I was pleased to be chosen to review this hand cream from Baby Bouquets as I am just about to return to work after maternity leave and have been looking for nice things for my new desk. The hand cream is described on the Baby Bouquets website as ‘an adorable little jar of wonderfully fragranced hand cream’ which sounded perfect.
The jar was posted to me in a small square cardboard box with lots of bubble wrap to keep it safe in the post which it did perfectly. On opening the package I have to admit I was a bit surprised at just how tiny the jar actually was! The hand cream comes in a very small glass jar which holds just 15ml of cream. The jar is visually appealing being decorated with pretty vintage floral images and has a metal screw top lid. The lid has a sticker with a lovely picture of an angel playing a violin surrounded by flowers on it. From the information on the website I can see that there are a number of different images available which are sent at random and I imagine they would all be similar to this. There is also a label detailing all of the ingredients of the cream with some allergy advice.
The cream itself smells gorgeous, it has a lovely fruity fragrance. It is light and rubs in easily and the fragrance lasts for a long time, even after washing my hands. After using the cream my hands felt soft and there was no greasy residue.
All in all I was very pleased with this product, it would be ideal for carrying around in a handbag or toiletry bag, and as mentioned previously for keeping in a desk drawer. I did think that a plastic pot may be more practical as being made of glass it is quite heavy for the size of the jar and I would be concerned it might smash if it got dropped (although it does seem very sturdy!).
The only slight negative for me personally was that I did find it a bit difficult to get the cream out of the tiny jar with my chunky fingers and long nails but that is a personal observation and would not deter me from buying this product again, I only wish that it came in bigger jars as the cream is fab!
RRP: £3.99 (15ml)
