Beauty Product Review – Sierra Bees Hand Cream
It’s winter, and the weather outside is still cold and freezing. We usually take a good care of our face by applying moisturizer and homemade face masks, but we tend to forget that our hands need some love too. Our hands often get dry and cracked in winter and taking a proper care of them can be a little tricky because whatever we put on them gets washed off every time that we wash our hands. So the answer is using a hand cream that’s natural and gets absorbed easily and that cream is Sierra Bees, Hand Cream with Manuka Honey.
The description of Sierra Bees, Hand Cream with Manuka Honey is:
Our concentrated, moisture-rich Unscented Hand Cream helps protect and rehydrate dry, damaged skin. Cetearyl Olivate & Sorbitan Olivate (from Olive Oil), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride & Shea Butter have been included to nourish and moisturize your hands – making them feel Silky Smooth. We’ve added Manuka Honey, imported directly from New Zealand, to help protect your skin. This unique formulation will leave your hands feeling moisturized, soft and utterly pampered.
So here’s the review of Sierra Bees, Hand Cream with Manuka Honey:
Product / Quality:
Sierra Bees, Hand Cream with Manuka Honey is a natural hand cream that is suitable for all skin types, it’s gentle and really moisturizing. It’s texture is light and it absorbs very easily. After a few minutes your hands won’t feel greasy at all, and you can do your chores without worrying about smearing hand cream all over the place. It’s especially great for wintertime when our hands get dry and cracked. Also because it’s texture is light, a small drop goes a long way and you don’t need much cream to make your hands soft and moisturized.
We can’t really say that Sierra Bees, Hand Cream with Manuka Honey is 100% unscented, it actually has a scent. Its scent is hard to describe, it’s something between honey, citrus and herbs mixed together. Some people find the scent nice while some people might find the scent unpleasant, but all in all the scent isn’t pleasant at all and if you don’t have too sensitive sense of smell you’ll probably like it. Also the scent lingers on the skin couple of hours so your hands will smell faintly of honey and citrus until you wash your hands.
The price of Sierra Bees, Hand Cream with Manuka Honey is relatively affordable for a hand cream, given in mind that you’re buying natural hand cream with organic ingredients. You can find it on iHerb and the price of Sierra Bees, Hand Cream with Manuka Honey is $4.95 for 2.5 oz (71 g). Maybe it’s not the cheapest hand cream out there, but for a natural hand cream it’s definitely worth it.
