Hey lovely ladies,
This one is the last of the hand creams that I had picked up in my Marks and Spencer body and bath product haul (a lot of impulse buys here). To be honest, the whole bath and body haul was pretty much an impulse buy! Anyway! Let us get on with it and find out how the product performed.
This carefully formulated pH balanced cream with added panthenol will soften, condition and nourish your hands. Made with integrity. Neither this product nor its ingredients have been tested on animals.

My Experience with Marks and Spencer Floral Collection Honeysuckle Moisturizing Hand and Nail Cream:
My skin type – except for my face, my skin is extremely dry. My once super soft, well-maintained hands have since lost their softness, looking dry and wrinkled. Recently, I have become sensitive to it and am working on changing the scenario. The hand cream comes packaged in a simple plastic tube with a flip top from which the product can be easily dispensed out. The tube allows sufficient control on the amount of product being dispensed. There is no outer cardboard packaging or seal.
It has a light floral fragrance, which is difficult for me to describe. It kind of reminds me of meadows and valleys full of flowers. It is pleasant, non-overpowering and definitely not sweet.
The texture of the hand cream is consistent with the “Nature’s Ingredients” hand creams that I had tried earlier. The hand cream is lightweight and easy to spread. Also, it absorbs quickly and completely into the skin – leaving behind no residue, tackiness or stickiness. This works great for a day-time hand cream because it allows you to resume whatever work you were doing without having to worry about smudges all over you stuff.
With this, my hands feel soft and supple. The fragrance does not last too long on the hands. I think its more of a pleasurable application experience that something which transfers onto the skin and lingers. It is definitely not an intensive hydration cream – like the L’Occitane Shea Butter one. However, it is perfect for daytime ready moisture replenishment of your hands. It will give your hands light moisturization and maintain the hydration level of the skin.
Pros of Marks and Spencer Floral Collection Honeysuckle Moisturizing Hand and Nail Cream:
- Extremely lightweight.
- Absorbs quickly.
- Spreads easily.
- No white cast at all.
- No sign of greasiness or residue left behind.
- Does not stain.
- Has a lovely, soft, floral fragrance.
Cons of Marks and Spencer Floral Collection Honeysuckle Moisturizing Hand and Nail Cream:
- While the flip top tube is easy to use, it is a 100 ml packaging – so, not the most convenient to pop into your bag!
This isn’t really the top of the line super hydrating hand cream. But then, the brand has not made any such claims either. They are good for what you pay for them and convenient for you to use. Also, they make for a nice “no-reason” gift for your mom/sister/friend.
