Today’s review is about Yves Rocher 2 in 1 Beautifying Hand and Nail Cream. This hand cream contains extracts of arnica. Arnica is a flowering plant from the sunflower family. Arnica plant and its flower extracts are extensively used in homoeopathy. Read on to find out how this cream worked for me.
Price: £6.5 for 75ml (approximately INR 500 for 75ml)
Smoother hands with enhanced radiance
This enhancing care beautifies and protects your hands and nails. It moisturises, smoothes the skin and enhances its natural radiance.
Bonus +: organic Arnica to protect the hands from external aggressions plus rose extract to smooth the skin and enhance its natural radiance.
Secret of the Botanical
ARNICA: to preserve Arnica Montana, an endangered species, Yves Rocher Research has selected Arnica Chamissonis for its ability to shield the skin from external aggressions. Arnica Chamissonis is organically grown at La Gacilly.
My Experience with Yves Rocher 2 In 1 Beautifying Hand and Nail Cream:
The hand cream comes in a cream colored tube with a picture of arnica flowers printed on it. The cap is a flap lid one and it is green in colour. The cap opens and closes easily. It’s very secure and can be carried in a handbag. The plastic tube is also easy to squeeze and one can control the amount of the product getting squeezed out. The hand cream itself is kind of peach in colour and the consistency is creamy. The cream is not very easy to spread on the palms and hands.
I take a small amount and rub it all over my hand but the hand cream does not glide easily like other creams. The texture of the cream is very light. So when you try to spread, it gets stuck on the spot where you apply and spreads just a little around that spot. I do not like this part. It makes me use more cream since not all corners receive the cream. I need to dot the cream in between my fingers and then rub it.
The cream does not feel oily at all. The cream gets absorbed within seconds and leaves no trace of oil or greasiness. This is a great positive. I love hand creams which do not feel oily. The fragrance is not very pleasant; I was expecting a floral scent. It’s hard to explain the fragrance but it’s definitely not for me. I am very picky when it comes to fragrances and I do not like this fragrance for sure. So make sure you smell it before buying.
My hands remain moisturised for some time. I have very dry hands and it’s visible, too, especially in colder months. I need to reapply this hand cream more often than other creams. It’s definitely not for dry palms. One more thing – the product is intended for hands and nails. Since my nails are mostly painted, they never get any benefit from this cream. Overall, I am not really satisfied with this product. I still prefer my Neutrogena hand cream.
Pros of Yves Rocher 2 In 1 Beautifying Hand and Nail Cream:
• Convenient packaging
• Does not feel oily or greasy at all

Cons of Yves Rocher 2 In 1 Beautifying Hand and Nail Cream:
• I do not like this fragrance (personal choice)

• Not for dry palms
• Not moisturising enough
IMBB Rating: 2/5
