Quite some time ago Mary Elizabeth had a twitter competition, and I was lucky enough to receive a jar of their Juniper and Jojoba Hand Cream. I had previously tried and loved their Frankincense and Rose Moisturiser (review here) so was rather pleased to be able to try this.
Mary Elizabeth and a mother and daughter team who make a small range of products harnessing Cecilia's skills as a trained aromatherapist. The brand has one several awards and is a member of the Real Beauty Manifesto.
The Juniper and Jojoba Hand Cream comes in a plastic jar containing 50g of product, making it safe and light enough to be carried in your bag. This is quite a thick and nourishing hand cream. It is light enough to use throughout the day, but does need a moment to fully sink in. Where I think this hand cream comes into it's own, is when I apply a thicker layer at night time. Having said that, I don't find it greasy or heavy. It just leaves my hands wonderfully soft.
The formula is very nourishing and contains Jojoba and Calendula Oils, as well as Juniper, Geranium and Chamomile Essential oils. It has a lovely subtle fragrance, which is unlike anything I have come across before. I have been very impressed with the quality and effectiveness of this hand cream.
