Today I am going to review Mary Elizabeth Hand Cream and Gentle Face Scrub which I have been sent very kindly to try and review on my blog. This brand is very new to me and have not tried any of their products earlier. As you may know Hand Cream and Lip Balms are two things I cannot live without them. I love to try and collect new hand creams and lip balms. Mary Elizabeth skincare is a multi-award winning, British, natural skincare brand. Perfect for busy, discerning women who care about what they put on their skin. Each of their natural skin care products is packed with vitamin-rich plant oils and organic essential oils and every ingredient is carefully chosen for their skincare properties. Mary Elizabeth products are free from Sodium Laurel Sulphate (SLS), Parabens, Parfums, Colorants, Paraffin wax or DEA. This all means that they will be kinder to your skin.
A little bit about Mary Elizabeth Natural Skincare….. “We are mother and daughter, Cecilia Rathe and Claire Huntley, and we are the Founders and Directors of Mary Elizabeth (the brand name is a combination of our middle names!)Cecilia was inspired to start making natural skincare after she was diagnosed with skin cancer in 2010. Originally a solicitor by profession, Cecilia is also a trained aromatherapist and a Member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists and so she really appreciates the many beneficial skincare properties of natural plant oils and essential oils. We offer a modern approach to natural beauty, with high quality, beautiful products which really work! Our aim is to simplify the skincare regime of busy women who live a healthy lifestyle and want “greener” skincare. Our products do not, and never will, contain ingredients which are tested on animals.”
The packaging of Mary Elizabeth Skincare products is very simple yet beautiful. Both Hand Cream and Face Scrub come in lightweight plastic jar and contains 50g product. You can easily carry them with you in your handbag while travelling and cap of the jar seals tightly so no worry about leaking product and any mess.
Mary Elizabeth Juniper and Jojoba Hand Cream – £10.00
This fabulously vitamin enriched cream combines Jojoba and Calendula Oils with Juniper, Geranium and Chamomile and leaves your skin beautifully smooth, softened and protected from the elements without any oily residue. I have tried so many brands hand creams by now. I keep them on nightstand, dressing table, above fridge, in my handbag, in bathroom, one near to sofa they are like everywhere in house. I have been using this hand cream since last few weeks. It smells amazing jojoba and calendula oil as soon as you open the jar gorgeous smell comes out of it. LOVING it!
Mary Elizabeth Juniper and Jojoba Hand Cream is quite thick in consistency which is perfect to me, I don’t love hand creams have thin or bit runny texture. This hand cream sinks into my hands quickly and does not leave residue behind and my hands are left feeling silky smooth with no greasiness at all. If you have dry hands then believe me it moisturise them so well.
Mary Elizabeth Camellia & Geranium Gentle Face Scrub – £14.00
Rich in Vitamin A this super moisturising face scrub is so gentle that it can be used every day to cleanse and brighten your complexion. Camellia Oil and Avocado Oil combine with Geranium and Lavender to soothe, smooth and renew your skin. Massage gently onto face, avoiding the eye area. Dampen skin and massage again then rinse off with warm water. Can be used once daily.
This scrub is very gentle on skin and you can use it everyday as per them but I only use once a week. This is a lovely gentle facial scrub and does not feel harsh or scratchy on skin. It has very mild pleasant scent which is not overpowering at all. The texture of this scrub is just perfect not too runny or thick. After using it I can see my skin looks so fresh, clean, glowy and healthy. It removes any dead skin on face. It does not make my skin dry or oily. All in one it is lovely gentle scrub. I have not noticed any specific difference between this scrub and other scrubs that I use in my weekly routine they also give same result like this scrub.
