This review is about something we all love—hand creams! Yes, I finally bought one. All thanks to Rati and Neetu for those tempting reviews :P, I just couldn’t stop myself from getting a hand cream.
The story of Pomegranate, Argan & Grapeseed:
This regal botanical blend has so very much to feel good about. Let’s start with majestic, ruby red pomegranate seeds, packed with antioxidants and essential fatty acids. Then there’s the nourishing grapeseed oil and scents of pomegranate, citrus and fig leaves that boost your spirits. The crowning ingredient is argan oil, Morocco’s ‘liquid gold’, which is full of vitamin E and nutrients. It’s nothing short of a treasure.

My experience with Crabtree & Evelyn Pomegranate, Argan & Grapeseed Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy:
To begin with, I am not a hand cream person, not even a hand lotion, hand anything person, if you know what I mean! The first reason is I never felt the need for a hand cream and second, I am too lazy to use one. But lately, my hands have become parched, with those dry bumpy patches, also a few spots here and there. I didn’t even notice when these developed! Only when I read hand cream reviews, I started looking at my hands; a cream was evidently needed.
This cream comes in a metal tube, a very vintage-style packaging; reminds me of the good ol’ Boroline. I must say Crabtree&Evelyn people have come out with such cute packaging, if there are 10 different tubes lying in front of you, you’ll surely pick one!
The texture is really smooth. By appearance, it looks really light, almost like a thick lotion. When I first took it out on my hand, I thought I made mistake as I was expecting some thick cream. But as soon as you rub it, it turns into this really thick moisturizing consistency. Only a little is required (the amount in the swatch is way too much!) and it gets absorbed completely. There is no greasiness left, just soft, moisturized hands. I hate the feeling of sweaty hands and leaving oily fingerprints on the book I am reading or if I am working on a computer! So you can start right away with your work. But I can’t say the same about summers.
The best part is one can feel instant smoothness of the hands, noticeably smoooother! There is a tiny amount of shine on the hands, not the oily shine, but the healthy shine (if I am making any sense here :P). I just love how my hands feel after using this.
The fragrance is fruity, not sickly sweet but freshly sweet, kind of yummy (though nothing can beat cocoa butter in yumminess). It is not very strong, but something people notice, which I like. Sorry, I am really bad at describing fragrances.
Overall, I feel using this is the best thing I can do for my hands. It is worth every rupee that you’ve spent!
