Hi everyone! I did a mini haul from The Face Shop right after it launched at Nykaa. It included quite a few sheet masks and a very cute Lovely Me:ex Mini Pet Hand Cream in Fruity Floral (find the haul here). I have been using it for quite some time now, and today’s post has my review of it. 🙂
Product Description :

The Face Shop Lovely Meex Mini Pet Hand Creams are available for around INR 400 on Nykaa. I haven’t checked elsewhere but must be selling on other e-commerce websites as well.
My Overview of the Product :
If you happen to catch up with my posts frequently, you might have already guessed I picked it up solely because of the packaging. It is so adorable, like a cute bear peeping out of a lavender colored tub, perhaps gesturing a “hi”? You know how I love good packaging and can go on describing forever the nook and cranny of it. 🙂 Well in The Face Shop Lovely Meex Mini Pet Hand Cream, the head detaches with the rim of the tub to reveal a soft white whipped cream consistency within the tub itself. The lid actually feels quite heavy. There is also a thick transparent sheet over the cream to protect from spillage.
The fragrance of The Face Shop Lovely Meex Mini Pet Hand Cream in Fruity Floral is just what you get from the name. It is a lovely floral fragrance with fruity hints, that I quite like. The smell is also not overbearing and stays on for around 40-45 minutes post application. The hand cream is adequately moisturizing and I need only a small quantity. It has a slight watery feel to it which is evident when I massage it in my palms. No surprises here, water is what appears first in the ingredient list. 🙂
The Face Shop Lovely Meex Mini Pet Hand Cream does make my hands smooth and nourished without feeling greasy. But I wonder if it works to show long term results. The cream feels a little superficial on the skin and tends to wash off. Consequently, I find the need for re-application after washing hands, even if it is just an hour of application. Without washing, the moisturizing effect stays on for around 3-4 hours on the palms.

The hand cream has some really nourishing ingredients like mango and shea butter as well as enriching argan oil. It also has both Japanese Cherry flower and fruit extracts, so that makes it a perfect fruity-floral combination. Apart from these, there is paraben as well and I’m not quite happy about it.
The Final Verdict :
The Face Shop Lovely Meex Mini Pet Hand Cream in Fruity Floral is a very uniquely packaged hand cream and I am glad to have it in my stash. The tub can even be used to store small, dainty jewelry pieces. It can also hold a tad thick-textured moisturizer, which would prove so useful to have on-the-go. The packaging is very travel-friendly and looks really cute. The fragrance is pretty nice as well. I only wish the hand cream itself was just as amazing as the rest of its features. It moisturizes well, but the cream doesn’t seep through the skin to last very long. I would rather prefer the Grace Cole Boutique hand cream that I talked about in this post.
Overall I think The Face Shop Lovely Meex Mini Pet Hand Cream in Fruity Floral may not be very suitable for dry hands, or even for use in the drier months. But this is a treat in summers with its refreshing fragrance, and you get to keep the pretty mini tub for the rest of your life! 🙂
