Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier Hand & Nail Balm Review
If you have been reading my blog regularly, you will know that I have already reviewed few hand creams and my love for hand creams started after I started living in Finland due to the weather condition here as I never used to use hand creams when I was in India.

Ingredients & About the Product:
You can find the ingredient list here.
Delicately scented with the relaxing scent of Fleur de Figuier, this glorious Hand & Nail balm offers 24 hour hydration and has a non –sticky, mattifying effect when applied to skin. Enriched with indulgent active ingredients such as fig extract, shea butter and aloe vera the balm leaves skin feeling nourished and soft. Ideal for normal to very dry skin.
The Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier Hand & Nail Balm comes in a tube packaging with screw type cap, I love the color and it looks pretty & cute. The brand has different variants of bath and body products and they are all very colorful and pretty in their packaging. I do not prefer the screw type cap because if you are using it on the go you have to be careful not to lose the small cap. I prefer the tube packaging with the cap attached to it for hand creams. I am not able to describe how it smells, but it has a fruity fragrance which lasts for few hours post application. I like the smell though some might find it strong. The hand cream has slightly thick texture thick but spreads well, get absorbed easily into the skin with few massage and leaves the hands moisturized. But if wash your hands very frequently or if you have very dry skin then you have re-apply as needed. This is a good moisturizing hand cream that makes skin supple with continuous usage. The hand cream also conditions nails as claimed making them strong with less breakage and also moisturizes the cuticles well. I usually get more hang nails but when I use this hand cream continuously I do not get them and my cuticles are in maintained in a good state. Overall, it is a nice hand cream but I still love my favorite The Body shop Almond hand & nail cream more than this and the non-availability is one of the major factor for me to try the other variants available.
Packing is pretty in color & looks cute
Creamy texture that spreads and get absorbed very well
It smells good though it is a personal preference
Moisturizes the hands well
Does not feel greasy
Hands appear very supple and smooth
Conditions the nails well making them strong and less prone to breakage
Moisturizes the cuticles well and prevent hang nails
Packaging can be changed as the small cap can easily slip your hands when using it on the go or in a hurry (though this kind of packaging is so cute)
Availability is a major issue except in some countries
Some might find the smell strong
