I don’t have a lot of exclusive creams for hands or toes or legs, I just buy a generic body lotion for all over body usage. Peter Lamas hand lotion is one of the two lotions that I have picked up to moisturize my hands. Read on for more details on this hand cream.
The Spa Sensuals Intensive Repair Hand Cream wraps your skin in nourishing vitamins and extracts to help renew and protect your hands. Shea Butter smoothes rough skin while an enriching mixture of oils – Grape Seed Oil, Almond Oil and Macadamia Oil – provides lasting hydration. Vitamins A, C and E penetrate deep to help heal skin, giving you softer, younger-looking hands.
My Take on Peter Lamas Spa Sensuals Intensive Repair Hand Cream:
I had never used any product from this brand before. Peter Lamas makes a lot of products for hair, skin and body and is apparently more common in salons and spas rather than the usual cosmetic aisles.
Packaging: Long tube packaging, nearly my palm size, with a small nozzle to dispense product and a twist-up cap to protect it. The nozzle has a tiny hole to dispense the product when the tube is squeezed and a generous amount of the cream comes out which can be slathered on the hands.
Texture: Neither very thick or gooey, nor very runny, rather it has an intermediate consistency and spreads easily on the skin. Once applied, it adds more of a slip to the skin rather than moisture which is more of silicon induced rather than because of the presence of oils.
Fragrance: I don’t like the smell of this product. It is way too strong and artificial and gives me a mild headache. It is hard to ignore this smell because the fragrance is long lasting, which can be a pro for those who like the fragrance.
Wear Time: It wears more than most of the hand creams that I have used till now. It makes skin soft but also adds a bit of slip because of the presence of silicon in it; this feature might fare well with some, but to me, it just felt weird. I like my lotions to have a bit of moisture to them with the presence of natural oils. I like the silicone-y feeling in my face primers and hair conditioners, but not from body lotions or hand creams.
This lotion has some really good features – makes my skin soft, is easy to spread, and gets absorbed quickly. It is paraben free too, but is it worth $21? I would have to say no because it has no unique feature except for a silicone-smooth finish and comparatively, Bath and Body Works lotion performs better and is way cheaper than this one.
Pros of Peter Lamas Spa Sensuals Intensive Repair Hand Cream:
- Travel-friendly packaging – tube with a small tip applicator.
- Makes hands instantly soft and supple.
- Wears for more time than most hand creams.
- Gives a smooth feel to hands.
- Easy to spread and gets absorbed easily.
- Paraben free and vegan.
Cons of Peter Lamas Spa Sensuals Intensive Repair Hand Cream:
- Unpleasant fragrance.
- Adds a silicone-y feel to the hands.
- Very expensive for a hand lotion.
- Availability can be an issue for some.
Would I Repurchase Peter Lamas Spa Sensuals Intensive Repair Hand Cream?
No, because there is nothing special about it even though it is so expensive; also I didn’t like the fragrance or feel of this product. I don’t recommend it to the readers.
