Hand Creams are an integral part of my daily routine. Dry hands dread me! The presence of a good hand cream in my bag gives me an immense sense of solace. The addition to my hand cream family is the “Innisfree Jeju rose hand cream”.
I really like rose fragrance and always look forward to try out rose scented products. Innisfree hand creams come in a variety of fragrances, you can surely find your favorite in the range.
Innisfree is a Korean brand. It claims to be a natural brand that shares the benefits of nature from the pristine island of Jeju allowing for vibrant beauty and pursues an eco-friendly green life to preserve the balance of nature.
Here is the review for you all.
The packaging structure is quite similar to the Body Shop Hand Cream (reviewed here) tube. Very convenient for use and travel friendly. The easily squeezable tube ensures good control over the product quantity. The screw cap ensures NO accidental spillage in your hand bag!
Consistency and Texture
The cream consistency is slightly on the thicker side (unlike the body shop hand cream which is quite gel like, watery and of a lesser density).
The thick creamy consistency doesn’t feel sticky or heavy on application neither light or feathery. It’s non sticky, non greasy texture gives just the required amount of moisturisation which lasts for about 5-6 hours.
One big drawback I faced was, if you rub it on your hands continuously for a minute, you will notice dry powdery substance shedding off.. It’s like as if your hands are raining dandruff 🙁 And that happens every time!
The best part of the product! the reason why I actually bought it, was this beautiful rose fragrance. The scent isn’t too deep and intense, rather it’s more on the softer side and lingers on for a good amount of time.
I bought this from the Innsifree outlet in DLF Mall of India, Noida
Umm.. I guess 3.5/5 should be apt.
Why it couldn’t make 5/5?
1. Rs. 300/- for 30mL product is expensive.
2. The cream on application, does provide adequate moisturisation but it doesn’t aid in making the hands feel softer (body shop hand cream performs better in this case).
3. The white-powdery stuff that starts to shed off if you rub it on your hands continuously for a while is REALLY annoying.
