LINDEN LEAVES // Herbalist Hand + Nail TreatmentTuesday, July 15, 2014
As a nail polish-a-holic, my nails and surrounding nail beds get pretty dry and damaged, so I need a hand cream that is super nourishing and moisturising as soon as I rub it into my hands and I think I have found a new favourite in the Linden Leaves Herbalist Hand & Nail Treatment*.
I've used a couple of Linden Leaves products before and have loved them, so I had high hopes for this little hand cream and boy, has it delivered. LL is a New Zealand brand which started in Christchurch (my home town!), and they use pure and natural ingredients to create their extensive line of skincare, bath and shower products and their brand philosophy is one I think we can all get behind.
The hand cream is infused with all good things for the skin such as shea butter, cocoa butter, sesame oil, evening primrose and aloe vera to treat, heal and condition the hands and nails. This has become a bedside staple and I slather on a layer before I go to bed. Not only is the scent really lovely and calming, it gets rid of any dryness right away and continues to work its magic overnight. It is a winner during the day as well, as it sinks into the skin straightaway and it doesn't leave any greasy film to the hands. You'll be seeing this tube at the end of the month in my Empties because I only have about a quarter of it left and will definitely be buying myself another one!
Linden Leaves is available at most pharmacies around NZ and they also have a stand alone store in Parnell, Auckland. You can also shop online with shipping in NZ free for orders over $100 or a small $4.35 for orders under $100. For my overseas reader, never fear because they do ship worldwide and the rates are calculated upon check out. This 30ml tube of the Herbalist Hand + Nail Treament is only $8.99, or $29.99 for the 160ml tube here [which I'll be getting when this tube runs out!]
Have you used Linden Leaves skincare products before? Do you have any favourites? I'd love to know!
