Caldrea Body Crème

A good body lotion is hard to find. Too oily, too sticky, too thick—the list goes on and on. Lucky for us, Caldrea has been perfecting its body care line for a decade (yes, a decade!). This rich cream comes in three signature scents: Aloe Water Apricot, a modern white musk with floral notes; Tea Olive Lime, a green citrus scent with vanilla and orchid; and Coconut Fig Leaf, which is fresh and exotic with top notes of white fig, plum, and coconut.

Lack Luster

The scent is okay, not as refreshing as I would of thought. Its very musky and pungent.

The lotion applies nicely but does leave a greasy feeling.

Overpowering

I received the three samples and was really excited to try them. I thought the texture and consistency of the lotion was really nice but the scent of all three was too strong for me. Not only were they strong but I didn't care for the actual scents either. I will not be purchasing this product.

Eau de Sad

I got three samples of this lotion in this month's Birchbox. The packets were relatively generously sized- mine yielded a palmful of the creme. Sadly, this product was a disappointment. The the three fragrances seem to be the major selling point, and 2 out of 3 of mine were a massive letdown. Both the Aloe Water Apricot and Coconut Fig Leaf smelled like Old Lady (no offense, old ladies. I'll be one someday), and the Tea Olive Lime was just sort of... forgettable. The cremes left my skin soft, but they just aren't worth the price.

soft

The scent was subtle, but dissipated almost immediately. I like my scents to come from lotions as opposed to sprays, so I wouldn't choose this for smell. It did leave my skin feeling soft, which is the most important aspect of a lotion.

Love the lotion, don't love the scents.

I got a sample of each in the March Birchbox. While I really liked the consistency of the lotion, nice and light but still super moisturizing and easily absorbed w no residue, there was only one scent I liked - the apricot. The lime is over powering and the fig has a sandalwood element that is hard to get past.

Light scent, smooth feel

This creme really helps lock in moisture. It's smooth, thick , and rubs in easily. I like that it's not super oily. The light scent of the Coconut Fig Leaf is perfect for someone like me who can be sensitive to strong smells.

Great sent!

This lotion goes on nice and lite. Does not leave a heavy feeling on your skin and has a nice low key sent. I really enjoyed my sample!

Lovely Caldrea

This body lotion has a wonderful scent and goes on very well! My only complaint is that I like lotions that come in a pump! This is a little thicker however so that may not work.

Enjoyed Coconut Fig Leaf lotion

I don't usually like scented lotions but I have enjoyed this one. For me, it is a bit heavy or dense but I do feel like my skin is more hydrated after using it!
