A good hand cream is not easy to get. I used a lot of them, different brands, different prices, not consistent quality though.Rarely I buy the same hand cream twice.
This one is definitely worth to buy. I was happy to use it but it finished way too quickly.
As you probably know olive oil helps to keep moisture in the skin. In many countries where olive oil is produced women use it as a main skin care product.
Recently I bought an olive oil soap from South of France, with an excellent ingredients list. I love to use olive oil in my cooking and my favourite beauty remedies are the one I can eat. One of my Malesian work collegue told me that in Malaysia most women use on body olive oil during pregnancy, to avoid the stretch marks on the tummy.
Have you ever tried to apply after the shower olive oil to your skin? You can start with a small area to test-lets say arms only. It does not smell badly, but you may feel a bit like a salad bowl:D Just kidding. Give it a try as olive oil is a kitchen beauty remedy.
This olive oil hand cream soaks in nicely and quickly, leaving soft skin and light protection film. I use it only for the night and in the morning hands are extremely soft. It is again Balea, dm drogerie product, but what can I do that this brand has so many good cosmetics?:)
Balea olive oil cream has smooth consistence, not too liquid, not too butter-like, just the right one. The only downside I experienced is the bottle closing-it is hard to open it without breaking the nails. It holds simply too strong. I left is not fully closed to avoid breaking my nails.
Its scent is just lovely: an olive oil mixed with green tea scent.
It is one of my favourite hand creams and one of two I come back to. The other one is made in Poland. I will add the review of it at some point.
