Pros♥ really great designs and a wide arrange to choose from
♥ reusable tin; small size is good for traveling or carrying in handbag
Cons♥ too heavy to use on face
♥ earthy scent
♥ expensive as a body cream
My ThoughtsThe texture is liquid-y but this is definitely not a lightweight moisturizer. I tried using it as a face cream, even as a night cream, but it just felt like a thick, heavy layer on my skin. I used the cream mostly as a hand cream and for any parts of my body that needed extra moisturizer. I think for the small amount of cream you get, the price is a bit high for a body cream, especially when I didn't find the cream to be extra nourishing compared to other body creams that I've used.
The scent is described as herbal but to me, it really just makes me think of freshly mowed grass or gardening, go figure. Of course, scent is a personal preference. I've heard this cream works great on eczema but I can't personally comment on that.
Truthfully what I liked most was the design of the tin. I love that the tins are reusable and they're great for carrying in a handbag or for traveling on airplanes. I think the limited edition designs are unique and these would make cute gifts.
Would I repurchase?If I was to find a cute design and for a cheaper price than retail (say about $10 or less), I would be tempted to buy it just for the tin! However, for the cream itself, I don't plan on repurchasing.
Here are some other available designs that I think are pretty.
Plum blossom bursting into bloom is the first sign of spring. Tiny pink and white blossoms filling country and town hearts with hope and happiness.
European flowers in an Asian design combining the delights of both cultures in a calming, colourful creation.
Outstandingly beautiful sakura, cherry blossom, Somei-yoshino, has such a short time to fill the world with beauty each spring. Pale pink blossoms burst out on top of each other inviting you into their dream world.
