The winter season brings with itself festivities, comfy sweaters, and hot chocolate, which we all look forward to. But for most of us, it also brings with itself dry skin. So does the summer season.
Since our hands are always exposed and come in contact with water more than any other part of our bodies, they tend to lose moisture the fastest. Dry hands, if not taken care of, can lead to flaky skin and lots of discomforts. They are also more prone to paper cuts.
Therefore, hand cream is something you should always have in your bag. Today, I’m going to review The Face Shop Lovely Meex Mini Hand Cream in the variant White Floral.
About the Product: An adorable hand cream, this beauty goodie by Faceshop promises supple and pretty hands. It provides high moisture, zero stickiness, and Excellent absorbance. This cream is of a light texture but contains high moisture, high nutrition that cares for hands keeping them soft and silky. Here’s to adorable hands!

My Experience with The Face Shop Lovely Meex Mini Hand Cream – White Floral
The cream comes packed in a lovely little tub, which is adorable beyond words. It’s smaller than the palm of my hand and is rose pink in color. The lid of the tub is shaped like a kitten’s head, so when you close it, it looks like the kitten is peaking from the tub. I really like the detailing on the tub. The plastic is not cheap or low quality. The print is of high quality too, and your kitten will retain its cute features for a long time. It is a delight to look at!
You get 30 ml of product in the tub. It has a very pleasing floral fragrance, with notes of jasmine and white musk. Other variants of this cream are Baby Powder and Fruity Floral.
The fragrance is very delicate and feminine. It will last for 2-3 hours and will not give you a headache, but will actually be pleasing to your nose because it is neither too strong and nor too mild.
The cream itself is extremely lightweight. It will not make your hands greasy, sticky or sweaty, and absorbs almost instantly upon application.
The ingredients of the cream include mango seed butter, shea butter, and argan oil, all of which are rich in moisture and very good for the skin. However, it is not extremely moisturizing. My hands are not very dry, and it suits my skin perfectly. If you’re someone whose hands tend to get extremely dry or flaky, this cream might not be the best option for you. It is not richly moisturizing.
Because the size of the tub is so small, it is very travel-friendly. You can easily carry it in your purse to work or vacation, and the best part is that it’ll cheer you up whenever you apply it. However, for this price point, the small size of the product is also a drawback. If you use it multiple times every single day, it will last you barely over a month. You can refill the tub with another cream of your choice, but I still think that for Rs. 430 you should get more product or at least a cream that is richly moisturizing.
The Face Shop products are available online on Nykaa, Myntra, and Amazon, and the brand often has good discounts you should keep an eye on. Offline, The Face Shop also has limited outlets in major cities and is available in Nykaa stores, which means that you can check out the product before you buy it.

The Face Shop Lovely Meex Mini Hand Cream
Although a bit overpriced and not super moisturizing, I do recommend that you try this out at least once just because it’s a one of a kind product. You can refill it with Vaseline once you run out of the cream, and the high-quality tub won’t break for a long time. It smells fantastic, is non-sticky, and will look very adorable on your vanity. If you have extremely dry hands, however, I would suggest that you don’t invest in it.
