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).
After spending a day in the sun, I thought I would try this body cream. The scent was Flamboyant which had a real nice scent. The cream was very thick but soaked right in and left my skin smooth. I really liked this product.4
I got my mom a Birchbox as a gift and she received this as a sample and loved it. She saved a little for me to smell and it was nice and the lotion is thick. It was a little pricey but I bought it for her for her bday and it was a good size for the cost.4
I love this stuff. I went through my sample extremely fast. It has an odd pencil/musky smell but you get used to it and it isn't a huge deterrent. It feels like it's really nourishing your skin. You can feel the moisture and then it leaves almost like a tightness feel to your skin as if the moisture has been locked in -- love it!5
As other reviewers have stated, it DOES smell like pencil shavings! I believe it was the flamboyant scent. However, that being said, it is a fabulous body cream! It soaks right in without leaving you feeling greasy and does a great job of adding instant moisture to parched skin. I used it exclusively on my dry winter hands and it was amazing. The off-putting smell doesn't linger for long. I have not tried any of the other available scents, but perhaps those are a bit more nose friendly.4
My hands have been super dry from this winter and this Tiossan body cream did wonder on all of the dry areas without it being greasy!4
Loved the scent and the texture. Not too oily. Great lotion for the dry, winter months. Bought as a gift for my mom and she wears it every day!5
this lotion smells funny and did not moisturize that well. definitely not worth the money when you can find better stuff for way cheaper that doesnt stink1
Great sent- nice absorption- not a buttery lotion. Planing on picking up some more in the future. very sophisticated scent.4
I have very dry skin, particularly in the winter (like most), and this didn't really do the trick for me or go on very smoothly on my arms. I saved it next to my bed for a hand cream right before bed and that seems to be the best bet. The smell is very strong, but I actually like the scent, though I can't imagine coworkers or fellow commuters being able to handle it so I don't keep it in my purse. Essentially, I like it has a hand lotion, but I don't see me buying it.3
This body creme blends well (feels greasy at first but that quickly goes away) -- but my god the smell! It's like a heavily perfumed number 2 pencil! Just way too strong and not particularly pleasant to begin with.2
