These days my hands were becoming very dry and scaly. I had never tried a hand cream before, so thought of buying a hand cream and using the same and check if it helps or not. And Nykaa had newly launched their hand cream, so went ahead and got Freesia and Vanilla Variant. There are a total of 7 variants.
- Peony and white lily
- Jasmine and Neroli
- Honeysuckle and White Tea
- Magnolia and White Tea
- Rose and White Musk
- French Lavender and Honey
- And of course the one which I got, Freesia and Vanilla
It comes in a tube packaging with a black screw-unscrew black coloured cap. It has a silver coloured tube packaging as shown in the image, and based on the variant you choose it has different coloured floral patterns and shapes on it. It does not comes with a carton box or anything, Just a normal tube packaging with the ingredient list, price etc mentioned at the rear of the pack. It says you can use it for 24 months after opening. The cream claims to be animal cruelty free.
It cost Rs. 275 for 30 ml of product.
As seen in the above image it consists of a complicated set of ingredients, that is chemicals etc. But the product claims to be Paraben free and SLS free, which is a great thing. Along with the complex ingredient list there are also some essential oils in it like Avocado oil, Wheatgerm oil, Almond oil, Argan oil, Jojoba Oil, Rice bran oil and Olive oil.
Rice bran oil and Avocado oil both are used for moisturising the skin,they are also said to have Vitamin E which is essential for skin health.
Wheatgerm oil consists of antioxidants and has got anti-ageing properties.
Argan oil is said to offer a large number of benefits to the skin, it is a good moisturising agent, protects skin from sun damage, it also has anti-ageing properties. It is also used to treat many skin conditions hence Argan oil is mostly trending these day in many cosmetic products.
Fragrance, Texture and consistency:
It is mentioned that the fragrance is of freesia flower, I have not smelled the flower, so basically it smells like Vanilla. It smells yummy 😛
The hand cream has got a light weight texture, it does not become sticky, as it is easily absorbed by the skin.
What is my opinion about the Nykaa Freesia and Vanilla Hand & Nail Creme?
As mentioned earlier, this is my first hand and nail cream, I have not used any such products earlier, as I never felt the need for the same. So I will not be able to compare and tell which is a better product, I will give my honest review about this hand cream.
This is a nice and pleasant smelling hand creme, feel like eating the same :P, but its not edible. Jokes apart, the creme is easily absorbed in the skin. To sum up
- The fragrance is nice and pleasant
- Non sticky formulation
- Easily absorbed by the skin
- Can see visible differences in few uses.
- Keeps your hands hydrated for the entire day
- Free from SLS and paraben.
- Total of 7 variants to choose from
- Pea size amount is what you need for soft and supple hands
- None for me, cannot comment on the other variants, the fragrance might be annoying to some.
Totally recommend this product. It is a great hand cream, not very expensive not very cheap, not pricey for the quantity. And little quantity is required so the tube is going to last for pretty long time.
