I deem Neutrogena products to be good quality. Whenever I buy their products, I always have high expectations and I have no reason to do so but somehow something makes me believe that Neutrogena products are good! I was expecting myself to rave about their Concentrated hand cream so let’s see if I am going to!
Product: Neutrogena Concentrated hand cream
Claim: Instant relief of dry, chapped hands just a dab needed
Quantity: 50 ml
I had so many high hopes from this hand cream My hands were so dry that when I tried this at emart, it felt like this was a really moisturizing hand cream. I picked this up instantly. I have used this many times and I am disappointed!
I read a lot of reviews online about this because I was just not ready to accept that I could hate a hand cream! The first is its consistency. It is a translucent, jelly type substance like Vaseline Petroleum Jelly. If I really wanted to apply it, I would have gotten Vaseline for a fraction of the price.
And then it feels a bit sticky on my hands. I really dislike that feeling especially since this hand cream does not seem to be long-lasting at least on my hands. The reviews have been completely opposite to my experience but I understand that I have different preferences than others and a different skintype. Plus I write this blog based on my experience only, something that works for me may not work for others and vice versa!
I gave this a 2.5 because it is a hand cream and does moisturize hands for some time. It does not smell much, again a lot like Vaseline Petroleum Jelly. I really want to try out the other hand creams from Neutrogena especially the Neutrogena Fast-Absorbing hand cream to see if it works for me. Have you tried this hand cream?
