essence 24h hand protection balm


WP_20141229_006I am always searching for the perfect hand creme: one that is hidrating without leaving the hands sticky.

Therefore I always have several hand creames opened as I am always testing.

When I saw these limited edition hand balms an a DM shelf I grabbed one and went straight to the register because I was afraid I would change my mind and buy another one. I am trying to spend as little as possible on cosmetics these days 😀

I was so impatient that I opened it on the way home, in the tram.

It smells great, much more like cherry pips the coconut smell is not by far as noticeable. It lasts for at least one hour on the hands, after that I don’t feel it anymore but that can be also because I got acustomed to the smell. The texture is like the one of a rich night cream. The colour is white.

The package is very girlie and it has 100 ml. It is perfect if you want to put it in your purse. On one hand there are hardle any chances that it will spill in your purse and on the other hand you will not chip a nail while opening it.

As far as how moisturizing it is I am very satisfied. Given the fact that my skin was very rough when I tried it did its job really well. It is absorbed by the skin really fast and it does not leave any residue therefore I was able to use the keyboard within one minute after massaging it into my hands, including the palms as well. A small amount is enough so it will probably last quite some time.

I recommend it with all my heart. Now I regret that I did not buy also the one with cookies and almond. If I find I sure will.
