[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] While we are on a sanitising roll, I thought I’d include the new hand cream from Grown Alchemist, the brand that focuses on natural actives to keep skin healthy. It’s a brand that’s rather complex in its approach yet simplistic in design. In a nutshell, Grown Alchemist formulas are based around nutrients that skin can work best with meaning that cells renew in a healthy way which in turn should lead to vibrant skin.
In fact, Grown Alchemist reminds me in looks – and some scents – of Aesop, another Australian brand (I’m always a bit thrilled to find it in hotel washrooms). If you like a real drill down of ingredients that will lead you on to further research (Terpinen-4-ol anyone?) and therefore an expansion of your beauty ingredient knowledge, it’s for you.
This hand cream feels very premium (and it’s quite reasonably priced) – it’s luxurious, immediately hydrating and softening and smells quite beautiful. Tea tree, cedarwood and ylang ylang is a grounding combination that feels perfect for this time of year. From what I can see, the tea tree is the anti-bacterial element so you can’t think of it as a sanitiser, but the ingredient list reveals several beautiful oils such as camellia, lavender and tangerine. Feel Unique has it for £15 HERE instead of £18 elsewhere and if you’re in the mood for some proper pampering for your hands, this will tick the box.
