About Innisfree Jeju Life Perfumed Hand Creams

I recently got my hands on the Innisfree jeju Life Perfumed Hand Creams. I was able to get 3 variants, namely

  • 01 January - Guest House
  • 04 April - Small Wedding
  • 09 September - Black Tea

Each of the hand creams represents a month of the year and has a distinct fragrance. There are 12 in total, out of which I would be reviewing 3.

The hand creams are meant for daily use, and are meant to provide on-the-go moisture to your hands. I absolutely love the concept of these hand creams. Each of these scents represents a fragrance that expresses a scenery that would be able to captivate your mind during a stay on Jeju Island every month. These hand creams are loaded with a semi-wax technology that helps retain the fragrance for a longer duration as compared to other perfumed hand creams.

The products have the following ingredients. The ingredient list might seem daunting, but the function of the ingredients can be understood seeing the table below.

Price of the Product and Packaging

The product is priced at USD 5.00 for 1.01 Fl. Oz. (30ML). It comes in a plastic tube packaging. The packaging is sturdy and can be easily put inside a bag. The size is one of the advantages of this product. It is so compact, that it can even be put inside a small hand bag. The tube also maintains its shape on use, unlike some tubes which get all wrinkly as the product is used.

Fragrances

  1. 01 January - Guesthouse Laundry - It has a light powdery and citrusy fragrance.
  2. 04 April - Small Wedding Bouquet - It has a very floral fragrance.
  3. 09 September - Black Tea - It actually smells like tea but has a very sweet smell to it.

The Product

The product is a white colored rich cream. It is easily applicable on the hands, and it easily absorbs into the skin. It may seem a little sticky at first, but it absorbs quickly. Only a small quantity of the product goes a long way and keeps the hands moisturized. The product’s effects stay on for a good 3-4 hours on my hands, provided I don’t wash my hands in between of course.

The creams have mostly similar ingredients. They have distinct fragrances, and with such creative names, I like to imagine the feeling that those names may give.

How to Use The Product

Apply the cream onto clean dry hands. This can be used in the morning or at night or as per the requirement of an individual.

Pros of Jeju Life Perfumed Hand Creams:

  • The cream is extremely moisturizing, and doesn't feel greasy at all.
  • The packaging is travel friendly.
  • Many good ingredients like glycerin are present in the formula.

Cons of Jeju Life Perfumed Hand Creams:

  • I think it is kind of expensive for a 30 mL tube.
  • Some people may not get accustomed to the fragrance. That would depend from individual to individual.

Personal Opinion

The product does a really good job at moisturizing hands. The fragrances are really distinct, and personally I really liked them, especially the September one. According to me the price is significant for the quantity, but the efficacy of the product is great. I would totally recommend this product and give a rating of 4.5 out of 5.
