I had almost run out of my Le Couvent Hand Cream as I had to reapply it so often (the adorable rose fragrance is to be blamed too :P). So, one of co-workers was gracious enough to share her hand cream in my predicament (dealing with super dry hands is no fun people :P) And voila…I was pleasantly surprised with Earth Science Naturals Purfection Hand Cream. I had to go and get my own hand cream that very day. After going through hordes of hand creams, I can finally say I am adoring this hand cream!!
The hand cream has a very minimalistic packaging. It comes in an off-white plastic tube with a flip top cap. The cream is white in color, which is super thick in texture. It has a very mild citrusy fragrance, which fades away very soon. I find it to be very travel friendly tube.
4 oz.(118 ml) tube is priced at $12.95
My Experience with Earth Science Purfection Hand Cream:
The hand cream has a very thick creamy consistency. As I have very dry skin, I initially took a big blob of the hand cream for application. I was of the view that ultimately my dry skin would absorb it entirely. It takes an effort to blend the hand cream when I took a large pea-sized amount. However, when I take a very tiny amount, it is comparatively very easy to blend the cream.
Once the hand cream gets absorbed, it forms a mild layer on my skin. As I have very dry skin, I like the kind of moisturization it offers. I did not find it greasy at all. My hand just felt very well nourished. Also, unlike other hand creams, I do not have to re-apply it frequently. The presence of Aloe vera with Shea butter and jojoba oil provided very good moisturization for my skin.
I did not find the hand cream leaving any oily impression on papers or on keyboards. So, it is very helpful for office use as well as at home. I found the hand cream to be true to its claim of providing solution to dry and chapped hands. I no longer have to keep worrying about my hands getting super dry. The hand cream is pH balanced at pH 5.5 which would be helpful for sensitive skin.
It has a very mild citrusy fragrance, which hardly stays after a few minutes. The fragrance is extremely mild and pleasant. The hand cream also does not contain any parabens, which is another plus point for this hand cream. The hand cream contains vitamin C and E to provide nourishment. I did notice that when I am using the hand cream, my hands felt smoother and more hydrated.
I have used it on my feet, knees and elbows too. The hand cream has been really effective in combating the dryness. It is going to very beneficial for me in all seasons and especially during the dry winters.
