I have never been much of a hand cream user, I can be quite picky about scents and hate the way that some tend to take ages to soak in causing me to leave smudges of creamy residue on everything that I touch.
So it was no surprise that when I received a gift of set of Tisserand Aromatherapy Liquid Soap and Rejuvenating Hand & Nail Cream in Wild Rose and Lemon Leaf, it sat in my drawer for well over a year (maybe even two).
But I am making a real effort to take better care of my skin, and to use products that I have rather than re-buying my trusty fail-safes. And boy was I glad that I did.
I popped the liquid soap into the bathroom in my new house and it went down extremely well with my housemates. They loved the clean, fresh smell and it certainly cheered me up in the dreary winter months.
The hand cream I kept on my desk at work. I found my hands were getting extremely dry due to the horrible weather and the heat of the office, plus I figured if it was in front of my face all day I would be more likely to use it. And use it I did!
The scent was the same as the soap and not only cheered me up but also everyone else in my office. Every time I used it one of the girls would comment on how nice it smelt. Now you may be thinking that it has a strong smell if everyone in the office could smell it when I used it. You would be right but the smell is also not overpowering in any way.
It has a fresh floral fragrance with citrus undertones. Made from rose oil, rose geranium oil, lemon leaf oil, pink grapefruit oil and calendula, this cream absorbs quickly into the skin and leaves your hands soft and nourished. It also doesn’t leave any sticky residue or creamy smudges after use.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is suffering from dry hands during our prolonged winter weather and those who can’t wait for spring.
