♫ Bii 畢書盡 - I Know
If you're a frequent nail polish user and chronic hand-washer like me, you'll probably have similar experiences regarding 'nail nightmares' - very dry skin, rough cuticles, fragile nails, etc. This is the part where hand cream comes in really handy (pardon the pun), especially if you're often exposed to air-conditioned areas which are typically very drying to skin.
I recently received two brand new products from Hada Labo to try out, which is their hand cream with natural essential oil. These hand creams are said to be free from alcohol, colorants, fragrance and mineral oil, making it suitable even for sensitive skin.

|Hada Labo+ Lavender Whitening Hand Cream|
It is fortified with super hyaluronic acid, arbutin and lavender essential oil to help to maintain the skin's fairness and restore smoothness. The scent of lavender is also great for calming and relaxing, while vitamin E and B5 helps to repair dry skin.
The lavender variant has a very distinct lavender scent, which most lavender-lovers will like. It has a slightly more watery texture compared to the rose, which makes it easy to spread onto your hands. However, it doesn't seem to be as easily absorbed as the rose, and leaves skin with a dewy finish even after several minutes. If you have normal-toned skin and are looking for a hand cream that whitens and moisturizes, this would be the product for you! :)
|Hada Labo+ Rose Deep Moisturizing Hand Cream|
It contains hyaluronic acid, super hyaluronic acid, and oat β-glucose that penetrates into the deep layers of skin for optimum moisturization. Bulgarian rose and 3 other kinds of rose essential oils help to soothe and calm the skin, prevent irritation and gives the hand cream a wonderful relaxing fragrance. Vitamin E and macadamia seed oil are also added to provide extra moisture.
Ah, I cannot emphasize enough on my love for roses and rosy scents! The rose variant has a very strong rose scent (actually it's so strong that it smells kind of artificial ^^;;) and has a denser texture compared to the lavender. This one is perfect for me, not only because of the rose scent, but also because it deeply moisturizes dry hands. It is not as easily spread as the lavender, but it leaves a satin-like feeling before being absorbed. ♥
The Hada Labo Lavender Whitening and Rose Deep Moisturizing Hand Creams (50g) retail at RM 19.90 each, and is available exclusively at Watsons.
