I'm sometimes flaky (my skin, that is). Winter can cause peeling patches on my legs so, for the past three weeks, I've been testing a new product for extremely dry skin – Biotherm Baume Ultra Riche.
When squeezing the tube, I was first surprised how thick the cream felt (a dime-sized amount covered my entire leg and foot). It's rich with omega fats – which cut inflammation and irritation – and nourishing shea butter. I can definitely notice a difference in looks and appearance. This body balm lives up to its claim of intensive repairing and nourishment, but, be forewarned, it also includes apricot oil and pulp. This helps skin retain elasticity, clarity, and suppleness with an accompanying fruity aroma. At $23, the lotion's on the pricier side for this economy. But, since a little goes such a long way, I'd say it's worth the investment.
