No, I Don't Think I Want to Smell Like That, Thanks.

I picked up a bottle of Burt's Bees Naturally Nourishing Milk & Shea Butter Body Wash recently while I was at Target, and considered myself extremely lucky because not only did I find some, but it was on clearance! Perhaps this should have given me pause.

Honestly, every time I use this, the smell reminds me of the scent they use at the Rest Area on I-95 heading towards Washington DC. And while it's not an unpleasant smell in a public restroom, it's not what I want my body to smell like. It's a very strong, artificial smell, and somewhat difficult to describe. Obviously, I was very disappointed, since I never hear anything but good things about Burts Bees, but it makes me hesitant to try anything else. Perhaps I just have a sensitive nose.

Have you tried this? Is it just me?

I know EXACTLY what you mean. I find that a lot of Burt's Bees products have that weird smell....

Nurseexec, I am so glad it's not just me. I know everyone raves about Burt's Bees, but I just haven't had much luck with them. Even their Honey Lip Balm that is currently on my nightstand just has a bit of a funky smell. It's borderline acceptable.
