The other day I was in a full on shopping spree on the Dischem website after I discovered that they accepted PayPal. While adding a few items to my cart, I had about a R30 left and looked for something affordable/new that I haven’t tried before and that is when I got introduced to a new brand that I am so eager to explore further.
Now before I get into introducing this brand to you and telling you a little more of what they offer, just know that this product that I purchased was definitely a spur of the moment item and I may have been drawn to the product because of it’s beautiful packaging. The product that I will be reviewing today is a hand and nail cream duo from a local brand called Amz Loves. Not too long ago I reviewed the Cath Kidston hand cream and of course me justifying my purchases, decided that the one tube will go in my handbag and the other in my car. Okay. Let’s leave it at that.When I received my online order, I saw the name of the brand and hopped online to see what the brand was all about as I haven’t seen any reviews of it before. The brand launched to the SA market just a few weeks ago and I have a feeling that SA consumers are going to love it. They have a huge variety of the most beautiful bath and body products, candles, lip scrubs… the works! The best thing about their products are that they are super affordable and I can guarantee you that you won’t leave their website without having something on your wishlist. Times like this I am really angry that Cape Town is going through a drought because you would fall in love with their range of beautiful bath bombs, tea bags, milks, fizzers, crystals, foam baths and salts. Before you read any further – you may want to take a looksee at their packaging over here.
So I purchased my hand and nail cream from the Dischem website but Amz Loves has their own website where they sell their goodies from and has a wider variety of products on offer. As well as jewellery and accessories. Back to the reviewing part of this post. I got a nail file with my hand and nail cream and it comes in handy especially after I cut my nails and feel like I need a little reshaping and smoothing as I am not a fan of long nails (on myself). I chose the macaroon scented cream and it really does smell exactly like macaroons. The scent is long lasting on your hands and every now and again I get a whiff of it when I am going about my day. What I love about the scent is that it is noticeable and long lasting but not headache inducing.
The consistency and texture of this hand and nail cream is more on the runnier side and I am good with that as I find that the thicker consistency in a hand cream tend to leave my hands with a greasy film afterward. The product soaks into my hands effortlessly and you don’t require much product to leave your hands feeling hydrated. I haven’t being experiencing any dry cuticles or hangnails
thank G*d since using my Cath Kidston cuticle cream so I can’t attest if this product helps with that but what I can tell you is that it is a lovely summer scent to have lingering on your hands.As I mentioned, I am a huge fan of the brand’s packaging and I love the tube that this cream comes in because when I get to the last few drops of this product then I won’t have to cut the tube open. Christmas time is coming up and I feel like this product (and some of their other products) would make stunning stocking fillers or Secret Santa gifts. Would I recommend this product to anybody? Definitely!
