Askmewhats Reviews: Kiehl's Creme De Corps

Dear Saturday, won't you stay longer? I'd love to spend more time with you! LOL

Happy weekend!!! I will be off for my dentist appointment this afternoon, of course, the usual cleaning and for my annual checkup! Yes people, beauty should be, I repeat, SHOULD BE in and out! Go to your dentist and have your beautiful set of teeth checked, promise?

Today, I will be talking about a moisturizer I've used and finished up! The Kiehl's Creme de Corps Rick Nourishing Cream. Just the name gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. How did it work out for yours truly? Read on...

Kiehl's Creme De Corps says ---

Superb All-Over Body Moisturizer of Superb Quality for extremely dry, or flaking skin. Enriched with the finest ingredients known to Kiehl’s, for a rich, elegant skin texture. Continued use for 10 days will provide a skin texture heretofore unattainable.

Key Ingredients

eta-Carotene is a naturally derived antioxidant predominantly found in many orange/red vegetables such as carrots. It is used in Vitamin A production and gives an orange tint when used in skin care products.

Cocoa Butter
Cocoa Butter is a yellowy fat expressed from the roasted seeds of the cocoa plant. It is solid at room temperature but melts at body temperature. It softens and lubricates skin and is used in a variety of skin care formulations.

Sesame Oil
Sesame Oil, which is a refined moisturizing oil derived from Sesame Seeds, has the same emollient properties as other nut and vegetable oils and is commonly used as a carrier oil for skin care products. Absorbs easily and softens the skin.

Directions for use

Apply after bath or shower or anytime, as often as necessary. Gently massage this rich creme into dry body areas. Allow to remain and soak in several minutes before dressing. Our thick, elegant non-greasy formulation will be absorbed by the dry skin tissues, leaving skin soft, smooth and beautifully moisturized.

Askmewhats says ---

  • absorbs to the skin quickly
  • moisturizes my skin for the whole day
  • smells wonderful
  • packaging is simple and straightforward
  • non greasy
  • quite pricey for people who aren't comfortable in spending a lot for body moisturizers

What you're looking for in a body moisturizer, you find it here. Kiehl's Creme De Corps did not fail my expectation, it nourishes my skin and dry itchy patches are gone after regular usage. I can't say this is a HG (holy grail) material for now as there's so many moisturizers available in the market that it's quite difficult for me to stay loyal to one! What I love about Kiehl's is the simple packaging, the potency it has for me not to squirt too much which I find is money saving! The wonderful fresh scent of milk doesn't hurt my nose too! :)


  • not sure if the product is worth purchasing? Go to Kiehl's store and try on their testers
  • apply Creme De Corps right after taking a shower
  • apply generous amount on dry areas like elbows, knees and feet
  • wear socks at night with ample amount of Creme De Corps and you'll wake up with soft feet!
Will I repurchase?

I want to, but I also want to try other moisturizers out there that are lesser expensive!

Where to purchase and how much?

At Kiehl's shop at Greenbelt 5 available in 2 sizes
250 ml for Php1,800 (approx $37.00)
500ml for Php 3,150 (approx $64.00)

  1. Dear Saturday... LOL you are so cute!!! That's a good one :)

  3. Oh I didn't know about this, too :D Happy Saturday, Nikki!

  4. There are lots of great reviews about Kiehl's products. It's about time I give it a try. Mr. A volunteered to be my guinea pig. :-)

    Thanks for sharing.

  5. Sarah, lol you know I'm crazy and talking to oneself is part of it :)

    Hana, yes, the lipbalms are great, I'm using the 2nd tube

    Teeyah, ugh, I'm at work now :(

    Liza! So true, so yeah, accept the guinea pig job! it's a nice moisturizer!

  6. Hi! I'm confused by the phrase "use right after bath"? Is this before drying my skin, or right after drying? :) I got a free pack of this lotion for purchasing the lip balm, but I haven't tested the lotion yet. :)
