Review: Chanel Hand Cream. La Creme Main.

Hold up! Chanel came up with a hand cream the shape of an egg. Well, not really. A flattened egg. Like an ergonomic wireless mouse. Yeah, that’s about right. It took me a while to figure out how to open this edgeless seamless egg. Ah, so you just pop up the cap and then….

… where does the cream come out from? Hahaha! It did take me another while… then AHA!! I saw a prick of a tiny hole right here

So you actually just squeeze the bugger. You sneaky little thing. I know I’m not the only one who found this ‘device’ tricky so I know I’m not dumb. And it’s not Lily proof. The Chanel hand cream is fun and comfortable to hold. I’m just easily excited like a kid. It’s something I don’t have! You can easily pop it in your little handbag or even in your clutch but it does play hide and seek with you, so just remember where you chucked it.

The cream is subtly scented which I appreciate. The obnoxious perfume from some hand creams choke me sometimes. The most important thing is that it keeps my dry hands smooth and comfortable. I don’t have super dry hands, but every time I’m in the car, my hands will suddenly feel like sand paper. Yucks! Immediately after applying, my hands look photoshopped smooth. Not kidding. It has a creamy texture that absorbs quickly, unlike the watery ones that you get sometimes, or the creamy ones that stay greasy.

Chanel gives you what you want in a good hand cream, and I wouldn’t expect less, given the price (RM225). LOL! Then again, you shouldn’t gasp too quickly because I know a lot of you actually buy your hand cream from La Mer!!

If you love a good hand cream and don’t mind a little splurge, then I say, go for it. It is also a conversation starter when you pull it out. I always get oohs and aahs and the squeaky “so cute!” from some people. And some of my friends told me they’d go to Chanel to buy it. I don’t know if they did, but it just shows this Chanel hand cream has its appeal. Don’t you think? Or do you find this just gimmicky and prefer your good old trusty hand cream you’ve used for years? Personally, I always change up my hand creams, because I just want to try what’s out there. Ah, the little frivolous thrills of life 🙂

  • I couldn’t bring myself to buy a crazy expensive hand cream especially one from Chanel! That said, the packaging really is super cute….maybe I’ll take a peek at how much it costs in CAD. LOL!

      Hahaha same. I’m still looking for one that’s good for the hands and the wallet. Something that’s easily attainable so I can grab it whenever I want. Still looking…

  • Haqhahaha I had the same noob moment when I was trying to figure out how to get the cream out… I even considered if it needed to be twisted around somewhere… or poked? ROFL! Just squeeze the bugger! It’s a great one indeed, I never even carried a handcream in my purse until this one came along. But then some people immediately told me it’s rip-off from EOS…. :'(

      I have not tried anything from EOS before, but oh well, Chanel is Chanel 😉
      Once it’s used up, I’ll need a more wallet friendly hand cream. I think I’ll go back to the L’Occitane shea butter that I really like.
