To keep our hands looking and feeling youthful, a hand cream is a must. I realized it very lately, but from that moment, I am religiously using hand creams. Considering the upcoming summer where floral fragrances are a popular option, I picked this Boots Ingredients Waterdrop Hand Cream in “Cherry Blossom.” I got it from Boots in Bangkok, and I have been using this cream for the past one month.
105 Thai bhat (INR 200) for 100 ml.
With extracts of cherry blossom, Boots Ingredients Waterdrop Hand Cream is specifically formulated to help moisturize and soften the skin. Massage thoroughly into your hands and nails whenever they feel dry.
My Experience with Boots Ingredients Cherry Blossom Waterdrop Hand Cream:
Packaging: It comes in an opaque white packaging with a flip-top cap. The cap shuts tightly, making the product leak-proof. It carries a beautiful picture of cherry blossom flowers, which is the main ingredient. All other information, including the ingredients list, is mentioned at the back of the tube. The packaging is sturdy, is easy to carry, and contains 100 ml of product. This opaque packaging makes it hard to find out how much of it has been used up.
Texture: The texture of this cream is like a gel and extremely lightweight. It is in a beautiful light pink color as that of the actual cherry blossom flowers and also smells amazing. It is a water-based cream. The consistency is just apt for a hand cream, neither runny nor too thick. It gets absorbed within seconds and does not leave a greasy residue. With extracts of cherry blossom, it is specially formulated to moisturize the skin.
Performance: I am so impressed by the formula of this hand cream. As the name suggests, it feels like a water droplet as it is water based. When applied, it absorbs quite quickly. It did not leave my hands sticky at all. As the formula is light, it needs a little extra quantity to give the desired moisturization compared to other hand creams. The fragrance of this hand cream is on the pleasant side and is not overpowering.
The scent actually has some good staying power as well, and one would definitely love to sniff their hands again and again. I find the floral scent so refreshing for this summer season. This hand cream is truly moisturizing. It soothes and softens my hands. This cream is extremely light and gel-like.
On my moderately dry hands, I find this cream quite moisturizing enough with staying power of 4–5 hours. Perhaps, the staying power will be less for extremely dry or chapped hands. Its non-greasy, non-waxy, and non-sweaty feeling after the application makes it perfect even for humid and warm seasons. Overall, it could be my favorite in the budget hand cream market.

Cons of Boots Ingredients Cherry Blossom Waterdrop Hand Cream:

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Boots Ingredients Cherry Blossom Waterdrop Hand Cream?
This affordable cream is definitely a recommendation from me. Having experienced the benefits of a hand cream, I want to try other options/brands available in the market, so I may not repurchase this one.
