This was my wedding anniversary month, (Feb I mean) so I did not spare a single chance to shop where I could, I love M&S body stuff, and body butters and hand creams are something you can use and finish happily. Whenever I go to this store, I simply cannot resist picking up their perfumes and EDTs and some body and hand stuff, this time I saw a lot of new launches, strawberry ones, and some night creams, and some new edts, I bought them all, also got 10% off for anniversary, so anyway, this is my first pick, a balm for hardworking hands like mine 😛

Needless to say I got this one for the tin vintage floral packaging, I knew it does not smell to my liking it is a heavy creamy floral and grassy kind of smell, me no likey much, but the tin tub is something I had to buy it for, hand creams and balms is something i would use anyway, so I have no regrets.I also combats any cooking aromas your hands might have.

Like you can see the pack is vintage, I love the floral design, and the name too, this is a balm, this is more heavy duty than a hand cream and it is , you need very less may be half or lesser than a hand cream’s amount, apply and massage on rough spots and cuticles and the remaining grease is enough for you hands.I did the mistake of applying too much, and it appears greasy, but this one has to be applied lightly and with care.

I would say it is on the greasy side, so humid climates would not do justice to this one, use it like a night hand balm, and use very less, it is not oily but yes it has a heavy texture. I dont have rough or dry or pigmented hands, so I cannot say how well it would be for very dry hands, my hands look fine, they dont look aging so I enjoy using this as a maintenance cream. I believe dry hands will love it too. The effect stays even after you wash hands, it keeps hands soft and nourished, but I recommend using it at night.Buy it if you are into heavy floral herbal smells and heavy hand creams.You will love it.
and my haul
