Whipped up into a frenzy over Philosophy’s Fresh Cream
Applying body lotion religiously in the cooler months is not most people’s number one priority. Why bother if you don’t have your arms/legs on show? Well, if you’re like me and have dry skin in these areas, then the chances are you do continue to put on lotions, to help keep your skin hydrated. However, for me it’s a task I usually detest. The problem is, I loathe body lotions/creams that take forever to absorb into your skin. When it’s cold, you just want to put your clothes on asap, not sit around shivering waiting for creams to sink in. Or even worse, think everything’s sunk in only to find your clothes start sticking to you. Yuck!
Enter Philosophy’s Fresh Cream. A non-greasy body lotion that not only smells divine but sinks into your skin quickly. It has a creamy lightweight formula that contains macadamia seed oil, olive fruit oil and shea butter, so your skin not only smells good but feels good.
Seriously, this lotion smells incredible, not overpowering just literally like an indulgent vanilla cupcake with the sweetest buttercream icing. What I also love about it is that it leaves my skin feeling smooth and smelling good all day, so you only need to apply it once.
This is only the second product I’ve ever tried by Philosophy, the latter being a bubble bath snowflake, which I thought was alright. This though, is different; I’ve never felt this happy about a body lotion in my life!
Typically though, this doesn’t appear to be readily available in the UK. I do wonder why that is? You can purchase the 3-in-1 shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath, which is wonderful if you are looking for a multi-tasking product. There is a fragrance which is also available and a high gloss lip shine – all on Philosophy’s UK site. The only place I’ve found that you can buy the body lotion is through Amazon. Mine took a good few weeks to arrive but it was worth the wait. I’m going to double up on my next order!
I can’t honestly say enough good things about this product. It does everything I want it to do – fast absorption, smells good, long lasting hydration. At around £12-13 on Amazon, it’s not a bad price. If you didn’t know the price, you would expect to pay more. So well done Philosophy, I’m impressed – you’ve got yourself a new fan girl. Now I’m eager to try more from the Fresh Cream range.
What are your favourite body lotions?
P.S. After application I wash my hands so there’s no lingering scent on them – I don’t like perfume type scents when I’m handling food!
