I've only been using this body cream for 3 weeks but already my arms are less bumpy and feel so moisturised. It is heavy going on but absorbs into the skin really quickly.

Jemima Tate

My new favourite body cream! I’ve noticed such a difference on my arms and legs since using this. I’ve always been afraid to show my legs but this makes them brighter and more even.

Craig Keillor

I wish I had found this product years ago! I finally have smooth skin on my thighs and arms. After years of battling with small pimples all over they are gone! If you have bumpy dry skin then give this a go!

Amanda Young

Love this rich cream , clean fresh fragrance, really moisturises dry skin . Difficult to get this last bit out of glass bottle when the pump stops but a great product that really works!

Sue Benson

I love this product I just wish it came in a bigger bottle at a smaller price as if you used this every day on your body it doesn't last long! You can feel a bit of a tingle when you put it on but your skin feels amazing and it stays soft until the next shower. It also smells gorgeous! Will definitely buy again but too expensive for daily use.

Eleanor Dove

Smells amazing and really hydrates! I've noticed some of the bumps on my arms are already going after a week of using the body cream.


Skin feels nice and soft , i really noticed the difference!


I have Keratosis Pilaris and after reading this reviews, I decided to give this a go. It’s more expensive than I’d usually pay but wow, it it worth it! I’ve been using it for about a month now and although the unsightly ‘goosebumps’ aren’t completely gone, they are much improved. This cream feels a bit sticky after application but it doesn’t last long. I will definitely buy again.


Leaves skin REALLY smooth and hydrated. I personally only use it on my chest and arms as it’s slightly too expensive for me to use everywhere (and living in the uk it’s the only bits that really see the light of day) but I wanted something to help my skin look younger in those places, and this has made a difference to my skin for sure

Sandra Lux

Texture is heavy but does absorb fast. Great feel after applying it. Really makes you feel nourished and leaves healthy skin. Nice subtle scent. The only donwside (certainly taking in consideration the environmentally friendly glass dispenser) is the thick texture almost doesn't get out of the small pump dispenser and I fear it will leave a lot of the cream unused on the bottom as I see no way of emptying the bottle elsehow).

Sarah Zijderveld

I have been using this for a few weeks and love it! It is thick and your need to rub it in but my skin soaks it in and looks a lot healthier and refreshed because it is moisturized. This will be a product I buy again.

Suzanne Van Straaten

Fantastic body lotion leaving my skin smoother than ever.

Donna McGuinness

This is a lovely body cream and I really like the subtle scent too. The cream soaks in well and doesn't feel at all sticky. It has helped with the dry bumpy skin on the back of my arms which I'm pleased as its the reason I bought the cream. I have tried many moisturisers in the past but none have worked as well as this cream. I also love the fact it's in a glass bottle as I'm fed up with the majority of products I buy being in plastic which can't be reused.


Smooth skin, this product is very effective. I use it as at night and follow with cacay oil. Skin is soft and supple. Can't recommend enough. Just wish I can get a 500ml bottle.

Tanvir Khondaker

Happy with results so far. Applying to scalp. Can sting initially if applied to eczema it seems but not uncomfortably so. Does not make skin red. Seems to reduce flaking more effectively than Cocoa butter. Subtle but pleasant smell. Only downside is slightly greasy - it is more like an emollient. I would buy again however.


This product works very well. It’s definitely keeping my skin smooth. It’s quite thick and takes a while to rub in but I don’t mind because the good results are noticeable. The bergamot scent is not strong either. I’m quite sensitive to smells but this one was very subtle.


Very good moisturiser. My skin is more radiant! The only problem is when is come to the end you cannot get quite a lot of product out.

Sharon Greenwood

Wow! Have only been using for approx one week and I am loving the effect this cream is having on my skin. Was not sure what to expect but I am so happy I have tried this cream. The texture seemed very thick and heavy at first and took more rubbing in than I was used to but it sinks into the skin very quickly. I was concerned it would not be very moisturising but my mature skin feels soft and hydrated all day. My skin texture is so much smoother and less crepey, especially my sun damaged décolleté and lower arms. This cream has also managed to get rid of very stubborn dry patches on my knees and elbows. Very impressed and will certainly be purchasing again.

Magdalena Pitcher

Beautifully scented, absorbs really well and leaves the skin smooth and nourished. Also, a little goes a long way. Will definitely buy it again.


I am currently using this to tackle scarring on my body, once a week. It's too early to say whether there's a change but I love the fact it sinks into the skin fast. I'm optimistic about this product!


Fabulous cream really feel it works. I’ve been using for 4 months now and feel that my skin is smoother and not so ‘crepey’ Looking!


The formula is very sticky when apply and doesn't matter if your skin is wet or not. The sticky feeling on my skin was so bad I had to shower it off. However I've found that applying it with a cloth which I brought off this site and really rubbing it in really works to help make it less sticky on the skin. I've notice less bumps in my legs and arms also.

Hi Anon Thanks for the feedback. It may have felt slightly tacky because it has a high humectant level in it. It should keep your skin super-hydrated. You may of course return for a refund too if you don't get on with it (Just contact us help@facetheory.com) Jamie

Alicja Lalik

This body cream is amazing. It makes my skin so soft. I love it !


I have struggled for years with ‘chicken skin’ on my arms. They’ve looked horrible and felt horrible and I was very conscious. I have been using this cream at night, as it’s quite heavy, for two weeks and my arms feel soft to touch and the spots are far less visible. It is the first time in my life I have not felt embarrassed by my arms. Highly recommend for people with this skin condition. It does tingle a little when it goes on, but very mild and the sensation settles.

Maureen Gillanders

Brilliant product, love it. Skin has definitely improved despite being over 70! Only complaint is the product is so thick it's impossible to pump a last tenth out of the bottle. Whilst it's good the container is glass, a larger version of the plastic pump dispenser used for the face products may be better.

Rachel McGarrity

This product is fantastic. I have finished one bottle and have ordered another two! It has cleared up small red bumps on my upper arms and on my legs and my skin as a whole has become so much smoother. One bottle has lasted me about 5-6 weeks and it's tricky to pump the last bit of moisturizer out of the bottom of the bottle but I would still highly recommend this product!


It's an ok body cream but expensive

Sherrece Ollivierre

Exactly what i expected. Ive been using glycolic acid for almost a year and the results are amazing. Clears up my complaxion better than any other products. Always start with a low percentage 5% max so your skin can get use it


This is an amazing product! As I've got very dry skin, I've tried hundreds of body creams, lotions etc. but this one is absolutely magic. It's very rich and leaves my skin super soft and smooth, but quite hard to rub, so it might be a bit annoying at the beginning, but the results are definitely worth it. I also use it for my boyfriend's keratosis pilaris and I am actually surprised how good this works! Although, if you've got cuts or breakouts it's stinging a bit. Highly recommend! I've got rid of most of my skin problems with Facetheory and I absolutely live for this brand

Carrie Ann Lapornik

I find this product a bit too thick and it takes a while to absorb but when it did I didn't feel sticky. I have had to stop using as I don't like the odour. I hadn't used it long enough to see a noticable difference. I wouldn't order again.
