I received this hand cream in my Julep Trick or Treat Mystery Box recently, and I am really impressed with the quality! I love Julep's polishes but am not as familiar with their beauty and skincare products, so I was really happy to give this a try! I love the smell of this cream. It's a difficult scent to describe, but it's definitely a pleasant one -- I really like it! It's a clean smell -- not medicinal, but not quite fruity either... I think I'd probably put it in the flowery category. Either way, it's a light smell but not overpowering, which I'm happy about. The cream is thicker in texture, but it blends really nicely into the skin. It feels a little greasy when you first apply it, but then it quickly absorbs into the skin and the greasiness goes away. It's very moisturizing so I think it'll be great for the quickly-approaching Canadian winter, and as a result, I'm looking forward to testing it out when the weather gets colder. I also love that it's made from some natural ingredients. According to Julep's website, the formula for this cream includes rosehip seed oil (maybe that's what I smell!), green coffee bean oil, and malvaceae lipid extract, which is lovely. Since I received this product from the mystery box, I didn't purchase it at it's regular price. Based on the quality of it, I would want to repurchase it because it is so high end, but at the same time, $20.00 is steep for me for a 71g container of hand cream. However, I am willing to pay more for cruelty free products (which this is -- yay!) so I'd have to think about it.
