Kiehl's Creme de Corps — improves after time

Kiehl's best-selling body cream Creme de Corps is amazing — though you'd never know it if you've only tried it once. There are so many initial off-putting things about it: it smells chemical-y, and the texture is almost rubbery. On the first couple of uses, I felt as if I had just dipped myself into a vat of rendered animal fat. *shudder*

But if you use Creme de Corps regularly on a long-term basis (about a week), you'll notice that it works better and better over time. The cream takes time to absorb, but once my skin got used to it, I felt soft and silky for days. I notice my skin takes on this deeply buttery, elastic texture that just isn't replicated with any other moisturizer I've tried.

I wouldn't have known anything about Creme de Corps if a friend hadn't gifted me with a bottle. Feeling guilty about his expensive purchase, I started using it … if only to get rid of it. Now I'm about to buy my second bottle.

It still doesn't smell great, but the scent does go away after it's absorbed, so I really don't notice it after awhile. If you really want an effective moisturizer (especially in these winter months), Kiehl's Creme de Corps is one that's not to be overlooked.

Yep, Kiehl's is great. I have had great results with the Acai range of products that it's now my most favorite moisturizer and serum for the day! Creme de Corps sounds ideal for the winter months ahead! Thanks for the tip!

I've generally had pretty good experiences with Kiehl's. I plan to keep a well-stocked bathroom full of Kiehl's products one day.

Kiehl's is pretty expensive. I've heard about the Yes to Carrots stuff. Wasn't it Oprah who said it worked great? Hey, if that stuff is better than Kiehl's, then I'm all aboard!

Happy to hear about Kiehl's. At the moment I'm happy with "Yes to Carrots" - what a silly name! But, it's inexpensive and does the trick. Need all the help I can get in this cold weather!
