Product Review: Bioelements Vitalization Rich Intensity Body Cream

Just because the weather's warming up, doesn't mean we have to toss our luxurious body creams. With that in mind, I recently tried out the Bioelements Vitalization Rich Intensity Body Creme ($50), and let me tell you, it does not fool around when it comes to moisture.

This rich body cream is formulated with shea butter, botanicals, red tea, and beta-carotines. It comes in a tub, which triggers a mild attack of germophobia. The texture is thick and yogurt-like, and it goes on a little sticky and takes awhile to rub in, but the results are worth the effort: my skin was smooth and silky as can be. But, because the absorption time is longer than most moisturizers, it's probably better for nighttime use.

My favorite part about this moisturizer is the fact that it is virtually fragrance-free. Judging by the container and the weight of the product, I was prepared for an overly-fragrant, olfactory assault. Instead I was greeted with only a hint of spicy botanicals. Lovely.

My feelings on this product are mixed, mostly because of the high price tag ($50). I would recommend this cream if you have a hankering for some serious moisture, are fed up with overly-fragranced products, and don't mind shoving your mitts in an big tub of goop, and have $50 burning a hole in your pocket. There's no doubt your skin will thank you.

I think it's a little pricey for body cream...and I'm not loving the tub, either. I've been using Burt's Bees Naturally Nourishing Body Lotion lately and I love it.
