The packaging design of these hand creams is awesome
I know a lot of people who are kind of addicted to hand cream. I am certainly not one of them, but I am addicted to well-designed packaging, which makes it pretty obvious why I fell for the Dark collection of TOKYOMILK.
Far away from flowery or girly patterns, the pitch black tubes are printed with animals and objects that you rather expect on pesticides than on beauty products: guns, bugs, and octopuses (and notably not the sweet comic version with big eyes) adorn products with names like "Arsenic", "Novacaine" or "Pretty Rotten" - as you see, it is not just the packaging that is dark.
Below you find an overview over the different unexpected, surreal and seducing-sounding scents of the creams that are based on nourishing shea butter. My favorite one is clearly Bullet Proof fragranced with Smoked Tea, Coconut Milk, Crushed Cedar, and Ebony Woods. Sounds like a sensuous olfactory adventure.
