Most Helpful Positive Review Nice oil
I got this as a deluxe sample from a lotion purchase i made. I love body oils and oil based soaps so i was pretty excited to open this.
I read the ingredients first and noticed the main ingredient was corn oil. Pretty disappointing considering the price. Corn oil is rather cheap. I decided to use it anyway and I?m so glad i did.
This glides on smoothly especially on damp skin. It actually is moisturizing and doesn't just sit on the surface of the skin. The smell, while pleasant, was a bit artificial to my nose but not so much that it would deter me from using it.
While i love oils, what i love even more is mixing them with lotions and in the end, i dumped the entire bottle into my 1L creme de corps bottle. Creme de corps is already very rich and doesn't need much help from an oil but i found the deluxe sample added just enough slip to make the lotion a tad lighter. It comes out of the pump much better, settles in the bottle a little more, goes on easier and made the smell ever so slightly vanilla.
Bottomline; while it is expensive for what it is, it does what it says it does and is a worthwhile purchase on sale. The deluxe sample sized ones will be part of my regular rotation specifically to thin out and fragrance Creme de Corp lotion just enough.
Most Helpful Critical Review Left Feeling Greasy / VERY intense scent
I want to start by saying that I absolutely LOVE (almost) all of my Kiehl?s products and am so grateful to have found such an amazing brand. However, I was recently disappointed after ordering a bottle of the Creme de Corps Nourishing Dry Body Oil. I purchased this product in hopes of alleviating some of the dryness on my arms, but alas was unsatisfied with the result for a couple of reasons. The Product Details on Kieh?s website lists that the spray is ?residue-free and dry to the touch?. I have had an opposite result, as my palms are left with an uncomfortable, greasy feeling after use. The scent is also very strong, and does not fade (which I suppose would be nice if you enjoyed the strong vanilla aroma). So much to the point that I have had to choose between the spray or a perfume the few times that I did try the product. Overall, I was not satisfied with the product and will be returning it. I'm rating this product Fair and not Poor because I realize that the scent is subjective.

Goes on and feels silky smooth, also spray on my hands rub them together and put on my hair, makes it shiny but not oily, love the multiple uses for this!!
MissyAllie from Houston
I never write reviews but after reading some of the reviews for this oil I decided I had to write a review.
I'm over 60 and my skin has gone from oily in my youth to dry in my mature years.
This oil has become a necessary part of my daily routine. After my shower I spray it all over, it not only softens my skin but gives it a beautiful glow.
I love this product.
SFPatrick from Maryland
This oil is too light and does not spread easily. I have dry skin, so I need something more moisturizing. Additionally, the scent is too sugary-sweet. I prefer the spicy, botanical fragrances in most of the other skincare products.
Love the smell
E 620 from New York
I put this on my knees every night before bed. In the morning I spray it all over my body and then put an unscented body lotion on top. I will never wrinkle!!!!
browngirl from bronx, ny
this is my absolute favorite! pairs well with my moisturizers or wears well by itself. I keep a small bottle in my bag as well. i love the scent!
My skin is so soft
Anitack123 from San Diego CA
I have only been using this for a few days and I can already see the difference. My skin feels so soft. I love this oil.
Dali from Glendale CA
Oh my gosh this body oil works so well. After removing your body hair you have to apply this! It's so smooth and not thick at all so it doesn't need feel like it clogs my pores!
TB from Addison, TX
Best dry body oil I've found but it is pricey for the size. Smells soooo good. Idk why someone would say it was strong. It isn't at all.
Deb from Ypsi
It's very light. I spray just once for my face and it adds the extra bit of moisture that my face lotion alone does not provide.
Teena Marie from Dallas
I hate putting on lotions because they are always so thick and some oils never absorb into the skin but this one smells wonderful and does not take forever to seep into your skin. I feel so soft and love that it's a spray bottle too!
too much of a strong fragrance
gus2424 from nyc
i guess it works but that scent is WAY TOO STRONG! i loved creme de corps but the yellow color rubs off on white clothing so i thought this product would work...ive never had a problem with kiehls products being too strongly scented until now.....so i was very surprised that this oil has an artifical almond scent. i plan to attempt to return it.
Legit dry oil
Candace from Sparta, NJ
So I would definitely use this product right after the shower.. keep damp so it rubs in easily after you spray. I would also wait for product to dry before clothes or jammies.
JLM from Ct
The bottle is small which is why it gets 4 stars. Smells delicious and really nice feeling on the skin.
Leah from East Coast
I'm in love with this oil!! It smells amazing and leaves my body super moisturized! I have really bad eczema that flares up when it starts to get cold and this has really helped me not break out. I highly recommend if you want to stay moisturized and smell good :) (ps the smell lasts a long time if you put it on after body lotion- I use the one by Kiehls)
My Husband Loves This!
Rhonda from TX
My husband uses this for his winter-dry skin. He hates applying lotion and he says he loves how fast the oil dries. I'm happy he's actually using it bc I am usually the one who applies lotion to his body when I see how dry it is. I bought a second bottle during discount.
my first body oil
mechee55 from Los Angeles, CA, USA
I've always loved the idea of applying body oil, but I hated the idea of feeling greasy.
Then I met this beauty..
I'm SO in love with this product. The spray bottle makes it super easy. And most of all, it's NOT greasy at all. I apply it right out of the shower, and my legs don't get dry all day.
I love the scent too. It's very subtle, and even after 14 hours, you can still smell it lightly.
I will be buying my second bottle!
Lovely body oil with a pleasant smell
jlc7 from Glendale, CA
I love using this body oil after I get out of the shower, it's so much faster than pumping out and applying moisturizer. I just spray myself from the neck down and rub it in, and it smells wonderful, kind of nutty/almond-y. I consider it to be the height of luxury in moisturizers. It can get greasy if you spray too much but with the right amount it absorbs well and doesn't grease up my clothes or anything.
I always have a backup of this product.
boymom from Kentucky
I use this body oil after a shower in the morning or at night. Not to greasy or slippery. Doesn't have an overpowering smell. Being a product junkie, I have tried many body oils across all price points, this is one of my favs.
Overpowering chemical smell, or it had gone bad
Jessica J from Santa Clara
I ordered this product online after having it recommended to me by others. The smell was atrocious. I'm not sure if the product had gone bad, but even after I took a shower, the smell was still stuck on my skin and I had to use vinegar to remove it. It is by far the worst smelling product I've ever used. My skin did have a nice glow, however, so I will give it that.
Great on legs and arms!
AliGab from undisclosed
I apply this on my arms and legs in spring & summer or whenever I'm wearing short sleeves or dresses. The oil moisturizes and leaves a lovely glow on the skin. I don't use it all over the body though, I prefer an unscented light cream for that. I was surprised that some reviewers didn't like the scent. It's very light and fresh, but I guess, like perfume, the ingredients react to each person's body chemistry. It's best to try in the store or with a sample, just to be sure. Overall, I am very pleased with the results. It makes my legs look good!
Scent and Feeling
Sardidii from Long Island, NY
This smells amazing. It has a light scent and it absorbs quickly. I love it.
Please bring back superbly restorative argan dry oil
Blondest from undisclosed
I used to buy the superbly restorative argan dry oil by the threes. I am so sad it is discontinued. I recently ordered the replacement and I am so disappointed. The smell is horrible. Like a bad cherry car air freshener. Doesn?t absorb the same. I loved the scent of the other. I was quite surprised at the large difference in quality for this price. Also much smaller bottle. Please bring back the restorative argan dry oil!!!
Doesn?t Compare to Superbly Restorative Oil
Slthomas123 from undisclosed
For some reason. Kiehl?s discontinued the Superbly Restorative Dry Oil, which was the most amazing product EVER. The Creme de Corps doesn?t hold a candle to the Superbly Resorative Oil! It?s greasy, doesn?t absorb as well, and the ingredients aren?t as quality. I?m devastated they discontinued a fantastic (my favorite) product...I will not keep using the Creme de Corps Oil. Kiehl?s, PLEASE bring back Superbly Restorative Dry Oil!
Love feel and the smell!!!!
Elaina from undisclosed
Makes me feel like I am in Hawaii every time I use it!!!
Danielle from Wisconsin
I absolutely LOVE this product! I've repurchased and would like to do so again. It's so moisturizing, quick to apply, and smells amazing! I especially love applying right after the shower when my skin is slightly damp. However, I was sad to recently discover Kiehl's is not cruelty free. Otherwise, I would have rated 5 stars based on the product alone. Now, I'm torn on what to do and afraid I won't repurchase. Please Kiehl's, become cruelty free as I love your products and so glad Ulta sells them now.
