Hello Lovely Ladies. How are the Diwali preparations going, they must be going on in full swing I suppose. Today I will be reviewing a hand cream. Hand cream is a must for people with dry hands, in summers I use it only during night, but in winters I use it even in daytime, though my hands are not that dry. Freeman is a good brand and I really like their face masks, so when I spotted this I immediately laid my hands on this one as it makes some good claims. Let’s find out if the claims are really true.

My Experience with Freeman Bare Hands Brightening Hand Renewal Balm
It comes in a white tube the top of which is cut in toe shaped. The tube is very travel friendly and medium sized, one can easily carry it around. The quantity provided is good; I have been using it for around 2 months and am about to finish. The balm inside is white and thick in consistency, only a small coin sized amount is needed for both hands. The fragrance is really pleasant it is very fresh and a bit fruity and lingers around for 10 minutes, after which it fades.
The balm is thick and spreads easily and immediately moisturizes hands. It gets absorbed pretty easily within 2 minutes. My hands are normal and do not have dry skin, it moisturizes it for 3-4 hours after which I have to reapply. It will not suffice the needs of dry skin. And also this is a good hand cream for summers, but I need something a bit more moisturizing during the night time and during winters. But I really like how it gets absorbed easily and makes my hands soft almost instantly and is not at all greasy as well.
The claims are definitely over hyped, as it is not hydrating enough for dry chapped hands as said. It also contains white tea leaf and licorice extracts for brightening purpose, it does make my hands look more hydrated and soft but nothing special. In all it is a good hand cream and I will purchase it again for summers, but for winters my search is still on.
