Anyone else encounter irritation with CF Lime? I absolutely love the way it lathers but I think I may need to stick with their Lavender scent.

Haven't tried the Lime, but the Cedar & Sandalwood burned the hell out of my face.

I like all the CF products but I did get one tub that irritated my skin about a year ago. I phoned Castle Forbes and they dispatched a replacement and when the box came it also contained nice balm and a hand soap.

Give them a call...

Do other Lime products work for you? Some people have allergies to Lime EO.

Agreed. If the lavender works for you, but the lime doesn't, you might be sensitive to lime EO. If you haven't done so, you could try a sample of another brand's lime product and see how that reacts.

Unfortunately, the only way to know if a product is going irritate you is to lather it up and apply. But if you like the Lavender and the Lime bothers you the stick with the former and PIF or sell the latter.

Maybe it is the Lime EO because the Lavender is by far my favorite cream. i have some trumpers lime soap but Im not sure that would be the right thing to use to test it.

I've never used the Trumper's lime, but EOs tend to be a little less strong in hard soaps, so if the lime EO is more concentrated in the Castle Forbes, it's possible that the Trumper's won't bother you, even if the CF does.
