Best Korean Hand Creams – Buying Guide 2017

HANDS FEELING PARCHED? MOISTURIZE WITH THESE CUTIES...


What's better than gorgeous, moisturized, smooth touchable hands? Gorgeous, mositurized, smooth touchable hands that come from an ADORABLE container! That's right, Korea is at it again with their amazing skin care products. Not only are their hand creams ultra moisturizing and great for your skin, they are also packaged in super cute bottles that channels all of our inner child. We've scoped the market, tested, and chose the best Korean Hand creams just for you!

HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST KOREAN HAND CREAM

Korean beauty products have recently made a huge impact on the American beauty market. On average, Korean's spend about twice as much money on beauty and hair products than the typical American. Because of this, it is no wonder why people can't get enough of these skincare innovations.

Not only is it vastly important to take care of your face, it is also important to maintain smooth, healthy skin on your hands. So why not just use any old lotion to keep your clappers happy? Most body lotions are a lost more watery than hand creams since they are made to spread over more surface area. If you've ever used regular lotion on your hands, it feels like you're not really getting all the moisture you need. Hand creams are high moisture, thicker more viscous creams that will stay on your skin throughout the day and keep your hands looking young and beautiful

So how do you choose which Korean hand cream is the best for you? We've found 4 different key elements that will help narrow down your search to find the best Korean hand creams that are tailored just for you.

Packaging

When it comes to Korean hand creams, these products are just as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside. What makes these products unique is their adorable exterior, usually some fun shape or character.

Scent

There's nothing better than having a fresh burst of scent when you're applying your foundation. Some of these hand creams come with a fruity fragrance or floral accent to add a little zest to your dry hands.

Dispenser

Most Korea hand creams will come in a twisted lid style, where you can scoop out just the right amount of product with your hands. Others will have a squeeze bottle tube sort of like toothpaste. Depending if you're using it at home or on the go, this may be a determining factor.

Moisture

Some hand creams will be uber moisturizing, which is great for the cold dry winters or people who live in drier climates. Others may prefer something less thick and pasty. Both are excellent moisturizers and will leave your hands gorgeous.

If you're the kind of person who makes most life decisions with their nose, then you're in luck! The TONY MOLY Fruit Hand Cream set smells so delectable  you almost could eat it (which we don't recommend because its not food). Contained in adorable fruit shaped packaging, these hand creams are perfect for on the go or for use at home.

Although they look adorable on the outside, these hand creams are packed with vitamin rich nutrients for your skin that keep you hands moisturized throughout the day. We noticed that the moisture lasts even onto the next day and leaves hands soft to touch without the greasy goupy sensation.

We LOVE this hand cream because of its overall efficacy and delicious smell. Not only do you get all the benefits of a top rated cream, but you get all these great features for an excellent price. Check it out for yourself and see how it adds up to your leading hand cream.

You truly would have to be a monster to think these hand creams were not adorable. These egg-shaped cuties are not only irresistably cute, but they also are excellent moisturizers for your hands. For those of you who aren't a fan of really thick hand creams, the texture of this is light and more watery, leaving your hands moisturized and not feeling greasy.

When it comes to scents, Etude House makes sure you're always spoiled for choice. Each loveable animal comes in a different scent. Most lotions and hand creams focus on fruity smells. However, these hand creams also come in exotic scents like Grean Tea and Peony.


Overall, we love this product and we know you will too. Even if you use up all of the product, which you DEFINITELY will, you can still use the adorable containers for other skin care products or just as a cute decoration.

Ahh...the cuteness is just unbearable! These adorable little pets house an excellent hand cream that's slightly lighter than typical hand creams. The texture is closer to aloe vera, so for those of you who don't need a whole lot of moisture, these hand creams are perfect for you.

In terms of scent, these hand creams come in four different smells: baby powder, fruit, floral, and sweet. The scent lasts about 2 hours and slowly dissipates throughout the day, leaving your hands soft but not feeling greasy and overwhelmed with essence.

In conclusion, this product is great for those who are just getting started with hand creams. If you haven't had much experience using hand creams, this is the perfect product since it will still keep your hands young but won't leave your hands oily and over moisturized throughout the day.

Smooth hands have never been so smooth sailing! Why? Nature Republic's nature and hand hand creams (try saying that 10 times fast) is the answer to all your dry, flaky skin problems! This phenomenal product comes in 5 different scents and is a shea butter based product, so your hands stay beautiful and smooth naturally.

The product is a little on the thicker side, which in the case of hand creams is a very good thing. It's highly moisturizing and keeps your hands feeling smooth throughout the day.

We LOVE this hand cream especially because it comes in so many differen scents. So if you're bored of one, you can always switch it up with your daily routine. Plus the packaging is very portable, so you can slip one of these in your purse on the go!

Never have dry, flaky skin on your hands again with this super moisturizing hand cream. This baby is packed with moisture-intense ingredients that will keep your hands silky smooth for the duration of the day. If you like that ultra-moisturizing feel or if you live in an extra dry climate, this is the perfect cream for you.

This cream has a thick, viscous texture, so if you're not used to using hand creams, you may want to consider another cream. The scent strenght is pretty high, leaving you smelling like delicious coconuts throughout the day. It does have a slightly greasy feel immediately after you apply, but it goes away after a while.

So, if you're looking for something that's going to pretty much hydrate you in the Mojave desert, you've know where to look!

We all know that most Korean stars all have amazing beautiful flawless skin. But hey, let's be realistic. Not everybody has skin that's even and blemish free that won't react to any products places on the surface. That's why Dr. Jart is here! Finally, an effective moisturizing hand cream for sensitive skin!

We all know and love this brand, but they really picked it up a notch when it comes to efficacy for this hand cream. The texture is a perfect balance between thick and moisturizing, but also creamy where it spreads easily into your skin. It also has a subtle medicinal smell similar to herbal teas and not harsh for those who are sensitive to scents.

All in all, we love this hand cream! Even if you do have that perfect, unreactive skin, this product is definitely right for anybody looking to keep their hands smooth and moisturized through the driest seasons.

Olive oil has given us so many benefits from cooking and food to health and beauty. In this case, olive oil kicks major butt as a moisurizing hand cream. InnisFree saw the opporutity to take adavantage of olive oil's benfits and ran with it. Not only does this product moisturize, but it also locks in moisture for the entire day.

The texture of this initially looks very thick, but once you rub the product in, it leaves a very lightweight smooth spread. We know you're probably wondering what exactly olive oil smells like. Don't expect to open this bottle and compare it to the olive oil you have next to your stove. It has a more floral organic smell that's similar to lavendar.

All in all, this product gets the job done, treating your dry cracked hands while keeping your hands moisturized and healthy.

MISSHA Love Secret Hand Cream

These little hand creams are definitely an essential beauty product to have in your purse or car when you're on the go. There's no contest that these tubes are adorable. However, theyr packaging is the perfect portable size rather than lugging around a huge, unattractive bottle of lotion.

These hand creams give you just the right amount of moisture you need when your hands are feeling lightly dry. The texture is light and watery, so the product spreads evenly and sinks into your skin quickly. The moisture doesn't last all day, so a few applications throughout the day should do the trick.

Overall, we love this products versitility and feel. It also smells DIVINE! Careful though, it's heavily scented so be prepared to smell delicious all day!
