Marks and Spencer Fresh Aloe Vera Moisturizing Hand and Nail Cream

Hello Beautiful Ladies,

Taking a break from my lipstick review session, (I know some people always want lipstick reviews, read Neha :P), I will be reviewing a hand and nail cream from Marks and Spencer in Fresh Aloe Vera. My hands are super dry; you can almost compare my hands with Sahara desert. I hoard on hand creams and always look for non-sticky options. I picked this hand cream solely for the lovely smell. Read on to know how well it fared as a hand cream.

Marks and Spencer Fresh Aloe Vera Moisturizing Hand and Nail Cream

Massage into hands, paying particular attention to nails and cuticles.

Tip:

Not recommended for facial use.

Packaging:

Aloe Vera Cream 1

My Experience with Marks and Spencer Fresh Aloe Vera Moisturizing Hand and Nail Cream:

Aloe Vera Cream 4

I primarily bought this cream for the lovely smell. The fresh aloe vera smell is awesome and lingers for quite some time. The cream feels slightly sticky on application, but vanishes after some time. You are left with soft, smooth, heavenly-smelling hands. This tube stays in my bag especially in winters. Result-wise, the hand get soft, but the effect is not long lasting. Also, it does nothing to the cuticles. So, for me this is an average hand cream, not too good, not too bad.

Swatch:

Pros of Marks and Spencer Fresh Aloe Vera Moisturizing Hand and Nail Cream:

  • Pretty moisturizing.
  • Against animal testing.
  • Superb fragrance.
  • Need only a small amount, so a little goes a long way.

Cons of Marks and Spencer Fresh Aloe Vera Moisturizing Hand and Nail Cream:

  • Pricey considering the amount of product you get.
  • Contains parabens.
  • Slightly sticky on application.

IMBB Rating:

3/5 (1 point deducted for containing parabens, 1 point for being slightly sticky).

Will I Repurchase Marks and Spencer Fresh Aloe Vera Moisturizing Hand and Nail Cream?

Probably no, because I want to try the almond variant from The Body Shop.

Marks and Spencer normally has above average creams / lotion / butters. I really like their skin care products, especially the royal jelly range :)
Thanks for the review, Rashmita :)

I have used this one, in the older packaging. I *love* the fragrance, but that one wasn’t sticky at all! But then it wasn’t good enough for my super surgical handwash dried hands….
