H&M recently launched their beauty line and I have had it on my mind pop in the store to check it out. After a recent lunch with Danielle, aka The Style and Beauty Doctor, we made a quick stop at H&M in midtown to browse the beauty offerings. Since I have dry skin that gets itchy and even drier as it gets colder, I decided I definitely needed to try the body cream -- after all, winter is coming!
I picked up Urban Verve Body Body Cream -- described as "A rich, hydrating body cream with an energizing bergamot and vetiver fragrance." I love the fragrance. It's light, fresh and doesn't compete with my perfume du jour. Formulatedwith sunflower seed oil, shea butter, vitamin E and other skin loving ingredients, the lightweight cream is easily applied and appears to sink into the skin. However, it doesn't provide a lot of moisture. It left my skin feeling almost matte. I don't necessarily want to feel oily but the "supple" feeling I was expecting was not present. #WompWomp.
Bottom Line: Urban Verve Body Body Cream is not at all ideal for my fall/winter body care needs but may be just what I need for summer when there is more moisture and humidity in the air.
Have you tried the H&M Body Cream? What are your thoughts?
