Possible allergic reaction
I honestly like everything else about this product - I like the texture (not too thick), I love the smell (being very sensitive to scents, this one didn't make me nauseous even though it was a bit strong) and it hydrated my dry skin well enough - so I'm still giving it 3 stars. The only catch is, my skin had a very odd reaction to it. The first time I used it, about 5-10 minutes after applying it all over my feet, the area started to tingle. My hands too. Basically every part of my body that had contact with the body butter started to tingle, even those areas that I had only touched with my hands but were otherwise bare. After about 30 -45 minutes the tingling became more intense and I started to itch. It was horrible, I had a hard time sleeping that night. I tried it two more times (morning after bath) to give it a chance and see if it was just my sensitive skin adjusting to the new product. Unfortunately, I got the same reaction, tingling and itching that lasted for hours. I seriously hope noone else would have to go through the same thing, and if anything this just shows how important it is to do a test on a small patch of skin first before going all out. That being said, if anyone has had a similar experience, I'd be very interested hearing your side of the story.
