Sven's Island Skin Dip Body Repair Lotion
Bitter hippy-store smell
Bought for my mum's poor dry hands, but the hippy scent was too strong, so I bought her a different one and started using the Skinny Dip myself. Has a lovely feel that soaks in beautifully, but it really does stink. If only natural perfume lasted so long! Have to figure out what the particular fragrance is so I can avoid it! If you've changed your name to Rainbow, and you tie-die all your clothes, this is your scent.

I love this cream. It's very moisturising and calming. Also, it helps my husband to control his mild eczema.

Dislike the smell, not as moisturising as I had hoped
I was really excited to try this for my keratosis pilaris, after other reviewers commented on its efficacy. Alas, I haven't found it has made much difference over the last few weeks. I may not be using it frequently enough though because I find the smell quite strong, unpleasant and it lingers so am reluctant to put it on. I can't even describe it, it's like nothing else I have smelt. Slightly off, slightly earthy, slightly herbal? I've tried other Sven's Island products and haven't liked those smells either but think this is the worst. I find my skin is adequately moisturised but still feels dry the next day or the day after. Same as other moisturisers but they smell nicer.
I will persist until finished in the hope that my KP miraculously disappears - the only reason I would consider re-purchasing.
