Misleading Description - Try 1 before you buy 6
on June 18, 2013
There used to be a different formula of this product. On the front of the container the old formula was labed "Sensitive Skin" and below that it was further labeled "Fragrance Free". Also, the product had no scent and the ingredients did not list a fragrance.
Unfortunately the old product was discontinued. The product shown here is the new formula, which is scented. Here's how you can tell:
The label for the new formula still says "Senstive Skin" but below it is further labeled "Unscented". (Take a look at the photo above.) However, have a look at the ingredients list which is shown in the description of the product. This list includes an ingredient called "Masking Fragrance (Parfum)", and is the same list on as on my container here at my house.
Sadly, the first bullet in the description on Amazon specifically states it is "Fragrance Free" but this is not the case. The "Unscented" version definitely includes the masking fragrance in the ingredient list. (Perhaps they will change the description if enough of us report this issue?)
Having used the Fragrance Free version for at least 5 yrs, I can positively state that the new Unscented formula has a light fragrance. It is not a strong scent, but it is noticeable. It is definitely not Fragrance Free.
So if you have come here looking for the old "Fragrance Free" formula, this is not it. If that feature is important to you, I would recommend buying just one first and trying it before you buy six (unless you don't mind doing a return if you do not like the scent.)
By the way, I also find that the new formula is not as effective as the old formula. Which is the main reason I have given it only two stars. In comparison, I would have given the old formula 5 stars.
