Absorbs pretty well but doesn't moisturise all that well. The packaging is quite unattractive and the smell is horrid, though mercifully not strong. There must be many better handcreams at this price.
Again, I am sorry to rain on the parade here, but I find this handcream rather mediocre. It absorbs well, but that's also where the problem lies; it completely disappears, and I have to reapply very frequently. Also, I am not a fan of the smell, which is nice, but far too strong.
How can I say that! I feel in love with the smell! And it's so effective! I work as cashiering and believe me, it's not good at all for the hands! This is pure miracle
My last bf was giving me his hands everytime i was putting it on !!!! lol
I've just finished my first tube of it! *sigh*
I really love the packaging, you can bring it with you everywhere you want
I adore the smell of this hand cream but I didn't live up to my expectations. I like thick, very moisturizing hand creams and often put up with some greasiness to ensure that my hands are comfortable and moisturized. I wash my hands a lot and they feel tight and uncomfortable if I do not apply a thick cream afterwards. This hand cream is way too thin and light for my taste. However, I think this is a 4 start product because of its scent: it is hard to describe but unusual and beautiful. I now use this hand cream as a light body moisturizer: the scent lingers throughout the day and doubles as perfume. So while I wouldn't repurchase this product to use on my hands, I can see myself buying it again to use as a body moisturizer/perfume.
My Nuxe Baume des Familles et my Huile Prodigieuse are staples of mine that I will buy over and over again. However, branching out into the rest of the Nuxe brand, I have found products that did their job but were only average, which is the case of this hand cream (and the eye cream for that matter). I wear hand cream rather frequently because I have a lot of callouses that threaten to form around my nails and cuticles from years of playing piano and guitar unless I am vigilant with the hand cream (and shea butter and cuticle cream...) especially at night, but I was looking for a day hand cream that would not be too greasy.
Pros: The tube is the perfect size for a purse. The tube is thin and flat, so it could even go in a clutch. The cream soaks in quickly and is not greasy. Smells like the Huile Prodigieuse. It is less than 3oz so you could take the full size tube on an airplane in your little ziploc bag. I like this a LOT more than L'Occitane's hand cream as far as how it absorbs and how good my nails look.
Cons: The price, rather the price versus quality payoff. I can't help thinking that the price is a little jacked up, especially considering that I think this product is good, but not exceptional like some of Nuxe's other products. The consistency is a bit runny, but that is a by product of this hand cream absorbing so well. Finally, this slips off when I wash my hands and I have to use a lot of product when I apply or reapply.
In summary, if you are a hardcore Nuxe fan, you will not be disappointed by the hand cream, but it will not be your one true love like some of their other products. I will finish this tube and probably buy this again, if only because the 2.6 ounce tube is convenient for travelling, and the consistency is so runny I could probably use it in other places in a pinch.
i had run out of my trusty vaseline hand and nail cream and since im living abroad in france i came across this and it is not so expensive here.it is by far the worst hand cream i have used,i can not stand the smell its sickly and to be honest it stinks.i dont find it smells like honey or even flowers.I could get over the smell if i thought it was a good product,compared with other cheaper brands i dont think it is moisturizing enough.i dont have particularly dry hands as i look after them,this drys in quickly but a few minutes later i hate that my hands feel really dry from the cream.i would not recommend it and i doubt i will even finish the tube.
I love the scent of the Nuxe Reve de Miel handcream. In spite of its name, it does not have a distinct honey smell like for instance the L´Occitane Creme de Miel. The smell is rather floral and reminds me of honeysuckle. The cream has a light texture and is quickly absorbed. However, it is not a good choice for dry winter hands. Along with the Caudalie handcream, it is my favorite handcream for daytime use.
This is a mediocre product at best; very light formulation, although it absorbs well it seems to vanish into my hands with no moisturizing effect whatsoever. I find the floral fragrance off-putting, but I am biased against scented body products. One definite plus to the paackaging (a plastic squeeze tube with flip top) is the slimness of the tube--fits in a clutch!!! Otherwise, I'll pass on this one and stick to my staple daily hand creme by Propoline (see my review). Rather expensive, from Nuxe in France.
I really like this hand cream. I find it very similar to Clarins Creme Jeunesse des Mains which I always love, but I can't bring myself to spend $33 CAD on hand cream to replace my little sample tube. This one cost me $16 and I'm very pleased with it. I like the smell a lot and it feels nice, not greasy but definietly moisturizing enough in my opinion, but even though it's winter my hands aren't super dry, they're more like normal-dry. I've become kind of a hand cream addict lately, my top five are this one, Avede Hand Relief, Herbacin Kamille, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream and the Clarins Creme Jeunesse.
I thought I liked this after trying a sample but once I purchased the bottle and started using it, no such luck. It seems to actually dry my hands/nails out even more than they already are. The smell is a little strong but it disappears soon after. Will not be repurchasing.
