Hey lovelies, Now I'm a sucker for Kiehl's. And I hate to admit I fall for their 'non advertising' every time. Just show me a sale assistant in a white coat, who must know what they are talking about, and products thats don't have fancy packaging. This just shows to me Kiehl's focus on the quality of their products, not marketing. This week I picked up some sample sizes at my local concession, and I just couldn't resist sharing them.
Kiehls Creme de Corps Original from £16
Crème de Corps is ah-mazing. Just to put it simply. There is no other way to describe this bottle, it's so gentle, yet has helped with some of my mild eczema and dry skin patches on my body. Absorbing easily and quickly is an understatement, its literally feels like I've put nothing on, yet my skin feel like I've bathed in milk. I would say within 10-15 days my skin was much much softer. It also smells natural, like its come from the materials used to make it.
This is whipped consistency, hence the name I'm guessing, and this has more of a body butter texture than the original. Nothing against body butters but they do take a while to massage into my skin, and while that is fine during the summer, I do not want to be standing there for a extra 15 minutes moisturising in the colder months, so pretty much most months in England. The smell is also slightly sweeter than the original Creme de Corps, but not at all over powering, just a very gentle honey scent almost.
I also loved that my hands felt moisturised the entire day after using both of these. I am way to lazy to re-apply moisturiser throughout the day so my hands have been grateful too. Pricey? Yeah. But a little goes a long way, and that it was able to take care of the dry skin I’ve been fighting against for goodness knows how long, so it will make worthwhile to me. No, I am not picking my favourite, I am in love with them both. And who said you can't have two true loves?
