First things first, Glossier Hand Cream released in April and was all over the news not because of influencer’s raving about it on the gram but because they gave out their first 10,000 pieces to the U.S. Hospital Workers (Good on them!)
Truth be told, I haven’t been so much of a hand-cream person but obviously the last few months have brought about a lot of changes including me splurging on hand-creams (thanks to the over usage of sanitizers and gloves) so since I’m on my hand-cream phase, I thought I should try out the newly launched glossier hand cream and review it.
The cute rubber container packaging in the classic glossier colours (pink and red) obviously got a 10/10 from me and I was also impressed at how easy to use it was, the precise nozzle applicator ensures the perfect ratio of the cream is dispersed (the clumsy person that I am was GENUINELY impressed)
I think the texture of the cream is good & not too greasy however contrary to popular opinion, I wasn’t a fan of the scent, it was a little too musky for my liking. According to Glossier’s site, it’s the “Glossier You scent reimagined for the hands,” – I haven’t tried out the glossier you (but now I know I don’t want to)
The hand cream is dermatologist -tested, cruelty-free, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, nut-free, GMO-free, and suitable for all skin types. It’s priced at about 18 dollars in the US but if you’re ordering it locally, it would be for about AED 109 – you can buy it here
Overall my reaction to the hand-cream was quite meh! meh-nly because the scent did not have a feel-good factor for me and I don’t think it’s worth AED 109
