Inecto Pure Coconut Oil Hand & Nail Cream
Advantages: Contains Coconut Oil and it makes your hands soft
Disadvantages: It smells artificial and makes your hands feel greasy
Inecto is a brand which believes in the benefits of Coconut Oil and as such they have created a whole range of beauty products containing this pure ingredient. From hair products to skin treatments, Inecto has created products in a bid to solve just about any beauty dilemma using Coconut Oil as its main ingredient. One of the products that frequently shows up in my Christmas stocking is the Pure Coconut Intensely Moisturising Hand And Nail Cream.
What does the product do?
The product claims to moisturise dry hands and to leave them feeling soft and smooth. It also promises to hydrate thirsty and brittle nails to prevent them from snapping. It claims that it will nourish the skin and nails deeply in order to leave them stronger and in a much better condition.
How does the product work?
The product includes a dose of Coconut Oil that is 100% pure. This oil is incredibly hydrating and moisturises the skin deeply leaving it feeling softer and smoother. It strengthens the skin from the deepest level so it will be in a better condition and it helps to heal and repair chapped skin on the hands. As it is an antioxidant, the oil helps to fight against free radicals in the skin meaning that your hands will look younger for longer.
The Coconut oil is enriched with fatty acids and vitamins so it nourishes your skin and makes it healthier. The oil also benefits the nails by hydrating them deeply and preventing your nails from snapping. By nourishing the nails, it makes them stronger and leaves them in a better condition and gives them a beautiful shine. As the oil conditions the cuticles, it means your nails grow in a more healthy way.
The hand cream also contains Glycerin which is a humectant. This means that the substance encourages the moisture to be drawn into the deepest layers of the skin and also helps it to be retained there. This means that the skin and the nails will be deeply hydrated and remain that way for a much longer period of time which prevents the dryness from returning.
How do you use the product?
You use the product in the same way as any other hand cream. The product is to be massaged onto clean, dry hands paying particular attention to dry areas such as knuckles and also the cuticles. The cream can be applied as often as required throughout the day.
Packaging and Price
The packaging follows the same pattern as all of Inecto's products. The hand cream comes in a white tube with a frosty but clear screw top lid. The tube has stripes of different shades of green across the front and a picture of a Coconut. The product has a tiny bit of information on the pack in lots of different languages.
The hand cream comes at a really cheap price. It will cost you around £1.50 for 75ml of the cream and it can be bought from most pharmacies, department stores and online websites. I have seen it for as cheap as 99p in some places so if you keep your eyes open, you should get yourself a real bargain.
The cream is easily dispensed from the tube, despite the plastic of the packaging being fairly thick. It comes out with a gentle squeeze although as it gets emptier, there will still be a lot of product left in the tube that I can't access so I'll end up cutting it open so as not to waste any. The screw top lid is not as convenient as a flip top lid either because I have to wait until I've massaged the cream into my hands before I can put the lid back on the tube.
The first thing that hits you about this cream is the aroma of Coconut. It is strong and very present from the second is leaves the tube. I am a massive fan of all things Coconut and although this cream does smell strongly of it, it is a rather synthetic smell. According to the ingredients, a perfume has been added so I don't think the Coconut that I can smell is actually from the Coconut Oil which is a disappointment. It's not a bad aroma, it just smells artificial. The aroma is long lasting and stays on my skin for a really long time.
The cream is a bright and pure white and the consistency of it is thinner than most hands creams that I have used but it is still thick enough to get the job done. Because the cream is not as thick as I would have expected, you do end up using a fair amount of the product each time. I would have this down as a negative if this product was expensive as it means that I will have to replace it quickly, but as it is so cheap I don't mind.
The cream is absorbed really quickly and doesn't take much massaging before it has disappeared. It doesn't leave any sheen on the skin or particularly make my skin look moisturised or healthy but my hands feel hydrated. The product leaves my hands feeling greasy even though they don't look it which isn't a particularly nice feeling.
The cream does however make my skin feeling softer and smoother and my nails are stronger with continued use. My hands don't feel tight or dry for about two hours after application and the tube is small enough to be carried around with me in my hand bag to put on again when I feel the need.
All in all, for the price of the product I can't complain too much. It smells very Coconutty but it is an artificial aroma. It makes my hands feel soft and smooth although it doesn't make them glow with health. My nails are stronger and the cream leaves my hands feeling hydrated for a few hours but I don't like the greasy feeling that it gives. This is not a product that I would actively seek out or purchase for myself but whenever I am given it as a gift, I do find myself using it all up. It's worth the £1.50 but not a penny more.
Summary: A hand cream that makes your hands soft and smooth for a few hours
