It can smell a little bad for a few days after getting the mud up - but, it is nice to work with, and the dust is low when sanding (compared to other products out there).

Works well to skim sand painted ceilings that were scraped down. I thinned it just a little bit and it laid up pretty well with a wide knife so that little sanding was needed. When you sand the dust drops quick, though it likes to clog up a sanding pole. The dust still gets into everything, but not as much as standard drywall mud. It doesn't dry as hard as standard drywall mud, but on a ceiling it's not an issue. I've used the lightweight on other ceilings, and the dust control mud works the best for easy application and finishing.
