I have dry skin overall and suck up on anything moisturizing. While I do enjoy moisturized hands, I usually skip hand cream mostly because I don’t like that slippery, greasy feeling on my hands. Recently, I gave this hand cream from Ahava a try despise my aversion to hand creams in general. This review will be on the Ahava Mineral Hand Cream.
It instantly soothes chapped, dry skin and restores moisture to optimal levels for soft, smooth hands you can see. Aloe Vera extract soothes and provide natural moisture. Witch Hazel extracts smoothes skin, providing refreshing, revitalizing effect. Allantoin heals dry cracked skin and blemishes.
My Experience with Ahava Dead Sea Water Mineral Hand Cream:
Packaging: This hand cream comes in a standard tube with a screw on cap. I would have preferred a flip top cap mostly because I being a clumsy person tend to drop the cap and then have to struggle to find it.
Texture/Consistency/Performance: This hand cream has a very luxurious silky texture. It is not not too thick and spread easily. It instantly moisturizes dry and chapped skin and gives it a natural healthy sheen. It almost make your skin of your hand feel silicone-y smooth and does take a minute to absorb but does not absorb completely. There is still some creamy silky feeling on your hands but it does not affect your grip. I don’t love this feeling but for moisturized smooth hands I am willing to live with it.
Fragrance: This hand cream smells amazing. I cannot stop whiffing it every couple of minutes when I apply this. The fragrance is one of the reason why I will put up with the slight greasy feeling on my hands this cream gives. It smells so fresh- like the ocean breeze.
Overall, I like this hand cream mostly for the fragrance. It is indeed very moisturizing and has improved my state of dry hand tremendously. I would mostly prefer using this at nighttime because I am not a fan of the greasy slippery feeling on my hands. It is quite expensive for a hand cream. I will probably not repurchase this but will give another product a try to find that perfect one for me.
