Too Cool For School Angel Hand Hand Cream Review

Hello, lovelies~ Remember the Cosmopolitan Indonesia magazine birthday edition with the hand cream and aloe gel bonus? I should've reviewed this hand cream a long time ago, but I kept on putting it back, until I realized there's only about a quarter left in it. So, without any more delay, here is the review~!

Unique art school-ish packaging

This is probably one of the perks of Too Cool For School since most of their packaging is art-related. It is initially packed in a separate silver box, but I lost it already. The hand cream is packaged in a silver squeeze tube that has an angel on it. Not such a big fan of the foil-like packaging because it can get squished easily in a bag, especially my bag.

It has a black twist off cap, which puts me off. I will almost always, clumsily, drop the cap when I want to screw it back on after using. Then, I'll have to dedicate an entire minute searching for the lost cap on the floor. 

Since I lost the box, I don't know what the ingredients are in this hand cream. I looked for the ingredients on Google, but they're mostly written in Korean language. I can't read Korean, so excuse that. 

Relaxing fragrance

First thing I noticed from this hand cream is the scent. Although it says shea butter, it definitely doesn't smell strongly of it compared with other Shea Butter hand creams. It has a nutty start and ends with a subtle floral note. I am a fan of this scent!

Creamy, grease-free goodness

The white cream has a slightly thick consistency that it won't fall when it's flip upside down. I use around two fingertip length or around 5 cm for both hands. 

I thought it was going to be a very rich, greasy hand cream at first. However, when I started rubbing my hands together, the cream just sinks in in a jiffy, leaving a smooth, non-greasy finish on my hands. I can immediately pick up a pen and start writing, without having my pen slip and slide. 

Long lasting moisture?

The cream is able to moisturize my hands for quite some time, around 2 hours, if I didn't wash it already. I wash my hands quite often and I will usually reapply this right after drying my hands with a towel. I put this in front of my pc, so I can reapply as often as I'd like.

Cute packaging with effective product

That is all I can describe this product. With the cute angel on the tube, the hand cream gives a smooth, silky, grease-free finish that is able to moisturize my hands for quite some time. I'd say that this is worth to be repurchased, but I think I'd sniff out their other scents. I'm eyeing the Moringa scent. 

What do you think of this hand cream?
Is it a no go or a heck yeah?
