Sephora Smiling Skincare – Coral

Sephora has recently overhauled its skincare range and will soon be releasing a new collection that comes in different colour categories; Green, Blue, Pink, andPurple.
The range will include moisturizers, cleansers, eye-makeup removers, masks, exfoliators and an anti-aging line. There is also a Coral range for the body.
I have never used Sephora skincare before, although my friend Anita swears by a lot of their products and loves the Bath & Body range. She nearly had to be physically removed from the store in Singapore when she visited me, such was the excitement, so I was quite optimistic to try some of their stuff.
I got sent something from each line (except the Purple anti-aging line as they thought I was too young and fabulous, right??). I’m not going to review them all in one post as we’d be here all day so I’ll go through it by colour range. First up is Coral – Body.

From this range I got the Nourishing Hand Cream. It comes in a cute little tube, inside an orange bag that says “Lusty Pleasure” on the front, love it!
The retail price is 3BD (27 Dirhams/$8USD) for 50 ml of product which is seriously bargainous.

The cream itself has a flowery perfumed scent to it. It’s nice and light, goes on easily and most importantly, doesn’t leave an oily film after application. This is a big plus for me as I HATE that slimy feeling you get with some hand creams.
One thing I noticed in particular, is that its quite long lasting. I applied it this morning, and now nearly 4 hours later my hands still feel soft and moisturized. They also smell really good, but it might look a bit odd if you go around sniffing your hands…

    >ahahaha, the main reason I only ever use neutral-scented handcreams during the daytime is because I DO go around sniffing my hands if they smell lovely and flowery!
