REVIEW: botanicES Hand Crème...

Not long ago, I stocked up on my beloved botanicES products, and decided to purchase the Full Skin Care Package, not only because I never want to run out of these magical formulations (it's my staple skin care), but because the pack includes the Hand Crème,which I was busting to try. At the time I placed my order, the crème was out of stock as the formula was being reworked to include Aloe Vera (yay!), so the Team botanicES lovelies posted it onto me as soon as it was available...
First of all let me just say this - if you are looking for a hand cream that gives your skin all the nourishment it needs to be smooth, soft, supple and hydrated AND isn't the slightest bit greasy, then this is the bomb! I don't think I've ever come across a formulation that does all of the above and absorbs so rapidly and completely that it doesn't leave even a trace of anything slippery on the surface. I swear you could apply it, and within seconds, pick up your most treasured crystal goblet, and not be at risk of either dropping it, or leaving a fingerprint film on the glass - it's nothing short of amazing ...
The scent is very similar to the other products in the range - delicate, organic and delicious, and it fades within a few minutes to the point where it's barely perceptible. The resulting softness is quite remarkable, and in my opinion, this hand crème has only one flaw - it comes in a squiddly little 15ml pump pack. Oh sure it's an exceptionally handy purse size (with zero risk of leaks), but for around the home, oh please botanicES, make it available in a 100ml bottle so I can slather it on!...

So this is what one pump looks like - I usually squirt one one each hand, and that's ample for complete coverage, instant elimination of dryness, and enough to massage into my cuticles. Did I mention I find this formula to be so incredibly soothing and smoothing?...
Here's the ingredients

Here's what's NOT included...
And here's what comes in the Full Skin Care Package for $120 - such a beautifully boxed presentation...
There is one thing that makes me sad though - at present, the hand crème is not available to purchase separately, it only comes with the Full Skin Care Package. But I do so hope that changes soon as I love it so much I would buy at least three bottles of it in a heart beat ...

Take care of you,

    1. Indeed it sure is a beauty hon - and botanicES let me know that they're planning to make the creme available separately, and in a bigger pump pack, so I'm excited! ♥♥♥
