Birchbox Breakdown

We’ve been caught more than a few times with our noses in a product. Fragrance is that important, which is why we put our trust in Antica Farmacista (they introduced the scented reed diffuser to the U.S. 10 years ago!). With a commitment to the finest essential oils and natural ingredients, we’ve already found our signature scents in these seven soothing, rich hand creams. And with fragrances like Bergamot & Ocean Aria, we dare you to stop at just one.

How it Works

Nourishing ingredients like shea butter, vitamin E, and almond oil soothe and hydrate for instant relief. Ala Moana is an intoxicating floral with jasmine and gardenia, plus lush green notes. Coriander, Lotus & Cucumber has a fresh, green scent, with spicy notes of coriander. Bergamot & Ocean Aria features saltwater, jasmine, and lavender with crisp bergamot and white musk. Grapefruit is clean, fresh, and invigorating. For a twist on citrus with notes of lemon, white florals, and cedarwood, choose Lemon, Verbena & Cedar. Prosecco features top notes of citrus with apricot, passionfruit, and sugared black currant. Orange Blossom, Lilac & Jasmine is bright and floral with subtle hints of vanilla musk.

How to Use

Smooth onto hands whenever you need a boost of hydration. The flip-cap top makes it easy to apply on the go.

I just don't like how it smells

I should know by now that for some things, it's best to sniff in person! While the texture & lightness of this product are great, I get a headache from the scent. But I am _very_ sensitive to scents, so..........your mileage may vary significantly!

Bergamot and Ocean Aria
Purchased

Fabulous hand cream. Not greasy or heavy. I got the Bergamot which is heavenly and one of my favorite scents.

Softens and smells great
Purchased

I received this as a sample, then ordered a full size. The fragrance is not overpowering, but soft, and the moisturizing power is great. My hands don't feel dry after applying or slippery, they just feel soft and moisturized.

I liked this very much.

I use a lot of hand creams and this one was very nice. Not normally the fragrance I would have chosen, but I do like the Lemon Verbena smell. I have pets that think I smell like a snack if I wear anything that smells food like. I had lots of approval from the guinea pigs. hahaha

Loved it!

I loved the fragrance and moisture in this lotion. I wish the sample was bigger. I will be purchasing in the near future.

Nice but a little strong scented.

Smells nice but a little strong. Moisturized my dry hands. I can't speak to the long term use but it worked for the week that I used it.

Smell nice

This hand cream is nice and makes my hands feel great. It is a nice heavy cream and works well on winter hands.

Amazing!

I loved this hand cream! A little bit goes a long way, and it leaves your hands feeling soft for a very long time! It is one of the few I've tried that actually works during the winter months when I have dry skin. Because of the price point I will probably just use this product in the winter when I need it most.

Bergamot Bleh

I love the feel and absorption of this lotion and would buy it ....... If I knew what a good scent would be. Unfortunately, I received the Bergamot and Ocean Aria. Upon putting it on, I felt as if I were whisked away to a nursing home or an elderly woman's bedroom. I even applied it one day when my friend was over and with out any prompting, she said " that lotion smells like old lady". I so wish I knew what the other scents are like because I love the product but the smell is unbearable.

Love this!!!

I love the texture, smell and moisturizing qualities. Win, win, win!!! My sample was Ala Moana, which is a lovely scent. I purchased a full size as soon as my samples ran out. Expensive, yes, but worth it to me!
