Body lotion, something I have oodles of and seldom use.
Why? It is as simple as I am lazy and I find the whole task laborious. Extreme. Yes probably.
However last week due to a self tan addiction (again I am exaggerating) I noticed that the skin of my arms was looking rather reptilian, time to bust out the big guns and give my bottle of Kiehl's Creme de Corps a whirl.
The first thing I want to hammer home is the fact that Kiehl's Creme de Corps is unscented, this might not be to everyone's taste but personally I enjoy unscented body products as they don't interfere with my perfume choices throughout the day. It also makes it truly unisex. The texture is thick and buttery, it quickly absorbs into the skin, is non-sticky nor greasy and is as light as can be. Yet it moisturises the skin on my body like no other and it can be used on my eczema too. As soon as I apply it my skin feels supple, instantly softer and it soothes any irritated and inflamed areas of skin. Can I get a hallelujah. As mentioned I had extremely dry skin on my arms which was all but gone within two days of daily application of Kiehl's Creme de Corps - I apply after my morning shower and before I go to bed. In all honesty if you have normal skin one application would be more than enough and due to the thick texture approach with a less is more attitude.
As you many know Kiehl's Creme de Corps is a best selling product of cult status and that is due to the formulation which includes the finest of ingredients such as shea butter, olive, sweet almond and sesame street oil, avocado oil and apricot kernal oil. All known to soften and renew the skin. Yes Kiehl's Creme de Corps is not cheap but sometimes great products come at a cost (my bank balance often weeps) and this is one of the few expensive body products I not only rate but would purchase time and time again. The only body lotion I have ever felt that is not only worth the hype but the cost.
