The product 

On any given day, our hands go through a lot, so it’s no wonder we end up with dry, dehydrated, rough hands and brittle and weak nails.

kōtia Revitalising Hand & Nail Cream is an ultra-hydrating, nourishing and conditioning formula that moisturises and softens skin, while also helping to strengthen nails over time.

Packed full of nourishing and reparative ingredients like deer milk, olive oil extract, shea butter, keratin and kiwifruit seed oil, this hardworking hand and nail cream leaves skin feeling hydrated for up to 24 hours.

Our panel of Review Crew® members put this product to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent kōtia Revitalising Hand & Nail Cream to a panel of our trusted Review Crew® members aged between 30 and 44 years old who wanted a hydrating hand and nail cream that would help relieve dry and dehydrated hands, soften skin and condition nails. Reviewers also received the kōtia Brightening Eye Cream to try.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about kōtia Revitalising Hand & Nail Cream.

How hydrating the formula was: Reviewers loved how hydrated their hands felt after using the hand and nail cream, with many saying they noticed a considerable improvement in the dryness of their skin.

How it softened their skin: Members were very impressed by how well the hand and nail cream targeted rough skin. Some even described their hands as feeling baby-soft after use.

How it conditioned their nails: Reviewers liked that the cream cared for their nails as well as their skin. They noticed a difference in the condition of their cuticles, while a few reviewers noticed an improvement in nail growth, too.

The verdict

“You don’t need to use a lot of the cream as it sinks into your hands well and it has a great floral fragrance which I really enjoyed. The cream left my hands feeling smooth, hydrated and soft. My cuticles felt much smoother and softer after using this cream which was nice.”

“It smells beautiful and makes my hands feel soft and moisturised. The cream does not feel tacky or sticky and absorbs fast into the skin. The packaging is also luxurious, and the pump is very easy to use.”
REVIEWcrew® Member
“From an aesthetic perspective I love the packaging design and find the pump very easy to use on the go. The texture itself is very smooth and extremely hydrating - which is all I am looking for after my constant hand sanitiser use. After daily use, I have definitely noticed the hydration of my hands improving.”

Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently. A big believer in self love and experimentation, Briar has made a point of becoming the Australian beauty industry’s unofficial guinea pig for unusual treatments and daring hair trends.
