This is a very good moisturising hand and nail cream that is only about £2 per tube. The smell is very nice (though I doubt you'd think so if you disliked coconut smell - but I find it nice and refreshing) and it really does make my hands feel nice.
I get dry hands a lot so tend to go through a lot of hand cream - this is one of the better ones, and yet one of the cheaper, so money doesn't always mean quality. This moisturises very well, and stops my hands from drying and chapping so much.
As with most hand creams, it does take some rubbing in for your skin to absorb it. Your hands can also be a little bit tacky after using it, so if I were you I'd not handle things you want to keep tidy without rubbing the excess off with a towel or a piece of kitchen paper.
This also washes off quite easily unless it's had time to *really* sink in - so I really do advise that you not wash your hands straight after putting it on, or you'll just be washing all of the hand cream straight off again. After about half an hour, maybe more, maybe less, depending on your individual skin, it's sunk in enough to not be bothered by washing your hands.
This is a good cream. It's cheap, and from a trusted brand (Marks and Spencer,) it does a good job, and smells nice.
I have dry skin on my hands and I have to take special care to ensure that they are hydrated. Whenever my hands have been in water they are prone to splitting on and around the knuckle area. I first started to use Marks and Spencer Coconut Hand Cream about a year ago when I borrowed a little bit from my friend at work as she was sitting opposite me. I immediately fell in love with the rich creamy coconut smell and after I had used it I noticed how very soft and supple my hands felt compared to the way they had before.
It was for this reason that I bought my first ever tube and paid only £1 for a generous 100ml tube. The hand cream itself is white in colour and it is very thick and creamy. The smell is to die for and it lasts for ages on my skin, long after it has been absorbed. It is brilliant at just melting into my parched skin and it is absorbed very quickly indeed and doe not leave my hands feeling at all sticky or tacky afterwards.
I now permanently have a tube of this at my desk in the office so I do use it frequently throughout the day whilst I am at work and now my friend borrows mine! It is such a pretty looking tube too and looks really lovely. There is nothing at all negative I can say about it and I really recommend it.
Coconut milk hand and nail cream
I was recently in need of a new hand cream and when I had a try of the tester in Marks and Spencer I decided to buy it.
The hand cream is advertised as being specially formulated with natural extract of coconut milk, to moisturise your hands and leave them soft and smooth.
PRODUCT AND PACKAGING...
The hand cream is packaged in a 100ml plastic tube with a screw on/off lid. On the front is a picture of a coconut and the back has all of the information and instructions.
When I open the lid to dispense some of the cream I find that it comes out easily and is white in colour. It is nice and creamy but not overly thick. One of the things I notice immediately is that it does have a very distinctive scent of coconut, which is what I was expecting. It's not unpleasant at all, and in fact I do find it very pleasant.
HOW TO USE IT...
The cream should be massaged into hands and nails,especially after washing. Since the cream is quite creamy, a little does go along way and when I use it I am pleased that its not overly greasy and doesn't make my hands feel sticky after use. The coconut smell does linger for some time after massaging it into hands so not recommended if you don't like the smell of coconut.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY...
The product costs £1 for 100ml and is available online at www.marksandspencer.com or in store.
The hand cream is very reasonably priced and although I have had it about a month now and do use it several times a day, I still have some left so its certainly not going to break the bank. It has proved itself to be very good at keeping my hands moisturised and as with all decent hand creams I tend to find that my nails seem stronger with frequent use.
Its non sticky and non greasy and for anyone looking for a decent hand cream with a pleasant smell, I would recommend this one.
