Kiehl's Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter

My fondness of body butters have led me to try them in all flavors and variants, and this one from Kiehl's has become an instant favorite from the moment I first used it. Imagine dipping into a soft souffle that smells of creamy milk and sweet honey combined, then slathering it all over your skin. It's heavenly!

Kiehl's Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter (P2,500.00)

About the Product:


This luxurious air-whipped body butter is quickly absorbed to deliver rich hydration for a wonderfully indulgent (and addictive!) experience. Our Soy Milk and Honey souffle is enriched with Shea Butter and Squalane to help restore skin, along with anti-oxidant-enriched Jojoba Butter and Beta Carotene to protect and soften skin.

Ingredients:


Pros:
  • Product is sealed upon purchase.
  • It has an air-whipped texture that's light, airy, and moisturizing without feeling heavy. It almost bounces when you touch it!
  • It looks, smells, and feels delicious on the skin. It smells sweet (like a creamy dessert) without being overpowering. The scent is a bit on the warm side - rich and comforting, so it's great to use when the weather is dry and cold. I apply this body butter at night, and I can still smell hints of it in the morning!
  • It's thicker than lotions, but it's easily absorbed by the skin for instant softness!
  • It keeps my skin moisturized, soft, and velvety smooth for long.

Cons:
  • It only comes in one size - a big tub. It's not so travel-friendly, but then again you could always scoop some out on smaller jars.
  • It's freaking expensive for a body moisturizer (but it does work in keeping dryness at bay).
  • Since it has a thicker texture than lotions, I don't advise using it during the day in our country, where everyday feels like a hot summer day. Your skin is bound to get sticky when you start to sweat. (For this matter, I envy those who live in places with cooler climates as they can use this body butter to their heart's content even during the day. You'll smell so good wearing this!)

If you have extra budget to spare, and would like to treat your skin to a luxurious body moisturizer, get this! If I had unlimited budget, I'd get the entire range of Kiehl's Creme de Corps ASAP because it smells sooo good and it works! However, if you're trying to save up, there are other more affordable alternatives that could give you the moisturizing power of a body butter without burning a hole in your wallet.

For now, my skin is so enjoying every bit of this body butter. I'm using it every night and yet I hope it never runs out. Haha! I would like to know, what body moisturizer are you loving right now? 

Love,
Helen

  2. The packaging reminds me of hair treatment tubs! ^_^

    And whoahhh it's a whooping Php2,500! I don't think I'll ever spend such amount on a product no matter how good it is. Lol

    1. Mas budget friendly ang TBS for the body butters. :)

    2. Correct! Madalas nga sila mag sale, kaya pag may gusto kang bilhin na item sa TBS, pwede mo hintayin na mag sale para mas sulit, kung hinde pricey parin kasi. :)

    1. I love it when the scents lasts long, and your VS body butter sounds like a wonderful product!

      I didn't know there was a Creme de Corp with SPF, maybe we don't have it yet locally, but if it has additional SPF then that's even better!

      As for the branch, I'm not so fond of the Trinoma branch, they're not generous with samples unlike other branches.

    1. Mabango siya. It has that subtle sweet and almost edible scent, parang dessert. Yung sa color, okay lang yun kasi pag inapply mo na sa skin mo di mo na makikita yung yellow. Haha :D
