Desert Summer Body Cream

    Introduction

    This cream is thick and heavy, so it will take some time to massage into the skin. I like to apply creams like this one after I get out of the shower. Once it has been applied, your skin will feel soft and moisturized all day long Great for the desert where we feel like our skin dries out fast!
