American Cream Body Lotion

   Waking up at 3:00am EST to buy a product might seem odd to some, but for many lushies who have discovered The Kitchen, it is a regular thing.
   A few weeks back, I was lucky enough to wake up around 6:00am and find that American Cream was still in stock... A product I had heard of for ages, but didn't get to experience before it was discontinued. I was treated to it by Mister, and waited patiently for two and a half weeks until this 225g pot arrived.

   "Bring all the boys to the yard with this smooth, sexy, vanilla milkshake scented lotion."

   My first impression of this product was that it is thinner than I expected, but I'm not sure why that surprised me too much, because I thought the same thing when I used the American Cream conditioner. Personally, I'm excited about this, because I purchased this as a transitioning-into-warm-weather lotion... But I can definitely see where someone who isn't used to potted lotions could scoop too much of this up at once. (I'm all about heavy lotions in the cold months, but in the summer I sweat so easily that I have to use thinner lotions and just apply extra during the day.)
    Unlike the conditioner, the body lotion IS Vegan, which seemed to be a high selling point from what I gathered among other lushies wanting to snag this product up while it was in the Kitchen... When it comes to scent, I am completely in love with the American Cream line, because it is a true vanilla scent. It is not like a vanilla cupcake, but rather more aged, if you will... Right behind the vanilla notes are that of either the strawberry, a more mature scent, or nuttiness of the almond... If you enjoy the natural and grounded over the sweet and candy, you'll love this.
   Either way, this lotion glides over and into the skin like a gem and you'll get waves of its scent throughout the day. With that being said, if used as an all-over body product, it does mask any other fragrances you may be wearing... Many say they can smell the hint of lavender, but I personally cannot. Maybe it is my skin's chemistry.
   All in all, I give this product a 5/5! It was exactly what I was hoping for, and more... Like smothering a classic vanilla milkshake all over my body... It is easily a new must-have for me whenever I can get my hands on it... It is a beautiful product, and I have jumped on the wagon with so many others for hopes that American Cream body lotion is brought back as a permanent item, if not in the US, at least in the UK.
