Claims: This daily hand cream with rosehip oil provides much needed moisture to mature skin while helping to reduce the appearance of brown spots.
Formula: Quite a greasy formula but has a nice rose scent.
Packaging: Metal squeezy tube- splits easily.
Thoughts: I received this as a gift (I had hinted about it). I love the packaging, it reminds me a bit of the more expensive brands such as Aesop. When I say I love the packaging, I mean I really like it to look at but it's the annoying type that the more you use, the more it starts to split. I like the rose scent - I have tried The Body Shop's Hemp Hand Protector before and I really don't like the smell of it. However, it feels quite greasy and takes a while to sink in and I don't think my hands felt that moisturised after. Because of this, I had to reapply a fair bit and I used the whole tube up quite quickly. It's recommended for mature skin, which I don't consider myself to have and I think it would suit all skin types. I love that it has SPF 15 and really like the smell but I don't think it made my hands feel that moisturised and it took a bit too long to sink in for my liking.
Pros: SPF 15. Rose Scent.
Cons: Packaging splits. Quite a greasy formula that takes a while to sink in.
Would I recommend this product?: It's ok but it's nothing to write home about. I think it would make a nice gift but mainly for aesthetics and the rose scent.
