      Oh no, I bought the 100% Pure Coffee Bean Eye Cream the other day. At least it was really cheap if I hate it too.

        Marcia beauty info zone I hope you end up liking it. The smell is just too bad for me.

          Phyrra Marcia beauty info zone That’s what I worried about but the people who recommended it said it didn’t smell. I got it for 20% off and no shipping so at $15.60 I’m not overly concerned and it’s a review!!! LOL

      I just pulled my First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream to smell, and mine has no discernable scent that I can tell.  It fact, it is labeled as fragrance free and I use mine as an body lotion that I mix with perfume oils because it is scentless.  So, I’m a bit confused.
      Lavinala’s Healthy Face SPF made my worst of list, it was way too heavy and greasy for me, plus it left a grayish cast.  I’ve got oily skin, though, so perhaps that’s why it didn’t work for me.  Funny how different people’s experiences are, but I guess that is why there are so many products out there!

        Lulubelle107 It’s the Ultra Repair Cream with collodial oat meal. I can use it on my body but not on my face. There is a weird smell to it. Maybe mine is bad?

        LaVanila does turn my entire face into an oil slick if I don’t have powder on top, but it doesn’t irritate my skin or break me out. And for a while, it was the perfect amount of moisture. now it’s not.

          Well, your skin always looks great, so you must be doing something right!  
          Yes, it’s the Ultra Repair Cream with collodial oat meal that I use as well.  I know it doesn’t contain parabens, so it may have well gone bad.  Or you have an extra sensitive nose!  I just read another worst of list that listed it though, because it left her skin dry and flaking.

      I’m surprised by the FAB Ultra Repair cream. Mine has no scent at all, and in fact that’s why I keep it on me at work–I’m always putting lotion on my hands and I work in an open office environment, so I try to minimize the use of scented products. I’m wondering if yours is bad or something :( I personally love the cream, so it’s always a bummer to hear someone doesn’t like it.
