Come winters and I get crazy about moisturizers. Be it body lotions, lip balms, night creams, hand creams or foot creams, with winter chill on I can never get enough of them. So when I received this yummy looking Mangifera Hand and Foot Gel cream by Votre in my November Fab Bag, I could not resist opening the jar there itself and give my hands a dash of its feel!
Now weather the hand and foot gel cream from Votre really helped softening my winter chapped hands and feet or not, read review to discover. For your prior information, I am obsessed with frequent hand washing to ward off those germs and hence my hands are prone to excessive dryness and chapping especially in cold weather.
My Experience with Votre Mangifera Hand and Foot Gel Cream
This attractive looking and yummy smelling hand and foot gel cream from Votre comes in a transparent plastic jar with a silver lid. True to its name, the texture is watery with gel-like consistency. It is soft to touch and feels absolutely smooth and silky on the hands.
The formula contains an impressive list of all natural ingredients and is free from parabens, lanolin, phthalates and chemicals. Full points for that. Another feather to its cap is its unique and fresh invigorating aroma.
I somehow liked the aroma of this gel cream, which may not be liked by everyone. It has a sweet spicy aroma that smells of mangoes and herbs. While, most people like fruity and herbaceous scents but I can’t say how they would find a mix of two entirely different scents in one product! As for me, I liked the fragrance.
But I wished it pampered my hands the same way it pampers my olfactory senses. So while the cream absorbs quickly on the skin and feels really smooth to touch, it disappears with the same speed leaving the skin thirsting for moisture again!
Winter hand creams are meant to be rich but this mangifera hand and foot gel cream from Votre is ridiculously moisturizing! My skin gets progressively drier as the temperature drops and the gel cream has proved to be a big disappointment for this unusually dry and cold weather.
It is still lying on my shelf waiting for the weather to change and my skin to get out of its emollient overdrive! And as for its efficacy as a foot cream or heel repair cream, I should better not comment!!
- All natural moisturizing ingredients
- Free from chemicals
- Fresh and invigorating aroma
- Light and non-oily great for summers and those with oily skin
- Does not work on heels
- Not enough moisturizing for dry weather and dry skin and those who wash hands frequently
- Fruity herbaceous scent may not be liked by everyone.
R2B Rating: 2.5/5
Overall, Votre Mangifera Hand and Foot gel cream is a light and non-oily gel based hand cream with a sweet spicy scent. But I would have expected a little more moisture for my painfully dry hands in cold weather. And also the formula is a total disappointment as foot cream or heel repair cream.
