Many moons ago, I wrote about a brand called (seed) on the blog Beauty Debutante. Unfortunately the post isn't available anymore but I was reminiscent about it on Twitter last year & the brand reached out to me to see if I'd like to try their Hand Cream. Then life got ridiculously busy and it's been sitting here on my desk saying "USE ME". Finally, tonight after noticing how dry my hands have become, I decided to grab the bottle and USE IT.
First off, (seed) was launched in 2009 by Rebecca and Benjamin Gournay because they wanted to focus on making healthier choices. I originally tried out their soap & body lotions and overall I was happy with it. (Be nice, this photo is 5 and a half years old.)
The Citrus lotion was a great wake up lotion each morning and the Lavender Sage was great for when I was ready to wind down in bed. The soap was a neat addition to my routine, although I'll admit, I didn't use it until it was gone. I'm more of a body wash person.
Body wash you say? (seed) launched their own body wash in 2015 along with new lip oils and custom blend body care. Want to see more? Check out their website!
Back to the Hand Cream! So (seed) says that it's rich and creamy without any greasy after-feel. This was pretty important to me because I type a LOT at work, and I can't have an oily keyboard. Also I hate the greasy feel that happens with many lotions.
So far so good! Then came to rub in and test. I was excited to feel that my hands felt moisturized without feeling greasy. I even put more on my hands just to make sure I had put enough.
(seed) is paraben free, cruelty free, soy free, phthalate free, gluten free and does not contain any artifical colors. As you can see on the front of the bottle, it's grape seed enriched as well. The lavender was just the right amount of flowery goodness scent and I found myself sniffing my hands (as strange as I'm sure that looks) because it truly is relaxing.
And the cost? Only $8.95 for a 3.5 fl oz (100 mL) bottle. When you only need about a dime for both hands, this lotion is going to last you a good while for great quality.
