Horrible lingering smell

I have tried using this on my leg & arm. Also tried on my face. I asked PC via email and they told me the product is totally suitable for the face too. The different between this and the face version (I never use or seen) is the concentration of ingredients and texture etc they wrote.

No break-out caused by it, but it smells horrible, like strong industrial chemicals. It reminds me of new cheap plastic toys or new car being left half a day under hot sun and then you spray cheap perfume/freshener to mask the smell! It is extremely strong, very unpleasant and it last for 4-5 hours at least! It is marketed as fragrance-free, but I think this is misleading because the fact that they add no fragrance-focus ingredients is far different from the fact that many of the ingredients themselves have very strong scent. The smell is caused by "the combination of ingredients together", as answered by PC's representative over online chat when she refused to give any details on which main ingredients caused the smell (proprietary right) so I don't know what to avoid in the future. I wish I know because I am very sensitive to smell. Well, by boyfriend is not that sensitive but he also complain that it is too strong and annoying.

I suppose that this is a trick for PC to sell this for use on the body, because people would not be able to endure the smell on their face. Many others also said to buy this to have a bang for their buck compared to purchasing the face version, but it turned out to be a waste because of the smell. So sad that I cannot use it as I would like to.

About the effect, I'm not sure if it helps me with the blackheads or exfoliation because I stopped using it after 3 trials. I will try again later and see. But beware guys and girls, it really really smells!
