I purchased this hand cream during my stay in Switzerland. The hotel was having a personal care section where some skin care products were available. I picked most of the products which are not available in India..

My Experience with Hydro Basics Hand & Nail Cream:
Packaging: Comes in a transparent sturdy plastic tube with screw top cap. Very handy and sturdier enough not to get squeezed or get opened in your purse.
Color & Texture: It is very pale green in color with thick creamy texture. The cream spreads easily on skin and gets absorbed instantly. Very light on skin and doesn’t leave any oily film or greasiness on skin.
Effectiveness: It keeps my hands well moisturized for couple of hours, say about 3-4 hours which is quiet ok for me. If I want it to stay for more than that, I apply my regular body lotion below this and it stays for about 6 hours without drying my hands in AC environment. At home I prefer to use only this on my hands. I purchased 4 tubes of this and I am on verge of finishing the last one. But I didn’t see any major difference in my nails as it claimed.
The only thing that puts me off with this is the list of chemicals. So I make sure not to read the ingredients and use it. Otherwise it’s my handbag companion wherever I go.
- Comes in very sleek & handy pack.
- Doesn’t make skin heavy or greasy.
- Keeps hands moisturized without drying them.
- Very mild fragrance which won’t bother even sensitive nose people.
- List of chemical ingredients.
- Didn’t make any difference to my nails.
- Not available in India.
A handy hand cream to carry around which will keep your hands hydrated and soft comparatively for longer duration than your regular moisturizer.
