My Experience With Patanjali Moisturizer Cream:
Packaging: The cream comes in a plastic tub packaging with a baby pink screw cap. The outer cardboard packaging has all the necessary details written on it which you can find on the tub as well. I like the small compact tub which has a refreshing summery color. There is another white lid underneath preventing the cream from spilling (not that it's watery in consistency). So for me, the lid is useless. One can travel with the cream sans the lid as well. The screw cap is secure enough.
Fragrance: It has a beautiful and soothing smell of Shea butter and cocoa. It is not that over- powering, but the sensitive nose will have a problem. I suffer from headaches, so even I cannot tolerate strong fragrances but this one is rather soothing despite being strong. The fragrance lingers on for half n hour or so and after that, it vanishes.
Texture/Consistency: The cream is baby pink in color. It is rich and thick. But still, it gets completely absorbed into the skin in no time. I hate creams which take forever to get absorbed. It doesn't leave any sort of residue behind or any greasy feeling (refer the swatch). Since it is a rich cream, in summers, the palms do get sweaty post application. So I can assume that it will not suit oily skinned beauties as you will feel greasy.
Efficacy: The cream is very soft and gentle on the skin. I use it on my whole body and it nourishes my skin leaving it soft and supple. When applied on hands, it instantly makes them smooth to touch. But I was so disappointed when I used it on my face. I was looking for a chemical-free cream for my face since it is too sensitive. So I applied it on my face and boom! It broke me out. I understand that it is a thick cream which should be suitable for dry skin, but no! It really is not good for face, at least for my face. Let me also clarify here, that I used this cream in combination with Patanjali’s face wash (face wash also used for the first time). Now I don't know whether it is the face wash or the cream which broke me out, but I don't care. I have stopped using the face wash and this cream on face. It works wonderfully on the body, though. It stays for good 4-5 hours without having the need to re-apply. After washing the hands, it gets removed but hands don't feel dry, the cream keeps them hydrated.

- Non-greasy cream

Cons Of Patanjali Moisturizer Cream:

As a body moisturizer, I really like it. As you can see from the pictures, I have already used it up. It is better than other high-end body butter also. For winters, it is very good. It keeps the skin nourished and hydrated leaving it soft and supple. I would recommend this to very dry skin people but it is not suitable for the face. This is only good for body application.
