3.0 out of 5 stars Gawd, the stink., 12 May 2014
This review is from: 100ml Neem Oil, Refined (Personal Care)
I only ever review if a product was particularly good, or spectacularly bad.

This was actually both. I have a severe skin condition proving quite resistant to conventional treatment, so disregarded the warnings about the smell from other users. However, I actually retched when I opened the bottle and sniffed the contents - it really is that offensive smelling. After finding some (Dutch) courage (and ensuring I wasn't going to come into contact with anyone with a sense of smell in the next 24 hours), I took the plunge and applied this before bed.

The next morning I could already detect a difference in my atrophic skin condition - it was noticeably less rough, cracked and painful. But after showering the product off I could still smell it - the niff really is indescribable - and a friend commented on it over 24 hours later *blush*

The only way to get rid is to wash several times with scented soaps, thus undoing all the good work it'd done. Not only that, but the scent remained detectable in my clothes and bed linens even after two hot washes.

Regrettably, I've had to consign this one to the bin - as I'd rather not smell like an overfull one on a hot summer's day!
