I can’t explain how much I love summer and beaches. I don’t care about skin tanning and dry hair when I am at a beach. And, when I looked at this hand lotion, the coconut and lime combo immediately reminded me of…yes, you guessed it right, beaches! 😀
This nourishing Hand Lotion hydrates and soothes hands and nails. It will leave your skin deliciously scented with a refreshingly zesty citrus fragrance, with notes of zingy lime, orange peel and creamy coconut.
How to Use:
Massage into hands after cleansing for deliciously scented, smooth skin.
My Experience with Grace Cole Fruit Sensation Coconut and Lime Hand Rescue Kit:
There are two products in this kit – hand lotion and nail filer. Both the products come in a transparent plastic packaging. The accents are green and there are pictures of delectable coconut and lime printed over it. The lotion comes in a tube form which makes it hygienic and easy to use. Also, it can be easily tossed into a handbag. The nail filer too is beautiful. It is thick and juicy fruits printed over it (I just love fruits). The tube came with a foil seal to avoid tampering.
I love everything coconut – coconut oil, water, burfis. I was expecting it to smell amazing, just like coconuts and lime. And, it does. But, with some twists. The fragrance is very mild and does not stay for long. So, it could be a good thing for people who don’t like strong fragrances.
The lotion is white in color, but has the consistency of a lightweight hand cream. Just a little amount gets spread and absorbed very easily, in less than a minute. The nozzle is good sized and you can control the amount of product. Since it’s a lotion, it is a little bit runny, but that cannot be considered a negative point.
Now, coming to point here! The nail filer works well, just like any nail filer would. The only thing which makes it stand out is the fact that it looks good. I have not got anything else to say about it. The first time I applied the lotion, everything felt good. It smelled good and got absorbed so well. It didn’t even made my hands feel greasy. But, my happiness was short lived! 🙁
After a few minutes, my hands started to sweat. Now, my hands never sweat. Not even when I perform HIIT exercises at the gym. This was strange. Soon after this, to my utter shock, my palms became squeaky! Since, it was the first time I had used the lotion, I ignored it and kept using it. Now, it’s been so many days and I still see the same results. First it makes my hands sweat, then my palms turn squeaky.
I noticed one thing about this kit. Unlike other Grace Cole ranges, this Fruit Works range is Made in China, and not England. Also, it has parabens. So, I am not at all happy with this hand lotion. It’s most basic purpose is to moisturise and it can’t do even that properly. The only consolation here is the nail filer, but then why would I shell out so much money for a filer. I mean, I don’t even keep my nails long most of the time.
Pros of Grace Cole Fruit Sensation Coconut and Lime Hand Rescue Kit:
• Smells of fresh coconut and lime
• Cute packaging
• Travel friendly
• Nail filer looks beautiful and is useful too
Cons of Grace Cole Fruit Sensation Coconut and Lime Hand Rescue Kit:
• Does nothing to nourish or revive hands, as claimed
• Makes hands sweaty
• Makes palms squeaky
• Fragrance does not stay for even ten minutes
• No offence, but it’s Made in China. I wanted it to be made in England. 😛
• Over priced!
Would I Repurchase Grace Cole Fruit Sensation Coconut and Lime Hand Rescue Kit?
I know you all know the answer to this. I am never going to buy this. I would rather live without any hand moisturiser than using this. Also, I won’t buy any product by Grace Cole, if it’s made in China.
Would I Recommend Grace Cole Fruit Sensation Coconut and Lime Hand Rescue Kit?
No dearies. I am not a cruel person. So many hand creams and lotions are available in the market, you don’t have to torture your hands with this one.
