When I was send a small bottle of the Kiehl's Creme de Corps body lotion I was so happy. Not only because this was going to be on of the first time I have used this Cult Status for the past 4 decades lotion, but also because Kenny Scharf's design was on the babel. if you want more information about Kenny Scharf and the Kiehl's Charity click HERE!
Anyway. I know what you all are thinking.
"It's just body lotion, Elvira. How amazing can it really be?"
You're right. it is body lotion but it's not "JUST" body lotion.
You see. I have insanely dry skin...everywhere but my face. It's like all the oil glands in my body decided to hang out on my face and left the rest of me high and literally dry. I go through bottles and bottles of lotion. I buy inexpensive body lotion whenever I can. I don't care the brand, I just care of it's on sale. I like some brands better than others but they all seem to do the same job. Moisturize for a few hours, then I need to reapply. However...when I was give the chance to try out the Kiehl's Creme de Corps body lotion I found that the lotion moisturized longer than some other brands I had been using. In fact, the more I used this lotion, the less I had to use later on. The longer I used this lotion, the nicer my skin started to look. It was then that I had an epiphany. Perhaps spending a little more for quality is worth it compared to spending less money just for quantity.
Quality over Quantity. Now that's a novel idea. I wonder if anyone has ever thought of that before? Well I am too busy to google it, so I'll just assume I discovered it. Yes. Quality is important. As with the Kiehl's Creme de Corps I found a little goes a long way. This lotion is very moisturizing. Since my skin is very dry, it "drinks in" any lotion quite fast, so your results may vary, but I found this lotion to absorb quickly and moisturize efficiently in a short amount of time.

Quality over Quantity. Like I said, a little goes a long way. Some other lotions I have used require two or thee pumps just for one leg. At that rate I was going through bottles quite fast. The more lotion I used the more the SCENT of the lotion overpowered me. I like an unscented or low scented lotion like Kiehl's Creme de Corps because it won't compete with my perfume and I can apply it at the office without asphyxiating my cow-workers (you read that correctly, not a typo) with the lotion scent du jour.
Quality over Quantity. Many lotions are runny and liquefy upon application. The Kiehl's Creme de Corps lotion is thick, dense, viscose. Check it out. applied to my arm and my arm is upside down. That lotion isn't going anywhere.
Quality over Quantity. Many lotions make you feel like you have a second layer of skin. It might feel stick-y or silicone-y or mask-y. The Kiehl's Creme de Corps felt lightweight almost invisible on my skin. I didn't feel like I needed a shower from some sticky lotion and I didn't feel like my skin was suffocating either! My skin felt soft and moisturized and it felt like....well...it felt like skin!

Do you NEED this? Well I will admit it is on the expensive side. There are other lotions that probably cost less that work almost as well, but I have yet to find one that meets all my criteria as far as Texture, Moisturization, Fragrance, and Finish. So If you want to join the cult of Kiehl's Creme de Corps fanatics I say hop on board. Now's a great time to buy some as the Creme de Corps lavels are featuring the vibrant work, "Globo Mundo" by Kenny Scharf. These are limited edition and only available for this holiday season. In collaboration with the Iconic Pop Surrealist, Kiehl’s will raise $200,000 for children’s causes around the world. In the United States, 100% of net profits will support RxArt, a non-profit organization committed to fostering artistic expression for young patients in pediatric hospitals. Soft skin and a soft heart. That's a perfect combination!
