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.

Smells great, works pretty well
Sampled

This is among the better hand creams and the smell is really amazing. I ended up leaving this sample in my daughter's room for nightly story time when my hands inevitably felt dry. This lasted a long time and felt really good.

Can't get enough!
Sampled

I received this in one of my first boxes, and I am still using it! I only use it when my hands are at their worst because it works so well, but I wish I could use it more often because it smells so good! That is why I will order more! It soaks in fast, smells delightful, and cures my super dry hands.

would buy a sample set of all fragrances

Maybe because the writing on the package was Italian and I love that language, but I loved the rich cream that I got in my mystery box. I may have to buy this in the future if they make a tiny sample gift pack with all the fragrances. I want to try them all.

Smells wonderful!

I received a sample of this in my mystery bonus samples with my full-size purchase. The scent I received was the Bergamot and Ocean Aria. The scent is light, floral, and fresh. I can't get enough of it. The lotion stays on through a hand washing or two. I am going to purchase the full size with my next order and may try a second fragrance!

Amazing.

This hand cream is very hydrating and has long lasting effects. I had the Ocean Aria scent and it smelled amazing.

Great lotion, but not the scent

I really loved the texture and quality of this, just not smell. I recieved Ala Moana as a sample and was just not feeling the great-aunt smell. I'll have to try the other scents, though, because I loved the lotion itself.

Smells good but oily

The sent is very nice, it is a little citrusy. But, I did find that it might my hands quite greasy until it absorbed after a couple of minutes.

It's nice

I received it for free in my mystery box. It's not something I would purchase but glad I got to try. Just to much of a perfume smell for me.

Antica Farmacista Hand Cream REVIEW

I got this as a mystery sample in one of my orders from Birchbox. My first impression was that the packaging was super cute. Very dainty and lovely. Secondly, after one use my hands smelled and felt lovely. The scent is really nice and subtle. I'm not sure if it's because I haven't used hand cream in a long time, but this product really helped my dry and chapped skin feel more hydrated and soft. I might be buying the full size version of this in the future.
