Review: Neal's Yard Geranium & Orange Hand Cream

You may have seen in my post about this month's magazine freebies that I picked up a tube of Neal's Yard Geranium & Orange Hand Cream with the August issue of InStyle; I thought I'd pop up a quick review in time for you to hopefully track one down yourself if you like the sound of it!
Neal';s Yard Geranium & Orange Hand Cream
[Ingredients: Aqua, Glycerin, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol,
Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Cera Alba (Beeswax),
Cetearyl Glucoside, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder, Citrus Sinensis Peel Oil Expressed,
Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Levulinic Acid, Sodium Levulinate,
Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Potassium Sorbate,
Xanthan Gum, Citral, Citronellol, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool.]
Presented in a pretty lavender and navy plastic tube with screw cap for easy dispensation, the packaging states the following: "Moisturises and softens with the uplifting sunny scent of rose geranium and vibrant sweet orange essential oil." ...Sounds pretty nice to me! The tube came foil-sealed for hygiene purposes, which I always appreciate, and once the foil is removed it's easy to squeeze the cream out into your hand. I suffer quite badly with dry hands due to a combination of eczema and having to wash my hands a lot at work; even so, I find that large-pea-sized amount of the thick, white cream is plenty to moisturise both hands, leaving them feeling soft and hydrated but not greasy. It spreads easily and absorbs quickly - I can still feel the cream on my hands but it's in no way sticky or unpleasant; it just feels like it's protecting my skin. The scent is, as expected with Neal's Yard products, gorgeous; quite a strong one which lingers on the skin, with the obvious scent being the orange, and the rose geranium being a more subtle, background scent. Personally I really like the scent but if you don't, I feel like it would be a deal-breaker just because it's strong and does linger after application.
Neal's Yard Geranium & Orange Hand Cream Review
All in all, I really like this hand cream and feel like even at full price, it's a pretty good buy due to its kind ingredients list and the fact that a little goes a long way. Neal's Yard Geranium & Orange Hand Cream is available with the August issue of InStyle {UK edition} at £3.90, or you can order from Neal's Yard, at £10 for the 50ml tube. Did you pick up the Neal's Yard Hand Cream with InStyle? Will you be trying to track it down before the end of the month? What's your favourite Neal's Yard product?

  2. P.S. I've just seen your little note below about not leaving links! It's a no-follow link anyway, so hopefully that's a little better than a follow one. I wasn't aware of the new rules - do you have a link to where google has said this? Sorry lovely! xxx
