Reviewed – Kiehls Creme de Corps Whipped in Grapefruit

March 6th, 2014


Sometimes our body just needs to be pampered. Our skin gets tired and dry, damaged by cold days, lack of sunshine and just life in general. If that all seems to be talking to you and your skin at the moment, I have just had the opportunity to test-drive the perfect product for you – Kiehls latest creme de corps whipped body butter, the latest limited edition from Kiehls.

I am a huge fan of Kiehls, I think their body products are second to none, they always seem to soften and nourish the skin, so when I heard there were some new flavours in the classic creme de corps range, I was eager to try them for myself. Kiehls very kindly sent me the grapefruit fragrance in the new cream, and I have been trialling this for  three weeks to see what effect it has on my skin.

Kiehls creme de corps promises an air whipped texture that should leave the skin with a smooth, silky finish. In addition it also claims to leave your skin soft and hydrated for 24 hours. These make it the perfect cream for busy moms who simply want to apply it and then forget about it.

The first thing you notice about the cream is the thickness, this is a genuinely thick body butter that straight away suggests something luxurious for your skin – a real treat.  As with most Kiehls products, a little goes a long way, a teaspoon sized amount of cream did both legs comfortably, so this is a product that will last.

The cream absorbs into the body surprisingly quickly when you consider the thickness and skin is left feeling really smooth and soft. I also rubbed it into my hands to get my hubbies opinion, and he noticed how much softer the skin felt. Due to the Jojoba and my fave miracle product, Shea Butter, there is true moisturisation of the skin, I often suffer patches of dry skin in winter and I could see and feel a noticeable difference with using this daily.

And of course, I couldn’t write a review of this without mentioning the gorgeously fruity scent. I loved the Grapefruit, it is such a fresh scent, and I love the fact that although it isn’t overpowering, it does linger, and you can still smell it on your skin as the day progresses. There are other limited edition fragrances available in this range at the moment, including Coriander and Soy Milk and Honey. These are all currently available at Selfridges.
