I received this body cream as part of a bonus gift from Birchbox, the monthly sample subscription service. While I no longer utilize their service, I must say this was the best treat I received from them. For a drugstore brand, it’s incredibly decadent and while the scent can be a tad overwhelming, it mellows quickly and is rather sophisticated. It feels wonderful on dry, rough skin and since it’s think, it handles rough elbows, knees and heels with aplomb.
Sold exclusively at CVS, its tube container is easy to pack for a gym bag and it’s offered in a travel size to comply with those pesky TSA guidelines. Natural, but not organic: no sulfates, parabens or mineral oils.
