I have my first tube of C&E handcream thanks to an incredibly generous and dear friend who gave me an RM50 coupon for C&E -specifically to buy this hand cream because she knows I'm batty about handcreams and citrus cents. Normally I can't bring myself to blow so much dough on a hand cream but after using this for two weeks I don't know how I'll ever give it up!
C&E handcreams are famous for a reason. They're thick, a little goes a long way, your hands are beautifully moisturised BUT the cream sinks in fast and does not leave your hands feeling greasy. What more could you ask for?
While using this hand cream just once or twice a day and every night (I keep it by my bedside) all my nasty hangnails have gone away. My cuticles now look healthy and normal and I haven't even had to use my Burts Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream very much. Mostly I use it when I'm bored and because I adore the scent. =P
And ah yes the scent. If you love citrus scents, this hand cream is gorgeous. No it does NOT smell like detergent. It's a cleaner greener citrus scent with a hint of spices that makes it yummy, refreshing and very sophisticated. If this were a perfume I'd be spritzing it all over me.
RM73 gets you 100g and RM46 gets you 50g. While I would like the more portable size, the Chinese Hokkien streak in me did the math and you definitely get more bang for your buck if you go for the 100g tube. I really hope this scent is permanent, I'm not sure if I can do without it!
