First of all happy new year! I hope your year has started positively and you are all in good health!
Sorry for being MIA, will try to share more reviews again and do it more regularly!
My first review of the year is about handcreams! This will be for Lapcos handream rose and Minnie and Chonee romantic rose hand cream.
I love handcreams, I always have a tube or two inside my bag.
At work, there is always cream on my desk as I apply some each time after going to the bathroom,I just don’t like having dry hands. And if I smell something “bad” I apply cream on my hands so I can remove the bad odours.. I have quite a sensitive sense of smell, I just can’t help it.
Rose scented products is not really my fave as it can either smell like those cheap scented candles to me, and can be overpowering.
That’s why I don’t have too many rose scented products.
That’s a small details about me, but let’s start with the review.
Lapcos handcream rose and Minnie
Lapcos is a Korean brand who also sell clothes under the name Lap , so their cosmetic brand is called Lapcos(metics).
Quite an easy name to remember. Discovered this brand thanks to Kang Daniel really, so I got curious about their cosmetic products.
Their items are mostly sold online on theamall.com , and in some standalone Lap store.

The price range is midrange, it’s not cheap but also not too expensive.
Last year, they had some special sale and got a kit for around 25€ that contained a cushion, eyeshadow palette, lipstick, nail stickers and this handcream.

Ordered this via Testerkorea btw, if you guys want to buy something from a Korean online store, just submit a request to Testerkorea and they might add the product on their site.
This handcream is a collab with Disney.
The design is pretty simple, but with some cute details. It doesn’t look childish and looks quite fancy actually!
This handcream comes in a grey squeeze tube that contains 50 ml. Once opened, you need to use the product within 12 months.
The explanation of the product is in Korean, the only English part is the name of the product.
It has a screw top opening, so you can securely close it . There won’t be any accidental leakage inside your bag/pouch.
I must say I do really the matte frey with the glossy little Mickey prints all over the tube.
This handcream has a buttery and thick texture, but once you spread it it kinda becomes watery.
The rose scent is not too strong, the scent gradually spreads and has more of a powdery smell to it. It’s quite discrete which I appreciate a lot.
There is no greasy feel to it, and best thing is that you don’t have an oily finish, so you can easily open a bottle or grab a pen after applying this. No greasy fingerprints on your desk too!
I really like this handcream, it has a great finish with no oiliness. Despite it being rose scented, it’s not overpowering and the scent is quite discrete.
Chonee Romantic rose handcream
I had won this handream from an IG giveway to celebrate the opening of BBcosmetics.

I am quite unfamiliar to Chonee so I can’t really say if this is a good brand or not.
I have never this Korean brand in store when I travel to Seoul so maybe this is quite a small brand only sold online. But again I might be wrong…
From the look of it, it looks like this is more for young people teens to early 20’s.
The cream comes in a tube that contains 50gr.
It has this illustration of a girl with a bob haircut and a very girly and frilly top. It gives me this vintage feel to it because of the drawing.
It also mentions that this is “City girl’s choice”.
On the back you have the explanation of the product in Korean.
This has a very big screw top opening, so it’s again easy to close and open.
This cream is more liquid and oily. Once you spread it out, you’ll feel it’s oiliness too.
As soon as you open this, the scent of rose hits you very quickly.
When I apply this as work, all my colleagues can smell it and always wonder what it is. Once I tell them it’s my handcream, they just tell me how much they love how it smells. That’s how strongly scented this cream is. The scent linger for quite a while too.
It has a bit of greasiness too, so you do need to wait a couple of minutes before you can start grabbing stuff and work.
I can use this cream but in very moderate amount, as it’s way too strong for me. The moisturizing effect is ok.
All in all, it was fun to discover these brands.
It I had to buy a rose handcream, it would definitely be from Lapcos because of the stylish design , the texture of the cream and most definitely because of the soft and discrete scent of rose they used.
Do you have a fave rose scented hand cream or have any recommendation?
See you next time!
