My profession needs me to work with plaster and 10 different kinds of materials everyday, which wreck my hands in every possible way. Which is why my bag always carries a hand cream and I generally try and use it as often as I can. The last one I tried was by Neutrogena (reviewed here) which I loved immensely and was all set to repurchase it, but then I came across the Organic Surge Gentle Meadow Hand & Nail Cream thanks to random internet browsing and I couldn't help but give this one a shot :)
Since Smriti had already used their Tropical Bergamot Body Lotion and she had many good things to say about that one, I wasn't too apprehensive about trying more of their products.
"Your skin’s best friend… the intense moisturizing action of this quickly-absorbed cream provides loads of comfort and hydration. It works to prevent moisture loss to leave hands softened and rejuvenated. SLS and Paraben free. Not tested on animals."
Ingredient List: Aqua(Water), Aloe leaf juice, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycryl Stearate, Glycerin (Veg), Cocoa butter Isopropyl Myristate, Stearic acid, Cetearyl Glucoside, Oleyl Oleate, Lavender Flower oil, Tocopherol, Rose Geranium oil, Sodium Benzoate, Limonene, Linalool.
The cream comes housed in a squeezy tube with a flip top cap, decently sized to be carried around easily. It has always been carried in my bag over the past few months and hasn't leaked ever.
The cream has a nice thick consistency (though not as thick as the Neutrogena one..nothing can come close to that one!). It takes a couple of minutes to get absorbed and does not leave a very greasy feeling behind. The nourishing power is decent though it wouldn't work to heal hangnails and severely dried cuticles.
The fragrance is really nice and calming though some might take a while to get used to the tart bergamot smell. The cream is paraben and SLS free :)
Price: 595 INR for 75ml
Overall, it is a nice hand cream to try out especailly if you like the smell of lavender. I wouldn't say that it is better than the Neutrogena one (that still remains one of my favs) but it does its job decently
As a bonus it is paraben free too :)
