My Experience with Grace Cole Magnolia and Vanilla Softening Body Cream:
This cream comes in a beautiful tube packaging. I really love the way the tube looks and it is, infact great looking for gifting purposes… That is the part of its charm! Unfortunately here itself the honeymoon ends!
I am very disappointed with the product…which explains my grouchiness: x First of all, why mention it is Grace Cole from UK, when it is made in China? Why the attempt to mislead the customers? There are plenty of good things that are Chinese made…be honest!
Now this cream is not even a cream. It is a lotion. A lotion that looks diluted…with a funny texture. It smells very chemical perfume-y in the beginning. Forget about the Vanilla Magnolia scent all together. While it is pleasant, it is not really that great too.
The smell will not last for even 10 minutes. Why should you spend so much on a scented cream, when it does not even perfume your skin! I will not even call it a decent moisturizer. So dry skinned ladies…just stay miles away. This product is definitely not for you.
Now the lotion itself (I will not call it cream, sorry girls); gets absorbed really quickly. That would be really a great plus point, but wait…just wait! The softness also vanishes as quickly as the cream is applied. It is like applying any local cream. Quite frankly many local brands have much better performance. It retails for 695+ in India, while it costs a mere 4 GBP actually. On top of it, it is a very bad moisturizer. The ingredient list also shows a truckload of chemicals as you can see.
I cannot begin to tell how much this product has put me off!
