Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I had been having a problem this fall and winter with extreme skin dryness especially on my hands and elbows. I had tried many different products but was getting no relief. From the very first application of Ideal Body Balm, the flaky itchy patches that I had been experiencing on my hands and elbows disappeared. I apply once before bed and once in the morning and the moisturizing effect lasts throughout the day and I find that I do not need to use any other product. The only complaint that I have is that the fragrance is very strong for me, I would prefer a lighter scent or no scent. I am certainly glad that I tried this balm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing. "I got a sample of this Body balm a while back and I couldn't wait for it to come out in stores so I could buy more. I use it along with the body serum-milk and it has done so much for my dry skin this winter. I highly recommend this product and will definitely be buying more."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quenching Starting using this product a few days ago and I'm in ❤️. It has an amazing light scent that last all day. It's the best moisturizer I have ever used. Your body feels quenched but it doesn't stick to your clothes, it just provided a soothing barrier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally i found my HG body cream! This body balm moisturuzer is AMAZING! i have searched high and low for a really good ultra moisturizing body cream. i have tried Everything from so so many brands (ultra high end to drugstore brands) and no products clicked all my boxes. UNTIL i found this little gem. Reasons to why i am in love with this body cream... 1 - Its so so thick i believe it is the most thickes body cream i have ever seen. so thick and dense that room temp butter is softer then this. yes it absorbs into skin easyly without rubbing to much at all 2- it is so moisturizing i use a salicylic acid toner on my arms to treat KP ('chicken skin' bumps) so i tend to become dry due to this and this body balm takes care of any dryness so fast its phanomenal! 3- Its formulation is superior to so many others its LOADED with so many moisturizing properties PLUS antioxidants and a bit of LHA to exfoliate skin! 4- it smells devine it has a beautiful scent that resembles mango's with peaches & cream that is VERY delicate and not over powering at all (and yet the scent manages to last a long time on the skin). 5- the sheen and cosmetic glow it provides the skin. because of its ultra thick consistency it does give me that 'oily' sheen that looks so nice on my legs and arms plus the balm has VERY fine golden pearl colored 'mica' particles that make the skin glitsen and glow! this has NO glitter in any way shape or form.... just SUPER SUPER fine subtle light reflecting particles that make skin look amazing. thank you vichy for this amazing product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Lovely! I live in the desert and have dry mature skin so I was looking for something very moisturizing. I look for products loaded with beneficial skin ingredients and this body balm did. My skin looks lovely, is well moisturized and radiant. It's a reasonable price when you compare to others. Well worth it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feels so good This product feels good when applying. The balm feels like non-greasy butter and it smells like candy that lasts all day. Someone sensitive to scent might not be able to wear this product. For colder months when my skin is very dry this product works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! I bought this a couple of weeks ago and I love it. For mature skin it really does plump up the skin I can actually wear sleeveless tops now without my arms looking like sacks of skin. lol very pleased with body, hand and lip creams.
