Sasy n Savy Hand Cream in Orchid from Paradise, Jasmine - review


We received this product in our December 2015 Lust Have It Women's Boxes (reviewed here). 

I wasn't thrilled to see it because I have a back-log of hand creams, plus I had a feeling that it wasn't going to be very good. And indeed it's not good. It's been sent straight to the body cream department so I can get rid of it by using it on my legs, because life's too short to use bad products.

Sasy n Savy claims/product details:
  • A luxury, protective hand cream that deeply nourishes and hydrates your skin
  • For hard-working hands 
  • Leaves skin feeling soft and supple
  • RRP $15 - $20 AUD for 40ml*

*Note: I couldn't find this product on Sasy n Savy's website, so the above info is taken from the LHI description card that came with the box, and it may be incomplete.


I don't like this hand cream at all.

It's a white cream that smells strongly of jasmine. I find the scent fake, overpowering and off-putting, and my husband doesn't like it either. He uses hand cream even more than I do, so I often use him as a back-up tester for products like this, and his face when he tested it said it all: he recoiled and looked rather disgusted, and he's got a bad sense of smell so imagine how strong the scent is for someone with a good nose!

We also agreed that the cream leaves a seriously greasy residue. My hands are slipping over the keyboard as I write this, and I applied it about fifteen minutes ago. I can also still smell the product without bringing my hands to my nose, so it does linger and the scent remains quite strong after use.

This would probably make a good foot cream, so don't despair if you received this and don't like it either: it's fine as a body cream and it'd be quite nice applied to your feet before you cover them with socks and go to bed.

There's not much more to say about the product so I'll wrap it up here. The last thing I will say, however, is that I'm going to go and wash this stuff off my hands now because the greasy residue is bothering me, and I don't think I've ever done that with a hand cream before - so that's saying something!

Not for me.
