Sweet Lemon...not. In fact, rancid and no longer made by Body Shop
on February 26, 2014
I love lemon scent so I chose this based on reputation for a Subscribe and Save pick. As soon as I opened the container I knew something was wrong. The scent was like 5 year old lemon furniture polish that had been left in the garage. It smelled completely spoiled. I tried to use a bit of it and ended up taking a shower to get it off of me. I thought about using essential oils (such as orange or grapefruit) with it but decided not to waste fresh essential oils on a spoiled product.
I contacted Body Shop and was told they no longer make this scent. They told me the container I bought was manufactured in March 2011. They said this would be their extreme end of useful product life. I have no idea what this would smell like fresh but it was intolerable rancid. I can't assess the moisturizing aspect since the awful odor would make any further trials impossible. I threw this container out and cancelled my Subscribe and Save.
