“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.”
- Henri Nouwen
Every day, our hands do so much of work for us. I will be so unfair to my hands if I only keep treating my face. Moreover, at work, after our face, hands are the most exposed part. And I would just hide my face if I have dry hands to shake or to work on my laptop. Also frequent hand washes and the A.C. make them look so scaly and imperfect. A good hand cream is a must in your bag or office mug. In my case it’s “NATIO- Spa with Organics Heavenly Hand Cream”.

Company Claims: Divine protection to soften hands and strengthen nails. The heavenly, non-greasy cream helps address the signs of ageing particular to the hands by helping to reduce pigmentation and age spots. Leaves skin feeling silky, soft and supple.
Key Ingredients: Aloe Vera, Ginseng (has stress busting qualities), Sesame Oil (pls check out its qualities in my first blog here), Sweet Almond Oil, Lemon Peel Oil, Lavender Oil
Skin Types: For all skin types, mine is dry bdw.
Price: 9 Australian Dollars for 90 gm
My Verdict: The cream is white in color and thick in consistency. I am absolutely in love with the fragrance but I am also sure that it doesn’t have a universal appeal. If you have used “Remmy” Facials, then you are already familiar with the fragrances. It is very similar to Remmy massage cream. Yes, typical soothing spa product fragrance. It is definitely non greasy and makes my skin smooth. But the dryness is away for a very few hours say, 2-3 hours or less at times. The packaging is smart and comes in a tube with a flip flop cover. The tube is froggy green in color depicting a Green product. I apply it after every hand wash and it’s still going ages. Lasts a long way. Also I am glad that it’s completely organic. But I can’t really comment on whether it has strengthened my nails or not.
