Handmade Naturals Sensitive Face Cream



I am in a fickle mood at the moment when it comes to face cream. I still like Dr Organic Pomegranate cream and Antipodes Rejoice but I wanted to change it up a little. I enjoy testing and expanding my knowledge, it means I can offer better advice when someone asks me for a recommendation.

In my March Skincare Haul I mentioned buying samples from an old favourite, Handmade Naturals. I chose not to buy full sizes because I could not decide between the Sensitive and Replenishing Face Cream. I did end up passing along the Replenishing cream because I disliked the fragrance; I’m extremely fickle with rose scents. The Sensitive cream is unscented so that suits my fussy tastes. Whilst there are no essential oils there is of course natural aroma from the ingredients in the formulation. 

Ingredients: purified water, virgin organic shea butter (butyrospermun parkii), unrefined rosehip seed oil (rosa moschata), golden jojoba oil (simmondsia chinensis), peach kernel oil (prunus persica), emulsifying wax, aspen bark extract, vegetable glycerin, vitamin E oil (tocopherol) – suitable for Vegans & Cruelty Free

The Sensitive face cream is very light in comparison to my Dr Organics one but it does contain ingredients which nourish skin. I suspect during colder weather I would need something a little heavier but this is perfectly adequate at this time of year. This cream sinks in quickly and leaves my skin feeling peachy soft and smooth. Sensitive Face Cream would be suitable for most skin types but particularly those who have intolerance to essential oils or who are pregnant. The packaging for the full size and travel size is an airless pump which will please those that do not like dipping fingers into a jar. It costs £11.50 for 50ml or £4 for 15ml (travel/sample size pictured above). Handmade Naturals has a lovely range of products and I have previously reviewed the Face Cleansing Oil, should that interest you click here.

Have you tried products from Handmade Naturals? Do you like creams without essential oils?
