Essence of Beauty Walnut Whip Body Cream

I didn't plan on making a section for creams, lotions, scrubs etc for the body. Since I love them and have just found the body cream that I humbly attribute the power to launch a thousand shopping sprees, I figure I ought to share this obsession with you too. The body cream in question is the Essence of Beauty Walnut Whip Body Cream.

I was slumming at my local CVS (the staff there knows me as the make-up cazy girl who haunts the aisles and goes "oooohhhh prettttyyyyyy" at all the colours) when I picked up the Walnut Whip Body Cream. This comes in a round, brown tub and weighs 205 grams. The cost is a little less than $5 but I think these go on sale once in a while too.

I've been using it for the past few days and I cannot believe how much I love this cream. The texture is medium to light and it feels very airy when you apply it. It doesn't feel greasy and moisturizes quite well. I've had body creams that moisturize better but this is nothing to sneeze at. My skin doesn't get dry during the day with this cream and since it's winter I think that's an accomplishment.

As for the smell, it smells like a warm walnut and vanilla mixture which makes it a fairly sophisticated and complex. It also lasts for a long time and doesn't disappear into thin air. If you like warm, vanilla food smells, the Walnut Whip Body Cream is a great choice. I love this smell so much I can't stop marveling at how great I smell. Yes, I know, I'm complimenting myself here but this cream smells so very good.

i hope you like it. you can mix a few drops of jojoba oil with the cream to help very dry skin (which is what i do when my skin is REALLY dry). works very well and absorbs quickly.
