Hand Cream in Brown Sugar

Fresh hand cream

Hand Cream. A few days ago I found myself downtown, it was cold, my hands were dry and my hand cream was happily sitting on the counter in my bathroom at home. Not an ideal situation. On the bright side, it gave me the perfect excuse to go to Sephora for a look around, where a salesgirl walked me through a whole range of creams. Some were too runny, some were to thick and others were much too fragrant.

She asked me if it was important that the hand cream smell nice. I was a little surprised and confused by her question so I simply said, “well I don’t want it to smell bad”. She gave me a strange look… Clearly we were not communicating very well. In about a second, however, I understood. By smelling good, she meant that the hand cream needed to smell like cake. As much as I love cake in real life, I just cannot wrap my head around creams that have such a strong, overpoweringly, sweet scent. It’s just too much for me. A nice fragrance is very important, but it has to dissipate quickly and not interfere with my carefully chosen perfume. The perfume is what I want to be remembered by.

I was thrilled when she brought me over to Fresh’s Brown Sugar Hand Cream. I already love Fresh products and I’m addicted to the lip polish and face masks, so it was pretty much a done deal. Not to mention that the heavenly scent, a little bit of brown sugar and lemonade never hurt anyone. It also left my hands feeling silky smooth for hours and hours, even after washing them. The shea butter and vitamin E absorbed quickly into my skin without leaving a greasy residue. The scent does not smell artificial and it didn’t linger on my skin. As you can probably imagine, the cream came home with me.


The question is, do you prefer a scented or unscented hand cream?

What Do I Wear


  1. Since I apply it so many times a day, I favor unscented… going to have to try the fresh lotion (love their hydrating lip balm)!

    1. Yeah, I’m usually an unscented person myself but this one is just so great!

  2. Kenya L Fashion Blog

    Going to have to check this out! I bet it smells wonderfully! Smell is SO important with my hand creams and lotions and brown sugar is one of my favorite scents! Definitely checking this out!

    xo, Kenya


    1. Oh do! It’s really nice and not very sweet. I love it.

  3. Subtle scented hand creams are fine, not overpowering ones, so I am with you 🙂


    1. Yeah, I’m glad I’m not the only one to think that way!

  4. Hope Howland (@HHDesigns)

    I’ve been so curious about Fresh products but it seems I would like them… Thanks for the review!

    1. I think you would! I’ve converted a lot of people with them…

  5. I’m with you that I look for a hand cream a little bit scented but it has to dissipate quickly not . The perfume is what I want to be remembered by. 😀
    Have a nice day lady!

    1. What’s your fave scent?!

  7. I’m with you, I don’t want a scent to over power my perfume. Lord knows I spend way too much on them! lol I like a cream that compliments it rather than over power. I don’t think I’ve tried Fresh products before…I’ll have to check them out the next time I’m in Sephora’s. But I do like the smell of lemons so I’m already liking them 🙂 And you can never have enough hand cream.

    xo, Jackie

    1. Agreed! Try Fresh, I’d love to know what you think.

    1. It’s a wonderful brand, I highly recommend it!

  8. Donah @ SweetJellyBean

    oh my! I love the sound of this already. I’m not the biggest fan of hand cream with scents, but brown sugar?? yum hahah. Thanks for sharing this, love finding products like this <3

    1. Normally I wouldn’t get it either but it’s really lovely and delicate!

  9. brown sugar sounds delicious…. have a great weekend dear

    1. It is! Thanks, you too!

  10. great post! would you like to follow eachother?

    1. Thank you!

  11. I love scented handcream! But I agree with you when it comes to the scent not overpowering you’re perfume. It should be agreeable, but not suffocating. This brown sugar hand cream sounds absolutely delectable though 🙂

    Thara from Moss & Stone

    1. I love it and then it goes away and my perfume can take center stage!

  12. I have never heard of this brand so thank you for sharing!!! The product sounds fabulous and I am sure it smells great too!!! Thanks for such a lovely post!!!

    1. Oh my pleasure. It’s such a lovely cream and it smells fantastic!

  13. Hand cream in brown sugar..! Quite interesting… I have already known the many benefits of brown sugar for skin and I have been using it as a scrubber for my whole body. But I would love to try this cream for sure!

    Geetika | geetikawalia.wordpress.com

    1. It smells like desert, I love it and of course it works very well too!

  14. This looks incredible! I like all my products scented! lol
