I've bought my shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, body soap, everything really from Ethique for years, so I'm used to how their products work - but this one was just a let down! :( It doesn't smell like lavender or coconut, the only thing it smells like is lemon. SUPER overpowering lemon. I bought it because I read that dogs like the smell of lavender and coconut. *I* prefer lemon and citrus smells, but even this was too much for me. It was like pine-sol when I sniffed the bar. And I really don't think it had any effect on her hair. If anything, it actually looks frizzier and fluffier than when I use only shampoo, somehow? Which would be cute for idk a border collie maybe, but not a silky long-coat yorkie.
I do think the size was good for her, if I had bought the full-size bar I think I would've needed to cut it in quarters so I could rub it on her forehead and legs. The smell didn't linger on her much thankfully, but she also still kind of smells like a stinky dog. And the smell lingering is not lavender or coconut, she just smells vaguely of a lemon-scented cleaner/chemical. And stinky dog. :(
