bliss Lemon+Sage Body Butter Maximum Moisture Cream review + swatch

I first bought this body butter as a filler item for my Sephora order last year and bought it again in one of my most recent orders. It was $7 for 50 mL the first time but the price has since been raised to $10. It also comes in a 200 mL size for $35 but I have seen the 'super size' which is 414 mL for around $30 at Winners!! Very tempted to buy it whenever I see it.

"A maximum-moisture, best-selling cream with a luxuriously rich texture."

My favourite thing about this is the smell! I really love lemony and fresh smelling things so this scent is perfect for me. The sage definitely makes it seem different and helps to tune down the lemon a bit. This is also more of a light lemon smell and does not smell super sweet. The smell lingers for around 30 mins - 1 hour on your skin but even then, it is not as strong as when you first apply it.

The texture of this cream is also light; it is not as thick as other body butters but also not too runny so it is very easy to spread. It is thick enough that it won't drip off you when you squeeze it on your skin and not so thin that it is like a runny lotion. When applied It isn't too greasy and really absorbs into the skin quickly. Since it isn't so thick, it is also good for hand cream and the 50 mL size makes it very portable as well.

In terms of the moisturizing, I'd have to say that it is also light and not 'maximum moisture' like they claim. It is sufficient for my dry skin but it does not make my skin feel as smooth as other body butters do. The feeling is probably equivalent to how your skin is when it is wet? It is fine for my skin in the winter but I prefer it more for summer since I need some light moisturizing then.

I really like this body butter for the summer so I will probably keep buying it if I ever need filler items. Similar to the Tony Moly Peach Anti-Aging Hand Cream, the performance isn't as great as some would expect but the smell is worth it for me ;)
