Essence Tropical Hand Mousse Review

Essence Tropical Hand Mousse

Last week Essence Malta sent me this dermatologist recommended tropical hand mousse and it quickly and unexpectedly became one of my favourite hand moisturisers!

When I saw it I was certainly intrigued by the fact that it’s a mousse for hand care. I’ve never seen a mousse hand moisturiser before so this certainly got my attention. I always think that a mousse is a fun product, you dispense it, you watch it expand… Is it just me? The packaging of this is really fun and this product has a tropical scent.

So I put some on the back of my hand, watched it expand (because I love watching that haha) and then rubbed it in. It immediately felt very nourishing like there is some nice oil in it.. that I later found out was manoi oil and aloe vera.

Aloe vera is well known as a healing ingredient but I had no idea what this manoi oil is so I went ahead and googled it for you.. here’s what comes up

“Monoï oil is an infused perfume-oil made from soaking the petals of Tahitian gardenias (best known as Tiaré flowers) in coconut oil. Monoï (pronounced Mah-noy) is a Tahitian word meaning “scented oil” in the Reo-Maohi language. Monoï is widely used among French Polynesians as a skin and hair softener.”

Ah sounds so nice… so it’s essentially coconut oil that’s scented with gardenias.

I don’t use a lot of this product and I find that it immediately softens my skin and makes it feel nourished. I like keeping this at my desk and every once in a while I put some on. My hands and cuticles are looking very moisturised.

Since this was sent to me I didn’t know how much it costs but now I’m looking at the Pavi supermarket website and it costs €2.49 for the 50mL can. This is a really good price for such a good quality hand product. Certainly a steal!

All in all, you can certainly tell that I love this product and can highly recommend it. Try it and let me know what you think!
