Antica Farmacista Hand Cream

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.

Nice Hand Cream
Sampled

I really liked how thick and creamy this was, but I wasn't a fan of the ocean sent.

Smells great!
Sampled

I loved the scent! Really, really lovely. This lotion didn't leave my hands feeling greasy or gross. I loved the texture of the lotion.

Hand Cream

I am pretty particular about my hand creams.. This one was ok, but left a lingering greasy feeling.

Nice but not my favorite scent
Sampled

I think this is a great hand cream. It left my hands very soft. My only complaint is the scent I received in my box wasn't one of my favorites. I will definitely continue to use the sample- but if I were to purchase full size, I would try a different scent.

Great hand lotion
Sampled

I received two 10mL 'tear & use' samples in the Ala Moana scent. Holy Jasmine! This fragrance is strong! I happen to like jasmine a lot and am not sensitive to strong scents. If you have a sensitive nose and don't love jasmine, I don't think this particular hand cream would necessarily be for you. It is very thick while absorbing quickly and is not greasy. My hands stay moisturized for hours, even after a hand wash. Personally, I look for a thicker cream that is not greasy feeling after application. This product hit the mark for me. I cannot speak to the other scents, but I do plan on purchasing a full size in the Ala Moana and would try another scent.

TREAT. YO. SELF.
Sampled

This product is the epitome of "TREAT YO' SELF". MMM. I almost feel like I don't deserve it. Wait. Of course I do. It smells heavenly and isn't greasy afterwards (read: you can touch things after you've finished applying it.) I tend to steer clear of hand lotions for that reason. I don't usually struggle with dry hands, but I'll keep using my samples. It's divine.

Great scent
Sampled

I got the grapefruit sample in my box. I brought it along for a flight and my boyfriend is super picky about scents LOVED how it smelled. It is a nice and rich hand cream that absorbs quickly, but I didn't really feel like it's softening properties were lasting.

Just ok
Sampled

As others mention, the packaging was poor - the one time tear off use was difficult. The scent was a bit strong for my personal tastes. Just ok.

soft smooth hands
Sampled

I had bleeding chapped hands(even got a manicure in hopes of helping). I still had bleeding cracked hands. I started using this and what a huge difference. They are now very soft and smooth. The fragarence is nice also.
