Creme de la Creme?

This cream rocks. I got my hands on this behemoth bottle Kiehl's Creme de Corps by bartering a tub of Natura Bisse's DERMAREPAIR with my office mate.

The good
It's fragrance free so it doesn't compete with my perfume, gets rid of dry patches, and makes my skin smooth and soft and after a week of continued use it gives my skin a pretty glow.

The bad
It's fragrance free so it's not as fun to slather all over my 2000 parts. It's also a bit thick so I really have to work it in - not so fun when I'm running late in the mornings. And last, the price - don't know if I would spend the $70 for the bottle. Granted, it's a 1-liter, so I can see this bottle lasting a good year, maybe a year-and-a-half. I might spring for the smaller bottles though - less sticker shock.

One note though - it's eerily similar in scent and color and feel to Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. And since both companies are under the Estee Lauder umbrella, it's one of those things that make me go "hhhhmmmmm". I'll let you know what I find out...
