This cream was given to me by a friend who 'couldn't get along with it'. I therefore decided to give it a go but after her comments having no great hopes.

The cream that you buy from the Body Shop is in a 50ml plastic tub with a screw lid. It is pink colour with the label clearly displaying what it is on the top of the tub. The actual tub that I was given was a trial size tub of 15 ml.

Normally I would list all the ingredients but there are so many that I won't, but I can tell you that they do not test their products on animals and use fair trade cocoa beans for the coco butter that is in this product.

The directions state that you should apply this cream to the face and neck after cleansing and toning, using your fingertips, before going to bed. When you open the tub and look at the cream it appears quite thick. However when you actually scoop some of this out it isn't as thick as it looks. It applies quite easily to the face but it is a very rich cream and only a small amount is needed. I found that this cream was very good if you have dry skin. However, it does leave a slight sheen on the face and I wouldn't advise people who have greasy skin to use this product. When I woke up in the morning my face felt a lot softer and it seemed to have done the trick.

The price for a 50 ml tub is £9.75 from the Body Shop but it does last a long time. However, I would try to get this prouduct maybe from Ebay as it can be sometimes a lot cheaper.

My own opinion is that I really liked this cream, but then I have dry skin. I think this is definately a night cream only and think I would find this too heavy for a day time cream. I think the price at first seems a little steep but on reflection it isn't too bad as it seems to last such a long time. I also think that with the way the Body Shop operates I feel a lot happier knowing that they have very stong morals on animal testing and fair trade which makes it all in all a very good purchase. I would reccommend this as it is a very effective cream.
