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

 
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
 
Packaging
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. 
 
Price
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)

Availability

Luckily, they are all available locally, you can find H2o+ at Glamourbox.ph 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.

Formulation
They almost have the same consistency that is lightweight and is easily absorbed that makes my skin soft and supple.

Scent
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?

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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
