I love thick, rich body creams. Sometimes, even in the harshest and driest of winters though, a thick cream can be too much, especially during the day. This is why I have become very dependent on various shea butter formulaes. I have found a new body cream, though that has changed my thoughts, my ways, and my skin.
Meet Lancome Nutrix Royal Body Cream. This cream is very similar to a whipped shea butter, though it appears much firmer until you dig your fingers into it. The smell is strong, at first, but it dries down to a soft, almost powdery, light floral scent.
Nutrix Royal Body Cream is made with Royal Lipideum, which is a patented technology enriched with Royal Jelly that supplements your skin's own natural lipids for intense hydration.
Within just a few days use, my dry patchy knees and elbows are so much softer. I generally use this right in the shower after I turn off the water. I like to rub it into my skin while I am still wet as to get rid of any heavy or thick cream feel. At night, I have even been smoothing this rich cream over my feet, making them look, feel, and evn smell divine.
This wonder cream from Lancome retails for $34.00. If for some reason you are afraid of a thicker cream (which there really isn't a need to be in this case) or generally prefer a lotion, there is also a Nutrix Royal Body Lotion available as well.
