Starting with a 3ml sample of Miessence Nourishing Hand Cream RRP $20.65 for 40g.
I recently bought some adorable 3ml and 10ml cosmetic jars on eBay for the purpose of decanting samples from their sachets. I hate sachets- I realise they're more environmentally friendly than tiny tubes but I don't like throwing away excess moisturiser (they tend to dry up without an airtight lid).
Anyway, I used this hand cream over a few nights and was moderately happy with the results. The consistency is quite thick and absorbs into the skin very quickly. But because there is no oiliness to it I had to keep applying more and more- my hands were soaking it up and sort of drying out again. Of course, this makes it less economical :( My only other gripe is the scent. The website claims it has a "subtle perfume" but it was too strong and a bit unpleasant for me. Think: citrus and rose combined. Yuck.
