I was very excited to have received this trial size because I've been wanting to add Vitamin C into my skincare regimen. Upon applying, this requires somewhat of a mixing otherwise the gel will appear separated consisting of a watery substance followed by a bright yellow jelly. I found this to have a very bold lemon scent which unfortunately reminded me of Lemon Pledge furniture polish. Once I added water, the gel lathered great and felt beyond refreshing on my skin. It removed my makeup very quickly while leaving my face feeling soft and clean. I didn't experience any irritation nor tightness throughout my skin. I would have definitely considered adding this cleanser to my skincare routine however I found the strong Lemony scent to be too overwhelming.

Yuja Niacin Brightening All-In-One Cleanser

Very effective cleanser but it has a very artificial aroma

I received this product for free from Yesstyle in exchange for my review. 🍋The Yuja Niacin Brightening All-In-One Cleanser is a hypoallergenic weak acidic formula containing Niacinamide + 11% of Citrus Junos Fruit Extract + Succinic Acid and PHA. It removes impurities and makeup while improving skin tone with a brightening effect. Recommended for sensitive skin, including blemishes- melasma freckles, post breakout marks and dullness. EXPERIENCE I was really excited about receiving this cleanser because it can be somewhat difficult to find a gentle product that can improve the look of melasma freckles. I quickly realized a little goes a long way because the texture is super gooey and thick. Although it felt very refreshing, I couldn't get past the strong citrusy fragrance especially the tangy sweet grapefruit scent. Considering it creates a great amount of lather, I had to rinse my face a few more times before my skin was completely lather free. I also experienced a bit of eye stinging which required using a wash cloth before the sensation finally went away. I decided to apply mascara and foundation to my hand to see how effective it would at removing makeup. It removed the foundation rather quickly but it did take extra effort before the mascara was completely clean. I will continue to use it only because I'm eager to find out if it will improve my discoloration despite the stronger scent.

Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion

A distinct earthy scent

I received the Mega-Mushroom Relief and Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion which included a 12 months' supply compliments of @origins as part of the 🍄Mega-Mushroom🍄 Giveaway 🍄 The Mega-Mushroom Relief and Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion contains Reishi plus Fermented Chaga Mushrooms, plant derived Hyaluronic acid and Licorice Root that helps the look of irritated skin, reduces redness while providing exceptional hydration. EXPERIENCE This lotion is quite similar to an essence or toner by providing more of a watery texture with an earthy herbal scent. I've found it to be very effective when used as the second step in my skincare routine by applying it before serum and moisturizer. I first tried applying with my fingertips but soon discovered that using a cotton ball was more effective and far less wasteful. It absorbs wonderfully, leaving my skin feeling super hydrated without becoming sticky or having a heavy feel. I do experience moderate redness due to rosacea and it does an incredible job of calming and soothing my sensitive skin, especially during flare-ups. Since receiving a few months ago, I have truly enjoyed using this amazing gift, which will certainly last throughout the year. Highly Recommend!!🍄🍄🍄
