Finding Green Beauty at TK Maxx: Geoskincare Hydrating Hand & Body Cream

Geoskincare Hydrating Hand & Body Cream

I found this Geoskincare Hydrating hand & body cream at TK Maxx. It is made in New Zealand, certified organic and not tested on animals. Also this has a free from list as long as my arm - no phenoxyethanol, sls, parabens, propylene glycol, triethanolamine, isopropyl alcohol, pegs, deas, edtas, mineral oils, petrochemicals, genetically modified ingredients, artificial colours and fragrances. This cream is light and runny, shake the tube and you can hear the product move around. 

The lotion is certainly ideal for the summer months as it does not feel heavy or sticky on skin. I do wonder how well it would work on my very dry skin during winter. I have mainly been applying this to my body but it works well on hands. As you initially start to rub into skin it turns you white as illustrated in the picture below but with a bit of effort it disappears. It just takes a few extra minutes compared to other creams I own.

It is perfect for those of you who prefer a non greasy hand cream. I can continue typing after applying. The fragrance is from lavender but it does contain ylang ylang and patchouli. It is lightly scented so will not clash with other perfumed products you may apply. 

After purchasing this product Lovelula announced themselves as a stockist. The hydrating cream is priced at £13.50 for 100ml tube. I paid £7.99 at TK Maxx. Other products in the range include cleansers, toner and moisturisers.  I am not sure if I would buy this cream again but I have enjoyed testing and I love the brand's ingredient policy.

  1. I've just fallen in love with your blog :) I'm so happy I stumbled across it. I'm a massive lover of natural products, I just need to educate myself a little more about them although I know some basics. I came across you when I was googling reviews for the mild Naked shampoo. I have got it (mainly because my hair started to shed a lot more than I thought normal and I twigged it was to do with SLS, I've actually been switching back to an SLS shampoo (though for coloured hair, so I imagine it isn't as strong?) and haven't noticed much of a change so maybe it is something else).... Anyway! I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with the shampoo and I just wanted to see what others thought. What is your shampoo/conditioner of choice? :)

    P.S. Sorry for the ramble - clearly overexcited by coffee and a relatively early start for once!

    1. Hi Rachel, thanks for discovering the blog and being excited about it, that makes me smile. I use Organic Surge Moisture Boost shampoo and Giovanni 50/50 conditioner both of which I have reviewed on my blog. I tend not to test much haircare because of my sensitive scalp so since I love these two brands a lot I stick to them. I have been using both for a while now, I have thick, coloured hair. Shedding hair can also be a result of hormones and diet. I loose larger amounts at time of month or if I'm not eating as healthy as I should. Hope that helps?

  2. Great review Sarah. This is very similar to the Bently Orgainics lotion I used, how it turns white when rubbing in. I wasn't keen though, I like lotions (especially on my body) to sink straight in. Although I maybe wouldn't have minded if the smell was better!
    Through paid a good price for it though :)

    1. Agree with you I like a lotion that sinks in and takes little effort. I am glad I got a good price at TK Maxx I would be upset to have paid more, I guess import bumps up the price??? :)
