Photo Review: Karen’s Body Beautiful Creamylicious

in photo review, product review

I’ve been itching to try something from this line for the longest.  I recently bit the bullet and purchased a few things.  For those who may also be interested in Creamylicious, I think this photo review will be very informative. If you plan on ordering this product during warmer months, please make note:  I happened to purchase both products locally BUT from different vendors.  I would venture to say one location may use express shipping when ordering from KBB and the other may not. Check out the pics below to understand why.

Texture is very unique and similar to marshmallow that comes in the jar at the grocery store. It is very creamy and emits a high glossy sheen. The cream itself is made up of only oils and shea butter so it does not cause shrinkage when used to twist as compared to using a water based twisting cream. See how the cream is made HERE.

This excerpt is found on the Karen’s Body Beautiful website regarding the consistency of Creamylicious:

PLEASE NOTE:  The hair cream may melt in transit during warm months.  You can use it melted or put it in the refrigerator to solidify.  It will not regain its original whipped texture but it will work fine.  The hair cream can not be refunded or exchanged if it melts.  All of our products are made by hand with natural ingredients.  As in nature, there are always slight variations in the way ingredients look and feel.  Saying that, the end result will be the same because when you use the Hair Cream you rub it in your palms and it melts into a creamy oil.

The texture of the re-solidified Creamylicious is more solid like that of a butter. Not creamy in the least. Actually, not very inviting when considering how much I love the original/real texture.  Also notice the product does not loose volume.

In a side by side comparison, can you tell which one is the original texture?

Girl this is the BEST product review on this line that I have seen to date! Thank much for showing the texture and consistency of the product. I wish more reviews were like this. Now I know not to order this product during the warm months. I plan to pick some products up @ the KBB store next time I’m in NYC.
