To really penetrate the skin, apply after a shower or bath when pores are more open and able to really absorb the product.

Elite Therapeutics

Birchbox Breakdown

If the drop in temperature has your skin crying out for attention (it wants hydration, and it wants it now!), Elite Therapeutics knows just what you need. This Elite Crème is a daily therapeutic treatment for both face and body. Active botanical oils and pharmaceutical-grade ingredients will show your dry skin who’s boss.

How it Works

Using powerful antioxidant manuka honey and soothing avocado oil, this crème calms the skin and replenishes moisture after the very first use. It delivers the perfect dose of hydration year-round, but is especially nurturing and healing in the dryer, colder winter months when your skin’s moisture levels need an extra oomph.

How to Use

Apply as needed to your face and body, paying special attention to areas you know will get a bit drier than others (hands, feet, knees, elbows).

Love this lotion!
Purchased

I received this as a sample in one of my boxes a few months ago and hadn't even tried it, but I decided to try it recently and I love it, I like how it feels on my face, but the biggest plus to me is that I've used it on the back of my hands where they get really dry and wrinkly looking no matter how often I put lotion on, I have been looking for a lotion like this for years now, my hands finally don't look older than me!! Love this stuff!!

AMAZING Moisturizer
Purchased

I have been looking for a moisturizer forever. I find it difficult because my skin is in between so lotions usually are too heavy and almost greasy on my skin or don’t do anything at all. I received a sample of Elite Therapeutics Elite Creme in one of my monthly samples box and from the moment that I used it I was hooked. AMAZING. I put it on my face and neck after getting out of the shower. At no point does my face feel greasy and it dries and I don’t even realize that I put any lotion on, my skin just feels healthy. Great base for applying makeup or just going out as is. Truly - give it a try and you will be hooked too. FANTASTIC!!

Nice Lotion

The sample size was very generous! This is a nice, hydrating lotion, but I didn't find it to be more moisturizing than other (much cheaper!) drugstore brands. It has a very pleasant citrus scent, but I found the fragrance a little too overpowering to put on my face.

Wonderful
Purchased

My kids came home with dry cracked hands, one daughter's hand even was bleeding in this cold winter we are having! I felt terrible. I tried two other lotions, and they cried how much their hands were stinging. I tried this sample. Perfect. Works great, doesn't sting, soaks in quickly, smells wonderful. We are all big fans now.

Very effective
Purchased

I love this cream. It smells wonderful and works great. It has been a very cold and dry winter - which usually means my skin is dry and my hands crack. But since I have been using this cream my skin is softer and smoother than ever. The price is way more than I have ever spent on lotion - but it is worth it.

LOVE this face cream!

This is definitely a new favorite of mine. It has a great smell, and my favorite part is it actually works all day without making my skin oily. It works really well for dry skin.

Nice lotion

This is a super rich lotion. The smell is not too overpowering, which is nice. I liked the size of the sample, it was great to keep in my purse!

Thick and creamy
Sampled

This cream is great for my dry, sensitive skin. It goes on thick and keeps my skin moist all night long. Just wish it wasn't so expensive.
