LAFCO New York Chamomile Lavender Nourishing Body Cream and Reparative Hand Cream Review
Monday, March 27, 2017
Sponsored: I was sent a bottle of LAFCO New York's Chamomile Lavender Nourishing Body Cream and Reparative Hand Cream for review. I want to preface this review by saying, usually I approve products before they are sent to me. These were sent to me without my approval. However, when I received them, I was very smitten with the packaging. The product is housed in beautiful glossy plastic packaging, with black grosgrain ribbon, and overall the packaging is sleek & sophisticated. Both the body cream and hand cream are white & creamy. The problem I have is with the scent. Both come across as a musk (masculine) and a little sour. I looked at the consistency of the lotion (thinking maybe the shelf life had expired etc). but I didn't detect that anything had turned etc. Both are Vegan, not tested on animals and good for 12 months after opening. This scent didn't agree with me, but both are available in 13 scents (so maybe the other ones would suit me better). Now the formula! My skin felt soft after using these, but not moisturized. The consistency is very light, so I don't see this working for someone with dry skin (like me). So, I don't know if it's just the scent or what! Neither appealed to me. This was my first time hearing about LAFCO. Have you tried any of their products?
