Everyone has a skincare product that’s like a trusted BFF—you know, the one that you rely on every single day. Not to knock your current bestie, but we want to make sure you’ve been introduced to S.W. Basics Cream—the dead simplest lotion we’ve ever laid our eyes (er, hands) on. Because even best friends need updating now and again.
I have the entire set of products from S.W. BASICS and I have fallen in love with them. The cream is thick and smooth, has a nice scent, I use it at night in very dry spots5
I love that this product is all natural and effective. I can't stand even slightly dry hands, and I find my hands stay moisturized longer with this than the expensive hand lotion I got in the luxe box. Only downside, besides price, is this doesn't absorb quickly. Leaves my hands greasy for a while.4
I bought this from Birchbox without sampling beforehand due to the product containing some of my favorite ingredients: coconut oil n olive oil!! Plus Shea butter. I am more than happy with the purchase. I use it all over and the smell is enchanting. Have used it as a massage cream/oil too hehe. I LOVE THIS STUFF.5
This product made my skin sooo soft and smell sooo good.5
The most gentle and effective moisturizer I've ever used. If my skin is super dry and unhappy, this cream will make it feel better. It's only three ingredients, so there is nothing in it to aggravate any issues. It even works nicely as a night cream on eyes and lips. I have the smaller size (purchased directly from SW Basics) and it's lasting me forever. I don't use it as my primary moisturizer, but I really like having this product for occasional use or targeted treatment. I'd love to see more from this brand on Birchbox.5
This stuff is the BEST. A bit spendy , so I use it when I am going out. Great moisture for our harsh Minnesota winters.5
I am absolutely in love with this cream. I thought it would be too heavy for my face and clog my pores causing breakouts, but it's done the exact opposite.
My skin is smoother than ever and I've had less breakouts. It's done an amazing job of keeping my skin hydrated this winter.
The texture and smell is similar to a Hand & Cuticle Slave I've used. The texture is great for hands but I'm not so keen on using it on my body. The jar was MUCH smaller than I had anticpated for the price.3
I bough. This a while back thinking t would be perfect for a winter face cream instead of my usual face oil, but like the other reviewer stated it is super thick and it sits on skin. Fast forward to a month ago: my feet were feeling the effects of wearing sandals all summer and decided to put this on my feet overnight and my feet have been the softest in a long while. in the past couple of weeks I've been putting it on my arms at night too and waking up with less KP. I will buy again as a night time body cream, but wouldn't suggest using it on your face unless your have skin dryer than a desert!5
I bought this actually expecting it to be a 'cream'. The actual texture is much more like lip balm, the product is firm, thick and buttery (not creamy) and you have to really dig your fingernails into it to get it out of the pot. Once on your skin it leaves a greasy residue all over your fingers and doesn't sink in at all.
I tried it on my elbows and hours later there was still grease on them and I actually had to wipe off the product with a paper towel. This might be good for people with extremely dry feet but otherwise this is the worst thing I've purchased from Birchbox.
