Neal’s Yard Remedies Geranium & Orange Hand Cream* came free with the June’s issue of Marie Claire and I could not resist buying it, being a fan of Neal’s Yard Remedies for many years. I’ve been using it for months now as my main hand cream so I thought it’s about time to write this review.

This natural hand cream has a pleasant scent, I can definitely smell orange and geranium comes out more like a subtle, background scent. The scent is a little bit strong but I do love it so I don’t mind.
Geranium & Orange hand cream is a thicker consistency than the lotion and it spreads easily, leaving hands feeling nice and soft.
I haven’t been suffering from extremely dry hands so I cannot say how it would work on those, but for slightly dry hands it works great, leaving them nourished and moisturised without greasiness.
Overall, this is a great natural hand cream as it contains premium ingredients but I would want to try other similar hand creams so I could compare them before deciding what my go-to natural hand cream would be.
