Conscious skincare hand cream for hard working hands



    My hands have been having a hard time this week, since we bought our new house I have had extra cleaning to do and plenty of gardening which has taken it's toll on my skin. For that reason now is a great time to tell you about the Conscious skincare soothing hand cream for hard working hands* (£14.99 for 50 ml) which is the perfect hand cream for anyone needing a deeply hydrating hand treatment. Before we get on to the hand cream itself I have to say Conscious skincare have been on my list to try for some time, their ethos is exactly what I look for in a brand and their products always look and sound appealing to me, they have been getting rave reviews on lot's of blog's too. The products are handmade in small batches in Wales with great attention to the ingredients used and the environment. They carry the leaping bunny symbol too which shows they are cruelty free. They use lot's of organic ingredients and they are all listed fully for each product on the site, which makes choosing products really easy. On a side note I just love the name of the brand, Conscious skincare reflects so well what the brand stands for and for that reason alone they grabbed my attention. 

   This hand cream is not what you think of when you think of a traditional hand cream, it has absolutely no water added so is a pure mix of butters and oils. The first two ingredients are Shea Butter and Avocado oil, so you are already off to great start in terms of moisturising and nourishing then beeswax, rosehip seed oil and evening primrose oil are next to further add to the skincare benefits, there is not a single ingredient in this product that I don't love and due to the fact that no water is added you have a gorgeous concentrated product that needs only a small amount to really make a difference to the skin. It is scented with Rose Geranium and Frankincense essential oils and it smells slightly herbal and floral, very natural and not at all overpowering for my taste. 

    Due to the richness of the ingredients this has a whipped body butter type texture and is very pleasant to use, as it feels like a real treat. If you are looking for a hand cream that you are able throughout the day with no greasiness then this may not be for you, having said that I find that if you use a very small amount and massage it in well my skin has been very grateful for the extra nourishment this provides. My favourite way to use this however is a night time treatment, I apply a generous layer followed by cotton gloves and it heals and soothes the hands overnight reducing dryness and soreness. 

    This is perfect for anyone who works outdoors or who does a lot of gardening and as Conscious skincare has some lovely gift wrap options I think their products would make a lovely gift too. You can find their full range on their site here, although I warn browsing their site is addictive, I have already added their Sweet orange and Frangipani bath soak to my wish list. Have you tried Conscious skincare, if so what did you think?
