This cream attracted my attention by its kind of retro packaging - a white and golden box with a lady that looks as if she came from a '50s commercial. The cylindrical white plastic pot inside (75 ml) is quite basic though. The clever thing about this overnight hand cream is that it comes together with a pair of white cotton gloves. The idea is that you have the pot by your bedside, you splash on the cream and put the gloves on before your night sleep, and you wake up in the morning with soft refreshed and rejuvenated hands thanks to the Wheatgerm and Sweet Almond Oil it contains. My experience: I used this white cream during the winter, for 2-3 months, and found it to have a pleasant smell and texture and to be easily spread and absorbed. This last feature was actually the downside: it was absorbed too quickly, almost instantly, and after I put on the gloves and a small amount was absorbed by the cotton as well, my hands started feeling dry and uncomfortable wrapped in the gloves overnight. Verdict: Although it did make my hands feeling soft and moisturised when applied on its own, I believe the texture should be more oily or buttery for an overnight glove application. Apart from that, it was very pleasant, non-messy, and I have kept the gloves to use them with a thicker cream. You can find it in big supermarkets and online for about £5-6.
