This is my 1st post on IMBB and I’ll be reviewing my current favorite ( my maid is on leave for some odd 10 days) Wild Ferns Manuka Honey Conditioning Hand Crème . My husband got me this baby (and a shower gel…review coming soon) last December from New Zealand but didn’t use it much until last week. Manuka honey is known to have antibacterial antioxidant properties. it is also known to be beneficial for preventing and treating cancer, high cholesterol, inflammation, diabetes, eye ear & sinus infections, gastrointestinal problems. But evidence is limited on whether manuka honey is effective on these conditions. Read on further to know how it worked on my work laden hands.

My experience with Wild Ferns Manuka Honey Conditioning Hand Crème :
This crème comes in sturdy yellow (read cute yellow) tub and it smells awesome!!!!! the smell stays till 4-5 hrs. I just love it. I keep smelling my hands all the time. A little quantity of this cute lemon yellow crème is sufficient to moisturize both the hands and retain their softness. It takes 30 secs or so for the skin to absorb it but after that it’s not at all greasy. Trust me, after a hard working day of doing the dishes and mopping etc my hands become very dry and rough but just a little massage with this and am sorted. The company doesn’t claim this but I feel it’s working as a nail and cuticle cream as well. My nails are looking fine and my cuticles have not dried which usually doesn’t happen under similar circumstances. Lastly, it can also be used on other parts of the body. I used it on my feet and it worked well.
Pros of Wild Ferns Manuka Honey Conditioning Hand Crème :
1. Sturdy packaging, travel friendly.
2. Lasting beautiful smell.
3. Lasting baby soft hands.
4. Works well for nails and cuticles.
5. Little quantity is required.
6. Paraben free.
7. Not tested on animals.
Cons of Wild Ferns Manuka Honey Conditioning Hand Crème :
1. Price might be an issue for some.
3. Ek baar agar koi aapka haath pakad lega toh phir chodega nahi…hehe.
