When we meet and greet someone, we usually say hello by waving or shaking hands. Hence there is high chance that your hands not go unnoticed. Taking care of them should be in the list for this prime reason.
Hand cream is something my handbag essentials for a very long time. All thanks to my dry hands. Huuh.
A month ago I bought these hand creams from Nykaa. Nykaa has come up with their own line of cosmetics and skin care. There are seven different varients in this range. Out of which I chose two of my favorites.
Let’s see how it worked or not worked for me.
PS: this post is not sponsered by Nykaa.
Flavors I chose:
- Peony & White Lily
- Freesia & Vanilla
What company claims:
Peony & White Lily
Flirtatious Peonies mingle with the regal White Lilies to give sweep you to a mystical dreamland with its exquisite fragrance. Peony brings dollops of freshness, while noble White Lilies leave your hands wrapped in sweet, romantic scent.
Freesia & Vanilla
Dive into the sensuous, gourmet scent of intense vanilla wrapped in a fresh bouquet of hand-plucked Freesia. The free-spirited freshness of Freesia is mellowed down with the ever-so-sweet Vanilla, offering you a blend that give your hands a warm, fresh hug.
These are quite tiny tubes. Plus, the lid is quite tight. So no worries about need for large space in your handbag or any spillage.
Each flavor has different outer packing or this tube. In one word, it’s girly. Each varient can be differentiated by it’s cool floral prints on the tube.
As you can see, the Freesia has this yellow floral print and peony has this beautiful red floral print.
275 INR each for 30 ml.
Once opened, best before:
As and when you open this tubes of nail and hand cream, one thing you just can’t ignore is their amazing fragrance. Trust me it’s so yummy that you feel like eating it. But yes they are not edible so you have to drop that idea, for good.
At first, it might seem over empowering. But the fragrance faints as soon as you wipe it against your hands.
Peony & White Lily smells like a mild flower. Very soothing one.
Freesia & Vanilla is my personal favorite. It smells exactly like one of the Victoria secret mists. A very sweet coconut fragrance with a hint of Vanilla. Smells delicious.
Off-white cream, neither runny nor sticky. Non greasy and non oily.
Main business. Is it serving it’s major purpose? The Freesia and vanilla has such a beautiful aroma that my baby sister also bought it. My hands are way more dry than hers.
It didn’t really work for my extremely dry hands. I could still feel the need of hydration even after applying these creams.
But it did work for my sister. She has normal to dry hands. She could feel her hands more soft than before.
Things I loved:
- Cruelty free.
- Paraben free.
- Easily available online.
- Fragrance is amazing.
- Travel friendly.
- Attractive packing.
- Tube packing is hygienic as compared to tub one.
- Works for normal to dry hands.
Things Which can be Improved:
- I find it slightly more pricier. Because I know some hand creams which we get more quantity for almost same amount. Plus, which works well on dry hands.
- Fragrance fades as we apply the cream. I find it a con because the fragrance is good and I was expecting it to last a bit longer.
- Didn’t work on extremely dry hands.
- Girls with sensitive nose might find the fragrance over empowering.
Will I repurchase?
No. I didn’t find it worth the price as it didn’t work on my hands.
Will I recommend?
If you have normal to dry hands and love amazing fragrance, you can give a try.
