Avon Rich Moisture Hand and Nail Cream Review!

21 June 2013

You know what I'll rather not write.. may be.. or may be I should? Alright I'll start with it and see how far this review goes! I've been staring at this blank sheet for about 7 minutes now... I realize I look dumb and should start typing something! ok.. This is a review about a hand cream. May be like the worst cream..! hand cream you should not bother buying ordering (unless they've changed the formulation or even packaging! Let's not name n shame the whole company coz of a mere hand cream.. right?)

So, the culprit is AVON and the product in question is their "Avon rich moisture hand and nail cream".
Sorry for the dull low light photos :(

I wish I could just do a one line review : I just don't like this stuff! and don't buy this (ok 2-line review!)
You know what I mean.. I don't want to go any further than this..

*5 minutes later*

Umm...I should at least list some pros and cons. You reckon?

OK! I'll be very very brief (Yeah right!).

  • Elegant packaging that gives it an expensive and posh look.
  • Cheap (about $4 or $5 on special, Can't remember exactly.. It was a while back!).
  •  Boasts of some good ingredients: Glycerin, lanolin, sesame oil.
  • Smells fresh, very flowery (likes of night-blooming jasmine/lady of the night).
  • Light moisturizer.
  • Ample quantity for the price-125 grams.
Consistency : Runny!

  •  Packaging is so inappropriate, the cream is more like a runny lotion and when you squeeze some out, the whole 125 g wants to come out. I end up putting it all over my legs.. Its not even funny I tell you! (THIS IS MY BIGGEST GRIPE!)
  • The moisture effect is very temporary, hands are dry as a parched land in the morning.. duh!
  • It doesn't absorb into skin! Wash hands and that slippery silicon feeling.. not good! washes out like a dream I'd say (pun intended).
  • It claims it makes nails BEAUTIFUL and strong..I certainly didn't see anything like that. Nops! not at all.
  • It gives a sticky feeling so if using this while typing.......... no comments!
  • Has a lot of alcohol in it (as per the label).
  • Since its Avon so its definitely a pain to order it. You have to find a rep near your place, contact them and then wait forever!

Avon Rich Moisture Hand and Nail Cream
