My hands tend to get dry even during warm seasons. I often apply hand cream to keep them moisturized throughout the day and night as well. On the recent visit to The Face Shop store, I saw this huge cream-coloured bottle kept on the shelf, which read Soft Touch Hand Lotion. It is a moisturizer which intensely moisturizes and delivers softness to dry and rough hands. I saw my hands, and without giving it a second thought, I picked it up instantly. Read on to know more.

My Experience with The Face Shop Rich Hand V Soft Touch Hand Lotion:
Packaging: The hand lotion comes in a nice pump packaging, and thus, it is very hygienic to use. It’s a cream colored opaque plastic bottle, which is quite huge and you cannot see how much product is left inside. The pump works smoothly with a lock mechanism and dispenses the right amount of product. Although the bottle is huge, I’ve traveled with it, and there was absolutely no leakage. It’s quite secure to carry and hygienic to use as well.
I have been using this hand lotion for almost a month now, during day and night both. It is a moisturizing lotion that intensely moisturizes and delivers softness to dry and rough hands. Its consistency is semi thick but it spreads very easily and gets absorbed instantly, leaving your hands all smooth, hydrated and soft, that too without being oily or greasy.
It keeps the hands well moisturized for good 6-7 hours without making you realize that something has been applied on your hands. It heals your damaged skin from within, making it look youthful and well moisturized. You just require a drop of the lotion for both the hands. The bottle is quite huge and will last easily for 3-4 months for me. The fragrance is quite mild and pleasant, but it doesn’t last long. The fragrance is not at all overpowering and perfect for sensitive noses. Overall, I am loving this hand lotion ever since I have started using it.

Would I Recommend The Face Shop Rich Hand V Soft Touch Hand Lotion?
Overall, it’s a very smooth and light hand lotion that moisturizes and makes my hands feel smooth and soft. It absorbs quickly into the skin and is absolutely non-greasy. No sticky feeling either. It has a pleasant scent that’s light and fades away, so it’s good if you don’t like strong scents. I definitely recommend it.
