I love scrubs but as I've grown older my skin is more sensitive and scrubs began to cause me to break out so a year ago I switched to dermalogica and was recommended this product that works like a scrub without the harshness of scrubs. It's a great product and a little goes a long way. It's been over a year and I'm only on my second tube so it is certainly worth the price. My skin feels smooth after using it and I can feel and see the difference. Totally recommend it.
I was recommended this as part of my facial regime with all my other dermalogica products and out of all them I found this to be the most mediocre of the range. It's an ok mask but I felt like it didn't do anything to my skin. I finished the tube and did not repurchase it. Instead I now use an Origin's mask from the Dr Weil range which is much more hydrating.

The first time I used this mask I felt a tingling sensation and I immediately thought oh no this is too strong for my sensitive skin. I'm glad to say my skin didn't react badly to it and that I no longer experience the tingling sensation. I use it once or twice a week as part of my facial regime and I'm happy to say that it has lasted quite a while now so it is worth the money. I've used hydrating masks before and find this to be the best. My skin is always soft and hydrated after using it. You are meant to just wipe it off with a tissue and not wash it off. I usually use it at night and there is no need for me to moisturizer after using this mask as I like to let the mask work on my skin overnight. The smell might not be for everyone but I like it as it is very spa like. This product works for me and I use it regularly.

A very luxurious and moisturizing lotion with a spa like scent to it. Absorbs beautifully into the skin and you smell like you stepped into a spa. I really love this lotion and although it is pricey I would certainly buy it again because it leaves the skin feeling soft and properly moisturized with absolutely no greasiness to it at all. I tried a bit in the shop but didnt buy it because i thought it was too expensive but when I got home my husband said I smelt gorgeous and that I should get it. So I did (with his credit card lol!!!) I don't regret buying it coz it is the best body lotion I've used And I will repurchase. Love it!!

The smell is nice enough (unlike its shower gel counterpart which I can't stand) but one thing I've noticed with body shop's body butters (and some cheaper brands) is that the cream does not fully absorb into the skin but that there are tiny flakes or bits when massaging it onto the skin. And it's not dead bits of skin (if that's what you're thinking) because when I use a more expensive luxurious brand I never have this problem. I would not waste my money on this product.
I got this as a gift and I have to say I absolutely HATE the smell!! I'm surprised that other reviews claim otherwise. Maybe I got a bad batch but the smell was just horrible and stinky. I didn't have the heart to tell my parents (who bought it) but I'll tell you here - bad chocolate shower gel.

There are only a few lip balms that warrant a thumbs up review and this is one of them. Very luxurious on the lips and leaves my lips soft and plump. It really does work. It is not a colourless balm but has a nude hint to it which I don't like so I only use it before bed time. I'm also not a fan of the packaging. I've always preferred a stick to a pot. But since it does such a good job I'm giving it 5 stars and I would definitely repurchase. A very good balm.
