Winters are almost here, and you can feel the chill in the air in Delhi in the morning and evenings. I am just totally loving the weather currently. Well, winters also mean you gotta use a hand cream more often than in summers. I picked up the Marks & Spencer Hand Cream in Peach and Almond some time back, and am using it a lot these days.
The M&S hand creams are available in 3-4 variants, and the Peach and Almond variant is the ‘fruity’ one of the lot. Read on to know my take on it 🙂
Price: Rs. 199 for 50mL
Packaging: The hand creme comes in a simple squeezy tube with a white colored flip-top cap. Each different variant has a different tube color. The Peach and Almond variant has a light peachy tint. The packaging is simple and travel friendly.
Ingredients: Mentioned in the picture below 🙂
My take on Marks and Spencer Hand Cream- Peach Almond: The cream is a white colored product. The texture looks thick, but actually the cream is a little light and fluffy on spreading, as in, it is not so heavy, more like a gel-cream. I hope that made some sense. The fragrance is a mix of fruity (peachy) and a bit of floral. Nice and fresh, and I think almost everybody will like it. Not too over-powering as a fragrance.
On spreading, it gets completely absorbed into the skin, and does not leave any oily, sticky feeling on the skin at all. Now, for those with normal skin, this is good. Those with dry skin on the hands may not like it. I personally keep it in my hand-bag for work and travel, so I can use this non-sticky hand cream on the go, and never have to wait before I can touch my phone again 😛
That said, it does leave the skin moisturised and soft. No complaints on that part.
This cream will also come in handy for the office drawers. At night, I prefer using something more moisturising, more heavy-duty 😛 to deeply nourish the skin. I’m guessing winters will also demand for something more moisturising.
Pros of Marks and Spencer Hand Cream- Peach Almond:
- Nice fragrance, light and fresh- smells of peahces
- Moisturises sufficiently for day-wear
- Affordably priced
- Travel friendly packaging
Cons of Marks and Spencer Hand Cream- Peach Almond:
- Not too good for those with very dry skin
Verdict: If you are on the look-out for a non-sticky hand cream which is decently moisturising, give this one a shot. Smells good too! More apt for day-time use.
