A little warning would help

May 7, 2012 - Steve Murch
I just bought a bottle of Vaseline for Men extra strength. While I wear hats and and sunscreen, I still put lotion on my head after being outside. Plus, shaving my head I want to keep that irritation down as well.

I've used other products, but some of them have a perfume-y smell and others were a little too runny. I'm not a cologne wearer, so those with the perfume-y smell weren't my cup of tea. The runny ones were discovered the first time I went to use it and half the bottle came running out and into my hand. So I thought I would try Vaseline for Men extra strength.

I put it on for the first time this morning after showering. And it has a musky smell. I wasn't going to take another shower just to wash it off my scalp. Plus I didn't have the time to do it.

Hey Vaseline, you're a reputable company – how about a warning that it has a perfume to it? I've now wasted my money on a product I won't use again. It wasn't like the cost was prohibitive or exorbitant, but shouldn't there have been a warning about a musk smell?

I'm just a middle-age guy who is trying to take care of his skin, not a 20-something out at the bar looking for a little action.

Guess which product I'm, A. not going to use again, and B. which company I might not use again? There are enough products out there that put right on the packaging what's what that I'm sure I'll find something.

Now I contemplate whether or not to take a shower when I go for dinner or just sit through the smell for the rest of the day.
