Clinique Deep Comfort Body Butter
About: Luxurious rich body cream suited to dryness-prone skin. Packaged in a large jar with twist lid.
Review: I have been applying this indulgent body butter on my sensitive skin, every night, directly after showering and while skin is still slightly damp. The result is pure, calming relief, as it targets itchy, flaky areas and general dryness. It nurtures and soothes my skin, alleviating redness and inflammation. During this trial, I’ve truly experienced the remedial comfort that Clinique Deep Comfort Body Butter provides. I have determined that the gentle emollient formula works wonders as a post hair removal treatment, allowing me to avoid angry, red skin post shaving. Slathering the cream on afterward helps my skin to recover quickly, locking in long-lasting moisture and preventing the discomfort and irritability associated with shaving and hair removal.
Clinique Deep Comfort Body Butter bestows very little fragrance; in fact the neutral scent is so subtle that I can barely smell anything at all, even when it’s directly under my nose (and Clinique claims that all products are fragrance-free). While the nourishing formula is heavy and takes some time to absorb, I only need a small amount to adequately moisturise my whole body, hence a little goes a long way. Thankfully, the full-bodied cream doesn’t create a greasy, sticky surface residual; instead, it soaks right in and my skin is immediately left silky smooth, soft, supple and intensely hydrated.
Although I think Deep Comfort Body Butter is effective and suitable for anyone who desires a hydrating formulation that is non-irritatin, I believe it has a few cons to point out as well. Despite my sensitive skin issues and the need to avoid artificial fragrances, I do have a weakness for deliciously scented body products, especially when they boast delectable natural aromas, so I tend to find unscented lotions like this one dull and boring. I also would prefer a moisturiser infused with sunscreen properties of at least SPF 15 to meet my daytime skin care needs therefore I’m only currently using it at night. Finally, Deep Comfort Body Butter is on the expensive side and I personally believe there are cheaper alternatives, which are equally good, if not better and delivering more benefits than just skin softening. I do like the therapeutic effect I’ve managed to achieve when using the Clinique Deep Comfort Body Butter and will continue enjoying this tube; however, I wouldn’t consider spending in excess of $50 to purchase it in the near future.
