A few days ago, I got chatting in the comments of another blog, discussing favorite cleansing balms.
Of course I had to mention Clinique Take the day off (Review) as my favorite. She said it was her least favorite. I wanted to know why, she wanted to know why and we both said: “Because it contains no fragrance.”
Which got me thinking. You see, fragrance in skincare is somewhere between “the devil” and “I could do without it” when you read reviews. And while I count myself to the latter category, I still want my products to have a pleasant scent.
Now I do use Sunday Riley Good genes, which smells absolutely foul, just for the sake of the amazing results, but many people won´t.
So am I being a hypocrite if I put fragrance in the “Unfavorable ingredients” category? Because I write it down, but secretly hope my products will miraculously smell nice anyway?
Jury is still out on that.
Until then let me talk to you about the Instytutum Triple Effect Peel *, which, you may have guessed it, contains fragrance.
