Birchbox Breakdown

This botanical wonder is inspired by the centuries-old formulas of Le Couvent des Minimes. The former convent has a storied history of catering to the sick with healing ointments. Redolent of sweet, mouthwatering honey, the fast-absorbing formula smells good enough to drizzle into a cup of warm tea. Plus, it won’t leave skin greasy or slick.

How to Use

Massage generously into skin after stepping out of the shower.

Good moisturizer, strongly scented.

The formula of this moisturizer is a bit runny, but glides on smoothly and absorbs well. It is neither greasy or sticky and leaves my skin feeling moisturized, soft and supple.
It is supposed to have a light honey scent. However, the scent is pretty strong and heavily perfumed. It's not unpleasant, just a bit too strong. It does tone down nicely after about two hours though, so apply it sparingly. If the scent wasn't so strong, I would have given this product 5 stars.

Honey Do!

This lotion is the "real deal". It has a beautiful, natural honey scent. The scent is not artificial or cloying. The lotion absorbs nicely and it does not leave the skin feeling sticky or greasy. Will definitely be back for more!

Smells amazing!

I love this lotion! It smells amazing but isn't over powering. It moisturizes my skin but doesnt leave it feeling sticky. I wont use any other lotion!

Want to hug the nuns who started these formulas

I had been using the one initial product Birchbox had, a tube of odd smelling hand cream that worked like magic, until the second hand cream came along and I decided to try it. Oh my goodness it was beyond magic and made me feel like I had been making peanut butter and honey sandwiches with out the peanut butter! So as soon as I saw this soothing body lotion I had to get it and I'm so glad I did even though I still have bottles of other lotions from Birchbox that I love but this is not only really smooth and creamy it smells like our friends, the bees have been very, very busy! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS PRODUCT! BRAVO AGAIN BIRCHBOX!

I like how easy to spread this is, and it gets absorbed quickly. It helps considerably with my sad winter skin. The scent is perfectly matched to the shower gel. It blends well with the few perfumes I'll rotate for daily wear--Prince Harvey Hello, Joie Folle de Joie and Benefit Laugh with Me LeeLee.
