I did a post not long ago about what 5 luxuries I would take on a dessert island with me. One of those items was hand cream. I literally have a hand cream in every room and one in my handbag so I have one wherever I go, I use it in all seasons and Its something that's always around. I have really dry hands because I wash them hands so much throughout the day. Sweet Cecily's asked me to review one of there hand creams. I reviewed some of there lip balms last year and I thought they was fantastic, read about it here.
Sweet Cecilys is a online place to purchase lovely natural skincare products which are all handmade on the North Yorkshire Moors. They believe in only using the finest ingredients, products are free from Parabens, Petrochemicals, harmful preservatives and SLS. None of their products are tested on animals, nor are any of the ingredients.
The item came in a little cloth bag with a little note luggage tag. I like little extra packing like this as it shows that every order is important and that little bit extra goes a long way. The cream comes in a small plastic tub with a screw on lid. I'm so used to squeezy tubes that I don't think I've ever had an hand cream like this before.
The scent of the hand cream is elderflower and almond, it's not something I normally would of put together but it actually smells really nice. You get the blast of floral then nutty, it actually works very well together. I've noticed Elderflower has become very popular lately and it's been used with a lot of different things now. It isn't normally a scent I would pick up but its growing on me. The hand cream is a decent thickness, smooths easily and absorbs really quick. It doesn't leave a greasy layer and leaves your hands feeling refreshed and smooth.
