I was a bit skeptical because I haven't heard of this brand before but I found it works great for my sensitive skin. There is a strong smell of tea tree oil but it goes away fairly quickly. I use it for dermatitis, rashes, eczema, after shaving too closely, etc. I find that it stops itches just as effectively as (and more safely than) cortisone creams or even benadryl. I was happy to find a product that combines Tea Tree Oil and Vitamin E in lotion form, and one that doesn't irritate my skin. I've been avoiding cortisone ointments for several years now after discovering that these type of ointments thin the skin, which just doesn't sound like a good thing to me - unless, of course, one is suffering from severe allergies or other illness or is allergic to ingredients in natural products like this.

Although this product does apply better than any cortisone cream I've used I still say, "Save your money, stick with cortisone creams!" I say this because the itch relief is very short lived and this product smells just like a musty old sock! It's nasty!

I know they could do better with the smell, if it smelt better then I wouldn't mind reapplying it often enough to keep the itch relief lasting. But once you put it on you'll never want to put it on again! After just a few minutes after application I had to put a perfumed product on to cover the horrible smell, and even that didn't help much. Eventually I had to wash it off, I just couldn't stand it any longer.

So unless they can add something to improve the smell, I suggest you stay away. I will add that I have a very keen sense of smell but even my husband who has trouble smelling anything at all smelt this and was repulsed by it.

This product now just sits there - I think of using it again since it cost so much, but I just can't bring myself to open that bottle again. What a waste...

    Comments about derma e Itch Relief Lotion, 6 oz:

    This works okay- I think you have to be diligent with application in order to see any results. Since it is all natural, you won't get the quicker results of using a steroid, but it does help at least temporarily.

    Comments about derma e Itch Relief Lotion, 6 oz:

    I've been using this on my 20 month old daughter's skin for a couple of months now. Her skin is extremely sensitive and she has severe excema. Although the scent is strong, this has been a miracle for her skin. We've tried so many different creams, lotions, etc. and this has been the best.

    Comments about derma e Itch Relief Lotion, 6 oz:

    If you're skin is itching and you feel really uncomfortable-buy this. It smells like tea tree oil in the beginning, but the smell goes away. It relives itching, you do have to re-apply. This is better then Aveno, which does animal testing.

          Comments about derma e Itch Relief Lotion, 6 oz:

          This is the best anti-itch lotion I have found. The anti-itch properties last a long time and the lotion is very soothing when applied. Some reviewers have commented on the smell but perhaps they are just not familiar with tea tree oil. I really like the natural freshness of it and the scent only lasts a few minutes whether you love it or hate it so don't let that stop you from purchasing this product. I will never be without this lotion!
