Not for the faint of heart

By now you probably recognize that I love products with a great scent. With body washes like "red velvet cake", "carrot cake", and "mimosa" just to name a few, Philosophy has really created a line of products with authentic scents. When you use their products, there is no doubt that you will leave your bathroom smelling like decadent baked goods. I really liked this yummy product, until I happened to read the "caution" section of the label as I was trying to locate the list of ingredients.
I am used to seeing, caution "keep out of eyes", or caution "please do not ingest" but I was appaulled as I read caution "excessive use or prolonged exposure may cause irritation to skin and urinary tract." There is no explanation of what they consider prolonged use, does that mean using it everyday or using it more than once a day?
Now if I am overreacting please let me know, but I have never seen this type of warning on a bottle of body wash. Although I really enjoy a sweet scent, I can do without the threat of urinary tract irritation looming in my mind.
*Please note that not all Philosophy body washes have this warning so check your labels.
This urinary tract treat is sold in a variety of sizes and prices ranging from $6.00-$30 from http://www.philosophy.com/ or Sephora.

I've never used Philosophy bath products (though I want to), but I have read that using heavily scent body washes for long periods of time (once a day, everyday for a month or more) can cause the pH of one's intimate area to change and this can cause problems. Maybe that's why they have that warning.
