Welcome back to IBeautySpy! Today am going to review a new product from Juicy Chemistry. I have already reviewed Juicy Chemistry Carrot Skin Rehab Soap here. Its one of my favorite handmade soaps of all time. Do check out the post to know more about the product as well as the brand. When I created a Beauty Wishlist for 2017, I had included Juicy Chemistry as one of the brands I wanted to try out. Its almost the end of the year and its now that I got an opportunity to try more of their products. I got myself their hand & foot cream, lip balm and body butter when they were on a 25% discount sale. So today am going to review the Juicy Chemistry Kokum & Myrrh Butter Intense Nourishing Hand & Foot Cream. Let’s get started right away!
Give your hands and feet the deserved attention with this invigorating cream. The healing and rejuvenating properties of coffee, and anti-oxidant rich kokum makes this cream most desired amongst users. Star ingredient kokum butter is jam-packed with essential fatty acids and creates a cocoon around your skin. A touch of lavender oil in this cream relaxes you and myrrh especially is suited for dry, cracked and chapped hands & feet. All these combine to leave your footsies soft and cared for.
Mango butter, Kokum butter, Jojoba oil, Lavender essential oil, Peppermint essential oil, Myrrh essential oil, Avocado oil, Vitamin E, Coffee infused almond oil, Beeswax
Rs.450 for 25g and Rs.700 for 50g
Juicy Chemistry brand give a lot of attention to their packaging. The tub had an inner foil to prevent spillage of the product. And additionally there was a separate white lid that came in my parcel which we can use to protect the tub once we tear open the inner foil. The logo and the colors on the outside also look classy.
Juicy Chemistry Kokum & Myrrh Butter Intense Nourishing Hand & Foot Cream looks dark brown in color and has a nearly solid texture. As its cold here in Bangalore, the cream solidifies due to the presence of oils and butters. Whereas when I take it to Chennai, it melts into a cream consistency. The scent is absolutely amazing, the best scent among all hand, foot creams I have tried. Its not an artificial scent as no chemicals have been added in it. Its strong scent of various essential oils which is very fresh, calming and relaxing. One can feel that a lot of pure, natural oils must have been used in this product to give such a scent.
Juicy Chemistry Kokum & Myrrh Butter Intense Nourishing Hand & Foot Cream, though it has a solid texture, it melts so quickly on coming in contact with the skin. The butter turns into an oil once you start massaging on your hands. The oil forms a protective barrier on your hands and prevent moisture loss. If you are looking for a quick absorbing, non-oily hand, foot cream, then this is not for you. As the name says, it is an intense nourishing hand and foot cream.
When I started using this cream, my hands were very very dry, itching and looked aging. My foot also was in same condition. The climate here in Bangalore has become cold and also since I work in an A/C office, I need an intense nourishing cream which was why I picked this one from Juicy Chemistry. When I used it for 1-3 times, I couldn’t notice any changes. I had to keep reapplying often. Then after 2 weeks of using it regularly, I could see real changes. My hands and feet were no more thirsty for moisture. They were well nourished, moisturized, soft and supple. It also relaxes my feet after a tiring day and also heals cracked heels. Thanks to Juicy Chemistry for such a wonderful product!
Since it is made up of 100% natural ingredients, you can use this safely without any fear. Only thing is, since its totally natural product, you need to use it atleast 2 weeks to see the results. Unlike petroleum jelly based products which simply sit on top of your skin, this penetrates deeper into the skin to repair and provide nourishment. As you keep applying everyday, you will start feeling only lesser quantity is needed as the internal cells have already been nourished. Think of your skin like a dry sponge that keeps soaking up water until it is full.
The ingredients list is simply marvellous. All luxurious butters, oils, essential oils and beeswax! I don’t have to detail about the goodness of mango butter, kokum butter, avocado oil and almond oil. If you are wondering what Myrrh is, it is a natural gum or resin extracted from a number of small, thorny Myrrh trees. It is great for anti-aging, skin rejuvenation and healing of wounds. The product contains no water, so there are no preservatives either.
The price may seem a little steep, but considering the quality of the product, I would say its totally worth it. Also only little quantity needed each time since its a thick butter, so one tub will last a long time.
Does it satisfy all its claims?
Yes, it satisfies all its claims.

Overall, Juicy Chemistry Kokum & Myrrh Butter Intense Nourishing Hand & Foot Cream is one of the best hand and foot creams I have ever used. If you are suffering from dry, chapped hands and feet this winters, definitely give this a try. If you wish to try a lighter hand and foot cream, they also have Juicy Chemistry Peppermint & Tea Tree Hand and Foot Cream.
