Living Nature Nourishing Hand Cream - A Review For My Pure

I'm probably the worlds hugest hand cream lover, at least a couple of times a day, I cover my hands in a cool luxurious cream in my never ending quest for super strokeable hands. I wouldn't say I had particularly dry hands but my cuticles are prone to dryness and I occasionally get flaky patches on my fingers. I have a few firm favourite hand creams which I continually repurchase but I am always looking to try out new ones, so for one of this months My Pure products I chose the Living Nature Nourishing Hand Cream.

Packaged in quite a chunky tactile bottle, the product dispenses via a flip cap from the base of the bottle, I have to say I did find it a little stiff at first, and when Mummy Lou tried she couldn't work out how to get the cream out at all lol

As you probably already know if you've read my previous Living Nature reviews ( click here and here if you haven't ;), Living Nature is a New Zealand based brand that prides itself on the purity of their ingredients and this hand cream is no different, it even claims to be 100% natural with the preservatives, fragrance and ingredients all coming from natural and plant sources.

When you look at the ingredients listings this certainly seems to be the case. The key ingredients are active manuka honey, known for its anti-bacterial properties, and larch tree extract to prevent moisture loss. It also contains many other plant based ingredients such as olive, coconut and jojoba oils for moisture.

The cream itself has quite a creamy texture but it spreads out easily and absorbs a lot quicker than what you would expect. The skin is left matte and feeling super smooth, a feeling that actually lasts and doesn't disappear in an hour or so.

I have to say this is one of the nicest hand creams I have ever used I have had no dry patches at all in the month I have been using this. My one issue is the smell, other reviewers have sad the smell is quite mild but sorry I don't think that, it has quite a strong, distinct smell which is quite hard to place Mummy Lou said it reminded her a bit of aniseed and I think she's right there is definitely a hint of aniseed or liquorice in their somewhere, personally the smell is a bit much for me but the hand cream is so good I think I can ignore it :) The Living Nature Nourishing Hand Cream 100ml retails at £12.49 from My Pure.
