As for the application itself, the formula instantly sinks into my skin without leaving a greasy film. It also has no overpowering scent, which I always appreciate in a leave-on product. If you’ve ever tried Indie Lee’s Brightening Cleanser (also a winner in my book), you likely noticed its sweet strawberry aroma. That’s because it contains strawberry seed oil, which leaves a much stronger trace than the extract. I love that invigorating scent for a wash-off product, but I’m very picky about any lasting fragrance on my skin. It’s not that my skin can’t handle it; my nose is just way more sensitive. So I’m happy to report that this cream leaves no lingering scent; one reviewer says it “smells powdery clean,” and I wholeheartedly agree.
