AYur-vana Asparagus Hand Cream*, €13.35/75ml
I've recently been testing out this French hand cream; an Ayurvedic formula with nourishing organic ingredients including sesame and jojoba oils, beeswax, asparagus (shatavari) root extract and green tea extract. The packaging is bright and eye-catching and is also fully recyclable.
The spearmint essential oil gives it a fresh, minty aroma, but it isn't overpowering. The formula is fairly thick and a small amount can be spread evenly over your skin. It doesn't leave a greasy residue behind, so is perfect for daytime use.
I find this hand cream to be softening and nourishing, keeping my hands free from dry patches or irritation. It has a slightly cooling effect and I really love the scent! There really should be more mint-scented beauty products, right?!
This is the first asparagus-based skincare product I have come across, so I was quite intrigued to try it out! Have you ever tried anything similar?
