“ Brand: Oriflame / Texture: Cream / Type: Hand Cream / Suitable for: Hand „
My hands tend to get dry if I don't use a hand cream and throughout the day I don't have time to apply it and wait for it to dry (and I haven't found a hand cream that skin absorbs quickly) so every night, before I go to bed, I apply some hand cream. At the moment I am using Oriflame Silk & Cashmere Hand Cream and I am quite pleased with it.
It comes in a white tub with a pink lid at the bottom. I like the design of the container - it's very feminine and quite modern. Unfortunately, it isn't see-through so every time I want to see how much hand cream I have left, I need to put a light source behind it.
The cream itself has a white colour and you must be careful not to apply too much of it as your hands are also going to be white for a few minutes (which in my opinion looks quite funny but is very inconvenient unless you apply just before going to bed). That happens to me quite often as I tend to apply quite a lot of the cream every time I use it.
I have no idea whatsoever how silk & cashmere should smell. I must however admit that the scent of this hand cream is very pleasant. It is a bit powdery-like, it's very mild (so if strong scents make you feel dizzy, this is something for you!) and disappears quite quickly. It is not refreshing sort of scent, it's more of a calming smell.
According to producer: 'Soothing formula helps retain skin's moisture balance to hydrate hands'. I can agree with that as it doesn't promise to moisturise dry hands. It simply makes your hands softer and nourishes them which is enough for me. It doesn't dry them out (happened with some other hand creams in the past) and is easy to use. I am not sure whether it would work for dry skin but it does its job perfectly well for normal skin.
Overall, it is a good hand cream. A tub of 100 ml normally costs £4.45 but it can be found on offer quite frequently.
