      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Not a great product for anyone with sensitive skin.

      I received a tub of this cream as part of a christmas gift set, it is in a pink, screw top plastic tub, as pictured above and the cream itself is a bright and glossy white colour.

      The first thing that hit me when I unscrewed the lid is the smell, which very unusually for an FCUK product was very synthetic and floral, not particularly pleasent to my nose. However, I had run out of the FCUK shea butter spray which I usually use on my very dry shins every morning and so I broke this one open thinking it would do fine as a replacement until I had chance to get some more.

      I really wish I had not done this.

      Applying the cream itself was fine, although I noticed that it did not seem to sink in very well and certainly not with any haste, five minutes after applying my legs still felt very greasy and the smell is really not my cup of tea at all, I have to say, in my opinion, this smells like a pretty cheap product, not rich and sweet smelling like other FCUK products I use.

      Despite the greasiness I got dressed and went off to work as normal. Half way through the morning I was in a meeting when my shins started itching like crazy. I immediately knew this was in some way linked to the cream. I was pretty busy at work however so just tried my best to ignore it, occasionally succombing to a good old scratch.

      By the time I got home I had scratched one shin until it bled. Both were mottled red and evidently had had a very bad reaction to this cream. I bathed my legs and applied baby oil to try and settle the skin, I had to do this every day for about 5 days before the itching and rash finally subsided. I will NEVER use this cream again.

      I do think that for anyone with sensitive skin this product is just too heavily scented, it isnt even a nice scent. Personally I was very surprised with the violent reaction as usually this range of products is fine, I have gone back to the shea butter spray and all is well. But just be careful with this if you are prone to reactions, in my experience it is not worth the risk.

      This product is unavailable to buy on its own (from Boots at least) but was part of a gift set which retailed at £15.

        ..

        I'm forever buying creams, potions, lotions and even powders which half the time I have no use for or I don't even like so of course when spotting a hot pink tub of FCUK Cream Up body cream I just had to get it to add to my collection. This was was different though - I actually liked it .. the tub, the cream - everything so it wasn't launched in a drawer to catch dust for months until I decided to throw it in the bin.

        This cream just screams girly and feminine before you even read about it or look at the cream inside - the pot is a stunning hot pink - that's girly enough right! FCUK Cream Up Body cream it says on the front of this 200ml pot - quite a fair chunky size to be honest.

        On the back of the tub you are told to 'Cream Up Your Skin and seriously moisturise with this luxurious body cream containing Coconut Oil. You will instantly fall in love with your new luscious skin.'

        The cream itself is a pure white, creamy yet quite a runny consistency - not thin or watery though. It is a very summery, refreshingly fruity scent - can't smell coconut though. Although it is quite runny I find it absorbs into my skin quickly and the scent sticks for quite a while without dying down. It leaves me smelling just bathed and sprayed for a good while as well as leaving my skin feeling soft. It is a cooling and refreshing cream when it is a hot summers day and it really cools me down if I rub a little in. A little really does go along way cream and smell wise. I even use this to moisturise my skin when applying fake tan and even on my face mixed in with the tanning agent too - the smell is stunning.

        I bought this cream months ago in Boots and use it quite regularly but like I said a little does go along way and I havn't needed to use loads to feel any effects on my skin. I feel my skin is smoother and softer while I use this cream so it must be doing something right as well as leaving me smelling beautifully fresh. I'd reccomend this to any woman I really don't think there is an age thing with it as the smell could appeal to anybody.

          Recommend it.

          My friend gave this to me along with a few other bits the other day, unused as a gift for my birthday so I thought I'd try it out. I've always been a fan of fcuk stuff, normally good quality. I liked the look of it at first because it is PINK, and I fall in love with all things pink instantly! It came in a small and neat 50ml tub which is very convenient, looks cute. It has a light pink tub with a darker shade of pink writing, very simple and effective.

          It has an easy screwtop lid, when I opened it the first thing I noticed was that it was full to the top which you don't get with a lot of products like this. The lotion is white, very smooth like a body butter. The smell is so lovely, I could smell it as soon as I opened it. It smells so fresh, almost fruity and summery. This can be used anywhere on the body - face, arms, legs, hands...

          I tried some on my hands, and it felt very smooth and I found out you don't need to use too much. It rubs in easily and effortlessly, leaving your skin feeling very fresh and smooth to the touch. It also smells really lovely on your skin.

          I mostly use this for my hands and face, I love the soft feel. Also another thing, this doesn't need to be re-applied during the day as your skin stays feeling smooth throughout.

          Overall I was quite impressed with this product and would probably use it again. I love how fresh it smells and feels on your skin most of all, doesn't feel greasy at all and you can't even tell you have it on. Recommended to all girly females.

          Very good

          I got this at a discount price at a large shop at Bluewater. The packaging is very girly and I was surprised to find that it was actually filled to the brim with product, unlike other body creams available.
          The smell is so nice, it leaves the skin feeling beautifully soft and still smells gorgeous at the end of the day, and leaves your hands feeling soft too.
          Don't worry if you wouldn't like it because it's too big to carry around as you really don't need to even top up, it can stay on your shelf at home.
          I thought that the writing on the tub could have been printed on or something similar, this is put on with a sticker and looks a bit tacky, and as if it is going to fall off any second. I would also recommend that you wait a few minutes before you put extra clothes on as it can feel a bit odd when it sticks, you have to wait a few minutes for it to sink in, which still isn't long.

          overall a good body lotion which smells beautiful

          I got this product in a set for chirstmas and it was surprisingly good. The product comes in a lrge funky pink tub with screw cap lid. The lotion smells really fruity and fragranced and has a very summery smell to it, which takes me back to when I am on my holidays. The lotion is thick and creamy and goes on realy well as soaks into the skin really quickly without being too greasy. Skin is left feeling really osft and luscious and smells lovely and the smell lasts all day if you put it on after a shower in the morning. Its a good product to use before applying fake tan as it absorbs quickly and mkaes the skin soft which mkaes your fake tan go on better. I also use it as a after sun lotion on holiday and keep it in the fridge so its nice and cold. The only thing I would day about this is that its a bit fiddly, would bebetter in a tub with a pump. As you have to unscrew the lid and dip your hands into it, whcih can be a bit messy. Overall a good body lotion, with a beautiful fragrance and keeps skin soft and supple.
