Birchbox Breakdown

These fresh-scented hand cremes from Illume have us thinking spring year-round. The brightly colored tubes are cheery enough to chase away even the worst of the winter blahs, and the five scents—Desert Tulip, Anemone, Cactus Verde, Coconut Milk Mango, and Thai Lily—are perfect for cold and warm weather alike. Plus, the formulas are paraben-free, never tested on animals, and contain moisturizing natural oils to soften skin.

How it Works

Illume’s hand creams are rich in natural oils, such as coconut, jojoba, avocado, and vitamin E, as well as cocoa and mango butters. The ingredients work together to soothe and moisturize dry skin. As for the fragrances, Desert Tulip is a bright blend of red tulip, raspberry, mandarin, and musk, while Anemone is a fruity combination of citrus, apple, clove, and patchouli. Cactus Verde is an infusion of cassis, pink sea salt, and wild geranium accented by avocado, and Coconut Milk Mango is just what it sounds like: a tropical blend of fresh coconut milk and mango. And last but certainly not least is Thai Lily, a mix of Brazilian teak and Asiatic lily with exotic citrus notes like Bali mango, blood orange, and white nectarine.

Keep a tube handy at your desk, and apply whenever hands feel dry.

I couldn't stand the smell. I was expecting something pleasant, but it was awful. Lower than mediocre moisturizing too.

I love the coconut milk mango scent! Nice and light and not overpowering. The creme isn't greasy and it keeps my hands soft.

Nice scent
Sampled

The scent is very nice. I didn't care for the design on the packaging. And the package sample itself was not meant for long term. I wish the dispenser had been different.

I have the Anemone creme and I just can't get enough! It is such a pleasant smell. It is also such a good moisturizer. Very light but still very moisturizing.

Great product, one major flaw

I bought this lotion in the Coconut Milk Mango scent at the SoHo store. I SO wanted to love this product, and I SO wanted it to be deserving of five stars. The scent is AH-mazing! The texture is delicious... light and milky, but still manages to moisturize fantastically. The packaging is whimsical and fun. Also, this brand is never tested on animals (huge bonus points), the ingredients are 100% natural, and the lotion is paraben-free. As I'm purchasing this, I'm thinking to myself -- this is SO going to be my new signature scent.

BUT... the major drawback for me, and the reason I gave it only three stars --

The scent simply does not last. I love a not-overpowering scent that lingers throughout the day, and only every once in a while someone is close enough to you to catch a subtle whiff of your yummy scent. Well, that simply will not happen with this lotion, except maybe within the first thirty minutes to an hour of applying it. Even with the coordinating perfume layered on top of it, the fragrance still did not last. I asked my boyfriend if he liked my new scent, and even after pointing it out, he still could not smell it on me. SUCH a bummer... I was really hoping this would be my new go-to product for moisture and fragrance. Alas, the hunt continues...

Great hand creme, but a bit too scented
Sampled

I really love the texture and consistency of this creme. a little goes a long way and you feel your skin just soaking up the rich moisture. however, it's a bit too strong on the scented side. every time i used it, my boyfriend wrinkled his nose and asked, "new perfume?" I prefer something a little more subtle.
