Yes, you read it right : after a whole year (gosh, time really do fly…), reviews are back on Beauty-full Dreams ! And they’re back with a vengeance ;p Well, not quite but they’re back in a slightly revamped version that you can contribute to make even better ^-^ I’ll tell you how at the end of this post 😉
But now, on to the review :
Spring is officially over but don’t worry, you can still bask in the sweet scents of cherry blossoms, thanks to It’s Skin Mini Bebe Hand Cream 😀
This cute little tube is part of the Mini Bebe series, 9 small-sized foam cleansers, mists & hand creams sold at bargain prices.
The Hand Creams flavors are 01 Cherry Blossom, 02 Fresh Lime and 03 Vanilla Cotton. Today I’m reviewing the Cherry Blossom one but I also tried the Fresh Lime a while ago and they both share the same characteristics 🙂
It’s Skin Mini Bebe Hand Cream is a light white cream that turns into a more watery texture once spread. It’s easily absorbed by the skin and has a wonderful cherry blossom fragrance ❤ It makes your hands soft, with no sticky or greasy residue.
Sweet Talk :
“Natural moisturizing ingredients moisturize rough hands! Without sticky, moist and long-lasting in flavor.”
The Naked Truth :
Although the composition isn’t 100% natural, It’s Skin Mini Bebe Hand Cream truly contains some natural ingredients like honey, papaya, aloe and, of course, cherry blossoms that help moisturizing your skin. Here’s the full list :
“Water, Glycerin, Mineral Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, Prunus Serrulata Flower Extract, Milk Protein Extract, Honey Extract, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Allantoin, Betaine, Microcrystalline Wax, Polysorbate 60, PEG-100 Stearate, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Methylparaben, Propyl paraben, Phenoxyethanol, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance “ (credits : It’s Skin website)
As I said earlier, it’s absolutely non-sticky which is always a big plus for a hand cream. I won’t go as far as saying it keeps your hands “moist” but it does moisturize normal skins. Unfortunately, if your hands are seriously dry or chapped, it won’t be enough to repair the skin.
If you’re sensitive to smells, It’s Skin Mini Bebe Hand Cream is probably not the right product for you. The cherry blossom scent is quite strong and does last for quite a bit. Of course, it slowly fades as time goes by but it’s still noticeable. Even after washing your hands, a faint smell remains. The same goes for the Fresh Lime version and its tangy, slightly artificial lemon fragrance.
It’s Skin Mini Bebe Hand Cream 01 Cherry Blossom in a nutshell :
Nice Texture ? Yes ! Soft cream turning into watery texture 😀
Pleasant smell ? Yes, like candied cherry blossoms ^^
Comfortable ? Yes, your hands feel soft & moisturized 🙂
Effective ? Yes, unless you have very dry skin then it won’t be enough…
Good value ? Oh yeah ! $3.16 for a 30ml tube that lasts quite a while 😀
It’s Skin Mini Bebe Hand Cream 01 Cherry Blossom might not be the most nourishing/moisturizing cream ever, yet it does a pretty good job for normal to slightly dry skins. Cheap and convenient, it’s a nice hand cream to carry around in your bag. Its wonderful cherry blossom smell can either be a big plus or a major flaw though, depending on whether you like scented cosmetics or not 😉
And now my lovely readers, I request your help ! In order to get closer to your needs, I’d like ask you a few questions :
1/ in the “product in a nutshell” section, do you prefer text only or should I give stars for each category ?
2/ do you want a final, global grade or something (stars, hearts, etc.) at the end of the review ?
3/ would you like a clear “visual verdict” at the end of the review, like an icon/vector/whatever saying if you should buy it, give it a try or stay away from this product ?
I’d really appreciate if you could give me your opinion in the comment section ^^ Thank you ~
Coming up today : more Bling from Etude House 😀
