If you’re looking for a cheap-and-effective hand cream, I’ll recommend the Madre Labs Unscented Hand Cream With Argan Nut Oil. It usually costs US$6.71 but is going for US$2 if you purchase it with any bath and beauty products at iHerb.com for a limited time now. It’s a full-size tube weighing 71 g and while it is not the best hand cream around, it is definitely a good promotional buy. In fact, I scored it for free when I got it last month.
So I took a random chance with Nubian Heritage, giving their Raw Shea Butter Hand Cream with Soy Milk a trial after a not-so-fantastic encounter with their African Black Soap Body Wash. I needed a rich cream by my bedside that would comfort my hands before bedtime and this one looks thick enough for my need. I mean, Vitamin E? Frankincense? Myrrh? They all sound like nutrients my hands badly need to grab!
How is it I’ve never checked out Weleda? Well, I don’t know. I should have because I’m quite impressed with the first product I’ve purchased from the brand—the Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Hand Cream. In fact, I consider it on par with some of the best non-natural hand creams I’ve tried. And though I don’t really like metallic tubes because of how they warp after awhile, I am somehow very attracted to the packaging of this one. The gorgeous red color must have won my heart hands down!
Early last month, I was sent a couple of products from Morcare in UK. This is a line of cosmetics that are formulated with naturally derived ingredients, and made with a strong focus on social responsibility where special care is given to the origin, the cultivation, the method of collection of the raw materials for the further processing. All Morcare products are made to be free of chemical preservatives, PEG, mineral oil, synthetic additives, GMO, and fragrance. In addition, they are not tested on animals and the formulations are said to be non-comedogenic.
I’m not a stranger to Trilogy, having used their Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil back in 2008. I had liked the product and was keen to try others in the range but was dismayed to find out that when I did want to try, the brand is no longer available at Watsons. But thank goodness for the good people at It’s Natural! Six of their products are now available in Singapore again and I was given two for a complimentary review recently.
