In the winter my skin gets really dry. Especially on my body: if I don’t apply any lotion directly as I come out of the shower my skin will not stop itching the whole time, it just drives me crazy. So a good body cream is a must for me! I’ve tried quite many of them and only a few were worth talking about. This is one of them: Galenic Argane Intense Comfort Milky Body Cream.

Galenic Argane Intense Comfort Milky Body Cream: Product Description

Rich and fresh Intense Comfort Milky Body Cream transforms into a fluid milk upon contact with the skin to be absorbed immediately.
It intensely nourishes your skin to leave it smooth and radiant.

This cream is for very dry skin. The packaging is a tube with a pump. I love pumps like that, I think it’s very handy! There is 200ml/6.7 fl.oz. of product in it.

The main working ingredient of the cream is argan oil. It also contains other oils such as safflower and sesame. Number 2 ingredient is cyclomethicone, it also contains other silicones, fragrance and parabens so beware if you’re sensitive to that. I completely don’t mind especially the fact that there is fragrance: this lotion has an incredibly good perfume, I am completely in love! It’s quite soft but still, I love applying this cream in the morning!

The texture is something in between the thick and light. It takes only seconds to get absorbed, really quickly!

My opinion:

What I really like about this cream is its hydrating power. Normally I always apply tons of lotion onto my body because I don’t feel any effect otherwise. With this cream I only need a couple of pumps. It absorbs really quickly and my skin feel soft and hydrated right away. Oh and I love this perfume! Not too pronounced but still, it gives me this warm, soft feeling.

Overall note: A.
