There are some pretty good magazine freebies around this month, one of which is a tube of Balance Me's Super Moisturising Hand Cream, which I picked up around a fortnight ago and thought I'd review so that you can pick one up if you like the sound of it! The sunshine-yellow tube caught my eye immediately as I was browsing the magazines in Sainsbury's, I really like the bright colour. The hand cream is described as "ultra effective and seriously soothing" - sounds perfect!
"Multi-award winning and seriously rich, our hand cream has been formulated with a unique and uplifting blend of renowned ancient skin conditioners benzoin and yarrow, as well as fatty-acid and vitamin-rich shea butter to leave even the driest hands smooth and soft to touch. " For me, the most noticeable thing about Balance Me's Super Moisturising Hand Cream is the scent, which is very lavender-y and not really the sort of thing I'd choose, although it's by no means unpleasant. It just wouldn't be my choice! The cream itself is easy to dispense from the screw-cap tube, and has a lovely balmy texture which spreads readily over the hands and absorbs quickly, without leaving behind any stickiness or greasy residue. I find it leaves my hands feeling soft, smooth and well-hydrated, which is basically what I'm looking for in a hand cream! I wash my hands very frequently at work so a good hand cream is a must-have and I do think this one works well and lives up to its claims.
Balance Me Super Moisturising Hand Cream is available directly from Balance Me, with prices starting at £7.50 for 30ml, though you can currently get a tube with October's issue of Marie Claire for £3.99 (in the UK), so I'd say it's worth searching out if you like the sound of it! Did you pick up any of the Balance Me products with Marie Claire, or any other magazine freebies this month? What's your favourite hand cream?
