A highly effective moisturising hand product, this balm is oil-based rather than water-based which means it delivers deeper moisturisation. It smells AMAZING too – a heady blend of sweet orange and ylang-ylang essential oils. You only need a tiny amount to do your hands, and I’ve been using on my feet too as an overnight treatment. The product takes a while to work into the hands, but once it is absorbed the end result is incredibly soft, smooth hands with a beautiful sheen to the skin.
Rebecca’s review pretty much sums up how I feel about this product as well. It looks great, it smells great, it IS great! This Made for Life by Spiezia Organics Moisturising Hand Balm is a very rich balm indeed. Thanks to the olive oil and beeswax your hands are moisturised and soft within seconds. The hand balm is about £20 but it’s totally worth the investment. Because the product is not water-based (which most hand creams are) you only need a very small amount and it will last much longer.
Hand creams can be one of my worst nightmares. As I’ve mentioned before, I suffer from eczema and sensitive skin, and over the years I have found that my worst cases can be on my hands. I have to be extremely picky about what kind of products I decide to use on my hands. The Spiezia Organics Moisturizing Hand Balm is very potent and has a thick texture, but not easily absorbing into my skin. The smell is wonderful but I found this Hand Balm to be quite harsh on my eczema, causing my hands to itch and become dry.
