Weleda Citrus hand cream

Description

Intensive care for dry hands and brittle nails.
Rich and refreshing daily protection for hands which need extra care.
The lemon tree lives a long time, and it has a unique ability to flower, fruit and grow all at once. Weleda knows this makes organic lemon oil the perfect ingredient for a cream that replenishes while it refreshes. The invigorating citrus scent is entirely natural and the rich cream protects your hands from dryness, softens skin and protects brittle nails with carnauba wax and lanolin. Hands up who feels better!

This is about my fourth tube of this great hand cream and the only reason I have not bought more is that I have a number of other hand creams to use up before I can justify buying any more!

It is a great smelling, very rich and nourishing all natural but not vegan as it has lanolin and beeswax in it.

Weakest points
This hand cream is super rich and some may find it makes their hands feel greasy but they are not if you apply just a small amount and work the hand cream in properly. Because all the ingredients are natural oils they will soak into the skin rather than sitting on top like petroleum based oils do so they sort of ‘feed’ the skin and help it to rebuild itself rather than just applying a ‘raincoat’ to the surface.
Summary
This comes in a metal tube like a toothpaste tube which keeps the contents safe and is meant to be better for recycling than plastic though it is heavier in weight for transporting. The tube is inside a cardboard box which prevents the tube getting damaged and rectangular shapes are easier to store and transport . Personally I find metal tubes harder to use that plastic as they crease and with a plastic tube I can store them on their lid and the contents is always at the open end. I also cut my plastic tubes when they are ‘finished’ as I find a lot left in there which I can then use.

This smells great really fresh and uplifting and that is the first thing that strikes me when I use this the next thing that hits me is how rich this hand cream is. You need the smallest amount as it is thick and quite hard to massage into your skin. I find a small amount less than a petit pois is the right amount to give me beautifully moisturised and protected hands, any more and I am there for ages massaging it into my arms as well.

Once it is all soaked into my skin I can really feel how soft my hands are and they feel rally well moisturised and this feeling lasts for hours even after washing my hands . I apply this before tackling chores like hand washing clothes, hand washing dishes and cleaning the floor as well as gardening as it protects my hands from the harsh chemicals . I apply again after cleaning up from those tasks.

Your hands can show your age even more than your face as they are constantly exposed to the elements and also we do so much with our hands and tend to neglect looking after them. While I cannot turn back the clock on all the damage already done I can try to stop things getting any worse and delay further damage by applying protection and moisturiser to my hands as often as I remember.
