Hello dear readers!
How was your weekend? At THP, we take our weekends (sometimes, extended) very seriously, and make it a point never to miss a spa appointment! After letting my hair down with a relaxing hair spa, on my way out of Blossom Kochhar, I bought her new hand and foot creams. I am going to review the hand cream today (stay tuned for the foot cream).
Product description: I am 100% free of parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, toxic ingredients, artificial colouring and fragrances. Packed with the goodness of aloe vera gel, organic shea butter and natural beeswax, I sink deep into your skin to soften and moisturise. Extracts of clarysage and wheat along with carrot seed oil, nourish your hands, nails and cuticles by protecting them. The powerful blend of the essential oils of rosehip, geranium and thyme helps in soothing and healing your hands leaving it youthful and radiant.
Price: Rs. 175 for 50 g
Ingredients: Aqua, Cire D’abeille, organic butyrospermuim parkii, aloe barbadensis gel, vegetable glycerine, salvia sclarea extract, triticum vulgare extract, rosa canina essential oil, daucus carota sativa seed oil, pelargonium graveolens essential oil, thymus vulgaris essential oil.
THP’s take on Aroma Magic Nourishing Hand Cream: The hand cream is beautifully packaged in a lemon yellow tube with a white screw top, with floral detailing (this is a huge improvement over Blossom Kochhar’s previous version of the hand cream which came in an almost plain white tube with a red cap. It would have even better if it had a flip top). No doubt, it looks very pretty. It is very convenient to carry in your bag. And, just look at the price! I mean, I haven’t seen anything that affordable in a while😐
The cream itself is dreamy baby pink in color, with soft and creamy texture. It smells of roses, and the fragrance lingers on for a while after application.The cream sinks into the skin quite well. Except on the palms, where it leaves greasiness behind. Now, I cannot afford to grease my own palms (quite, literally!) while I am working on my laptop, so I avoid applying in that area at that time. When I am not working, I apply generously, and work the cream well into my nails and cuticles with a good massage.
Like most other skin care essentials from Kochhar’s stable, this hand cream lives up to its claims. It has all natural ingredients, and it totally softens and moisturizes my hands. And I am so loving it, I keep on keeping on applying the cream every few hours and feeling up my own hands when I have nothing else to do :-p It is always on my desk, and well within arm’s reach
Anybody can use this hand cream – it says clearly it is meant for all skin types. And, I guess it could be used in all seasons as well. Delhi is exploding with humidity and our clothes are sticking to our body like second skin – yeeek! There is a little bit of a drizzle here and there! Formally speaking, yes, the monsson has arrived, with a drizzle here and a drizzle there While we wait for some heavy downpour, I am just going to soak up the goodness of the hand cream ;-)
