I am currently working as a Summer Intern at an Engineering firm. The site is based at a quarry and my project requires me to work at the labratory with chemicals on a daily basis. Even though I am a to-be Chemical and Materials Engineer, chemicals scare me! Everytime I’ve completed an experiment I will vigorously wash my hands – vigorous being the key word. As a result, I get dry hands all the time. They don’t flake but I just need to be moisturized, I don’t like that dry feeling at all. I used the sunscreen at work as a moisturiser for a while but it just made them worse. I was helping a friend move out and found this hand cream I had gifted them – I stole it. It is the best thing ever. Also the blue bit on the tube is methylene blue sneakily finding it’s way onto everything I own (grrrrr).
The blurb reads, Yes if your hands have been dried by the cold and if your skin feels rough and coarse.Handcocoon instantly nourishes and soothes dry skin. After 1 hour hydration is increasd by 61%. Dry hands feel soothed and comfortable again.It is very rare for the description at the back of products to ever be right. This one is! I don’t know about the statistics because I am just one person voicing my opinion but this cream is ah-mah-zing.
I take a dab (the tinniest amount that squeezes out) and just lather it in. It is a cocoon. My skin feels silky, supple, moisurized and nourished. A bonus is it’s citrus fragrance which I can only dream that they make into a perfume – it is so addictive.
There are no bad points and that is saying something if you know me. It cost me $5 at a make up sale, but looking at the back it seems to be a UK product. I can’t find it in NZ which is really going to be a bother when it runs out.
