I am someone who is obsessed with washing my hands ever so often, yet I have never owned a hand cream until now. When Nykaa recently launched their range of hand creams, I thought that it was the perfect opportunity to rectify this and offer some TLC to my hands. Nykaa’s Hand and Nail Creme comes in 7 floral fragrances, and I picked the Rose and White Musk variant. Here are my thoughts on this new product.
The Nykaa Rose & White Musk Hand & Nail Creme has a soothing and warm musky rose scent. The scent is not too sickly floral and the musky undertones add a sophistication to the fragrance of roses. The cream contains many nourishing ingredients such as Avocado Oil, Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Almond Oil, which are great for keeping your hands and cuticles hydrated throughout the day. The formula is also Paraben and SLS free and the product is cruelty-free too.
The formula has a slightly whipped, creamy texture that spreads evenly on the skin. It feels slightly oily upon application but sinks into the skin within a few minutes, without leaving the hands slippery, sticky or greasy – a feeling which I dislike. The mild scent of the cream lingers on for several hours and my hands feel well-hydrated and soft all day long.
Overall, I love everything about this product, from the cute packaging to the nourishing formula and the pleasant scent. The price point of INR 275 is fairly reasonable too. This hand cream has become a handbag essential for me and I will highly recommend it to all of you too, especially those who suffer from dry and flaky skin on the hands.
The world has tried, reviewed and moved on from the Nykaa Cookie Crumble Nail Paints, but I usually wait a little before trying out buzz-creating products, so here I am after several months, finally reviewing the Nykaa Cookie Crumble Cherry Crunch Nail Paint. So if you are still looking for a review of the Nykaa Cookie Crumble Nail Paint, read on.
The basic idea behind the Nykaa Cookie Crumble Nail Paint range is that these nail paints come in pretty pastel shades with tiny black specks embedded through the formula, to resemble cookie crumbs. The range comprises of 7 shades and I picked up Cherry Crunch – a muted pink shade with the cookie flecks running throughout. Cherry Crunch is a perfect nude shade for my complexion, which makes this nail paint look pretty subtle despite the black flecks. In fact, I feel that the Cookie Crumble range, in general, is a great way to flaunt some nail art without going overboard. These nail paints can even be worn to work without looking flashy.
The formula of the nail paint is similar to that of other Nykaa cream nail paints. It is thin and runny and spreads quite easily on the nails and also dries up within a few minutes. The pigmentation is a little sheer, so you need 2-3 coats to get a fully opaque finish. The nail paint does not chip off for a good 4-5 days but the colour does begin to fade off a little in a couple of days. Also, because of the flecks, it is a little difficult to remove the product with a regular nail paint remover, but it is definitely not too hard either.
Priced at INR 199, this nail paint is a fun nail colour to have in your stash when you want something different and cute on your fingers 🙂
