A few weeks back I posted about Beauty Habit’s 25% off promotion, which included the much-coveted Disney for Paul & Joe collection, which had previously only been available in Japan. While I wanted pretty much one of everything, I just couldn’t justify the additional purchases since Saks F&F and Sephora F&F were around the same time; but I couldn’t not get anything since I love Disney so picked up this hand cream as a small indulgence.

The packaging for this Protective Hand Cream is soooo darling! The peach and orange flower scented light hand cream comes packaged in a pale pink opalescent tube featuring the much loved Lady of Lady and the Tramp and makes it so much easier for me to remember to apply hand cream periodically throughout the day.

LOVE: I love the super-light, almost gel-like consistency of this hand treatment, especially because it’s quick to dry and doesn’t leave behind any sticky or tacky residue. Then again my hands don’t get all that dry so I don’t need a heavy-duty treatment. I also really love the fact that this has a light SPF, so I feel good that my hands are at least somewhat protected from environmental factors. And of course the adorable packaging!

NOT SO MUCH: While this hand cream worked out well for me, if you suffer from severely dry hands this just won’t cut it. It leaves my hands feeling super soft and happy, but based on consistency alone I can tell that for really dry winter hands you’ll need something more. Also, the peach/orange flower scent, while light, is pretty artificial and chemically smelling. Now I actually like this as it smells like orange soda (think Sunkist) to me, but I know several people that aren’t too fond of it.

A blob of hand cream. See how thin the consistency is? This was round at some point but it’s too watery/gel-like to hold its shape.

Spread around a little. Love how light this feels while still being moisturizing.
