And so we have it – the thing you never thought would be invented; a hand cream that smells of cat’s paws. Punipuni Nikyuku Hand Cream is the result of brainstorming session at Japanese store Felissimo where someone thought it would be nice to create a cream that smells of paw. I don’t know.. I’m just the messenger, here. I’m also having to make a few assumptions because Google Translate is up to its old tricks again, but I think it’s a water fuse formula, in that as you rub it in, droplets of water appear (like Dr Jart’s Waterfuse face cream, if anyone remembers that). Reviews say that it smells sweet and milky and more like popcorn than anything your cat might have trodden in lately.
Also on my finds… Toe Socks. I have honestly no idea in what circumstances you might need these, but clearly somewhere over in Japan there is a market for them.
And finally, in my round up, bath knobs. The idea with these is that you place them on certain points in your path so that when you like down they hit your pressure points in an acupressure kind of way. I can’t think of a less comfortable way to have a bath, unless someone invents cat’s paw smelling bubble bath to go with them.

The cream is really unusual but interesting. The packaging is so cute x

Some, erm, interesting products here! Who wouldn’t want to smell like cats’ paws…?
How very strange. All of them. I’m actually in awe at the bath knobs, I just don’t know what to say haha.
And the toe socks just scare me a little.

I have sniffed the feet of both cats, and of the dog for good measure. Can confirm that I do not wish to smell of any of those toes! 😀
The hand cream sounds pretty cool, as long as it actually smells like popcorn!
I love the packaging and it seems like a good cream
not just in Japan check out http://www.toesocks.co.uk/ for every kind of toe sock you can imagine. My Podiatrist Sister-in-law says they are good for correcting feet alignment.
Kitties smell really lovely close up. Sniff a kitty’s head and find out! Gorgeous!
I’d certainly be up for a cat’s head smell handcream (as long as they keep their mouth shut so there’s no cat food odour) but feet? I know where those feet have been and – no.
Cat’s Paw is a plant.
I promise, this is actual cat’s paws.
I’ve seen Australian lotions and shampoos with Kangaroo Paw extract (similar plant).
Real, actual cat’s paws? That’s very… odd. I’m a fan of Japanese beauty products, but I’ll pass on this one.
I enjoy your posts on unusual beauty products!
The cats paw hand cream made me chuckle, I cant say I’ve ever noticed a smell from my cats paws but its a sweet idea for cat lovers!
