Body moisturizer by Principessa Beauty

Add resource

Great for everything but feet.

It's not a great foot cream compared to another one this site offers, but it will do the job acceptably if you put on socks after applying - just don't expect great results. It's a decent cream for sunburns, somewhat dry skin, and just for the nice smell it has.
Published:
Pros:
Smells great, works for most skin types, good for sunburns if you're not allergic to anything.
Cons:
Doesn't work on softening feet at all, won't absorb into rough areas of skin well.

Use

I've used this for sunburns, dry hands, and as an after-shower moisturizer. This isn't the greatest at moisturizing on actual dry skin, as it sits on top of the skin for quite some time, making things rather slick. I've found it's best if you use it right after a shower, when your skin's still soft and wet.
If you don't have any allergies and just want to smell nice while slightly moisturizing the skin, it's a decent product.

There are some allergy concerns, as it contains the following: glycerin, olive extract, orange fruit extract, lemon fruit extract. (Random item: it lists Cetyl Alcohol twice.)

    • Massage

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

It's rather "fluffy-looking" in texture and kind of on the greasy side. It's really easy to dispense, and you don't need too much if you're applying it to your skin after a shower. With dry skin you'll need a bit more. It sits on top of the skin for about 20 minutes after vigorously applying it (yes, a lot of rubbing is needed to make it blend in, unlike other lotions or another favorite foot cream of mine) and makes things rather slippery, which is rather disconcerting, considering what it's made for.

    • Smooth
    • Velvety

Taste / Aroma

The smell is feminine, - no other label fits it quite so well. It's a combination of light smells, consisting of powder, vanilla, flowers, and sugar. I enjoy the smell and sometimes just dab a bit on my neck and wrists as a perfume of sorts.

I certainly did not taste it, not even for science. I'd imagine it'd taste horrible and like baby powder.
    • Light smell
    • Smells good

Performance

For a 4.2 ounce bottle, it's still mostly full, and I do use it about once-twice a week, so it's not a bad amount for the price. If you want to wash it off, you will have to use soap and warm water, as just using water will do nothing but feel as though a patch of skin is waterproof. The main thing I like about this is the nice, clean smell it has.

Here is a picture showing it slightly massaged into my hand.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Allergy concerns
    • Reapply often

Personal comments

The Intimate Organics Foot Foreplay that Eden carries is SO much better for foot softening.

Experience

I almost cracked my head open after trying to walk after applying the lotion to my feet (I waited about 10 minutes, the usual for my lotions). I decided if I were to use this on my feet again, I'd put on socks to keep the moisturizer on and prevent myself from falling again. It worked much better as a sunburn soother than a foot cream, sadly. I was ecstatic to heal from my sunburn quicker than I'm used to and to have minimal peeling.

    I'm sorry this didn't work. That seems to be the deal with any foot creams that I have tried .

    Really great review! So sorry you were let down with the results. For the price of this, I wouldn't be able to help but expect fabulous results, so I'll have to skip it or I'd end up angry. Lol. I have found a lot of really awesome foot creams, some even natural! I use my professional foot massage lotion most often for just daily moisturization. I like it because there's no need for leaving socks on overnight. You slather it on your tootsies and go!
