Using a good quality hand cream is a must.
When Studio Botanic reached out to me with a beauty product perfectly fitting for The Beauty Spyglass, I couldn’t resist. Their botanical hand cream is blended with avocado oil, known for its intense hydration and vegan waxes which increase the skin’s natural protection process. Citrus extracts maintain the correct pH, fight bacteria and give a subtle fresh scent.
Taking good care of our hands is paramount, particularly with winter fast approaching. If you’re anything like me, having residue left on the hands certainly doesn’t encourage the use hand cream. Often, everyday tasks can be made difficult or frustrating with greasy hands. It’s not always easy to find a balance so my usual preference is to apply a good layer at bedtime instead.
None of that with Studio Botanic, it’s different…
…And so refreshing to apply a hydrating cream which is fully absorbed within seconds. From experience, this type of nourishing cream can take a while to absorb but with Studio Botanic Cream my hands feel silky soft, hydrated and completely free of any residue.
I regularly suffer from chapped hands during the colder months, and so using a product which I can integrate into my daily life has been invaluable. It’s a good size to pop into my handbag for on-the-go applications too. Applying hand cream more frequently has really helped improve the general condition of my hands, as well as my cuticles which tend to become dry if I’m not careful.
Mandarin and peppermint oils help to regulate the skin’s pH and give a subtle scent which dissipates after a few minutes.
In terms of the packaging – it’s minimal, yet effective, with a unisex appeal. The 50ml tube is made from metal, as opposed to plastic, allowing for you to fold the end over as you progress through the cream, ensuring none is wasted.
Studio Botanic recommend applying a hazelnut-sized amount (about 1ml) to the backs of clean hands and rub together. Continue to distribute the cream over the entire hands and wrists. Massage into nails and cuticles and use as often as required throughout the day.
Studio Botanic claim its product packaging symbolises the combination of traditional and modern aspects, of nature and technology.
“A perfect mix of protection and care, without being greasy”
German-based Studio Botanic Cosmetics is a cruelty-free brand, formulating its products without the use of mineral oils, parabens, animal derivatives and unnecessary colourings. With such a wonderful ethos, I’m very impressed with both the product and the ethics of this brand. Particularly the use of local, social and environmentally friendly production and pure plant-based ingredients producing a cream which really delivers.
A product created in harmony with people, animals and nature is so appealing to me being a lover of conscious beauty.
Studio Botanic’s website is packed with information regarding their ethically sourced products and well worth having a browse. There’s also a Cold Cream available which may be of interest.
