Face Off: Kiehl's Creme de Corps Lotion vs. Fresh Seaberry Restorative Body Cream


Something has been troubling me lately. I find myself asking the same question over and over, with little resolution. The thought that's been gnawing at me? I simply cannot seem to decide which is better, Kiehl's Creme de Corps or Fresh Seaberry Lotion. To absolve myself of the beauty voices in my head and in the same vein of my Prove It! challenges, I'm launching a new initiative: Face Off.   

Face Off will take two similar products and pit them against each other in order to compare the main selling points of each. The first Face Off falls under what I call the Basic Beauty category: body lotion. While it doesn't have the glitz and glam of a bold lipstick, a good body lotion can transform your skin and serves as a vital part of my personal daily beauty ritual. After recently discovering Kiehl's and Fresh's lotions, I fell for both of them pretty hard and now cannot seem to figure out which one to buy full size.

Allow me to introduce you to The Face Off contenders: Kiehl's Creme de Corps versus Fresh Seaberry Restorative Body Cream.

And the winner is... still not clear to me. If you see a clear winner or have a preference based on trying either product, please help me out on this one by letting me know which you'd choose.
