To be honest, I have not used a separate hand cream ever. I wanted to try one and got fascinated by this one because of the combination of its main ingredients. Being a sweet addict, I just love the smell of coconut. The thought of “how wonderful it will be if this smell lingers on my hands” pushed me to pick it immediately. I got it from Boots in Bangkok, and I have been using this cream for the past one month.

With extracts of coconut and almond, Boots Ingredients Hand and Nail 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 Coconut and Almond Hand and Nail 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 coconut and almonds, which are the main ingredients. 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 the product is still remaining.
Texture: The texture of this cream is quite fluffy and lightweight. It is white in color and smells amazing. The consistency is just apt for a cream, neither runny nor too thick. It gets absorbed within seconds and does not leave a greasy residue. The combination of coconut and almond extracts is specially formulated to moisturize the skin. Coconut oil is used as a natural moisturizer to leave the skin feeling smooth and soft.
Performance: Although I got this hand and nail cream because I saw the word “coconut.” I got even more excited when I tried it because the formula was really good too. This cream feels light when applied and absorbs quite quickly. It did not leave my hands sticky at all. 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 smell to be warm and ideal for this summer season. This hand cream is truly moisturizing. It soothes and softens my hands. There was certainly an improvement in the area around my nails. This cream is extremely light and soft.
On my moderately dry hands, I find this cream quite moisturizing enough with a staying power of 5–6 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, I find this cream awfully nice!

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Boots Ingredients Coconut and Almond Hand and Nail Cream?
This affordable cream is definitely a recommendation from me and if you love coconut as much as I do, make sure to try it out. 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.
