Product of the week – Kiehls Creme de Corps


Creme de Corps is arguably the most famous product in the Kiehl’s range, and for good reason. It’s also, I would say, one of my very favourite cosmetic items.

This isn’t a groundbreaking product suggestion! It’s hailed frequently in articles and polls year after year, as their number one body moisturiser.

To be honest, I have never spent as much, or focused as much on body moisurisers, as I have on face and hair products. By the time you’ve covered your whole body – daily – you get through a bottle or tub so quickly. I always buy good basic body moisturisers . And one’s that moisturise well while smelling gorgeous.

Now Kiehl’s Creme de Corps doesn’t really smell of much at all, and yet I am addicted to the stuff. I love the packaging. I love that you can buy it in whatever size suits your needs from 75mls up to 1 litre – as I pictured at Heathrow airport (above). I’ve only ever seen the 1 litre stuff in the USA before… if only I my baggage wasn’t already 10kg over my allowance!

It also comes in a lightweight version, and lightweight version with SPF30. Absolutely love body moisturisers with the built in SPF – we should all be wearing it every day anyway – so built in just makes it easier.

The classic Creme de Corps contains Sesame Oil, Cocoa Butter and Beta-Carotene. ‘10 days’ they say, and you notice the difference. On my body – it’s my legs that need it very much – I’m missing it, having not brought it on my travels.

I sometimes use it, and an instant tan mixed together, for subtle colour and glow.

They currently offer – and this changes often – a Florence & The Machine labelled version. 100% net profits of the sales goes to the Teenage Cancer Trust.

This product is remarkably cheaper in the states, so if you are planning a trip anytime soon, I would say hold off and pick it up there.

    Loving the blog and cannot wait for the next installment. I know a lot of people who refuse to give their beauty secrets so I absolutely love the fact that you are willing to tell readers what you use so we can dream of having skin like yours 🙂 Enjoy your travels x.

    I used it every time I was pregnant. No stretch marks at all!!! It does leave a slight “yellow” tinge on sheets I’ve noticed, but a small price to pay for something so deliciously perfect.
