I have dry skin and in winter finding a hand cream that does the job gets tricky. I decided to buy the Ambre Mango & Carrot Seed Extra Concentrate Hand Cream as it is super concentrated and has zero water. Does it work?


PERFORMANCE: the first thing that I noticed is that this is more like a balm and that it is very thick when it comes to texture. A little goes a long way so the 60 ml bottle lasts for months also with daily use. The first time I used it I was over the moon as I woke up the net day with the softest hands. Unfortunately the effect has nor lasted long. Even thought the list of ingredients is spectacular it does not quench my super dry hands in winter.

If you have normal skin it would very likely work, but for super dry hands it does an OK job but not a great job. If you are looking for an alternative hand cream check the Skin Food by Weleda


INGREDIENTS: Mango Butter (Mangifera Indica), Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii), Carrot Seed Oil (Daucus Carota Linn), Grape Seed Oil (Vitis Vinifera Seed Oil), Sunflower Oil (Helianthus Annuus). Non-GMO Natural Vitamin E (D-alpha Tocopherol), Rosemary Antioxidant (Rosmarinus Officinalis). Pure essential oils of: Benzoin, Petitgrain (Petitgrain Bigarde), Lemon (Citrus Limonum).

Absolutely no synthetic chemical ingredients or preservatives, artificial colour or fragrance.

Fragrances from 100% raw natural high grade cold pressed essential oils.


SCENT: it is very earthy and can be a little bit annoying, especially when you first start using it.


HOW TO USE IT: get a very tiny bit of product (half a pea size) and start massaging it into the cuticles and into the fingers/back of the hand. Add a little bit more if required. A little bit goes a very long way. As it is very rich it is not advisable to use it in the office as it will leave traces on paper documents and the PC keyboard/mouse.






60ml. A simple amber glass vase with a plastic lid.

I purchased the product with my money. It was NOT sent by PR and I did not receive any money to post this review.
