This nifty little hand cream not only helps soften hands but it also supports a good cause to help save the bees. If you are not aware recently over the past few years or so bees have been dying out due to pesticides used on our crops and polluting the atmosphere, this in return killing bees and many other beautiful parts of nature, such as plants and living animals/insects. It’s not only chemicals that are causing these sudden deaths but the constant weather changes in the environment. Bees are a very important part of our existence, they pollinate the plants/trees that release oxygen into the atmosphere and if these plants do not get pollinated they will surely die out this simply meaning our food supply will be more restricted and less oxygen in the atmosphere.
Hand Cream: Neal’s Yard Bee Lovely Hand Cream
Now on to the product itself and all one word to describe this hand cream would be “Incredible”. The scent really is uplifting packing lots of fruity notes from orange essential oil to a dash of organic honey. The scent lasts for hours after applying this as its very strong! Some people prefer strong scents others not so much, but I personally love strong scents. I always feel more energized after applying this in the morning and happy as the smell really is amazing! It works very hard to soften up the hands also leaving them super smooth and soft, the colour of the cream is naturally white and it’s thick in the substance which is a nice aspect as there’s nothing worse than a watery hand cream which I have experienced before. The creams its self can be slightly pricey, but I do feel it’s worth it for the amount of product you get and it lasts a good few months as you only need a small amount as it packs so much moisture.
The packaging really is pretty and I just love the honeycomb detailing and the lid is easy to remove which is a bonus! I really like the ethics of the brand as it states they donate at least £10,000 a year to bee lovely projects to help save the bees which really is thoughtful and when buying this hand cream you have also contributed to this great cause.The Hand cream is formulated without, Parabens, Nano Particles, Synthetic Fragrances, Synthetic Colours, Mineral Oils, GMO Ingredients to name a few. With that said this can really add to the price of the product because it’s all natural and most natural cosmetics cost a vast amount more than chemically produced so I always try and keep that in mind when purchasing. I got this sample hand cream from Marie Claire Magazine a few months back and loved it ever since.
