Still my favorite, but what happened to the coconuts?
I was initially introduced to this product back in 2007 by an aesthetician. I loved how light it was, but most of all I loved how it smelled. It had this divine aroma of coconuts. I became a devoted user. Then a couple of years ago I purchased a tube and noticed that the smell had changed. It no longer had that rich, lovely coco-nutty smell. It still felt the same and went on my face as smoothly as always, but it was not the same. I called the company, GlyMed, and spoke to a woman there and asked her why they had changed the formula and gotten rid of the coconut smell. She assured me that they had not changed the formula, but that they use "natural botanicals" and so each batch was just a little different. I believed her. I figured the next tube I purchased would be better, but it wasnt. Every tube Ive bought since then has lacked that wonderful coconut smell that initially won me over. They obviously either changed the formula OR started purchasing ingredients from a different source, because it does NOT smell as good as it used to, which really bums me out. I decided to try a few other brands and found a few that were OK, but they were more expensive than GlyMed. I didnt really like them any better than GlyMed, so I switched back. I use this product every day, even use it sometimes as a moisturizer at night. BUT I WISH IT STILL SMELLED LIKE COCONUTS. Thats the only thing keeping me from giving it five stars. :(
