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...

      This product is just "okay" when it comes to itch relief. The smell is just awful! I assume it is mostly because of the tea tree oil, but it is indescribably stinky. I would NOT leave the house smelling like this stuff.

            Comments about derma e Itch Relief Lotion, 6 oz:

            So, I'm one of those horrible, lazy people that rely heavily on reviews from other, more motivated shoppers, but never bothers to write my own reviews. However, after a week with this product, I felt compelled to add my thoughts to the review section.

            This product is amazing! It more than lives up to the itch relief claim. After having tried almost every natural itch/eczema product available over the past 8 years, not to mention several not-so-natural choices, I can say that this has been the most effective at keeping the itch to a minimum during those tortuous "active" eczema days. It's light, non-greasy and is very easy to apply.

            The biggest negatives I've found are the smell and the frequency of re-application required. I don't mind carrying the bottle around to re-apply as necessary (bonus that frequent re-application is OK), but the smell of the tea tree is pretty strong. Of course, it you get as itchy as I sometimes do, that smell is a small price to pay for relief and calm skin; but, if you're going to be in a situation where people will be close enough to notice the medicinal smell emanating from your body you might think twice about using it or apply well in advance of your public appearance.

              Comments about derma e Itch Relief Lotion, 6 oz:

              I have skin that frequently gets "rashy" especially my neck. I have tried cortisone products which helped somewhat but seemed to irritate my skin before any temporary results were seen. Out of desperation I bought this product from my local natural food product store and was blown away by its effectiveness. It completely soothed my skin, stopped itch or irritation and cleared my redness and rash. I gave this lotion to my friend and my daughter-in-law and they LOVE it. Great, natural product. By the way, the smell is not bad at all - it is a natural product.

              Still healing from internal radiation in lower abdominal area. Having a hard time finding any ointment I can use safely for more than 7 days or that doesn't cause more irritation. Love this product. It's soothing and I feel I can use it for the long haul. I've used other products with tea tree oil and am familiar with the smell. Don't think it's that bad and would prefer the makers not start adding any artificial chemical/fragrance.

              I apply this product immediately after I get out of the shower. I can even put this lotion on my face without greasiness or a sticky feel. My skin is so soft after application! I have the winter itchiness and this works wonders! I also love the tea tree smell.

                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.
