Roger And Gallet Fleur De Figuier Hand And Nail Cream

Hello Lovelies

I haven't worn hand cream regularly for years, in my nursing days I always had a small tube in my tunic pocket and you could find bottles of it all over the staff room because constant hand washing, wearing latex gloves and using alcohol hand gel really took it's toll on my hands and they were so dry, these days I rub what's left of my facial moisturiser into my hands each morning and evening and thats as far as me applying "hand cream" goes.

A couple of days before Christmas I received a lovely little gift set from Roger & Gallet, the set contained a full size (30ml) hand and nail balm in the fragrance Fleur Figuier and also a fragrance sample (1.5ml) in the same scent, I haven't ever tried anything from the brand so I was really eager to try both the hand and nail balm and the fragrance. 

The set came in a lovely little red triangular shaped box, with the Roger & Gallet logo on, and looked perfect for Christmas and was nicely sealed and I immediately thought what a nice little gift it made.

Once inside there was a full size (30ml) hand and nail balm and a sample of fragrance (1.5ml), I liked that the fragrance sample had a spray applicator rather than one of the stopper type lids, I much prefer the spray bottles with a sample fragrance.

The packaging of the hand and nail balm is possibly the prettiest hand and nail cream packaging I have ever seen, it is a gorgeous peach coloured tube with gold and green detail and has a lovely little twist off lid in a coral/orange shade, it is ever so pretty.

My Thoughts

The first time I used the hand and nail balm I noticed the scent immediately, it has quite a strong scent but it is a really lovely scent and although it is a strong scent it does settle down and leaves a lovely subtle scent that stays on the hands for a while. 

The hand and nail balm has a lovely consistency and isn't too thick, it massages into my skin well, sinks into the skin nicely and doesn't leave any kind of residue or sticky feeling, this is something I love about the hand and nail balm because hand creams I have used in the past have taken a while to sink into my skin and then left a greasy residue on my hands for a while after application but this doesn't.

My hands are left feeling extremely soft immediately after massaging the balm into my skin, the scent is a lovely relaxing scent that settles into a nice subtle scent, my hands feel lovely and soft for hours after applying the balm and I have been using it daily which I never thought I would do, my daughters have both also been applying the hand and nail balm and they wouldn't ever normally use one but they both love how soft their hands feel and my eldest who is a makeup artist is going to buy one of the hand and nail balms to keep in her brush belt because she uses a lot of hand sanitiser and washes her hands a lot and she likes the thought of her hands smelling nice when she's applying makeup to her clients. 

I am very impressed with the Roger & Gallet hand and nail balm, my hands feel lovely after using it and they smell incredible too, I have been using it daily since receiving it and I have noticed such a difference in the way my hands feel and my nails feel stronger too which is an added bonus. The balm is extremely hydrating and leaves my hands feeling soft and hydrated for hours, I wish I'd had this back in my nursing days, it would have been amazing. When I first received the hand and nail balm, I instantly loved the packaging but I didn't ever think I could be blown away by a hand and nail balm, but I really am, it's an incredible product. 

The sample of scent I received in the box with the hand and nail cream has the same stunning fragrance as the hand and nail balm and the scent lasts for such a long time when I wear it, I have received so many compliments on it and it is definitely something I would consider buying in the full size, I'm pleased the scent was included, it is a nice way to try the scent and there was enough product in the sample for me to use it around 5 times before running out. 

If you would like to try the Roger & Gallet Fleur De Figuier hand and nail balm, the set I received is on sale at the moment on the Feel Unique website here priced at £3.60 (was £6.00) or if you would just like to buy the hand and nail balm on it's own, you can also find that on the Feel Unique website here priced at £6.00. 

Have you tried this hand and nail balm? Or the scent? And can you recommend any of the other Roger & Gallet fragrances? Let me know in the comments below.
