Before you slather on this rich cream, combat dry skin while you shower with C.O. Bigelow’s Lemon Sugar Body Scrub.

C.O. BIGELOW

Birchbox Breakdown

When life hands you lemons, we say slather on this lemon-scented body cream. As aromatherapy works its magic (the scent of lemon has been shown to increase energy and improve concentration), moisturizers shea butter and kukui nut oil renew and soften skin. Don’t you feel better already?

How it Works

This nourishing formula is packed with antioxidants: lemon extract (hello, vitamin C!), vitamin E, and carrot root extract are just a few of the key players. These hardworking, natural ingredients fight off free radical damage so you don’t have to worry about sagging skin, dark spots, and other scary things that go bump in then night. Kukui nut oil is rich in fatty acids, which help strengthen skin’s moisture barrier.

How to Use

Apply a generous amount all over, paying special attention to rough areas like heels, knees, and elbows.

Heart = Broken
Purchased

I love this brand and I had high hopes for this product as it had some great reviews. I'm a lover of lemon and I was not happy with this lemon scent. Instead of a sweet lemony confection type of smell, it is a mix of lemon and orange and smells more like a floor cleaning solution, sort of diluted and vinegar-y. The formula is nice and buttery but not quite as hydrating as I had hoped. Should have tried it before I bought it!

A little too greasy
Purchased

Thought the smell was pleasant but the consistency is a little greasy and hard to absorb. Not sure it really does the trick in moisturizing the skin very well

Stay Out of the Sun...

When I used a sample of this product and later spent a short amount of time (~20 minutes) in indirect, early-evening sunlight, my hands and arms broke out in tiny bumps. I did some research and discovered that too much lemon oil in a product like this can make skin very sensitive to sunlight; I also found plenty of other people who'd had similar experiences with this product. My skin isn't usually sensitive at all, so the reaction was quite an unwelcome surprise. Other products with lemon have never given me trouble, so all I can figure is that this product contains too high a concentration of lemon oil. It smelled heavenly and moisturized fairly well, but I can't recommend it. If you use it, stay out of the sun.

C.O. Bigelow Lemon Body Cream
Purchased

C.O. Bigelow does not disappoint! This product is very moisturizing with out leaving a greasy feeling or residue. The fragrances (my favorite is lemon) are very invigorating, relaxing, fresh and light. I use this alone with the C.O. Below Lemon cream body wash, and love the luxurious feel of my skin. I've tried several products from this company and have never been disappointed. I would confidently recommend this product especially if your skin is combination or dry. Wishing you a happy experience with this product.

Delicious for the bod
Purchased

This is the perfect lotion. It is moisturizing and non greasy. Also, the smell is divine. I am not a big supporter of strong smelling lotions, but this one is the perfect balance of freshness. Use in the morning and you'll be pumped for the day.

Lemony fresh goodness in a jar

If you like the smell of lemons you'll love this lotion. It has a non greasy formula and keeps your skin hydrated for much longer than other lotions. I would highly recommend it for all skin types also.

Heavenly

The smell of this alone makes me give this 5 stars. There is nothing that smells better. To be honest, I can't even comment on the quality because I am always so caught up in how delicious it smells.
