Askmewhats Reviews: Amu'in Alaga Moisturizing Hand Lotion

Do you remember the first time you held hands with your first boyfriend/girlfriend? Guys probably do not feel this way, but I felt self-conscious! Because I feel that I have laundry hands, actually I did have laundry hands when I was younger, I guess when you're born with pretty face, your hands aren't perfect *major laugh!!!!* lol (where did that come from?) hahahaha I am laughing so hard now! So sorry! hahaha

Anyways, back to my story, I've always had laundry hands and holding hands with my first boyfriend, KEITH :D, was the best and worst moment of my life! The moment was ruined as I'm super self-conscious with how he feels after holding my hands. Will my dry hands turn him off? Well, it obviously didn't but he did admitted to me that I have dry hands back then!
How I wish there are easy-to-bring hand lotion before!

He looks into my eyes
Reached out for my hands
*takes out the hand lotion*
*quickly apply lotion*
Doesn't work eh? LOL

Amu'in Alaga Hand Lotion says ---

Moisturize and soften your hands and other rough spots with this luscious anti-ageing and moisturizing hand cream made of shea butter and mangosteen extract blended with sweet orange and lime essential oils.


Askmewhats says ---

  • all natural ingredients
  • not tested on animals
  • moisturizes the hands
  • no waxy feel
  • scent isn't overwhelming
  • relaxing scent
  • has expiration date
  • if you're nearing to finishing the product, you have to pump many times for the remaining product to come out.
  • not readily available all across the country or worldwide (I wish it'll happen soon)

As you read in the first part of this post, I do have dry, rough hands. I thought when you're born with it, you're doomed to live with it. That is totally untrue! I learn that being consistent in applying your hand lotion will help the texture of your hands. Just like anti-aging products, it does take time and the time and effort pays off! I seriously have better hands due to my constant application of hand lotions, and having a hand lotion that's easy to take along, plus the scent that relaxes you, is a wonderful plus! It isn't hard to be loyal to Amu'in Alaga Moisturizing Hand Lotion.

  • According to Amu'in: Store in cool dry place, avoid light and heat, do not use if pregnant, not to be taken internally. Keep out of reach of children. Use within 12 months after opening. Natural ingredients may cause color variations.
  • re-apply as much as needed, but make sure to wash your hands before you eat.
  • if you want to take the hand lotion everywhere you go, purchase their travel sizes. Size is 25ml

Will I repurchase?

  7. Sis I know what you mean about dry hands as I have the same problem. I remember as a teenager when I was complaining about it and one of my mom's friends told me that it was a sign that I was hard working. It didn't make me feel any better, no. Hahahaha! I've noticed that it contains a few alcohol ingredients sis, doesn't it affect it's moisturising properties in the long run? I've tried a lot of hand moisturizers including high end ones but keeps getting disappointed so I keep going back to my Vaseline Intensive Rescue specially now that I'm back to work. xxx
