Pretty Feet & Hands Rough Skin Remover is NOT a lotion. If you think it is a lotion and purchase it thinking that, you will probably be disappointed. A friend of mine bought it and thought she would just rub it on her feet and her feet would be softer. But it really isn't a lotion per se. I see it more as a cream-based exfoliant. The scent is pleasant and nice. It smells a little bit medicinal, but not overpowering or objectionable. Also, you would not be using this on your face, so the scent is not quite as critical as with a facial product. It DOES remove dead skin. As I rubbed it in, dead skin kind of "sloughed" off. It is a little messy, but it does the job. I have found best results by using this product on my feet before I take a shower. My sequence is to rub it on my feet to remove rough, dead skin. Then I take a shower to wash it off. Then I use one of my favorite moisturizers and my feet really do feel softer than if I had only used my moisturizer. The bottom line on this product is that it does work to remove dead, rough skin. It just isn't ideal as a moisturizer.
