It doesn’t matter what the temperature outside may be, winter or summer, I am using hand cream and cuticle oil multiple times a day!
I recently got the opportunity to try a small tube (1 oz) of Repechage Sea Spa Hand Cream, and I put it to my hand cream test. I’d never heard of this brand of skin care before, and I was a little wary based on the packaging. It looks a little 1970s to me, and that makes me think of my mother’s or grandmother’s skin care, not mine.
What’s the old saying? Never judge a book by its cover? It’s true. You shouldn’t. Not books, and not hand cream, either!
I usually like a hand cream that makes my hands feel smooth and somewhat silky for hours after I’ve applied it, even after I’ve washed my hands. I don’t want to constantly apply it because my hands get dry within an hour or two after initial application. I want to apply it in the morning and forget about it. And then after lunch, think, “wow, I still don’t really feel like I need to apply my hand cream again!”
I kept notes on how Repechage performed, and the results were great!
First, some basics. Here’s a list of the cream’s ingredients:
This cream is not tested on animals and as you can see, is paraben free. The scent that stands out to me most is the eucalyptus, combined with the lavendar. Mike said it almost has a beachy smell to it. Not like coconut sun tan lotion scent, but yeah, like sun tan lotion.
Here’s a shot of the cap and opening:
And a picture of the cream:
I wear-tested this cream for three days, but here are some of my notes from the first day I wear-tested this cream:
- I applied the cream at 8:50 a.m.
- It is a bit tacky until it sinks in.
- But it feels silky after it sinks in.
- Definitely an ocean-related scent.
- At 10:10 a.m., my hands still feel smooth and moisturized, and my cuticles look good.
- at 1:20 p.m., and again at 2:48 p.m., my hands still feel good.
This cream gets two thumbs up from me. I love the clean, stress-relieving properties of the eucalyptus scent. I love how the cream feels on my hands after it sinks in. I didn’t even need cuticle oil when I used this. I only really applied it twice a day, because my hands felt OK and I didn’t think it was necessary.
Repechage Sea Spa Hand Cream is available on the brand’s site here for $15.98 for a 2 oz bottle, and here for $7.90 for the 1 oz travel size. You can also get this hand cream from Beauty-Mart.com here, with the largest size available a 16 oz bottle for $64.98.
It’s a bit pricey for how much you get, and the packaging could use an update, but the product itself is outstanding and I was really pleased. You can bet I’m ordering another small bottle of this to keep in my purse!
