Actual Product Pic:



Texture & Scent:


This hand cream feels less "solid" than the usual creams, so it glides on extra easily to cover your hands. This absorbs SUPER QUICKLY and did not leave a sticky film on your hands! Major Love!!! :D This has an absolutely beautiful scent - it definitely does not smell like watermelon or mango! I have no idea how to describe the scent other than its REALLY NICE! hahaha!! :P

Packaging:


This hand cream comes in a squeeze tube with a flip top cap. This no fuss packaging travels well so i love it! :D

The dispensing hole:



Price & Availability:
This hand cream is priced at 120 baht each, and is available at all Boots outlets in Bangkok! :D


My $0.02:

One year ago, i took a whiff of the shower gel version at the Bangkok airport outlet and fell in love with the scent. Unfortunately i did not have anymore currency with me anymore so i decided to give it a miss. And i'm heartbroken to report that they do not carry the shower gels from the Caribbean Cocktail range anymore!! *cries pitifully*

I did pick this one up (and somemore as gifts for colleagues) despite the husband nagging fact that i had a gadzillion other hand creams already, and i'm soooo glad i did!

The thing that drew me to this range is the heavenly scent!! My colleagues love the smell so much too that they already plan to repurchase and stock more bought backups of this baby! :D It also absorbs super quickly - like within a minute or two!! Its really amazing!! :D

The only thing i didn't like about this one?? It's not available here!! T_T I'll definitely stock up when i go BKK again!!

  2. Loved the review, I'll have to look out for it. I did turn my nose up at it at first because a few watermelon smells make me gag, but like you said it doesn't smell like Watermelon & mango. :)

  11. This must smell refreshing! I love Boots range of shower gels. Sometime last year, fell in love with Wild Jasmin & Cocoa shower gel & stocked up but I finished the last squeeze tube weeks back. Bummer coz I am not going back BKK in a while. But if I do, I will want a whiff of this too.
