Summers are going to end soon. Monsoons are soon going to come, but still, I like using body lotions and creams. I got these two tubs from Nature’s Essence, mainly because they claimed to be made up of honey and almonds. These are some of the ingredients that make the skin healthy and glowing. Here’s the review of Nature’s Essence Almonds and Honey All Purpose Cream.
Rs. 55 for 80 g (I got 2 of these).
Almonds and Honey All Purpose Cream. It contains ample doses of almond oil & honey with anti oxidants to nourish and improve complexion and protect from dryness. It delays ageing and imparts a smooth texture to skin.
My Experience with Nature’s Essence Almonds and Honey All Purpose Cream:
This cream comes in a golden tub which has a turn- around cap which is convenient to use. The cream is suitable for all skin types. The cream is pure white in colour. The texture is a bit thick like cold cream. The consistency is such that it’s best suitable for winters since it is thick, but I found it good for summers too. The fragrance is a nice perfumed one and smells amazing. The fragrance is like those typical Lux soaps but decent and pleasing. The fragrance lasts for about 2 hours on the skin and then fades away.
Currently since it is summer, the hands feel a little greasy, but then the cream finally gets absorbed into the skin after 25-30 minutes. I normally use it at night, not everyday, but when I don’t use my daily lotion. The skin feels very hydrated and fresh in the morning. It feels soft and supple. However re-application is needed twice a day to keep the skin hydrated. It is a complete no-no for the face.
It makes the face oily and I already have oily skin. It feels very heavy on the face and if the weather is hot, it starts to melt and causes a lot of sweating. The entire face feels warms and uncomfortable. It contains almond oil, honey, vitamin E which treats the skin every day. I would term it as an average cream but a very good one to treat dry skin. The major con is that it does not contain SPF and I can’t take the risk of going out without sun protection. If you are looking out for a cheap cream for everyday use, then this can be the pick, but rather, I would suggest creams from other brands like Dove, Nivea, Vaseline, and Parachute.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Nature’s Essence Almonds and Honey All Purpose Cream?
No, I already have 2 tubs with me as of now. I would rather go for/recommend some brand like parachute or Vaseline rather than getting or recommending this one.
This is an affordable and moderately effective cream. But for sure, there are better ones in the market, so this should surely be given a skip.
