My Thoughts:

The gel is clear, thin, and has no discernible scent; which, surprises me a bit after reading the ingredients- a lot of fruit product in it! 

I found the product extremely easy to run in, it was nice. But, I don’t think it is anywhere near worth $52. I have a product the Mel from Mel’s candles makes that gives me the same results and it is only $4.50! Unfortunately, I can not find it on her website. 

I am giving this product 🐘🐘🐘 out of five elephants. It’s a good product, but not worth the price and I will not be purchasing it.

Thank you so much for reading!
