Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream: Review

Ok so I had some very good reason to be genuinely concerned about the well-being of my hands a few months back and well the beauty blogger in me urged me to use this to try a new hand cream instead of soaps and glory one I had been using for a while. Keeping up with my decision to try brands that I haven’t much attention to on the blog, I decided to put the Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream to test. 

Price: Rs 300 for 56 gms.

The Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream comes in a very simple no nonsense white tube packaging with a screw on cap. The tube is pretty handy and travel friendly and it’s not made of those annoying material that doesn’t allow you access to the last bit of products in the tube. 

The product is thick translucent gel with a petroleum jelly kind of texture. It almost feels like a thicker and more flowy version of Vaseline. The hand cream has a very mild floral fragrance which fades away after a few minutes of application.

Coming to my feedback about the product, after using it for a couple of days I honestly wanted to kill the inner voice that had urged me to buy this product. As I mentioned it looks like a thicker version of Vaseline so I was kind of ready for the oily feeling but I not in my wildest dream had I imagined it to be as sticky as it was. The product doesn’t blend and when it does decide to blend a little (which is like after what seems like an hour or so), it leaves behind a very disgustingly sticky and thick coating of the product. I had to wash my hands to get rid of the product because I couldn’t touch anything after applying this cream.  

I am still in shock and totally disappointed with Neutrogena. After using their amazing sunscreen, I had such high hopes from this hand cream but this one turned out to be an absolute disaster. I am going to stick to my soap and glory hand cream for the near future and I would definitely suggest you to stick to your favourite hand cream and not pick this one up until and unless you enjoy feeling your hands all oily and sticky. I you can’t find anything, use Vaseline…it’s still less oily than this one 🙁
