Review of Julep’s Rock Star Hand Creme

Standard

I got Julep March’s maven Box unintentionally, but might as well try the product and write reviews for it, right? The box came with two nail polish colors, a lip balm, and hand lotion.

This is a review about just the lotion. I didn’t get to try the nail polish colors and the lip balm yet! (I am terribly late in trying the nail colors. I put on Laura, from February box last week.) but there will be reviews about those later.

And here is the box and the lotion.

The lotion smells nice! It kind of gives a Victoria Secret lotion feel, but nicer. My hand feels nice, too, with this lotion on. It doesn’t feel great (like they claim) but I am not sure how fast the lotion absorbs into my skin. Some of the ingredients are Shea butter, coconut oil, vitamin E and other ingredients.

Now, I do find myself comparing this lotion to Lush’s Creme Anglaise, which I am currently using. It might not be a fair comparison since the other lotion is more than double the price. But Rock Star is a okay lotion by itself.

One thing Julep marked especially is the turn-click ‘cap’ that isn’t a cap but dispenser(?) where the lotion comes out.

The idea is interesting. I think they wanted to use something that will make the act of squeezing lotion less messy. It took a while to figure out how to actually use it. It’s not bad, and it’s interesting, but I don’t think it’s an actual improvement from how other lotion bottles are…
