Dove India recently launched their Coconut Oil And Almond Milk Hand Creme. After using it daily for more than a week now, I wanted to share my thoughts with you all. So let’s get started with the review and see how did it fare out for me. Keep reading to find out more…
What The Brand Claims: Treat your hands with Dove Restoring Ritual Hand Creme, inspired by rituals from India. This super-rich formula infused with Coconut Oil and Almond Milk deeply moisturizes and softens your hands, while its indulgent creamy fragrance comforts your senses. And the result? No more dry hands. Restored extra soft skin.
Packaging: The hand cream comes in a simple yet beautiful packaging. The tube is made of somewhat thin plastic and has a flip-top cap. It shuts tightly with a click and is secure to carry around. All the important information such as date of manufacturing, date of expiry, ingredient list, MRP and net product weight is clearly mentioned. I completely loved the packaging! It’s attractive, convenient-to-use as well as travel friendly.
My Experience With The Product: Dove Nourishing Secrets Hand Creme, Coconut Oil And Almond Milk is white in color and has a slightly thick, yet incredibly smooth formula. It reminds me of the Dove Nourishing Secrets Invigorating Ritual Body Lotion and unfortunately, yet again, I faced the same issue! As soon as you spread the product on the hands, it takes a couple of minutes to get absorbed properly. Even then, it leaves some sort of a sticky layer behind, that I just don’t like. Anyways, it hydrates the hands and makes them soft and smooth.
I feel this hand cream is just an average product to keep the hands hydrated, but it won’t do much to deeply nourish or heal very dry or flaky hands. Coming to the fragrance, it has a prominent Coconut scent that lingers on for quite some time and can be overpowering for sensitive noses. The product retails for Rs 299 for 50 gm and can be easily found online as well as in stores.

Do I Recommend This? Dove Coconut Oil And Almond Milk Hand Creme has an incredibly smooth texture, but is not the easiest to work with. It takes time to blend into the skin and even then, leaves some sort of sticky feel behind, that I just don’t like. Even though it makes the hands soft and hydrated, it does not provide any deep nourishment at all. It has a prominent Coconut scent, that can be overpowering for sensitive noses.
All in all, this is just an average hand cream. I am not impressed and would not repurchase it!
Till next time,
