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.

I use this religiously after each shower. I no longer have to use heavy moisturizers, and once I apply this, I'm dry enough that I can get dressed immediately, unlike moisturizers and creams that take a while to soak in. I've been using this for over 2 years, and I won't be without it. I gave some along with oil soap shower gel to my 93-year-old father, who has dry, flaky skin. He loves it, and so do the home health aides!
Love the oil but not the scent
fltatt1 from Lutz, FL
I took a star away because of the smell. I've used other dry oil sprays that the scent absorbs along with the oil. This doesn't! This is a no for me.
Please bring back Argan dry oil
Pixie116 from NYC
This scent is far too sweet and old lady smelling: vanilla & almond. Please bring back the Argan dry oil!
After shower luxury
PeterB from Enfield Ct.
Dry brush body, take a shower, apply this great stuff, so relaxing. Silky smooth skin, not oily, absorbs quick. Smells like vanilla almonds. Very nice. Try it you will enjoy for sure.
Of all the Kiehls products I love, this is best
kyclone from union, ky.
I love, love, love this product. It does feel luxurious, just like Kiehls promotes. Leaves my skin hydrated, even in the nasty winter months.
I love this!!
TS from Colorado
I noticed a difference after the fist use! No strong smell, it's not an oily oil. Just leaves skin feeling soft and smooth. You don't need to rub it in very much for it to absorb into your skin. Will definitely buy again.
I Could Not Love This Product More!!!
Margaret D from Columbia, TN
This is an absolute skin saver for me! I like my hot showers and I've neglected moisturizing my legs for too long — I'm always in too much of a hurry or am too lazy. This Creme de Corps Nourishing Dry Body Oil absolutely makes my legs presentable again! I use my exfoliating gloves in the shower every week or so, spritz this on after patting dry and my skin drinks it in to be hydrated and healthy looking. The soft scent is divine, too!
BkaV from Midwest, USA
This is a great oil. I layer it with lotion after. I hate the feeling of dry itchy skin in the winter and this helps keep my skin moisturized. My husband likes the smell, which is a bonus. I just feel that it's overpriced. I just got the 5.9oz bottle about a week ago and over an inch is already gone.
Love this body oil but hate the smell
kwbk from Brooklyn, NY
This works really well to hydrate my skin and it soaks in fast which I love. I really dislike the smell. It smells like a public bathroom air freshener. Luckily the scent doesnt last throughout the day. I do wish that it either smelled more like the creme de corps lotion or that there was an unscented version...better yet some other scents to choose from
Poorly packaged; dislike scent
Tex1983 from Austin, Texas
The concept of this dry oil is excellent, especially for people with really dry skin. It works best when my skin is still damp right out of shower.
However, the pump isn't built right for this. Unless you hold it right up to your skin (which concentrates it one area), it goes everywhere and makes surfaces very, very slippery. I've tried spraying it into my hands and spreading like lotion, but it doesn't work as well.
Second, the smell has a few too many hints of baby powder for my liking.
Good product but fragrance not appealing
Bay Area Dweller from undisclosed
Received a sample of the product and tried it on my dry skin. Agree with the claim that it has a lightweight texture. Unfortunately the fragrance (vanilla and almond?) comes across like a cheap sunscreen. How about a fragrance-free version?
KristiJ from Allen, TX
Loving this body oil! It dries without oily residue so does not affect your clothing. And skin feels soft and hydrated.
Kandinsy from New York, NY
Works ok but can't get over its very strong and sweet coconut-like smell. It smells like cheap perfume. Please bring back Argan oil.
Finally an oil that has the right "mist" spray!
MrsStacieS from Warsaw, MO
I have very dry skin & like using an oil and a lotion after showering while still damp so it penetrates better & works longer. This oil actually has a great mist instead of a stream so it's way easier to apply all over evenly. It has a very light & very pleasant scent of vanilla & almonds that pairs well with my bod wash, lotions & perfumes. Leaves my skin so soft and after over 3 weeks, my skin is healthier overall & looks so good, even glowy. Such a keeper! If you have dry skin, it's a must try. It absorbs quickly & theres no greasy feel to your skin, just softness. Lovin it!
Excellent to use as a layering lotion or by itself
Herecka from West New York, NJ
Shortly after using the product all summer long, it is now my go to for the summer season, as well as after regularly swimming. It is so easy to put on and you even get your hard to reach places covered. Your skin also glows after. Thank you, Kiehl's.
I have purchased this dry body oil over and over again!
Sandy from IL
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!
