My Story to Review Kronokare:
I have extremely dry hands and they get dehydrated pretty easily if not moisturized properly after each wash. I prefer hand creams more than lotions because creams are the blend of a higher percentage of oil with little droplets of water mixed together hence thick and very rich in consistency; whereas Lotions have a higher percentage of water and little droplets of oil which results in liquid consistency thus not very hydrating.
I never heard of Kronokare before and it caught my attention only by their continuous sponsor ads popping out in my insta feeds and being a blogger I tend to explore new products, so finally I swiped up to their website and the history of the company amazed me. This company was bootstrapped for a longer period of time but eventually, their patience & consistent hard work paid off. These products seem ethical and this was sufficient for me to put them on my blog. While going through the product menu I notice the hand lotions, though I don’t prefer lotions but my dire need enforced me to purchase a 320ml bottle of Provencal Lavender Smooth(ening) operator.

The packaging is very decent and straight forward- it’s a translucent bottle with press top (disc lid) cap, but the bottle size is too big to carry while travelling. One more thing which bothers me is the text under the ingredient section; it’s impossible to read if you’re buying the product over the counter. I used my phone camera to read the text description.My Experience with Kronokare:
I ordered this product directly from Kronokare website which was an easy checkout process and received it super quickly within 1 or 2 days. The Package contained a 320ml bottle of Provencal Lavender Smooth(ening) operator, One free sample of “Polish The Blemish” Face scrub tube and company’s retail brochure.
The product is Light-weight, non-greasy, and easily absorbed into the skin just like any other lotions and perfect for normal to slightly dry skin but as I mentioned earlier I have an extremely dry skin and lotions are not meant for me so I may not buy this product again because I can still feel the dryness though I applied a generous amount of it but can’t blame the product because it has a nature of lotion, not a cream. Also, It has a very strong, intense fragrance which doesn’t fall under my affinity due to my sensitive nose but overall it’s a decent product with few pros and cons mentioned below:
- Sulphate, Paraben, Silicone, Mineral Oil Free
- Recyclable Packaging, Vegetarian Ingredient, Cruelty Free
- Easily absorb in the skin without any grease
- Fast Delivery
- Easy checkout process
- Available at major online stores
- Not for extremely dry skin
- The ingredient font size is too small to read
- Not available in stores easily
- Size is too big to pack while traveling
Though it’s not for my skin type, it’s a chemical-free, environment-friendly product and might be a good choice for those who need moderate hydration. I try to promote ethical products and Kronokare is one of them for sure. Sometimes the product is really good but it might not suit a particular skin type and that doesn’t hold a company under the scrutiny. Anyways, I would love to read your thoughts in the comment section and please do not hesitate to connect on Instagram.
