Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream Review

59825_clarins_hand_and_nail_treatment_cream

Pros:

Does nothing for my dry hands.

Cons:

Gets absorbed pretty fast.

More:

In my experience stuff from Clarins can either be a total hit or a total miss . For example I can‘t see my beauty routine without their flash balm – which is genius or their body lotion – which has saved my dry skin over and over again. But this hand cream turned out to be a complete disappointment. It smells nice, it sinks in pretty fast – but seriously within 10 minutes of application my hands feel extremely dry again – which is super annoying. Basically one can re-apply this cream all day long without any real results. I won‘t repurchase this one again.

Mia Höytö Pumpuli Nourishing Hand Cream Review

Pros:

Is absorbed fast and makes my hands soft.

Cons:

The smell.

More:

Mia Höytö is a Finish eco-certificated brand. It was created by Mia who is a beautician and an economist and has existed for the past 4 years. I stumbled upon this brand when reading about hot ecological Scandinavian beauty products and was intrigued.

This cream is made from organic oils (Sea buckthorn seed oil, argan oil, almond oil ) and extract (rosemary and oat). It promises to nurture your hands and make them soft.  I like the clean design of the bottle, and them pump makes it very easy to not overdose on hand cream. The cream is absorbed very quickly and I can feel an instant result. Though when my hands are really dry the cream really has to be re-applied quit a few times to reach the desirable result. The smell of the cream is a bit special, though I can‘t really put my finger on it (it‘s neither fruity, sweet, or neutral but smells a bit chemical). Despite my dislike of the smell of this hand cream, I am excited about having found a new eco-friendly brand lead by a cool woman.
