After only one day of using this I was hooked!
I was previously using the L'occitane hand cremes but they are pricey & not readily available so I tried this because its cheaper & available at most pharmacies.
Excellent hydration, non-sticky, leaves no film & smells like freshly picked peaches. Perfect.
Vichy approve this creme for all day wear even after washing your hands but I reapply after washing my hands anyway, especially in winter because I hate having my hands chapped & rough from the cold.
Highly recommended product & small enough to carry with you everywhere (if you carry a handbag of course).
sooooo rich and moisturizing and smoothing. If you have those weird scaly patches on your arms, elbows or knees this will completely take care of that. Velvety texture, no color, not much of a scent. Although I love this I only use it in specific areas, whereas the fluid I go through a ton of because I use it pretty much everywhere all the time. I find that just as smoothing, nourishing and soothing just not as thick. I think they're almost exactly the same. The fluid sinks in really well and isn't greasy. These also helped soothe my psoriasis when I had it! Amazing! I've already repurchased the fluid but the whole line is amazing! I hate the jar packaging though..
so moisterizing.......and nice fresh scent........not overwhelming like the scents from bath and body works..........although those scents are beautiful, they can be overpowering when you put it all over your body........i prefer a light scent with a perfume of your choice behind your ears and on your forearms......
Although I'm really loyal to Dove Body Silk as my year-round moisturizer, I must admit I was very tempted to buy this one ever since I tried a sample of it - the fluid lotion formula and the absolutely delicious peach scent played a decisive part on my change of plans.
After a really nice promotion came up in my local drugstore, I finally could buy a big tube for a reasonable price and give this one a real try.
It promises to keep the skin moisturized for 48 hours non-stop, which is perfect for lazy people like me, who don't feel like smearing in cream every morning, especially when you're in a hurry or just too sleepy not to skip any step on your beauty routine. Personally, I do not consider this promise realistic for the hot weather, when your skin is too needy for hydration and exposed to every kind of aggression.
Anyway, even when you can't make it last that long, it is doubtlessly a good body lotion, paraben and colouring-free and so pleasant you would be willing to put it on even in the lazier mornings. I just wish it could be on sale more often to make it my go-to product.
For starters, I must admit that I would rate most conventional moisturisers from Biotherm to Neutrogena a 1 or 2 in here, so this is actually a pretty good product in my book despite the mediocre rating I gave it. For body moisturising, I make my own moisturisers from natural oils and butters and/or just use whatever oil I have in my stash on my damp skin after showering. That is the hydration I want and what I will rate conventional moisturisers after, just to clarify.
For travel however, oil is inconvinient and I don't want airport officials to seize my homemade moisturisers, so I went through my sample stash and saw this. I was excited to see that two of my favorite oils (shea and macademia) play a prominent role in the ingredients list - alongside the usual suspects mineral oil and dimethicone of course, but nevertheless, I decided to give it a go.
I must say, it feels very luxurious, it spreads easily (thanks dimethicone) and can be massaged into skin for a few minutes or just left to sink in. It sinks in after a few minutes and skin feels supple and smooth for an hour or so, which is good on my dry skin. I kinda like it and would consider buying a tub for travelling. There's a lotion version too for oilier skinned girls.
But they could leave out the scent. It's soapy and apple-y in a kind of plasticy way. Doesn't fit the performance of this product.
