Worth The Hype? Kiehl's Creme de Corps

Kiehl's is known for amazing skincare. Their Creme de Corps is their 4th best seller, celebrity favourite and original formula. I have 2 deluxe samples of this I have been trialing over a month because I wanted to know, is this worth the hype?

Starting from $30 for the smallest bottle available, this moisturiser has been seen everywhere from Miranda's night table on Sex and the City to Kate Moss, Nicole Richie and Katie Holmes. This all over body moisturiser is a cult favourite.
Even artist Jeff Koons has collaborated with the brand to make limited edition packaging as well as other artists.
When people are buying a product for the limited edition packing, then you know it has a dedicated following.

This cream is very thick and a little hard to get out of the bottle, so I would much rather a pump or a tube. There is no overwhelming scent, just a slight hint of cocoa butter.
While I found this very moisturising, it was hard to spread evenly and I felt like it took forever to absorb. I was left with that wet sticky feeling until my next shower which isn't the most pleasant feeling.
I didn't see anything spectacular in the ingredients list and it reminded me of the much more affordable Palmer's cocoa butter.
I could see myself using this at night during winter, perhaps on my legs or smothering my feet in this before slipping on a pair of thick socks. However, with the higher price tag, I feel there are better options that are a lot more affordable and more accessible.

Overhyped or Underhyped?
