BirchBox Review - Taaj Hand Cream

Taaj was first introduced to me by Joliebox. I received a bottle of Taaj Makeup Remover in a box last year that I immediately fell in love with. I have since repurchased this remover twice and it has become a religious part of my evening skincare routine.

When I noticed that I had been given another Taaj product in my first ever BirchBox I was thrilled. I had a good feeling about the brand which is always a good start. A few days prior to receiving the BirchBox, I had actually been looking on shop shelves for a new hand cram that would work well on my nails and cuticles. Luckily I didn't purchase one because then I received this little diamond.

The packaging of Taaj products isn't the most amazing I've ever seen. I wouldn't pick it out on a shop shelf but I think that this hand cream looks marginally better than the makeup remover. I like the metallic writing and crisp white packaging. It's definitely a hygienic way to store the product, rather than a tub. It is also much easier to carry around in my handbag, which is currently where it resides.

It was described as smelling of Cinnamon, which it does but not on it's own. There is a general hint of soap in the background as well which creates a very pleasant aroma. Cinnamon is one of my favourite flavours and scents, so this travelled straight for goal without me even testing the cream properly. Though naturally I went on to do so...

The hand cream is a standard thickness that massages into the hands incredibly well. There is no greasy residue left behind which is one of the first things I look for. Typically this means that the cream doesn't moisturise for very long but I don't find this to be the case. It has been very cold and bitter recently with the amount of snow we've been having. But I don't find that my hands have gone dry which is partly thanks to this amazing cream. The skin on my hands actually looks baby smooth and soft which hasn't really been a noteable factor with other hand creams I've used before. It makes me wonder if Taaj do any body lotions and what they would be like.

I would definitely say this is worth a try if hand creams are your weakness. I don't tend to have very dry skin so I generally don't worry about these products too much. If my skin does get a little tight I reach for my favourite hand cream and away I go. I don't often find the need to repurchase a cream. However I know that if I did, this would be one of my top choices, along with Hand Food by Soap and Glory.

Do you have a favourite hand cream that you can't live without? Please leave your comments below.
