Deliciously whipped and decadent like a scoop of vanilla ice cream, Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter is as buttery as they come. Truly a luxuriously scented cream, it is light on skin yet rich in 24-hour hydration. Decadently air-whipped for instant penetration to restore, protect, and soften skin, its formula is quickly absorbed leaving behind an addictive scent.
- Shea Butter is the natural fat obtained from the fruit of the African Karate tree and is widely used in lotions and cleansing products for its hydrating properties. Protects skin from dehydration, restores skin’s suppleness and improves the appearance of dry skin.
- A signature Kiehl’s ingredient, Squalane is a botanical lipid that is similar in molecular structure to natural skin lipids. It has an exceptional affinity to skin, and because it’s easily absorbed, Squalane helps restore skin’s natural moisture balance to keep it extra soft and supple.
- Jojoba Oil is extracted from the beanlike seeds of the desert shrub Simondsia Chinensis and has been traditionally used by both Mexicans and Native Americans for skin care purpose. It reduces transepidermal water loss without completely blocking the transportation of water vapor and gasses, providing suppleness and softness. It is nurturing for the skin and helps to restore skin’s natural lipid barrier.
- Beta-Carotene is a naturally derived antioxidant predominantly found in many orange/red vegetables such as carrots. It is used in Vitamin A production and gives an orange tint when used in skin care products.
The formula contains NO parabens, glycols or silicones.
Following Kiehl’s tips to apply on damp skin to seal in moisture, I started using the Body Butter immediately after a shower or bath, on slightly damp skin. Being whipped, the product does not require emulsifying; simply dip into the jar and apply. It leaves behind a slightly moist finish that absorbs slowly into skin, with a hint of its delicious, soft, warm luxurious scent. Unlike some other body butters that feel great immediately but only sit on top of skin, leaving you feeling dry within hours, this body butter actually absorbs and leaves your skin hydrated, even the next day. And I truly don’t know how Kiehl’s does it, but their softly scented products are intoxicating!
It’s time I pick up a smaller jar for my desk…
