Hi!

I use Palmers cocoa butter lotion with vitamin e. I don't find that it has a real strong smell. I used the thicker paste that is in a jar at first and then the lotion and still use the lotion. I used Mederma for about 3 weeks and didn't like the feel of it and didn't notice anything different than the lotion, except that it was about 4 times the cost!! I think scars will naturally heal well and fade if you eat healthy, drink plenty of fluids and keep the areas moisturized.

Good luck!
