Glysolid Glycerin Cream Review
Glycerin is known as a humectant. It means that it attracts water. Because of this if applied correctly it would quickly restores smoothness, softness and elasticity of the skin caused by prolonged exposure extreme temperature like full blast air-con or the hot rays of the sun, and harsh chemicals like household detergents. Today I’ll be reviewing this cream that was a sweet relief to my dry skin not only last summer but also these past rainy days. I know a lot of you already heard about this product but let me share to you my experience. :)

I discovered this cream in a local forum about beauty stuff. It was highly raved because of its effectiveness. One seller in said forum offered this one and I immediately bought it. When I got it true enough it really softens skin. I love that it really smoothens my elbows and knees since they are the roughest part of my body. I rarely wear lotion but this one made me do it every now and then. Upon application it would be really sticky that I have a hard time spreading it, what I do in order to have a fuss free application I apply Johnson’s baby lotion the one in pink then apply this one. Voila!
It smells like baby powder to me which I really love. I didn’t notice that it really softens my elbow and knees in a long run but it smoothens. I never tried applying it on my whole body since this takes time to dry and be absorbed by the skin. But I tried applying it on my hands, wow it really makes my dry hands smooth and softer. There was a time that I was the dishwasher of the week that my hands felt thin and stretched from all the washing. I just applied it at night the next day it is already smooth & soft again.
It also says that it could be applied on cracked heels but I haven’t experienced crack heels since I always wear socks.
By using it sparingly it would provide us relief on those extra dry days. It would be a sticky mess if used more than what is advised ;)
It looks so sticky right?
Glysolid Glycerin Cream - What I Like About It
- Softens and really smoothens skin
- The scent is good
- A little product goes a long way (they advised to use a very small amount product!)
- It is non-greasy but a little sticky while wet
- Sealed with a foil tin
- Manufacturing and expiry date is present
Glysolid Glycerin Cream - What I Don’t Like About It
- Could be messy in application
- Unhygienic tub, since I have to scoop the product with bare hands
- The tin can is easily deformed
- Can be a bit sticky if not used sparingly
- You could actually try the other variants like the lotion which I think is less sticky.
I love this cream but I am super lazy when it comes to applying lotion and creams on my body. I still use this every now and then whenever I feel that my hands, knees or elbows are extra dry though.
I would recommend this one to girls or even boys who need extra loving care for their skin. :)
