LAFCO New York Chamomile Lavender Nourishing Body Cream and Reparative Hand Cream Review

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?

  1. I've never heard of this brand either. That's too bad about the scent!! It sounds like it would smell good so that's a bummer. I hope their other scents are better. Thanks for sharing your honest thoughts Kim!

  2. I love the packaging of these products and also how thick the cream is but it's too bad the scent is not what you expected, I wouldn't want a cream that does not smell nice on my skin.


  3. The packaging of these products looks lovely but the scent would not appeal to me at all - and it sounds like it didn't really appeal to you, either! With thirteen varieties, however, there might be a better scent and the consistency does look very good.

  4. Shame that the products didn't impress you! It sounds like an interesting scent, but I hate lavender anything so that would put me off these from the beginning!

    Hope you have had a wonderful weekend Kim :)

  7. I didn't realize they made skincare! I like their candle scents and have a few of their candles, but haven't tested them out yet!

  8. Kim, I know of Lafco from their fancy soaps. The formulation of both of these sound really nice. It's a shame that the scent was off like that. No one wants to use anything that smells sour O_o

  9. It sounds like this would be a lovely scented lotion for daily wear. It is too bad the smell and moisture are not what they should be.

  10. Bummer about the scent because it sounds like it SHOULD be amazing! Oh well!

  11. I haven't heard of this brand. Sorry you didn't like the scent. I know I won't use a lotion if I don't like how it smells.

  12. Thanks for your honest review of these! Sorry the scent didn't work for you!

  13. sorry it didnt work for you


  14. No, I have never heard of this brand before nor did I ever read about them online. Shame that the scent was not your cup of tea and the formula wasn't hydrating enough but I love you for being honest as always, Kim! xx

  15. The packaging does look so luxe... too bad it was not up to par.

  16. Chamomile lavender sounds so soothing and calming. Must smell so fragrant.
