What alverde says:

Unfortunately it seems this product is no longer available, as I could not find it online.

What I say:

It is a shame that dm took this product out of their skincare range, as I really enjoyed using it. Although it is light in texture and sinks in quickly it did moisturise my hands well enough for a couple of hours. In my opinion it did smell very neutral, though I have read reviews stating that it has a strong smell of alcohol.

What I say:

My first impression is that this lotion is very rich and doesn’t get absorbed by my skin as quickly as the hand cream by Alverde. Nevertheless it feels like it moisturises my hands very well. The smell reminds me of roses.
