Pros of MCaffeine Naked & Raw Coffee Hand Cream:

  • The packaging is travel friendly.
  • The cream is moisturizing.

Cons of MCaffeine Naked & Raw Coffee Hand Cream:

  • The fragrance of the product is so prominent that it gives me a headache. That is a really big disadvantage in my opinion.
  • The effect does not longer very last of the cream but the fragrance does.

Personal Opinion

The product does a decent job at moisturizing hands. The fragrance is a major drawback of this cream, it is really overpowering. I would give a rating of 2 out of 5, only because it does its intended function and that it has some good ingredients in there. Will I buy it again? A big no would my answer.
