End of August 2016 when I went to Sephora, I saw this body moisturizer from It's Skin. If you are like me, I didn't know much about this brand other than it's Korean. I looked on their website and Kim, Yuna, a famous ice skater, is the brand model. That tells me that it's a well-known brand and it does well in Korea. Anyways for this post, I will review their body cream.

Thoughts: In all honesty, I purchased because of the cuteness. I swear packaging can sell me anytime. It's the worst when it comes to Asian products especially from Korea and Japan. They're just so adorable!
Here's a closer look at the packaging without the paper package.
Here's a closer look at the inside when you open the top.
Here's a swatch of the body cream on my hand.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's a slight scent. It smells like strawberry yogurt. It has that thick, creamy yogurt smell if that makes sense. If you're not into this type of smell, it only lasts for couple of minutes. It's extremely light and fresh. Secondly, the packaging is adorable! It really does look like a mini ice cream container. You do have to be careful. Somebody who might not know it's a moisturizer might eat it. I love how they have do not eat symbol on the paper packaging but it's not on the container itself. With that said, the container is sturdy and well-made. When you close the container, it's tight and will not loosely open up. It makes it very travel-friendly. Sanitary-wise, on the other hand, it's not the best. You do have to dip your fingers into the product. Third, the consistency is in the middle. It's not light like a lotion and it's not thick like a heavy, duty cream. It is a cream but on the thin side. It's great for all skin types. When it comes to winter weather, I cannot see this hydrating my dry skin. Other than winter, it'll be great. I also like that the black chips are not hard. While applying it onto the skin, you cannot distinguish the difference of feel from the white part to the black. They feel the same. You just see the black chips spreading while massaging and then disappearing onto the skin. If you're inpatient and don't like massaging, this might not be for you. In my opinion, I think it's great for us to just sit there and massage our skin. It deserves some pampering. With that said, it's easy to use. Lastly, my skin loves the product. It absorbs quickly onto the skin. After I apply the cream, it feels soft and hydrated. It's long lasting and just plain fun!
