I got this as a GWP and I hate it. It doesn't absorb into my hands at all and I have to wash it off.
This is a really good product for dry skin, which i don't have.
the only thing i don't like about this product is that it kinda of makes you face look shiny after applying. Other then that it's really good, a little goes a loooonng way.
If you are sensitive to smells DO NOT purchase this product. I got this moisturizer as a GWP. It works great but it smells strong and this product gave me a migraine after using it in the morning on my lower legs only after showering in the morning and smelling it at work all day. All I wanted to do was go home and rinse off this product!
I have never had this with a moisturizer before! I do not think that I have a scent allergy and I love the non-fruity body butters from Body Shop but this moisturizer has a serious perfume-y smell that I cannot get over. So be warned!
Yes, it moisturizes but my Body Shop stuff works just as well!
I love it. It's an excellent moisturizer for my mature skin.
Naturally I love the soft feeling on the skin, but I most enjoy its fragrance. I wear it to bed; I wear it to work.
Seriously. This is an excellent workhorse to combat dryness, especially on your hands, elbows, and legs, too. This wonderful, fragrant moisturizer is ideal for the dryest of skin. It's not sticky, but absorbs readily and immediately, leaving super softness that you keep smelling because the fragrance is absolutely intoxicating.
I would definitely buy this tube (it's a gwp) once I've exhausted the supply. I highly recommend it.
I've never actually bought this product because Lancome always offers this in their gift with purchase. But I love this during the winter! I live in Canada and my skin gets super dry during the winter. I like the smell too. It's not fruity but it is sweet.
This is heavily scented but it works great as a hand cream. I keep this in my purse because its a perfect pick me up. It gives enough viscosity to provide moisture without being too greasy!
Ive been using the creme (the jar) since about april and I have noticed a huge difference. I had the scaly legs where it wasn't flaky and dry like that but you could see the dryness under the thin top layer on my legs. My legs have dramatically improved! I was using this product only a couple times a week when I lived in the ever-so-humid Ohio, but now that I'm in the dryer northern CA I need to use this once a day. I love the packaging, it looks very sleek and sort of "classic" which is so my style, and for $35 the packaging should be nice. I prefer this over the squeeze tube because my hands would slip on the tube. I like the light girly smell, but wouldn't mind if it came fragrance free.
I agree with the general consensus on the reviews. Nice scent, absorbs well. I would definitely buy again if it were less expensive. Since Lancome is owned by loreal and loreal also owns vichy and biotherm, I wonder if a similar cream is available for less money under another brand?
I'm on my 2nd bottle now, however... after carefully reading the ingredient list. I noticed this lotion contain petrolatum and paraffin. Some may argued those can help to lock the moisture, but majority of research I did declare petrolatum/paraffin aren't good for the skin. Lancome also have 2 parabens listed it at the bottom ingredient list. The good Royal jelly extract is right next to parabens... (meaning Lancome put very little amount of royal jelly in)
I still like this body lotion a lot... at least it still work 10 times better then drug store brand. (If you like Vaseline Cocoa Body lotion, they contain high amount of petrolatum... right next to water!) Relatively speaking I still think Lancome work better... but at the same time, I might wanna search for another replacement at similar price range, I took one lip off and I might get my 3rd bottle depend if I find a good replacement or not.
This is a very good quality "high end" body lotion. I got the largest bottle (400ml), the package is wonderful, pump system let me get exactly the amount I want.
- It work MUCH better then drug-store brand.
- It really soften my skin without the nasty sticky greasy feeling.
- Absort very fast!
- Good package.
- Fabulous scent!
- Lancome have 400ml size avilable, which other brandname skin-care company don't often offer larger size body lotion! Its much much cheaper if you get a larger bottle!
- Contain some of the ingredients like Petrolatum and paraffin which some people with major skin-health concerns may not like it.
- Only contain very little Royal Jelly extract.
- Pricy! *$65CND, but then again.... ALL other brandname body lotion worth around the same price as Lancome's.*
So far I enjoy using it during winter season! It does make my skin so much softer. I don't mind it irritate my neck area, as I will use my Genifique or Primoridale Night cream on my neck area instead. It is pricy, but I will definitely repurchase it as long I can afford it.
