I'm quite romantic about retro stuff. I love the tin packaging of this creme. Sadly, I cannot fool myself! It does nothing for my skin. I do not dare using this on my face as I have combination skin. But on my hands and body it just leaves a thick layer, does not absorb easily and it's way too greasy. Once it is worn off my skin, the result is as if I have never put the cream! I guess there are better performing creams out there...
I think this is the crappiest cream I've ever used. It's very greasy and the ingredients are all chemicals. There is nothing in this cream that's beneficial for your skin. I think alot of people gave it good ratings cause it's affordable and cheap but otherwise there is much better creams out there. It did nothing for my skin other than make it oily and I don't have oily skin, I have combination skin with drier cheek area. It also made my skin feel sticky and waxy which I really didn't like. I do not recommend buying this cream at all.
i apply this at night and wake up with super soft skin. it's extremely thick, so it's hard to rub in (which is why I only use it before bed), but when it dries, your skin is so soft and moisturized. my legs also seem like it has a soft glow, or maybe i'm just hallucinating. the scent is nice and soft and this is inexpensive and comes in many sizes, i'd repurchase. This is so inexpensive and should be a staple in everyone's collection.
Great moisturizer for your body but definitely not something you can constantly apply to your face, it's very greasy.
I love this creme. its my HG. i bought the 6.8 oz ( with 2 more in stock ) to keep in my house. while i keep the 1oz in my purse ( i also bought like 5 of these little suckers ). Love love love love love this product. i cannot stress it enough. I absolutely love thick creams and this is by far the thickest. When you apply it, you have to really rub it in because it is so thick. But when it does, it keeps you moisturized for the longest time. absolutely amazing. will keep buying until the end of time . hah
I love this. I use it as a body moisturiser as I would be worried it would be too heavy for my face. First of all it smells lovely, so comforting. It is very thick and a little hard to rub in at first but as it warms up it gets much easier. I put it on at night and wake up with lovely baby soft skin. The best bit is though even though it is thick it doesn't leave a horrible heavy greasy texture on the skin!
My mom is in her late 50's and doesn't have a single wrinkle on her face. Now, obviously there are other reasons why (e.g., she rarely wore make-up, never EVER laid out in the sun or tanning beds, genetics, etc.). But ever since I was little I always remember her using this after a shower on her face and neck. I know that it may not be formulated for the face, but if your skin can tolerate it, I say use it. After months of trying tons of moisturizers and spending WAYYYY too much money, I thought: "Why not try what my mom has been using for years?" So I did. And I have to say, I'm pleasantly surprised. I only use it at night, after a shower when my skin feels dry. The trick is to put it on your fingertips and rub a bit to warm it up BEFORE applying it to your face. Its very think and needs to be warmed up a bit otherwise you'll be stretching your skin trying to lather it on.
It is heavy and full of moisture, but at night before going to bed, I actually like that feeling. Other moisturizers I tried would feel good on the skin for 5 minutes then disappear and I'd go back to feeling dry. I love how thick this is and how perfectly smooth it makes my skin feel. I have pretty sensitive skin and so far this hasn't caused any problems.
Not saying this is for everyone, just wanted to share my experience with it. May be worth it to give it a try as a night cream?
I like this product a lot. I've never used this product on my back--mainly because I don't need to. My back generates its own oils, without clogging pores and I don't want to change that. So I use it on my legs (after I shave) and on dry skin patches on my legs. I also use it on my forearms.
I think they could be a little more innovative on the packaging though. Packaging means a lot when selling a product.
Let me start off by saying, I have SUPER dry skin. Not even joking. I have had to apply at least one full bottle of Lubriderm lotion to get my skin to stop itching..a week. Then, I found out about this. AMAZING STUFF. My knees& elbows were literally black,itchy& tight all the time. I use this when I take a shower, and at night on my knees & elbows. Softens them like a dream(: even better then TBS body butters& B&BW body creams:) MUST BUY. I have stocked up on this now, around 5 6.8 oz bottles. AMAZING. RAVE. continued >>
this is a great moisturiser and hand cream and such great quality for such an affordable price! definitely recommend!
