Laura Mercier Verbena Infusion Gel Body Moisture

I think my arm and legs have become sensitive. I've had to change creams a lot over the course of this year because it's getting irritated quickly, rash marks and itching. Turns out things that are heavily fragranced irritate the hell out of me. So suffice to say when I received this Laura Mercier Gel Body, I was a little scared. As I unscrewed the tub, I noticed it does have that parfum scent.

Laura Mercier Say : This modern, hybrid gel-crème refreshes every inch of your body. Part gel, part crème, this light-as-air indulgence instantly nourishes skin with moisture. Natural Coconut water, crisp Verbena extract and a vitamin-rich complex work in harmony to drench skin with hydration, leaving it soft as silk.

I gave it a try and to be honest, I didn't get a reaction at that time. It's said to be good for all skin types, hydrating with a rejuvenating fragrance. With us having somewhat of an Indian Summer in the UK, (It's Autumn, I still don't know what jacket/coat to wear or if one at all) this gel moisturiser is good for those type of days as it's not too heavy and it's cooling. Honestly, the fragrance isn't a favourite of mine, it has coconut fruit juice within the ingredients list but I couldn't tell you what it smells like.

*goes to smell*
It reminds me of furniture polish if honest.

Now I've tried to use this in a few different ways, skin slightly damp, skin dried. I noted not to do it when hair has been freshly removed, the fragrance irritates my skin but with it slightly damp and allowing it to air dry it hydrates my skin better and it doesn't dry, to a dry, sticky residue but to be honest I wouldn't purchase this if given the option.
