Not that it is a measure in it self, but I can't even Google La Maxima.

Australia, nothing related came up in the first two pages. That kind of sets the brand value...

I remember getting Clarins, thet have very nice products indeed. Much better than L'Occitane in my view, but that can be personal preference.

I got Clarins body lotion and lip balm the other day. The lip balm is fine, but the body lotion is like glue, I chucked it out after the first use.

Wonder if it was old? I have never had that. Clarins is one of the higher profile skin care brands in the world

Thanks for sharing this.

Many hours after I had applied it, it still had not been absorbed by my skin at all. Could be just me, though.

Doubt it’s you, more likely old & left somewhere for a long time in Bangkok’s searing heat, enough to challenge even the best product.

Well, that’s certainly also a possibility.

It looked and felt like the white glue for wood.

Definitely an oddity. I still have a few in my desk for when my hands get dry during the wintertime (Australia).
