I can’t even tell you how long I’ve been wanting to try Kiehl’s Whipped Body Butter – so when the postman arrived bearing one of the rather generously sized tubs, saying I was delighted was an understatement. What made the surprise even nicer was the fact that the tub is part of the Limited Edition Peter Max Holiday Collection, as is adored with the artist’s signature psychedelic illustrations. If you fancy your own arty tub, you can still get your hands on them in-store (I know the Edinburgh Kiehl’s store still has a couple!)
So, the fact that I had been lusting after the Creme de Corps Whipped Body Butter, and the fact that the tub is just gorgeous, meant I had rather high expectations for the stuff. And I’m glad to say, they were met and wholly surpassed! It might sound odd being so effusive about a moisturizer, but this stuff is holy grail worthy, and I’m not quite sure how I managed along without it!
The tub itself is a generous 226g, and the formula is so rich and nourishing, you only need a couple of finger-fulls of the stuff for your entire body. The butter is rich in Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil to really nourish skin, leaving it incredibly soft and nourished. The Body Butter also smells seriously incredible – the mix of soy milk and honey give a rich, slightly sweet scent which lingers on the skin. It’s the yummiest fragrance, which has a slight almond/coconut feel to it. It’s delicious!
Even more than the gorgeous fragrance or the serious moisturizing properties, I am just in love with the Whipped Body Butter’s Texture. Despite a seriously rich formula, the air whipped consistency means the moisturizer is a complete dream to apply, and my skin just drinks it up! Within a minute or two of application, it’s sunk in, meaning I can get dressed without having to worry about sticky limbs or staining delicate fabrics. My skin feels absolutely amazing after using the butter too! My legs and arms just feel so soft and cared for – I am just in love!
