Hand Type: Dry and Rough
Winter is knocking at the door and my super rough hands need a good hand cream to fight against this dry season. I recently bought a few products from The Face Shop and I totally love their products. The Face Shop offers so many good hand creams, and today I am talking about their Orchid Daily Perfumed Hand Cream. Let’s get into the review.
Price: INR 300 for 30 ml
Highly moisturizing daily perfume hand cream that you can choose according to your preference. Contains 10% shea butter that softly moisturizes dry hands.
⦁ Contains orchid extract with powerful anti-oxidant effect and moisture-holding ability
⦁ Shea butter soothes dry and rough skin
My Experience with The Face Shop Orchid Daily Perfumed Hand Cream:
The Face Shop hand cream comes in a very cute, small and light pastel green plastic tube with a brown cap. There are some fresh-looking orchid flowers printed on the tube. This tube is so small and pretty that it is super easy to carry in my handbag. I always need to carry a hand cream so this one is perfect for me. Also, the dispenser provides the right amount of the product at once. I really like this tube packaging. It contains only 30 ml cream which might look a little pricey to some; but this cream will appear affordable if you compare it to creams from other brands like The Body Shop.
They offer many variants. This orchid hand cream has a super fresh but mild scent of limes with a touch of floral. I’ve never smelt orchids but it seems to be a light scent. I really like this fresh lime and floral scent and it never feels overpowering. Also, it fades away after a few hours, so it never bothers. It is good enough for those who do not prefer strong fragrances. This scent, I feel, will be liked by everyone.
The hand cream has a medium thick creamy texture and it is pure white in color. The cream blends smoothly on the hands and gets absorbed quickly, like within a few minutes. Hence, it never feels slippery or greasy on my palm. There is no stickiness, so I can work normally after applying this cream. It feels very fresh and smooth on the hands and it instantly changes the rough texture of my skin. This cream provides good moisturization to my dry hands and makes them smoother.
During this dry season my palms turn super dry and rough; my hands even look white and sometimes the skin starts to flake. But this hand cream keeps my skin smooth and soft throughout the day and my hands do not look rough at all. There is no flaking either, so I really love the way this cream keeps my hand hydrated. Even though this isn’t a rich cream, it keeps my hands soft and smooth. I do not think many people like super thick and rich hand creams, hence this one will be liked by everyone.
It also never makes my palms sweaty. I don’t have sweaty palms but I don’t think it will induce sweat because the formula is quite lightweight. The formula has the perfect amount of moisture for all skin types. This formula, in fact, will work perfectly during summer too. It really feels nice on the hands. It reduces the dry, rough texture of the skin and hides dry patches too.
The softness stays for around 5-6 hours with normal work. My hands do not turn dry during this time period. Also, this softness does not go away if you wash my hands with water. But I need to reapply this cream if I wash my hands with a soap. I, anyway, need to apply this cream after every 5-6 hours but I do not mind. Overall, I really like this cute hand cream. It works well to keep my hands soft and moisturised. It also smells so fresh.
