SEAMS is a relatively new hand cream and this review is long overdue! I have been trying this for a while and I was unsure about it as I love my L’Occitane hand cream but this… well. Read on!
“SEAMS was born from fashion and created as the ultimate seamstress for your hands, with a unique blend of ingredients to give your hands and nails everything they need. This restorative hand treatment lightens age spots, repairs and delivers long lasting hydration. This ultra-light non greasy formula absorbs fast and is touch safe when handling fabric.”
“Shea Butter protects and nourishes, Macadamia Nut Oil improves suppleness and softens, Garden Cress evens skin tone and fades and prevents age spots, Keratin strengthens nails, Fragonia gives anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial protection and Glycerin heals burns, bites and cuts.”
This hand cream is.. great! It doesn’t feel greasy at all. The fragrance is really strong and initially, I didn’t like it, but it grew on me. It sinks in really quickly and was more intensive than I anticipated for something that soaked in so quickly. It was great because I didn’t have to sit there waiting all day for it to sink in. Hurrah!
It didn’t sting my hands either. I thought when I smelled it “this is gonna hurt” but it didn’t affect my cuts at all. I didn’t really notice healing time being improved or anything but I have no idea how long they would have taken anyway. I always have cuts on my hands. Some are magic, some are kitty-induced! But I had no problem using this with fresh scratches and cuts.
A little goes a long way! Which slightly makes up for its higher price tag of £9.50 for 5oml of product. It’s not /that/ high a price but it doesn’t LOOK like a luxuary item. The packaging, as you can see, is fairly plain and un-exciting. The product is more important though. Had I encountered it in a shop, I wouldn’t have picked it up based on appearance but the formula is good stuff.
I also noticed it was equally effective if my hands were drier or less-so – and you can use it frequently too. It was nice on my cuticles, I noticed a reduction in my need for cuticle oil which was a bonus.
You can buy a tube online, here for £9.50. They also do a trio gift bag for £25.
