My Take On FabIndia Lemon Intensive Hand Cream-
This comes in an olive-green tube with all information printed on it. I was super scared when I saw the ingredients list- it contains Urea, Parabens, Silicones and a whole lot of other stuff too! But then, it did no harm to my hands. It has a flip top cap and the cream is thick in consistency and so you may face some problem while getting the cream out of the tube. The cream is white in color and feels slightly greasy.

This is more of a night cream since it is thick and feels slightly greasy. If you are planning to hold a pen after using this, then just skip the idea :P But yes, it moisturizes the hands nicely and makes them soft and smooth. However, if you have super-duper dry hands then you will need something better. I usually apply it before going to sleep. I wake up with glowing, soft hands. I use it during the daytime too- but only a very little amount, otherwise the hands get slightly greasy. It does not feels heavy, though.
The cream has a medicinal fragrance with a hint of sweet lemons in it. The fragrance is not bothersome and does not linger on for a long time. If you use it heavily during the day, then the moisture lasts for about 3 hours on my hands, which is pretty good! My hands stay soft for like 2 days! It does help with those dry patches you get on your hands. But for winter- we definitely need something better.
Summing up the pros and Cons-

|See, I told you! This cream is quite thick :P...You may face problems in spreading it properly...|
Overall verdict- Get this cream if you do not have very dry hands. I am sure it will work for you :) At this price, you get an amazing quantity. I completely recommend this hand-cream to all of you with normal to slightly dry hands. Excessively dry hands need to get something more moisturizing- try the Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion :)
