" A great product ", 
I have just recently purchased this product from Costco. I was a little bit hesitant at first due to the price but it is worth it. I have been using a lot of acne products but the skin dryness is my major concern. After using this product for 2 nights, I noticed great improvement on my skin such as softer, lighter skin tone and reduced pores. I am totally happy with the outcomes. I have not written any product reviews before. I only give 4 star for this product since I have just used it for less than a week. I want to see if this products can help with my acne problem. I strongly recommended this product. Definitely, I will keep using it.

" Three tries, and it's a "no" ", 
I can't attest to the actual performance of this product, as I can't get past the fragrance. The first time I thought maybe I was smelling something else, so I tried again. Still smelled weird, and unpleasant. I hoped I'd get used to it and not mind it, so I tried once more. Nope.... for me, it's too off putting. Sorry. I can't even describe it, to say what it is, but I don't want to keep smelling it just to be able to describe it.

" Nice Hydration ", 
I have been using this product a while, really trying to get a feel for it in order to write a correct review. What I like about SK-II - The product is hydrating. Not moisturizing, but hydrating. When applied to face, it does give skin a little bit of a glow. Applying over makeup can help smooth out caky foundation or powder, but does not mess up makeup. I like that it can give makeup a fresh look hours later. The spray is refreshing and feels luxurious on skin, it is also very soothing. Supposedly, this product also combats damage to skin caused by UV rays and pollution, so that's pretty impressive also. What I do not like about SK-II - The smell is a bit unpleasant. Although it only smells immediately after being sprayed, it smells like feet! I am still undecided on if I would purchase this product. Although I do enjoy using it, there are other pretty great facial sprays on the market that can definitely compete with SK-II in my opinion.

" Perfect Solution ", 
This product is the perfect afternoon refresher. I suffer from dry skin and never re-apply face moisturizer after putting make-up on. This is a great solution to managing the dryness and keeping your make-up in tact. The reason for the 4/5 stars is for the smell of the product when applying.

" Afternoon Delight ", 
Ah, the well known afternoon slump...that's the best time to refresh with a little spritz. The mid-day spray seems so simple but really is a great way to get that little tszuj we all need from time to time.
02/16/2017
" Super refreshing! ", 
I was quite skeptical about this product, as I've used similar products and ended up with an oil slick on my face. I was very happy with this product. It is incredibly refreshing on my skin and is great to use midday when my skin needs a pick me up. My only complaint is the smell. I wish it was more fruity or floral.

" bad reaction ", 
This may be good for people without sensitive skin. Although I like the concept and was looking forward to using it I had a bad reaction. Itchy and caused my skin to turn real red.
02/15/2017
" Good idea, but... ", 
I like the idea of the SK-II Spray and have used similar products. I wasn't fond of the scent and it didn't have as much spray radius as the other brand I use. Even when I used it at arms length I had to use more sprays than with other brands. I'm glad to have been able to try it, but it was a one and done for me.

" Not for sensitive skin ", 
I did not care for the product it made my skin red and itchy. Might be useful for people without sensitive skin but not for me

" Let's talk about SK-II ", 
I have very sensitive skin that is also on the dry side. I tried this moisturizer hopeful to find something new to soothe my skin but unfortunately it didn't hold up. It might be fine for others but my skin wasn't happy with it.

" Great for over makeup! ", 
I love using this spray right over top of my regular makeup. It makes my face look fresh and feels amazing. Plus, it has the added benefits of being great for your skin! I spray some on immediately after I finish my regular make up (foundation, blush, eyes, etc) to avoid that "caked on" feel and look. This spray is just enough to lighten the look without undoing all the work I just did. It also helps moisturize my skin without any extra effort! Perfect for my dreary and dry winters in New England. Can't go wrong with this stuff!

" Winter love for your face in a bottle ", 
Ok, I was hesitant at first using this product. SK-II Mid Day Essence Spray, was infact a spray, so what would it do with a mid day face? I spent time appyling makeup and was convinced spraying mist on my face would case my make up to bleed and smudge. Well let my Irish, dry gas heat face say, this is relife in a bottle. I used this when I my face was battling drying with winter cold and forced hot air. I was at first tempted to over spritz, but using just one spritz provided much needed cooling and moisture. All this without changing my makeup an iota. I will say it may have ever enhanced my look because I wasn't ruddy faced. The fact that I was able to use only one spritz means this will last unlike many over the counter sub standard conterfiets. SK-II Mid-Day Essence Spray is a refreshing treat that should be in your bag, and is in MY bag. I would think based on how this goes on in a light gentle mist, that SK-II Mid-Day Essence Spray will be a welcome delight some summer time with muggy days. I will be sure to have SK-II Mid-Day Essence Spray year round.

" Mixed Feelings - Not worth the cost ", 
I've always wanted to try the SK-II brand and I was really looking forward to trying out the Mid-Day Essence spray. I've used it several times and it feels wonderful and light when you first spray it on. It doesn't make my makeup feel heavy or runny. However, the scent was awful. I thought maybe there was a bad smell coming out of my sink or something but then I sprayed the bottle onto a tissue and sniffed. The scent was enough to turn me off but I kept using it to see if I would get used to the smell. I think I got used to the scent after a while BUT I do wonder if I smell bad to other people. The spray does provide some moisture to my face right away but I don't feel any long-term effects. At the price point for this product, I would rather spend the money on something else in this skin care line that promises more results - like a wrinkle reducer or pore refiner.

" Loved the SK-II Mid-Day Essence Spray. ", 
I wasn't sure what to expect at first with the Essence Spray. I really enjoyed the way it felt on my face, the fragrance, and it was a great way to moisturize my face in the middle of the day, especially during the winter, when my skin is dry. I often need to moisturize during the day because it's dry, and this allowed me to do so without ruining my makeup. My only critique is the portability of the spray. It isn't easy to keep with you on-the-go- I'm usually out and about in the middle of the day and cannot bring it with me. Otherwise, I think it's great!
02/15/2017
" Smells great, broke me out ", 
I wanted to love this product. It smelled good and left my face very soft. First week I started breaking out. I took a break to see if it was that and the product and then my face broke out again.
02/15/2017
" SK-II Mid-Day Essence ", 
I love this product! It is light and refreshing. I spend a lot of time in an office staring at a computer screen. I like to use this as a nice refresher in the afternoon. It's also great after a workout; I can use this in place of a moisturizer after my gym shower! Love it!

" Such a refreshing spritz to my day!! ", 
I am loving the SK-II Mid-Day Essence Spray! I have been using it every afternoon and it truly refreshes my skin. In the afternoon, my make up is looking dull, face is feeling dry (especially in these winter months) and it's a perfect spritz of moisture. Definitley noticing a glow and just sense of re-newed energy from using it. Smells great too - perfect to leave at my desk and spray in the early afternoon to get me throug the rest of the day!!

" SK-II Mid-Day Essence Spray ", 
SK-II Mid-Day Essence Spray feels light and airy on the skin which is nice but I still feel like I want to rub it in after spraying on my face. It's nice there is no smell of product though so it’s doesn’t give of a strong perfume smell if you work in an office environment and use it midday. Beware where you at when you are spraying this moisturizer on though because it leaves a spray dusting everywhere and it's hard to clean up the oily mist. It’s a nice little midday pick me up though but something I would never normally buy as it’s not really a necessity of my daily routine.

" Softest skin ever! ", 
I have to admit, when I first got this product I was skeptical, especially when I saw the price. You just spray it on your face over your makeup? That seemed too easy. I thought spraying water on my face would have the same result. But I got it free to try, so I was committed to trying it for a few weeks before I made up my mind. First of all, it does spray nicely. Spraying yourself in the face doesn't really sound pleasant, but it actually feels really refreshing. I keep it with my during the day and spray it once or twice a day whenever I think about it. It takes two seconds and you don't have to rub it in or take your makeup off. I sometimes get a bit lazy about my skincare routine, and there is literally nothing easier than this. As much as I didn't expect it to actually work, to my surprise it absolutely does. My skin is dry and flaky and sandpaper-y in the winter no matter how must moisturizer I use. After a week of spraying the essence on my face, it was changing the entire texture of my skin. My skin got much softer, the flakiness was gone, and my skin feels smooth and hydrated. I keep running my hands over my face, because I can't believe the difference! I don't know what kind of magic is in that bottle, but I'm sold. I couldn't have been more skeptical in the beginning, but I can't deny that my skin looks and feels better since I started using it. There may be other products out there that make your face feel soft, but being able to just spray this on whenever I think about it instead of keeping to a strict skin care ritual every morning and night to get results is what makes this product extra special. Just spray and go!

" Lovely Glow! ", 
I've been using the SK-II Mid-Day Essence Spray for about two weeks now and it really hydrates my skin and leaves me with a glowing, radiant look! My skin is so soft after using it and it doesn't mess up my makeup at all. I've tried Rose Water sprays before but I like this one better. I'll be flying soon and my skin usually gets really dry with air travel. I'll be bringing my spray with me to use post flight! Great product!

" SK2 review~ ", 
Gotta say was quite exited when my Sk2 spray arrived but the scent was quite unbearable so it really made it quite hard to apply but I gave in. It didn't really do much to make my skin any better, hoping Sk2 does something about the scent perhaps making multi-scent flavors to choose would be better.

" Mixed reviews - not sure it does much ", 
I've always wanted to try the SK-II brand, and I was really looking forward to using the Mid-Day Essence to see what it would do for my skin. I've used it a few times thus far, but haven't really noticed any differences in my skin. It does provide some moisture to make-up/skin that has dried out during the morning, but I don't see that it does anything for the skin below. The mist smells nice and doesn't leave any visible residue. It is easy to use, and the bottle is well-made so the cap won't pop off in your purse during the day. Net-net, the product is nice enough, but I'd probably invest in some other component of their skin-care line that provides more dramatic results.

" SK-11 Review ", 
I tried the SK-11 for two weeks.. I didn't notice a change of any sort with my skin.. It felt great to mist the product on my face, but that was the extent of any effect I felt it had..
02/07/2017
" Really makes a difference ", 
This product is actually a really great idea. Mid day moisture?? Um yes please. I've been using this once a day mid day. No not just at lunch time. Any time in-between morning and bedtime. Doesn't matter. And it goes on great over make up. I've noticed less problematic dry areas since I've started using this. AND I haven't noticed any new or worsening acne. It doesn't smudge your makeup either. Not oily either. Spritz sprits. Fan your face and move on.

" Refreshes Your Skin But Not Much Else ", 
Having dry skin I was excited to try SK-II Mid-Day Essence. The product claims to hydrate your skin and maintain your skin's morning look. The product comes packaged in a frosted plastic bottle with a spray top. The spray itself is a unique super fine mist and has a clean and natural scent. I used this in the morning before I put on my make up. I love the fact that I can spray this on instead of rubbing it into my skin. When first applied it made my skin feel completed refreshed and clean. I also love the fact that you can use it over your make up and it doesn't ruin it. I used it several times in the middle of the day and my skin once again felt refreshed. One of the things I disliked about the product is that I had to spray it several times to cover my whole face. I feel like the bottle will not last very long. I was hoping that this product would moisturize my skin as well as refresh it. I was disappointed to find that while it made my skin feel fresh and clean it did not moisturize it like I had hoped. If you are looking for a product to make your skin feel fresh and clean then this is the product for you. If you are looking for a moisturizer then I would not recommend this product.

" SK-II Mid-Day Essence Spray ", 
My skin complexion is normal/oily combination. I take care of my skin using both toner and moisturizer twice daily as well as SPF everyday. I have smooth complexion but I tend to get oily in the afternoon. I didn't know what to expect when I received the sample but I was very interested in keeping my skin hydrated and refreshed. I was afraid it will make my face shiny. I used it mid day over my makeup for over a week. I used about 4-6 spritz each time. First thing I noticed when I used the spray was the smell. It had musty smell that was not pleasant. It went away quickly. I had dewy face after initial spray. It also went away quickly. It felt light weight and it did not make my face shiny. I have not notice any difference in my skin using the spray. Maybe overtime I might be able to. I would purchase the product if not for the smell.
02/07/2017
" Not for me ", 
I wanted to LOVE this product, but my skin is more oily/ normal and not dry, so it seemed to make my skin worse. I think it would benefit someone with dry skin. I also didn't care for the smell of it.
02/07/2017
" Mid-Day Essence Spray ", 
I have been using this product for a couple weeks and I really see and feel a difference in my skin! I carry the bottle with me and whenever I feel like my face is feeling a little dry, I spray the SK-II Mid-Day Essence Spray on my face ( closing my eyes.) the spray feels nice going on and is not a huge stream of liquid (it's more like a mist.) It really makes nut face feel smooth and very moisturized. The most important thing for me is that it doesn't make my makeup run (it's designed to be applied on top of your makeup) and it helps to keep it from rubbing off. The scent is not overpowering either, it's a very light floral scent. I really like using this SK-II Mid-Day Essence Spray!
02/07/2017
" SK-II Mid-Day Essence Spray ", 
I received the SK-II Mid-Day Essence Spray and tried it every day over the course of a week. Unfortunately I have a Normal/Oily skin skin type and this product was just not for me. I tried at various times of day throughout the week and found that it made my skin look very oily and did not sink in to my skin at all. Disappointed - I was hoping this product would be great. :(
02/07/2017
" silky smooth skin ", 
My initial thought was that I do not like the smell. This isn't the typical facial moisturizer as it's a "spritz" so I wasn't sure why to expect. It has a very strange odor-I think feet when I smell it...yikes- but I guess it's more of a musky scent. The scent doesn't last but a few seconds so if you can get past that, it's a great product. I found it left my skin feel silky. It's extremely light weight which is also much different than the typical moisturizer and it dries very quickly. I haven't tried it over makeup just simply "spritzed" after bathing. My skin is normal tI dry especially during the winter months so this was a welcome. The only downfall is the scent however if you're looking for fragrance free this is perfect!
02/07/2017
" Facial spritzer more than moisturizer ", 
I love trying new things, but to be honest, I really don't understand the purpose of this product. It is marketed as this great facial moisturizer, but it didn't seem to do much more than spritz my face. I do not tend to have dry skin, so maybe this product is not going to give me results like others, but I really felt no difference using it. It was akin to spritzing my face with a fine mist, which is refreshing, but I otherwise felt no different and noticed no change in my skin. seems an unnecessary product
02/07/2017
" Great hydration, but doesn't smell good ", 
I've been using this product during the day for a rejuvenating pick-me up. It actually makes me feel more awake and it leaves my skin feeling hydrated. You can use it over your makeup and it doesn't affect the makeup too much.....it just makes your face look brighter. I think this product would be better if it had a more pleasant scent, other than that it seems to do exactly what you expect.

" Amazing Skin Quencher ", 
As a makeup artist and makeup lover I'm always looking to try the latest and best products on the market for me and my clients, moisturizing products, setting sprays and spray serums are always on top of my list to achieve a flawless application, appearance and durability. This product has such a fine mist that it doesn't disturb your makeup and it penetrates your skin. I use it before makeup to prep the skin and after makeup to refresh it and keep the skin with a dewy and healthy appearance during the day. I have dry sensitive skin and it helps my skin feels fresh and look moisturized after a couple hours, it doesn't irritate my skin. It has a slight scent to it that I don't care for. It is a high end product and not for everyone but I normally splurge on makeup and skin care so I belive I would buy it again. The reason I'm taking a star away is due to the lack of information on the packaging, it has no claims and many people wouldn't understand what this product is for. After one week of use My skin is softer and less dry, I live in Puerto Rico and we have hi temperature and humidity, this is so refreshing and helps my meakeup last longer I can't say enough good things. Thanks SK-II for an amazing product . Attached a picture of my makeup after 6 hours.

" Very Nice Face/Makeup Spray ", 
I had seen this in my local beauty store, but always shied away from it for a few reasons...but mainly it was the price tag threw me off. So I was really thrilled to try this. And I am quite pleased. I have been using this spray for over a week now, and I have almost all good things to say! First, it sprays so fine and evenly! Ia few mists will cover your entire face, and the bottle doesn't get clogged, which is great (and it's a nice size bottle, but also travel friendly). I also did not have any kind of irritation, which I am always concerned about, because my skin has a mind of its own. One week, it's an oily mess, and the next, I have dry patches! Lately, I have had a lot of dry skin because of the really cold weather here, and the heat running non stop at my home and office. I felt like this spray allowed my foundation to not get patchy or flaky throughout the day. Somedays, I work 12+ hours, and my makeup looked fresh. I throw the bottle in my purse and will do a quick spritz during the day, and it just feels SO refreshing and amazing on my skin. The only negative, but a somewhat bigger one for me, which is why i took away a star, is the scent. I am super sensitive to scents. I have allergies and asthma, and a lot of scents I find very unappealing, and this is one of them. I just do not find that I enjoy the scent...HOWEVER, the positive thing is that the scent does NOT linger on your skin, and after about 10 minutes, I can no longer smell it. I just tried to hold my breath while I am spraying it :) All in all, I am a fan of this products. I have to see how to helps my skin long term, if I am willing to splurge, but so far, it's been a very nice product!

" Needs Better Marketing ", 
When I first opened the box, I was really unclear as to exactly what SK-II was. However, I followed the instructions on the bottle, and quickly realized this is a miraculous product. I know of no other moisturizer that can be applied over your makeup without disturbing the makeup at all. For someone like me with incredibly dry skin, this product is revolutionary. I can't believe I've never seen an ad for it anywhere; the manufacturer should be shouting from the rooftops about this!
02/07/2017
" I still don't understand what essence is ", 
When I first opened the package I was excited because it's sleek and fancy looking. It looks like a perfume bottle. I searched the box and the bottle for directions to explain what exactly an essence spray is. There are none, it just says to spray on your face. For what? I googled reviews and read a few blog posts to try and understand exactly what the product was supposed to do. After spending 30 minutes I finally deduced that it's just supposed to feel nice. Well, it does feel nice to spray on your face. I just expected it to have some kind of benefit, which apparently it does not. It is not moisturizing, nor did I notice any difference in my skin appearance or luminousness or radiance. It just felt like a spritzed my face.

" Pros don't outweigh the cons ", 
I work in an office where the air is super dry, and refreshing sprays are always such a nice pick-me-up during the day. This one wasn't. It feels pretty good going on: the spray is very fine and it doesn't end up feeling sticky. But that's it. It's fine. The cons are that it feels a little filmy and that it stiiiiiinks. It has a mushroomy/wet dog odor that is really unpleasant when it's sprayed right at your nose. I appreciate that they're not using perfumes, but there are plenty of natural and refreshing products that could have made this smell better (cucumber? chamomile? mint?). I can't use this enough to even see if it has lasting skin benefits. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Easy to Use ", 
During winter, my skin gets extra dry. I will put moisturizer on twice a day at times for my face to feel normal. I use SK-II in the morning, over my makeup, and it makes me skin feel better. The product is heavy, does not make my skin appear oily, adds a lay of moisture, and no scent. It helped my makeup last longer and my face to feel much better. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Instant moi5 ", 
I tried the mid day essence spray. I after spraying it, I noticed immediate moisture. My face isn't too shiny and my face doesn't feel sticky. It's like spraying water on your face and it absorbs pretty quickly. Those are before and after. I can see this as a great product for those that have dry skin. I don't wear much makeup, but I will be trying it this week to see how it works with make up. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Light and easy application ", 
So after receiving this product I quickly washed my face with a somewhat drying antibacterial bar of soap to test the moisturizering ability of this product. So I spritzed a hefty amount of the solution on to my clean face and let it dry. While it dried I squirted a few spays on to my fingers and I could certainly tell that it did contain a light moisturizer. After letting the product dry it felt very light and my face was less tight from the effects of the harsh soap I used. I've heard a few people complain about the smell but it did not bother me at all. You can simply tell the there is no added fragrance and it basically had almost a cosmetic scent. Now to give you some background on my skin type, I do have a bit of a T-zone that can get quite oily throughout the day especially with heavy makeup. Also, I use a fairly expensive face crème that can be a bit too oily when I apply full coverage makeup. Knowing this I did apply just the SK-II spray before a full coverage makeup routine and I do believe that it kept my face powder in place longer where with my regular moisturizer would of had my makeup sloughing by then.

" Refreshing! ", 
My best friend is obsessed with beauty and lives in NYC. When she started misting her face with an essence spray, I thought she was crazy! I received this SK-II product and I get it now! A light and delicately fragranced spray leaves my skin feeling airy and refreshed. I will carry it in my bag and spritZ myself anytime I feel my skin getting a little dry and tight for a delightful moist refresh! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I admit, I was super skeptical of this SKII product at first. I'm supposed to....point this thing at my face and spray it on purpose? And it's not going to ruin my makeup? Are we sure about this? I mean, I know these SKII people know their stuff but..... After this internal monologue, I stood in front of my the mirror prepping myself for a blast to the face (you know the look, where you scrunch your hole face in fear...)....but lo and behold, it was awesome! refreshing! Definitely more like those fine mists amusement parks have to cool you down than a low pressure shower head. And the make up? it stayed looking just as good as before. Not so refreshing? The smell of this product. It definitely smells more like a craft brewery and I admittedly felt self conscious about using it at work. Would coworkers think I'd be drinking on my lunch break? Even I thought I smelled a little more frat-like than I would like. It's definitely a lot stronger smelling than the essence, which I like to think means it's more "concentrated" with goodies, but at the same time, I would prefer if I didn't hate the way I smelled for the next 10 minutes (good news: the smell dissipates after 10 minutes). That said, the product results are worth suffering through the possible side eyes at work. My skin felt so dewey and soft for the rest of the day. I actually look forward to my midday spritz!

" Feels great, scent is horrible ", 
SK-II MID DAY ESSENCE is beautifully packaged and looks very high end. It is very easy to use and the sprayer works very well and sprays a fine mist and doesn't drench your face. I have used this on days that I go make-up free & I have tried on the days that I wear a full face of make-up and it seems to do well without leaving my face sticky. The only bad thing I need to say about this product is the scent. I would expect a spray to smell fresh or more floral but, this product's scent smells very herbal and is the only thing that would hold me back on purchase.

" Feels light but smell was a turn off ", 
I like the way the mist/spray felt. I threw it on right after my moisturizer and it felt light on my skin and was absorbed instantly. The smell is something i wasn't expecting for such a high end product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Moisturizes well, funny smell ", 
The SK-II Mid-Day Essence Spray provides a nice mid-day pick me up. I work long hours, so this product is great for providing a nice pick-me-up. I sprayed it on over make up and it was nearly instantly absorbed. My only complain in that there is a bit of a musty smell, although it goes away pretty quickly. The spray itself is a very dense mist, so the bottle will not last long. After three days I had used approximately a centimeter of the product. I recommend this product to someone who is on the go all day and looking for a quick pick-me-up for their skin. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Refreshing Daytime Routine ", 
I'm a busy working mom and I found this SK-II Mid-Day Essence to be a nice touch while I'm running from work to pick up the kids, make dinner and run out to volunteer or go to the gym. It's small enough to tuck into your purse or jacket pocket. It gives your a cool, refreshing pick-me-up when you have a second. It's supposed to "hydrate", which I think it does. But it helps as a "wake-me-up" too. I feel like it locks in my make-up, and maybe helps it last as I'm running around. It feels luxurious and fancy.

" Initial reaction- eh. ", 
Initial reaction- Took a few pumps to get spray working the first time, which isn't too concerning because sometimes that happens with sprays. I think it's foolish to market the product as "mid day essence." My face does not get dry mid day, but rather is usually oily mid day due to the stressors of the day. Instead, I used it after my shower which was first thing in the morning because the hot water tends to make my face feel dry. Therefore, if I saw the product in the store and didn't know what it was, I would probably not even look at it since I don't need a mid day face moistener; they're limiting their potential clientele. I do NOT like the scent at all! Definitely turns me off from the product and makes me hesitant to want to use it again; however, I will continue to give it another chance. Maybe I just have to get used to it. But, I would have liked if it had more of a "fresh" scent instead of a foul smell. I wish the directions said how many sprays to do. Is one spray enough? Should I do more? As of right now I don't think I'd purchase it nor recommend it to a friend, but I am anxious to see if after continued use if my opinion changes.

" Good Mid-day Pick Me Up ", 
This product is definitely designed to be a luxury "treat yourself" item. I like it because it's a pick-me-up in the middle of the day. The spray function has a premium feel. It's got a wide range & also sprays very evenly. This product doesn't mess up makeup and does not have a sheen afterwards. Formula feels light and is not meant to be a moisturizer. If you have dry skin and need to rehydrate heavily throughout the day, this is not for you. Didn't feel like it improved my skin, but definitely maintains it.

" SK-II hydration ", 
Just a quick spray after my late day workout and my skin is feeling refreshed and hydrated. It has a more natural light scent to it, as well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
