"The hand that rocks the cradle, rules the world" is a famous phrase which throws light upon the fact that a woman has to play multiple roles in her day-to-day life. The dynamic avatars that she has to don is absolutely unimaginable. But these mighty hands which are engaged in numerous activities throughout the day, often get the least attention when it comes to daily care regime. Is the monthly manicure routine enough to tend for those hard working and care deprived hands? I am sure the answer is no. But how often do we moisturize them? Every two or three days? Once a week? The response is varied. Personally, I feel it should be every single day! Being the daughter of a working mother, I have always seen her handling her work life and family life with equal elan. Never did she miss out on her pre-office and bedtime routine of moisturizing her hands. No wonder those care giving hands remained soft and supple even after enduring a long day of hard work. When Fabindia launched its range of hand creams, I had the pleasure of gifting her Fabindia Lemon Intensive Hand Cream for her birthday. Little did I know that soon I would be lured by this simple yet amazing hand cream. Do you want to know why? Read on!

My Experience With Fabindia Lemon Intensive Hand Cream:

The Fabindia Lemon Intensive Hand Cream comes in a white squeeze tube with a transparent flip cap, jacketed with yellow label bearing the name of the product and other necessary information. The hand cream is white in color and gradually dissolves into colorless formula with gentle massage. I found the texture to be slightly on the thicker side. Nevertheless it is absorbed quickly. The packaging is travel friendly so that your precious hands are not deprived of adequate care and moisture even when you are on the go.

I specially love its refreshing lemony aroma. It simply lifts up my mood. After a tiring day or on the way to work, a pea sized amount is enough to gently massage my hands thus keeping it soft and moisturized. With prolonged and regular use, I did see a difference. My hands feel supple and tender even during dry season or when inside a super chilled air conditioned room. The presence of glycerin indeed works wonders for softening the palm. It is effective for tanned skin as well. But don't expect an overnight magical effect. Continuous application with dedication brings about the change.

The formula gets absorbed pretty fast. But hailing from a city famous for its humid weather, Kolkata, I avoid using it on days when there is a lot of moisture in the atmosphere. On such days, this hand cream tends to feel a little greasy. Tagging along an oily feeling throughout the day is not a very good feeling and so I skip it. But it is a must before my much waited bedtime. I avoid cheating on this routine even on long, stressful days. After all, who doesn't want to drift into a peaceful sleep as the aroma of rejuvenating lemon takes over your senses and waking up to a neat and well moisturized hands.

Pros Of Fabindia Lemon Intensive Hand Cream:
  • Easy care for the hands
  • Keeps the hand soft and supple

  • Tends to feel greasy on very humid days
