As I am from Scotland, I usually go to Boots or Superdrug to buy my cosmetics and skincare products at affordable prices.  I have discovered the Australian equivalent which is Priceline, and it does special offers and has a loyalty reward card scheme too.

Anyway, I went browsing and on a whim, decided to buy some hand cream – Priceline Basic Care Hand & Nail Cream (100ml) for $2.00AUD.

Product Description

Priceline Basic Care Hand & Nail Cream is enriched with keratin to help strengthen nails and prevent splitting while moisturising and softening your hands.



My Opinions

  • Has a pleasant light flowery scent which is not too overpowering
  • Cream absorbs relatively well and does not leave a greasy film
  • But as for strengthening nails to prevent them from splitting, I am not too convinced about that because all my nails seem to be splitting recently
  • I’m not a snob but the packaging does look a bit basic (i.e. cheap)
  • Above average 6.5 out of 10

In conclusion :  Priceline Basic Care Hand & Nail Cream, yes, you are cheap, but there’s not really much more to say about you…

BTW, Priceline has 20% off all marked prices for skincare and cosmetics (excluding sun care) for 2 days only – 27th and 28th October.  Guess what I will be doing tomorrow?

    I’m really mystified as to why they’ve chosen to do a “priceline” line and the “Models Prefer” line, which is also pricelines. that handcream would have so much more cred if it had the models prefer logos/branding. the priceline line stuff just looks cheap.
