This product is nothing special. Ridiculously expensive for a body lotion that doesn't provide more moisture than a cheap lotion. Neutrogena's Body Emulsion (the one is the smaller bottle not the large one) is much better, more concentrated and cheaper. Still would like to find one with no petrolatum, parabens, PEG, and not tested on animals.

This body moisturizer is great as a hand lotion. The back of my hands are thin and dry and this lotion keeps them moisturized. It does seem to have a lot of ingredients, including Butylparaben. I would rather see fewer ingredients and no parabens.

Got this as a sample with the midnight recovery concentrate. Smells odd - not like perfume or like "natural ingredients", just odd. Moisturizes but nothing special for the price, and full of random garbage (parabens, thickeners, silicates!). I'm a physician and I'm not overly hyped about "artificial" stuff but is all of this necessary in a lotion? Parabens have pretty decent evidence to be endocrine disrupters. Anyway, a "meh" lotion (just glycerin/shea or cocoa butter/coconut oil/water/essential oil is a better mix) for $$$. You may find different, but my 2 cents!

HG body moisturizer for me. I started out with a small bottle and only used it on my elbows because it was so expensive. Then I realized after about a month the lotion had completely changed the skin on my elbows from dry, bumpy and cracked to smooth and baby-soft. I sprang for the big bottle then; it's worth the price to me because it really, really works. My skin GLOWS after I use this lotion and I never want to be without it.

I'm reluctantly giving this product full marks and yes to repurchasing only because it works so well. My reluctance is shelling out the big bucks for a body lotion. I got the huge 1 litre container during Kiehl's Friends and Family sale and this will last me until the next F&F sale I'm sure, because there's no way I'd pay full price for this body moisturizer.

It is lightweight, fragrance free and absorbs well into my skin. It's ideal for the spring and summer but my feet still need extra moisture so it means using Vaseline and wearing socks at night as this lotion isn't cutting it for my tootsies. The fall/winter are cold where I live and I need a rich body cream then so I'll probably switch to Vaseline intensive body cream at that time before using up the last bit of the Kiehl's Creme de corps. (at least that's my wish)

If you've got the extra cash or it's the Friends and Family sale, I'd recommend this body lotion. Otherwise, I'm happy with my drugstore brands.

I really like this body cream. I like everything except the ridiculous asking price. It is rich, yet your skin feel so smooth and baby soft without feeling sticky. (A lot of cheaper brand body lotion feel very tacky and sticky afterward).

For the price, the ingredient isn't all that impressive, I mean... yes Squalane, Sesame Seed Oil and shea butter are wonderful, there are also thickner, preservative like Phenoxyethanol etc. They are all common cosmetic ingredienst which doesn't worth Kiehl's asking price. 1L is the biggest bottle and it cost 88$CND, it's last very long, but still doesn't worth the ingredient or the brand-image. (The brand imagine isn't as luxrious as it's sister brand Lancome *they both own by L'oreal).

Nivea body cream (Q10 or the dry skin classic one without alcohol denat) can somewhat replace this cream, it doesn't come perfectly close but at the fraction of the cost. That say, if you want to pamper your skin and you have the budget, yes definitely go for it. Your skin would love it but your wallet won't.

Overhyped and overpriced. Creme de Corps is a decent body lotion, but the results aren't mind-blowing. And $18 for a 4oz bottle is a lot.

I like that it doesn't have an overwhelming fragrance and that it absorbs quickly. No greasy feeling.

Overall this is a good product, but it's not something that I would buy again.

This product hated me more than I hated it. It's passable as a moisturizer, although I get better results from cheaper products (Avon's Moisture Therapy is great). It does not moisturize sufficiently to prevent itchy skin around my elbows. And last summer, after using this on my legs, I went for a walk and ended up with severe, ugly, itchy dermatitis on the areas of my legs exposed to the sun. Granted, it was hot out, but I've never had this kind of reaction to any other moisturizer. It took several weeks and a prescription to make it go away. Not for me.

I have tried pretty much anything and everything for body lotion and keep coming back to this. Nothing else moisturizes like it. I have strayed numerous times and wasted so much money on a ton of different products that never worked and finally ended up being tossed. Yes it is expensive, but considering the amount of money wasted trying things that didn't work (for decades mind you) it is worth it. A little goes a long way, lasts forever, and nothing keeps my stress and winter weather induced eczema away except for this. Have given it to numerous friends who have had various skin issues and this has cleared them all. I cannot, however, use it on my face or upper back as it makes me break out. Everywhere else it is perfect. I also have the lightweight Creme de Corps for summer use. I didn't give it five lippies only because of the price.

That's THE perfect body lotion! I have dry skin on my legs and this heals it! Doesn't smell artificial which I appreciate.
