I am getting abit addicted to Kiehls products lately, although some are pricey they are great quality, work and last for ages! You should always invest in skin care ;)
I bought this and do like it. Its quite a thick creamy texture but rubs into my skin really nice. It keeps my skin hydrated allday.
The only downside i found is it can be a little bit greasy so be careful it doesnt rub off onto your clothes, so try to put it on when you get out the shower x

Picked up a small bottle of this when my eczema came back on my hands and I was getting desperate. It's amazing, my hands were almost completely healed after a few days of use. I now use it daily before and after work (I work in a medical/health field) and my hands look and feel great. I know this is not marketed as a hand cream but it makes a great one! Will purchase a big bottle next time. Only complaint is that it's sometimes difficult to get out of the bottle because it's so thick.

I was expecting more bang for my buck, especially because this product is enriched in shea butter. Unfortunately, I find this lotion to be entirely too light, especially in the winter months. I also thought this would smell natural, or like shea butter, but it has a strange smell. It is not necessarily unpleasant, but not delicious, either. This product is just average, and is below average for the price tag.

Kiehl's Creme de Corps is a work horse product for me that I use daily after showering, before going to bed. I find this works well because even though on my relatively dry skin it does not absorb really quickly, but when applying it and then putting on long pjs it does not matter and I wake up with well nourished skin in the morning. I don't think this is a particularly luxurious product, neither is it the most effective moisturizer but I keep this around because it works for me, it does not break me out and I like the packaging. It has no discernible scent, other than a faint smell from its ingredients, and the smell does not linger which I like, because it does not interfere with any perfume that I decide to wear. I buy the large 1-litre-pump bottle for $72 and it will last me close to a year. I find it pretty pricey but I have not put in much effort to find a replacement at a lower price point that I liked. If I find something similar at a better price I may reconsider, but for now I indicated that I will repurchase.

This cream was terrible. I had such high hopes for it because the SA said that it's their best seller and that everyone who bought it simply loves it. I couldn't even finish the entire bottle because of the smell and the grasy feeling. I know it's supposed to be unscented but i smelt something herbal, green, and medical. The smell also seemed to linger for a very long time which was unbearable for me. The greasiness didn't help either. So i threw it out.

I like Kiehl's but oddly, have never tried Creme de Corps, (a cult classic?). I've always been happy with my St. Ives, or for date night, I'd turn VS Vanilla Lace lotion so I just never thought about looking for anything else. So when I was gifted a 4 oz bottle of Creme de Corps for a trip, I confidently packed it away in my toiletry kit for use on the road. And now that I'm on the road, I wish I would have brought one of my regular lotions. Creme de Corps seems to sit on top of my skin the way that Vaseline lotion does, it just never sinks in and leaves my skin feeling, oddly tacky and thick-feeling, like a nasty medical balm, not silky, supple, or even feminine. People claim the lotion is unscented, but I smell it...faint glue-like scent in the bottle and disappears on the skin once worked in, the scent just adds to the the "ugh" feeling of this stuff...along with the yellow color and ugly bottle. And the cost of this stuff is not for the limited purse. Save your money ladies, Kiehl's may have a few products I love, but Creme de Corps is definitely not one I'd recommend.

Nice-ish. Creme de Corps does take a while to be absorbed into my skin and until then it is rather greasy. After that, I find the moisturising effect pretty good. It survives hand washing and that is the ultimate test, in my book. Maybe it depends on how dry your skin was to start with? I cannot detect any smell at all, and that aspect does please me because I don't like heavily scented creams. I'm happy to use up my small bottle, but will I buy again? Probably not. It's expensive for what you get, so when the time comes I reckon I'll wince at the price and go back to Palmers or Aveeno.

Awful product. Horrible smell, greasy, broke me out and to top it off stained my beautiful white linen nightie yellow. When i complained to Kiehls UK, I got an acknowledgement that said they will contact me regarding the issue yet i never heard a thing.
Vastly over-rated and over-priced.

I love this moisturizer! I live in very dry climate & after using this for only 3 days - my dry elbows were cured. Some reviews on here say it's greasy and does not absorb quickly. I noticed it's "richer" than other creams, so do allow for dry time before dressing but I haven't had any issues with it being overly greasy - I LOVE this moisturizer!

Advance warning: I have never actually paid for any of my Creme de Corps. I buy a lot of other Kiehl's products, so I usually have a coupon laying around for a free bottle with x-sized purchase.

That said, I like it. I work with sea animals, so I spend a lot of time with my hands in frigid, salt water, so they take a beating. I keep of bottle of the Creme de Corps on my desk and use it whenever I have the chance to sit down. I love that it's unscented, it makes my hands feel soft and hydrated, and it absorbs quickly (there's a residue feeling for the first five minutes or so).

Overall, if I ever do wind up having to pay for it, I probably will.
