I love this stuff!! It's the first gel moisturizer I've ever used, and it does have a different feeling than regular lotion. It smooths on really well and has a pleasantly cooling sensation. The scent is strong but not overpowering and it fades fairly quickly. I'm not entirely sure it works, but it seems like after about two weeks of using, it really does seem to slow the growth. And it makes my legs feel great too!
