The hand cream is designed to target dry or damaged skin. It contains shea butter, creamy balm that penetrates quickly to protect, nourish and moisturize hands. Honey, almond extracts and coconut oil also helps the shea butter in making the hands soft and smooth.
It is not oily or feels slippery on skin when applied. The fragrance is light and fresh floral scent that is enticing.
Pea size amount is enough to lather on both of my hands.
The cream lasts long on my hands unless I wash it with soap and water. This cream really helped nourishing my hands from dryness, I work in a hospital as a nurse so my hands are very exposed to antibacterial hand soaps and gels that causes dryness and roughness of skin on my palms. After work, I now apply these to ease the dryness. And it really gives back the smoothness and softness of my hands.
