As an avid La Mer fan, I was rather happy to learn about a new product but slightly disappointed at the same time. There was nothing wrong with how the product worked. In fact it worked perfectly fine removing makeup and stubborn waterproof mascara. Rather, I was taken aback when I initially took a sniff of the fluid. It reminded me of my oil point remover. Well, this really gives a new meaning to removing "War Paint", aka my daily makeup. With other La Mer products, I will say the scent can usually be described as pleasant, organic, or fresh. Well, this one sure is the exception. I asked other gal pals and they all agreed about the unpleasant scent. Although I like the product, I am not sure I want my makeup remover to smell like oil point remover/thinner. It is just unsavvy. Do you have a good oil base makeup remover to recommend?
