After a friend of mine heard that I wasn’t the biggest fan of Cath Kidston clothing, she thought it would be oh so hilarious to get me something that was Cath Kidston the last time we met up. Lucky for me however she bought me the wild rose hand balm.
Intrigued as ever, I couldn’t wait to see what kind of beauty product the brand had bought out. I’ll be completely honest and say that I wasn’t expecting much. When I got round to opening the tub, I was surprised to find that the contents of the tub were extremely thick and stuck together in a lump.
I only noticed later that it was called a hand balm and not a cream and my expectations were immediately surpassed as I knew this would be some serious moisturising stuff; and boy was I not wrong!
I’m not too fond of rose scented beauty products so I wasn’t overly excited when I smelt the balm. Still, it’s not too overpowering. The packaging is in classic good old Cathy K style. Pastel pink with a floral deisgn on the front…surprisingly not roses!
The balm contains shea butter, glycerin and vitamin E to help soothe and protect your hands. You really have to work it into your hands because of it’s thick consistency but it’s not a bad thing, because you can definitely feel it being absorbed into your skin. An even bigger plus is that it contains no parabens or sulphates. Full of natural goodness, it’s definitely a fantastic product for those awful winter days that are coming up! Cath Kidston has definitely won me over with this product!
What do you think of Cath Kidston? Did you know the brand now does beauty products? What do you use to moisturise your hands?
