The delightfully rich, lush cream has a consistency of thick whipped cream. It's creamy and literally drenches the skin in nourishing moisture with its blend of real honey and green tea extract. Better still, it sinks right in and doesn't leave a greasy film behind -- instead, skin is left glowing, bright and instantly softer than seconds before. How is this accomplished? Why, with an amazing blend of extracts and oils designed to nourish and protect skin, of course! You'll find all of the following within the tub:
cocoa seed butter
gingko biloba leaf extract
wheat germ oil
My favorite, absolute ingenious part of the formula, however, is the miniature drops of honey that have been baked into the formula. Each one bursts on contact with the skin and blends immediately -- the end result is a subtle sheen that's perfect for tanned summer legs peeking out of miniskirts. I've been continuously slathering this moisturizer all over my legs, knees and elbows -- and within a matter of days, they've gone from rough and ashy to glistening and smooth.
Best of all, the scent isn't at all overpowering. The green tea and honey create a delectably sweet aroma that, rather than coming across as cloying, is fresh and clean-smelling. It actually cuts down on the need for perfume!
So go ahead, honey.
