Marks &Spencer Magnolia Hand &Nail Cream Review

November 10, 2013 Setu 1 Comments

I love hand and nail creams. Really girls, I was unaware of any such thing till an year back when my sister gifted me a Marks and Spencer set containing hand and nail cream. I have been smitten by them since then.For all those who think any cream can substitute hand and nail cream , you are wrong.A hand and nail cream moisturizes your hands and nails without making them greasy. So since then I have been going back to Marks and Spencer for their variety of hand and nail creams.
This one is from their floral range.

My Experience

I had already purchased a deodorant from the same Magnolia flowers range. The fragrance was mystifying. But it used to leave a white powdery thing on my clothes/underarms after application. So I stoped using it. I really liked fragrance yet couldn't use it. So when I saw this fragrance as Hand and Nail Cream, I quickly grabbed one. I have already used the M&S -Natures Extract Pampering Cocoa Butter hand and nail cream . It was 199 for 50 ml while this was just half the price. So with some doubt I purchased it.

However Magnolia Hand & Nail Cream was not as thick as Cocoa butter. The consistency was a little more watery and light.I was doubtful if it is going to be moisturizing enough. But it was.It has a beautiful floral fragrance and since I use it my office after every hand wash, I had my neighbors asking me about it :) . It is light and creamy in texture. It makes hands supple and nails shiny without making it greasy at all. Hand and Nail creams are extremely important considering how drying our hand can be otherwise working air conditioned office for long hours. As a result of drying your cuticles will tear up and nails will get flaky. Although this cream doesn't do much for nails. But atleast moistens them and greases them. I take special care to rub the cream on my cuticles and nail tips.

It really makes me fall in love with my hands.Really, who doesn't like shiny soft hands?The price is a bargain. Although the quality is slightly lower than M&S -Natures Extract Pampering Cocoa Butter hand and nail cream. This one is not as thick and creamy but does its job decently.
