I've joined GQ in trying to finish up "old" products first before buying a new one. Amongst other things, I've nearly finished my tube of GROWN Vanilla & Orange Peel Hand Cream.
So far I don't have anything I don't like from this hand cream.
Here are my thoughts on it:
- LOVE the subtly refreshing orange scent. I can't stop smelling my hands everytime I use it.
- It's non-greasy (like it said on the packaging) = I could go back to whatever I'm doing as soon as I've finished applying the cream. In fact, I'm using the hand cream as I'm typing this. :)
- It makes my hands & cuticles feel softer and moisturised for longer than other brands I've tried. IMO it's even better than my favourite L'Occitane hand creams.
- If you look at the ingredients list, it contains so many different natural oils = I like!
- The packaging reminds me so much of Aesop = chic packaging.
Verdict: It's positively my HG hand cream. When I've finished this tube, can someone in OZ please send me some more? Please? PLEASE?!
Here's the blurb on the tube: "This non-greasy formulation of moisturising active botanicals, naturally soothes and softens dry undernourished hands and cuticles.
