I have to confess that Clinique isn't the first brand to spring to mind when considering the purchase of a new hand cream but I've recently been trialling Deep Comfort Hand and Cuticle Cream from the brand and wanted to share my thoughts.
I liked the tube packaging which is functional and a travel friendly 75ml. The design is in keeping with Clinique's relatively minimalist branding. The cream itself has a pastel lemon yellow colour which is visible through the transparent tube.
As is the case with Clinique products, Deep Comfort Hand and Cuticle Cream is fragrance free and whilst some may feel that this diminishes the indulgence factor, I liked that there was no scent interaction with my perfume.
Clinique Deep Comfort Hand and Cuticle Cream is a true cream and the relatively thick texture means that a little goes a long way, which helped me to justify the high price tag of £18 for 75ml. Whilst I found it to be easily absorbed, I noticed some slight residue on the skin. It didn't feel greasy but I felt as though there was a protective barrier on my skin, helping to lock in moisture.
Overall, I liked Clinique Deep Comfort Hand and Cuticle Cream and would recommend checking it out.
