Hand creams are an essential during winters. During winters our skin tends to lack a lot of moisture and we need oils to replenish the skin. Now I know some people think that hand creams a little extra and you can just regular moisturizers for the same purpose. I totally agree. You can completely use any normal moisturizer for taking care of your dry hands. Hand creams, to be honest, are no different than regular moisturizers.
But again it comes down to the choice. Hand creams are just an extra addition to your skin care which you may and may not opt for. Also, hand creams tend to be slightly more fragranced than the moisturizers you would use on the face.
So I purchased a hand cream that oriflamme launched last month. It was basically launched on their 50th anniversary. It is Oriflame Golden Edition Hand Cream. I have been using it for a month now and here is its full review:

My Experience With The Oriflame Golden Edition Hand Cream
Now, this is the first time I actually purchased a hand cream because usually they are unnecessarily expensive and I have never really felt the need. But this time, oriflamme offered a golden edition hand cream and since they were launching it, it was at an amazing discount so I felt there was no harm in ordering it.
So when I received it, the first thing I noticed is its classic packaging. It comes in a white colored tube with golden writing on it. The tube in itself in not overly fancy but very classy looking. I love it! Also since all hand creams come in small tubes, this one is also tiny and travel-friendly.
It has a very mild fragrance which you will barely smell after a few minutes. Again, the scent is very classic and it almost smells like smoky roses if there does exist a fragrance like that. My brother thought it smelled like mild rose syrups used for flavoring biryanis……
Ok! So if you are someone who likes a heavy fragrance then you will not find this had cream satisfying. Anyways I really liked the fragrance because it is very classic smelling. I mean, roses smell classic always.
The consistency of the hand cream is very light and it gets instantly absorbed. It sort of has an oil base. It leaves my hands very moisturized and also I feel that it provides long-lasting results.
