Recently when I was shopping in House of Fraser, I wandered over to a counter that I hadn’t really given much attention to before, but found myself really drawn to particular products. It was the Rituals counter, and I found myself really liking the look of their newest ranges, so I decided to try something out (also taking full advantage of the 20% store-wide discount that was on at the time…) and let you guys know how I got on with it!
There were lots of products that enticed me, and sounded really interesting, but I decided to stick to just one product at first, to see if I thought that other products were worth me investing in. So I chose a hand lotion, because I thought it was something that I could immediately get use out of, and keep in my bag, and it was one of my favourite scents when I had had a cheeky smell of a couple of things.
The first pro of this product for me, is the fact that it’s in a metallic-like packaging, that easily dents. Now to a lot of you, this would be a con because if you don’t treat it right, it might look a bit bashed up, but for me it’s an enormous pro, because you can clearly see how much product you’ve got left, whereas with most hand creams, you have no clue until you’re finishing the product. I also think that the packaging is really unique and pretty.
Another pro for me is its consistency. This formula is unusually thick for a hand cream, (as the name boasts, it’s a balm) which again might put some people off, but if you really suffer with dry hands, or you’d just like a hand cream that really feels like a treat (as this hand balm states that it can also be used as an overnight mask) you can really feel the difference when using this one. I fee like it really lives up to the Rituals slogan, “Transform your everyday routines into meaningful rituals.”
The smell. I’ve never smelt a hand cream that is this pretty and perfume-like. It’s white lotus and ginkgo biloba, which is a leaf that contributes to normal blood circulation, which means that this balm can actually improve the condition of the skin on your hands, in the long term.
The only real con I can think of for this product is its price. Not everyone wants to spend £10 on a hand cream, but for me, I thought that the price was definitely worthwhile, because this is a much more luxurious and hard working product, unlike most unscented and watery hand lotions.
Obviously as I’ve also mentioned, a lot of the ‘pros’ for me, are actually going to be cons for other people, but for me, the only obvious con could be the price.
That’s it for my review of the Rituals Miracle Hand Balm, let me know if you enjoyed it in the comments!
Have you tried this product, or anything from Rituals? I’d love to know what you’d recommend!
