Hand creams are a product that I have hated for years and years. Every one that I have tried, I hated the way it left my hands feeling and found most of them didn't anything to improve the hydration and softness of my hands. In my stocking I unwrapped the Figs & Rouge Vanilla Pistachio Hand Cream. I wasn't sure about this and because I have always hated hand creams, I didn't think I was going to like it before I had even tried it but I was so wrong.
Lets start with the packaging. It is very seasonal and looks wintery which is perfect for this time of year. It is a small squeezable tube which is handy when you start to come to the end. The scent is displayed at the top of the tube with the brand name just below. The packaging is pretty bright coloured so even with the pattern being a little bit on the wintery side you could still use this in the warmer months.
The scent is lovely and isn't too strong or overpowering. The scent is vanilla pistachio, can't say I can smell anything too nutty. I am a massive vanilla scent lover so this is right up my street. The scent kind of reminds me slightly of playdoh which is a little strange. The scent does linger for a while on my hands but you can only smell it if you sniff up close to your hands.
This hand cream makes my hands feel incredible from the minute that I apply it! My hands feel so smooth and soft and it sinks in instantly and doesn't leave my hands feeling oily or greasy! My hands have been so dry, flaky and so sore and this always relieves the soreness and really helps get the hydration back in my hands. I find this is always in my handbag and I apply it multiple times a day, I cannot get enough of this stuff! Since I have been using this regularly my hands have been so much softer which I have been enjoying.
This hand cream comes in two sizes, I have the small version which is 20ml. This size retails for £3.95 and the larger size of 80ml retails for £7.95. If this scent isn't something you would like there is also Mango & Mandarin, Rose Berry, Cherry Blossom, Coco Rose, Mocha Orange and French Vanilla. I cannot recommend this hand cream enough and I am definitely going to pick up the larger size in another scent option soon!
