My Story to Review Kronokare:
I have extremely dry hands and they get dehydrated pretty easily if not moisturised properly after each wash. I prefer hand creams more than lotions because creams are the blend of the 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, it caught my attention only by their continuous sponsor ads popping out in my insta feeds and being a blogger you 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 long period of time but eventually their patience & consistent hardwork paid off. I found the products were ethical and this was sufficient to review them on my blog. While going through the product menu I realised they have hand lotions, though I don’t prefer lotions but for my dire need as I completely ran out of hand cream enforced me to purchase a 320ml bottle of Provencal Lavender Smooth(ening) operator.

The packaging is very decent and straight forward, The bottle is translucent with press top (Disc lid) cap. Though I wish they should managed a readable font under the ingredient section as I had a great difficulty reading it and the size of the bottle is little big for travelling kit.
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 and intense fragrance which specifically doesn’t fall under my affinity as I prefer mild fragrances 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 can be a good choice for those who need moderate hydration. I try to promote ethical products and Kronokare seems one of them, This review is totally based on my experience but this may differ from others. Sometimes the product is really good but it may not suit a particular skin type and that doesn’t hold a company under scrutiny. I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences if you used Kronokare products, also I’m curious to know if there are lotions available for extremely dry skin because I would definitely love to try that! I always provide a genuine review about the product so please don’t hesitate to drop any questions you have because this is the reason I’m putting my money and time into blogging so that I can solve your problems by answering the questions. Really I would love to interact with you all and if you’re not into a blog reading, let’s connect on Instagram to get familiar with all of my craziness and if you need a little motivation life than read here hope I’ll not disappoint you with words. I’m planning a one more ethical product to review very soon till then make world a better place 🙂
