it has very strong scent but I get used to it after couple of days. I don't like the smell honestly but it is so effective in healing my acne and helps fade scars so I will still continue to use it. It works after a week of using this product. A little goes a long way. I will take 2 drops and tap it on my face. do not rub. I use this day and night. My face is bright and refresh and not oily the next morning. Although I hate the smell, I will definitely buy this product again.
