Then once while roaming in a supermarket I purchased a hand cream and from then I am hooked to hand creams. Though I keep on trying different different hand creams.

Now coming to this particular hand cream this really serves my purpose of on the go hand cream. Though as much its claim of night renewal is concerned it’s not that effective but I am not complaining as it has got wonderful fragrance, which is not sticky and does its job of hydration very well.
