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 and is infused with natural, nongreasy hydrators and to banish all manner of chapping and flaking.
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
I did not like the scent at all. It almost prohibited me from putting it on at all. The cream itself was smooth, not greasy. But I couldn't deal with smelling it on myself.2
This body cream left my skin feeling silky smooth, and absorbed quickly! The smell is amazing but not over powering!5
I got the "flamboyant" scent in my box. The cream is a little thin, between a body and hand cream, and smells awful. I'm using it just because I already have it, but prefer to put it on areas of my body I won't have to smell all day.. Like someone else said it's just like pencil shavings!2
I've been trying a lot of my lotion samples lately and this was not one of my favorites. It was just a bit too thick for me and it didn't seem to smooth out very well. It did smell nice though.3
This body cream is nice, but maybe in a different scent? I received the Terranga scent in a mystery sample pack, and indeed as another reviewer said, smells exactly like pencil shavings. Maybe good for someone who enjoys very woodsy scents, but just such a strange smell...3
This body cream is good for all year round and the scent puts this product over the edge. A little goes a long way so you don't need to put much on.3
I just received this in my "mystery sample pack" and read another review that was similar - I thought it worked great as a moisturizer .. however, it smelled like pencil shavings!!! I opened my package with some full size items that I purchased and was overwhelmed with the smell of pencil shavings. Not sure what it was coming from and I opened the sample size of the body cream and sure enough.. it was the body cream!2
Having Birchbox has allowed me to sample many different hand creams in a quest to keep my dry hands moisturized. I found this lotion thin and a little too fragrant for me. The smell is a little cloying.3
