Beyond Organic Replenishing Hand Cream.

As most of you will know by now, I have a slight obsession with hand-cream. I apply a lot throughout the day then before bed I go a bit OTT and pile it on.

I know some people arent too bothered about whats in their skincare but over half of what we put on our bodies is absorbed and for that reason I always try to go organic, especially with products I use all day, like hand cream.

Replenishing hand cream, 50ml, £19.02  has to be used within 3 months of being open as theres no nasty preservatives added. Some people might hate having to use up a product in such a short space of time but it gives me peace of mind and its something I wish more companies would do.

Anyway, onto the hand-cream.. I've never had any cream with the same texture as this, at first I thought it was going to be really heavy and not absorb but this wasnt the case. I dont even know how to describe the texture, its like an opaque, yellow, solid cream/balm that needs to be scraped out of the pot.

Theres a certain amount of 'slip' which allows you to really massage it into the cuticles or any overly dry patches you might have. This hand cream is 100% natural and has picked up 6 awards. I havent tried any other products from Beyond Organic Skincare but its definately worth taking a look. As expected, the scent is the usually 'organic-y' type smell but its definately not an assault on the senses. The Shea Butter leaves your hands really soft and theres even Lecithin to help reduce any redness.
