Sometimes we get the urge to skip the all-important post-shower moisturizing step, but these intensely moisturizing body creams rid us of any such impulse. Each cream comes in a distinctive French-inspired fragrance (see below) and is infused with natural, nongreasy hydrators and to banish all manner of chapping and flaking. Fragrances: Fatale is a mix of sweet and spicy (bergamot, patchouli, moss, vanilla, rose, and chocolate); Terranga is a warm fragrance with hints of mandarin, fig, apricot, and rose; Femme smells of heavy florals (ylang ylang, lily of the valley, jasmine, and pink rose); and Flamboyant combines citrus musk and amber with floral scents (think: honeysuckle and peony).
I received terranga. The initial smell was not great, kind of old ladyish. The lotion itself isn't as smooth on the kin as I expected.2
A nice lotion, creamy with a light scent. Not super heavy3
I really like the scent of this moisturizer. It absorbs very quickly and isn't greasy. The sample size is small, but it's perfect for my work bag. I think it'll be a good hand cream or extra layer during the day-especially during these dry fall days in L.A.3
I love how quickly this sank in to my skin without any greasiness. If the scent wowed me I would have been sold. I received the Femme and despite being described as a heady floral I can barely smell it. For the price point the fragrance needs to live up to the formula.4
I received this sample in my November Birchbox in Femme. Love the scent!!!!! Very feminine and sensual smelling. i keep getting whiffs of it and I wish it was perfume! Love the feel of it too. Definitely will be buying.5
While I like the texture and the general effectiveness of the product, I am not particularly fond of lotions with strong scents. I feel like lotion should mostly do the moisturizing and only rarely would I be ok with a scent. This particular brand is rather strong so I know that it would bother me that I won't be able to wear a perfume or body splash with it. Otherwise it's a good product.4
I hate heavy body creams, but this cream absorbs instantly, with no greasy feeling afterward. I received the Terranga scent, and it is fruity and light.5
The crÃ¨me is very smooth and isn't too greasy, but the smell is not so great. I could smell it the minute I opened my box this month and was looking around in confusion for the crayons that must've been sent to me. It doesn't need to be a powerful fragrance, just one that is a bit more than what it is.3
Birchbox, I love you guys and enjoy opening my box every month. This product, however, was not my favorite. The feel of this product is nice, but the smell is "old ladyish."1
This lotion feels nice and hydrating, but I really did not care for the scent.1
