First of all, I’d like to take a minute to offer a little explanation. Sometimes I come across products or things in general that I quite like or in some cases dislike that don’t exactly warrant an extensive review. However, I still want to share these things with you so that you can enjoy them or so that you know to steer clear of them. So I thought this would be an excellent way to do that in a short, sweet and more concise way. Let me know what you think by commenting down below.
This was one of those impulse buy’s. You know the deal, you’re wandering the drugstore and happen upon a display that catches your eye and then you’re sucked in. Did I need yet another body lotion? Of course not. However, once I smelled this there was no way I was walking out DM without it. I for one love sweet-scented products. If it smells like vanilla, almond or something equally as yummy, I’m instantly sold. This body cream smells like a sweet, lemony vanilla frosted cupcake. Every morning when I slather this on my skin after my shower, I find myself very tempted to high tail into the kitchen and bake a dozen or so cupcakes.
Not only does this smell amazing, but it was super affordable, I think this was about €2,45 for 200 ml of product. Balea is DM’s store brand of products. They offer an incredibly wide range products. Personally I have only tried a handful of Balea products and I have found them to be pretty run of the mill for the most part. This body cream is the exception in my opinion though. It is incredibly moisturizing and the scent lasts the whole day. Also, I find that once you work this in it is not greasy like some other body butter/cream products that I’ve tried. For me this is a must because I can not stand that greasy feeling, especially during the warmer months. I would definitely repurchase this. In fact next time I’m in DM I plan to pick up a few more of these before they disappear. As always, thanks for reading and check back soon.
