Review ~ Neal's Yard Remedies Bee Lovely Hand Cream

14 August 2012

As you probably know a while back I posted about Neal’s Yard Bee Lovely Hand Cream etc.  Well now I have been using this beautiful cream for a while and it is absolutely delicious!

Normally I’m not the biggest fan of honey, I find the scent a little to raw for me, but this hand cream has a wonderful blend of organic essential orange oil that is sweet but subtle and blends in beautifully with the honey.

At first I was way too overzealous with the amount I used and squeezed out a huge dollop that took forever to rub in and left my hands feeling quite greasy. So a word from experience, you really don’t need much at all to get a good result from this cream. When you use the right amount (for my little hands, about a large pea sized dot) you aren’t left with any residue or greasiness, which is a fair rarity when essential oils are used.

It’s quite a thick cream formula but is ultra smooth and soft and is easily absorbed by the skin. Like I said the smell is divine. As you first apply it, the citrusy zingy orange is quite strong but that quickly blends down as you massage it in and you are left with a very subtle hint of orange oil. I wouldn’t say the scent lasts particularly long on the skin but it’s very enjoyable while it lasts, careful though you don’t get too carried away enjoying it, I have recently received some very quizzical looks on the tube, no doubt people are wondering what’s going on with the ‘hand sniffer’! haha it just smells amazing and really perks me up when I’m tired in the mornings. It’s actually designed to energise and lift the spirits and I genuinely think it does a little!

For a 50ml tube you pay £10 online (I got it for £9.50 in store) and you can also buy it in a little set with some wildflower seeds. Not bad seeing as some of the proceeds (5% I believe) go to helping raise awareness to save the bees! (I chose the latter as I rather like a spot of planting.)

Ps. Of course it is also paraben and SLS etc free!
