As a body wash, I do like this product. It washes very well, and it is very easy to use. But what I do not like about this product is the smell. I was not sure about trying an oatmeal scented body wash, and I was quite disappointed in it. The low cost makes this product very appealing, but I to me, the smell makes it not a good deal. If someone does like the smell, then it is a good product. But the smell is the strong negative that makes me unable to recommend this product. Effectiveness This body wash works very wells for cleaning the body. It does remove dirt well, and it is quite good on the skin. Even in the dry climate that I live in, it has never given me dry skin or any negative side effects. Scent The scent is what I do not like at all about this product. Oatmeal is an odd smell for a body wash, and I do not like it very much. It is not too strong or powerful, as some body washes can be. But it is a somewhat unpleasant scent, one that I would not normally associate with how I want to smell.
