kiehl's creme de corps light

I've seen this body lotion raved about in magazines for a few years now but I never managed to fork out the £27.50 to have it in my possession. Thankfully a lovely girl working in PR for Kiehl's included it in a package for me, so I wasn't left penniless. Previously I've tried high of the range body moisturisers and low budget ones too but have never come across my favourite until now. I highly doubt that anyone likes the feeling of a heavy moisturiser on their clean skin so that's why I've just avoided it all together for a while, which is a daft thing to do in winter. However the Kiehl's Creme de Corps light-weight body lotion is totally different to that, hence the name. It just seems to have the perfect combination of a light feel on your skin yet moisturises your skin really well. As far as the scent is concerned it barely smelt of anything to me, which is always a bonus as you don't want the smell to clash with your perfume. It also has an SPF of 30 which is great and I guess some people may use it as a super posh sun cream. And of course it sank straight into my skin and left it baby smooth. It's a shame about the price tag but it is something that I'd repurchase and use sparingly.
