Absolutely one of the best hand and nail creams on the market today. I've tried so many that I was thrilled to have found this product. I get weekly manicures which has made my nails very dry, to the point where my manicurist told me not to put polish on for about a month. I purchased this cream and used it over the course of that month, and my nails have never looked better or stronger. The moisture is perfect for daytime, as it absorbs quickly yet leaves hand soft and smooth. I love that it comes in a travel size, which I always keep in my handbag. I also have the large size for home use. I can't live without this cream and am thrilled that Clarins did it again. Note that I wear Clarins SPF 40, which doesn't contain anything else but the SPF, over the product when I go outside. Clarins also sells the hand lotion with SPF 15, but I'm fair and need more SPF than that.
I bought a 4 pack of this from the duty free in London's Heathrow before a transatlantic flight. The luxury of something nice-smelling and moisturising on a plane!
The texture is rich and the immediate delicate orange scent hits you straight out of the tube. Rich enough to keep the cuticles of a prolific hand-washer happy - this is a big deal for me.
My only scruples come with effectively getting out the last fifth of a tube without cutting it open, which is a bit of a bore if you're on the go, and is almost not worth the bother unless you're at home.
It's fairly expensive for something you will wash off many times in a day, but as a treat, I believe it's worth it.
fragranced if you like this fragrance
easy to squirt out of the tube
good for people who remember to moisturize their hands before they get cracks and skin splits
a good gift
not rich enough for my scaly hands
fragrance- you may not like the smell
not that effective if you have very dry skin around your cuticle area
not that helpful by the time cracks and splits have appeared on your hands
HG handcream. I always end up buying this handcream again. Sometimes I try other brands, but nothing absorbs so quickly as this one. I don't mind the smell at all. To be honest, I love it. It smells a bit like oranges and mandarines... :-)
This hand cream helps to soften your hands and claims to strengthen your nails. When I use this product my hands are instantly soft and my dry cuticles disappear. I do find that you need to reapply this product throughout the day to maintain soft hands. The packing is pretty simple, nothing fancy. It has a mature fragrance which some people might not like. This hand cream will last you awhile since it is 100ml, and it should because it is almost $30.
I pay around 18€ for 100 ml in Europe for this. I have previously used Elizabeth Arden's "Eight Hour Hour Cream Intensive Moisturizing Hand Treatment" (25€/75 ml), which is great, but I wanted to try something new. This hand cream absorbs really fast, smells great and leaves the hands super smooth with a silky feeling. I absolutely love it. The tube is somewhat unpractical with the lid that needs to be completely taken off. I will probably continue using this one instead of Elizabeth Arden's.
Not moristurizing enough, good to use in summer time. Not crazy for this granny style smell, either.
Best hand cream ever, smells lovely and absorbs beautifully!
best hand cream Ive tried since I can't easily get my ultimate favorite hand cream (Beaute Pacifique) and I've tried them all.
The scent is strong and reminds me of my grandmother- thankfully she was an elegant woman.
A little goes a long way. No need frequent applies. Nice !
