I always took good care of my face and somehow did not pay much heed to hand care. One fine day, I realized that my hands turned out dry and tanned. I was taken aback when I noticed that my face tone and hand skin tone are not matching. Obviously, it’s not good to look at. I didn’t want to delay further and wanted to do something about it. When I saw this hand cream in BBW, I thought I should give this a try. What attracted me the most about this hand cream is its very own name Shea Cashmere & Silk. I went in for it expecting my hand to turn out soft, silky and radiant.

Non-greasy, it absorbs quickly to soothe and nourish skin, leaving hands soft as cashmere, smooth as silk and lightly fragranced with an irresistible blend of almond blossom, vanilla and creamy sandalwood.

My Experience with BBW True Blue Spa Shea Cashmere and Silk Hand Cream:-
I loved the packed look of it in the first place. The cream is nicely filled in a tube which is easy to use. Once we open the cap of it, we can press the tube and there you can see the cream out. It is a thick cream which smells greatly as that of vanilla scent. As soon as you apply it on your hand it sinks in quickly and leaves a glittery look on the area you applied. This glittery look and aroma stays for a long time. For me, it usually lasts for about 5-6 hours and when I come back from work, I can still see the glitter in some areas on my hand. I was dissatisfied with this cream to a certain extent because of its overpowering smell and the glitter. As a result of which I am not comfortable to use it while going out. So, I apply it while going to bed. It smells highly but it does leave my hands soft. Hence, I am making use of it this way. But it does not moisturize my hands much. Overall, it’s a passable but not a great product for me.
What I like about BBW True Blue Spa Shea Cashmere and Silk Hand Cream:-
I like the texture of the cream as it is soft and silky. It gets absorbed in the skin swiftly and it does cover the dry look of the skin and makes it look healthy when we use it.
What I did not like about BBW True Blue Spa Shea Cashmere and Silk Hand Cream:-
Strong aroma and glitter are the biggest drawbacks in this cream. These are not something I prefer in a hand cream. Also, the moisturizing content is lesser than expected.
Final Note: I would recommend it only if you have dry hands and also if you love some glitter & sweet scent on your hands. In that case, it is worth the price you spend. But if you prefer a moisturizing kind of cream with no glitter, mild aroma and of reasonable price then this one is not for you.
