My Experience With CM Soap Max Rosa Damascena Calendula Hand Cream:


On my recent visit to Stanley Market, Hong Kong, I came across the CM Soap Max outlet in an exhibition hall. The team was kind enough to gift me a sample of my chosen hand cream for trial so that I can try and see if it’s working great for my skin before I purchase the big size. Since this is a tiny sample size, it lasted me only a few usages, but I must say, I am quite impressed with it😊 You people know my obsession with rose scented skincare products, right? But first, let’s talk about its two key ingredients and their benefits – 
 
Rosa damascena, a rose hybrid- commonly known as the Damask rose or Rose of Castile is one of the most important species of Rosaceae family. Rosaceae are well- known ornamental plants and are renowned as the king of flowers. 
  • They are commercially cultivated for using in perfume (for its fine fragrance), medicine (for antibacterial & antimicrobial properties) and food industry (as gulkand and herbal tea)
  • R.Damascena is used in making different products like Rose Water, Rose Oil, Dried Flowers (Buds and Petals as well as both dried and fresh Hips)
  • Rose Essential oil prepared from this plant is considered as one of the most beneficial and expensive essential oils for its healing and antiseptic properties. 

Calendula, a plant extract, widely used as a remedy for dry and damaged skin woes.
  • It boasts antibacterial and antimicrobial properties thus can be used for skin rashes, sunburns and other skin irritations
  • Calendula oil can help prevent crow’s feet under the eyes as well as premature ageing. It makes skin soft and supple if applied as a topical product.

Besides these two components, the hand cream is infused with a lot of other organic skin-friendly ingredients which I liked a lot😊
 
The hand cream sample came into a tiny plastic box inside a small packet with a card mentioning the product related details in Chinese. Yes, Chinese!! First, I translated the language into English and then to confirm the same, I contacted the team. Their customer service is really fast and quickly they sent me all the details via texts.

Well, the fragrance is soothing and refreshing but doesn’t linger for long! Beauties with a sensitive nose (and if you are not a rose scent lover) will not find it bothersome at all because it’s not overpowering! Since it contains floral wax, the texture is quite thick and creamy. Thus when applied on hands, it feels greasy and heavy which oily skin beauties might not enjoy. Also, it does take a good time to get fully absorbed into the skin. Mind you!

Nonetheless, it helps prevent the dryness and made my dry hands soft and supple which lasted for a good period of time. I used it on my clean hands after lunch and dinner daily till the last bit of the product and found that all its claims were absolutely true and perfect. But, it couldn't give that glow or reduce the tanning on my hands, neither it claims so! Moreover, you just need a tiny bit amount of this cream to nourish your hands. It is a must-have for the winter season when our hands get real parched and need something to boost the moisture.

Plus Points:

  • Au Naturel & handmade product 
  • Packed with Vitamin and Organic components
  • Best suited for normal to dry skin
  • It’s ultra-thick and nourishing
  • Makes hands soft and hydrated
  • Contains Calendula oil, so it’d help prevent ageing spots & fine lines
  • Keeps hands moisturised for a long time
  • Only a little amount of this cream is required per use
  • Would last long
  • Soothing and mild scent
  • A winter must-have product for all because it helps protect hands against chapped and cracked skin

Minus Points:

  • Availability of CM Soap Max products outside Hong Kong is an issue definitely. They are currently operating their business within Hong Kong only, at present no overseas shipping. The owner Carman briefed-
“My hand cream is of limited supply and subject to pre-paid orders to make. Price may vary in case of higher orders(Postage within Hong Kong area is inclusive if you purchase products at an amount of HKD 300 or higher)”.

  • Some may find it to be a little pricey. But I feel since this is a purely natural product and do what it claims, the price is justifiable!
  • Oily skin beauties might feel this to be a heavy and greasy hand cream.


Rating: 4.9/5


Conclusion:

CM Soap Max Rosa Damascena Calendula Hand Cream is a powerful natural handmade hand cream which moisturises the dry skin really well and makes the hands soft and supple. It doesn’t contain any nasty chemicals so 100% safe for our skin, then why to wait? Visit their Facebook page or Whatsapp them your favourite skincare products without any hesitation.

My hands and feet are super dry and they look more aged than my real age!! So I usually look for highly moisturised plus brightening hand and feet creams for the same. I will surely purchase a full sized product of this cream once I finish up my current favourite hand cream 😊

[P.S= This is neither a PR sample nor I've written it under any pressure. I loved this product so thought of appreciating it and its makers.]

Hope you find this review helpful.
