Most Helpful Positive Review This rocks- amazing find!
I'm having a hard time understanding the reviews about this having a bad smell. Like another reviewer stated, it has a grapefruity smell to it. Although you can smell the alcohol in this, if you want a straight up alcohol smell like other hand sanitizers, don't buy this. I stocked up on this when I found it in April and there was a 2 bottle limit. After I got them and saw they were legit sanitizers, I just made multiple orders throughout the weeks. I had family in CA and they can't find sanitizer anywhere. I sent them bottles of this and it was like sending them liquid gold! I can't help regretting writing this a little because I don't want this product to sell out- still have some of that scarcity fear.
Most Helpful Critical Review Smells like cheap tequila and Love Spell
I'm torn when it comes to this hand sanitizer. I like how it makes my hands feel, and I prefer gel sanitizers to the sprays, but holy cow does this stuff smell.
One person described it as similar to Love Spell from VS. I would agree with that. But it goes on initially with an extremely strong smell of cheap tequila. Now I love a good Paloma (tequila and grapefruit) but this smells closer to a dive bar well drink special. The tequila smell lessens after it evaporates, but I would like it more if the scent also mellowed out a bit more afterward. I can smell this on my hands for hours afterward.
So, I appreciate what it does and that I can get hand sanitizer from Ulta, but it feels like it came at the price of my nausea and flashbacks to college.

Smells good and doesn't dry out your skin as badly as other sanitizers.
Smells like a bad spring break night!
No thank you to this smell from Long Island nyc
Holy moly does this smell bad!! It smells like you let your drunken friends make you overly strong salt rim margaritas in your parents kitchen and it makes you wish you could die the next morning from the hangover their drinks gave you. Not lightly smelling either it smells like STRONG MARGARITA BONG WATER. I love all kinds of smells. Lately my favorites are the Ellis Brooklyn scents and even strong bath and body works and Dior scents. But this needs to be revised pronto. I couldn't even hold my cell phone to use it because my hands were to close to my face with the smell of this on theM after I tried it. It gave me such a bad headache also. Returning immediately.

Feels like you are using lotion
This does not dry out my hands
LL from Kentucky
I love this hand sanitizer. Noticed the reviews about the smell...it could be the aloe which is a little different, but doesn't bother me. Most importantly, it doesn't leave your skin feeling dry/irritated. It has been a COVID lifesaver, with all of the hand washing, my hands feel great.
JD from Hartland, MI
Many people comment on the scent of this product, but I happen to love it and so many of my friends and family love this as well. The scent dissipates rather quickly after you apply it to your hands. I love all the moisturizing ingredients in this product also. Thank you!
I can't handle the smell

The best hand sanitizer by far....

We've seen this at the vet and the doctor's office. After I used it, I HAD TO HAVE IT!! We now keep this in the downstairs bathroom. Our guests also love it snd we always get compliments about this hand sanitizer.

My hands had started to get super dry from all of the hand sanitizer I use at work. Once o started using Hempz, my hands we're getting so smooth and it smells amazing!
Smells like booze
CJ Lain from WI
This smells like tequila. I understand we had a pandemic but when it smells like booze that means they produced it in a way that does not meet standards and contains ethanol. It's not safe to use and it's going straight in the garbage.
AG20 from Kentucky
I bought this sanitizer from a different company but it is a great product. I did notice there are two different products one with a black top and one with a copper. The copper top has an awful smell! Keep this in mind!
The best all around sanitizer!
Golfergurl from MI
I tried this at my dermatologist's office and having used Hempz products before though Ulta, I ordered it right away. It smells nice and has a slight moisturizing feel. The consistency is perfect in that it stays put, doesn't run all over yet isn't so thick that you get "pilly" flecks left over. I ordered two bottles and my daughter promptly "stole" the second bottle. :0
LG from USA
I am a 1:1 teacher back in the classroom, and I am doing a LOT of hand washing and sanitizing. I also have trouble with my cuticles splitting when the weather gets dry and cool. This sanitizer not only smells GREAT, but is moisturizing, too. I fully expected to have serious troubles with cracking cuticles shortly into the school year, but have been very pleasantly surprised! It dries quickly, and never feels sticky. Bottom line, I love it! Bravo, HEMPZ!
I would buy this product again.
Bonbon from Apple Valley CA
The smell doesn't bother me and my hands are not dried out.
I keep buying this because it's great!
CaliMom from Los Angeles, CA
I find the smell pleasant and it dissipates quickly. (I'm very sensitive to scents due to migraines and this doesn't bother me.) This is the only sanitizer we have found that my husband and daughter can use with their severe eczema and psoriasis. It doesn't aggravate their skin like the others. I like it because it doesn't feel like it's drying my hands out.
This is a great hand sanitizer.

Alcohol smell evaporates after just a few seconds. You are left with a wonderful citrusy smell. Soaks in rapidly without leaving a sticky feeling and is very moisturizing.
