The Battle of Hand Creams (H2O+, The Face Shop, Marks & Spencer)

Feb 18, 2016 | Beauty & Fashion | 27 comments

As I have mentioned in my H20+ Targeted Care Hand and Nail Cream review, my hands are experiencing dryness which tends to get itchy and resulted in some sort of skin asthma. Because of this, I needed something that hydrates my skin all the time. Last Christmas, I received two hand creams and I thought of why not do a comparison review for the three hand creams that I currently have. 

And they are:

H20+ Targeted Care Hand and Nail Cream,
The Face Shop Cherry Blossom Daily Perfumed Hand Cream, and
Marks & Spencer Floral Collection Rose Moisturising Hand and Nail Cream
Design-wise, they all look nice and pretty but I choose TFS Cherry Blossom as my favorite. I love its cherry blossom design and the twist off cap is unique from other hand creams. 
H20+ for 60ml 390php
The Face Shop 270php for 30ml (6usd from the website)
Marks & Spencer for 100ml – this comes with a hand wash roughly 700php/set (15usd)


Luckily, they are all available locally, you can find H2o+ at or you can visit their stand at SM Department Store (SM North Edsa), not sure though to other SM Mall branches. The Face Shop and Marks & Spencer stores are almost in every leading malls in the country.  
L-R H20+ Targeted Care Hand and Nail Cream, The Face Shop Cherry Blossom Daily Perfumed Hand Cream, Marks & Spencer Floral Collection Rose Moisturising Hand and Nail Cream
They almost have the same consistency that is lightweight and is easily absorbed that makes my skin soft and supple.

H20+ has this unique organic scent that uplifts your mood every time you use it. The smell brings you to a “mini spa” while lathering it to your skin. The Face Shop, on the other hand, has this sweet floral scent like a body lotion from The Body Works. It has a very light scent which is perfect for everyday use. Lastly, you will definitely smell the rose in Marks & Spencer Floral Collection.
From the three, the unique scent of H20+ stays longer on the skin. 
To wrap it up, if you want something unique and has a refreshing scent I definitely recommend H20+ Targeted Care Hand and Nail Cream but I don’t see myself using it on a daily basis and that is where The Face Shop Cherry Blossom Daily Perfumed Hand Cream comes in as an alternative. I’m not really a fan of roses so Mark and Spencer is my least favorite. 

So what’s your favorite hand cream?

    Like you, I'm not fond of roses or any flower scent so I will also choose H20.

    I love thick hand creams that smell good. Scent is very important to me.

  4. Nini Perez

    I love hand creams from The Body Shop! 🙂 but H2O+ seems worth a try as I'm not into flowery scents.

    I think the H20 has the best value in this case since it lasts longer on the skin. But the other two are nice as well. Especially with the scents. I don't really use hand lotions that often but it would be nice to try one of these!

    Not really into hand cream but I guess I need one. I'm doing most of the house chores which makes my hands too veiny.

  13. Shabby Chic Boho

    I love any type of scents so I would love to try all of these. However, I'm leaning more towards the H20 because it's sounding really great.

  14. ana de jesus

    I love hand cream and you have just reminded me that I need to get more!

  15. Michelle Mink

    i like a refreshing scent which would make the h20 a winner for me. i am very scent sensitive so i have to picky about which ones i get

  16. Katarzyna Wójcik

    They all look pretty neat 🙂 I'm on the opposite end when it comes to roses – I love the smell, so I think I'll try Marks & Spencer one, especially that we've got their stores where I live.

  17. Esme Sy

    I have the H2O hand cream and I love it. What a great review.

  18. Marielle Altenor

    I have very dry hands from the constant hand washing because of the baby. I like hand creams that contains a lot of moisturizer in them.

  19. debdenny

    Love your comparison review. The H20 sounds great and looks nice.

  20. LadyAnne Louise Barrun

    Actually I don't have a hand cream and I think my hands need it. Thanks for the review. This will help me to choose what best product I should buy.

  21. Ayesha Heart

    Hand creams are always present in my bag 🙂 I'd love to try the H2o

  22. ConciergeLibrarian

    Thanks for the reminder…I have not been paying enough attention to my hands at all.

  23. Tetcha

    I'm so low maintenance; my body lotions serves as my hand lotion, too, but I'd love to try the H20+ Targeted Care Hand and Nail Cream. — Maria Teresa Figuerres
