Joy Honey and Almonds Nourishing Cream Review

Hi Everyone :pompom:

Today, I am going to review JOY Honey and Almonds Nourishing Cream, my mother picked it up randomly. My mother has a habit of picking up things and not using them and this cream was no exception. It was the first time I heard of this brand. Nevertheless, seeing it lying all unused, I started using it. It has been two weeks already and I have formed an opinion about this cream. Please read on to find out how it fares on my expectations.

Product Being Reviewed:
Joy Honey and Almonds Nourishing Cream.

Joy Honey Almonds Nourishing Cream

Price/ Packaging/ Quantity:

INR 35 for 50 ml. It comes in a bright orange coloured tub packaging with a sticker on top which has almonds on it. I am not very impressed with the packaging as it seems flimsy to me.

What’s Written on the Tub?

Contains generous doses of Almond Oil and Honey along with Vitamin E & Sunscreen to nourish your complexion and protect your skin from winter dryness and wrinkles.

Directions:
Apply daily all over the face and body.

Key Ingredients:
Wheat Germ Oil, Almond Oil and Honey.

My Take on Joy Honey and Almonds Nourishing Cream:

The first impression after seeing this cream was annoyance because I already have so many body lotions and creams to finish and I knew my mom would not be using it, so it would just go waste. I read the ingredients on it and instantly my annoyance was gone because it claimed to contain almond oil, honey and vitamin E , hich are excellent for skin. So, I opened up the cap and took a generous amount on my hands. It’s a white coloured cream with the right consistency which a cream should have. Although, I liked the fragrance, but the cream as such was too greasy. I rubbed it on my hands and it just refused to get absorbed, my hands felt greasy for an hour or so after which I had to finally wash it off. I didn’t have the courage to apply it on my face as it was too greasy and as such I have oily skin, so it would have made the matter worse.

It’s still lying unused in my cupboard, once in a while, I do apply it during night and wake up with softer hands. I guess this cream needs it’s time to work on the skin, but during the day, I can’t conjure the strength to make my hands or body greasy, so I skip it during the day time.

Pros of Joy Honey and Almonds Nourishing Cream:

1.  Reasonably priced.
2.  Herbal ingredients like almond oil,honey and vitamin E.
3.  Makes the hands softer if the cream is left on for 6-8 hours.
4.  Fragrance is nice though not mild.

Cons of Joy Honey and Almonds Nourishing Cream:

1.  Complete list of ingredients not mentioned.
2.  The cream does not get absorbed in the skin.
3.  Makes the skin greasy.
4.  Tub packaging is very unhygienic.

Will I Repurchase?
No, never. I am happy with my Bath and body Works Twilight wood cream.

hello Shivani, :handshake: creams which claims to have honey, almonds, shea butter, etc… can only be used in winter and that to start with less quantity which u normally use as they are super oily and tend to work better with less quantity…hope u will be able to use it in winters :chewnails :chewnails :chewnails :chewnails :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

I tried this cream recently & i agree with u. It is greasy. I took very little amt & after applying, I massaged it for a while, so d greasiness went off & left a little shine to my skin, which I liked.

But over a wk I didnt feel any betterment in my skin . In fact, as long as I applied it, I felt my skin looking a shade darker, as with all cold creams. Also, in a wk, it gave me small bumps & little acnes.

Though it feels very smooth on application & makes skin soft, but now I m only using it as a hand cream. :)
