Alverde Handcreme Calendula


How often to you cream your hands?

I know I should do it more than once or twice a day because I wash my hands like a hundred times during the day. (=ω=。) Okay I don't count the times but it's true that I wash them constantly...

It's no surprise that my hands look granny-like, at least I'm shocked to see the sad state they're in!( ̄〜 ̄;)It's about time to do something against it. Don't get me wrong I've been using hand creams all the time but not on a regular basis and I realized I should change this habit. I like buying hand creams, mostly drugstore brands they're cheap that's why I have a lot of them lying around without being used or half-full.

My current favorite is the Alverde Calendula hand cream which costs 1,95€ and contains 75 ml. It's a very reasonable price for an organic product keep that in mind!!! (●^Д^●)




It's moisturizing without being greasy and it gets absorbed super quickly. At first I thought that it's too rich and will take forever to get absorbed but that's not the case - like the L'Occitane shea butter hand cream...

You don't necessarily need to squeeze out so much cream like I did in the photos above. lol (☆▽☆)

I don't know how to describe the smell..... not strong but very Alverde-like. I wouldn't say I love this scent but I'm okay with it. (*・∀-)☆

In conclusion, the Alverde Calendula hand cream is a product that I do recommend for all the ladies (and gentlemen) out there who wish to keep their hands smooth and moisturized. I definitely will repurchase this!!!

oooh i've never heard or seen this brand before! I wonder if it's available in the US. My hands get dry easily since I don't have the habit of using hand cream -_- I need to start!

Yes, it is very important to use hand cream. We often neglect the hands and focus on the face, however, our hands are constantly exposed to sunlight as well....

Sorry, this brand is only available in Germany.
