Desk Essential: Dr Organic Royal Jelly Hand Cream

In permanent residence upon my desk; the Dr Organic Royal Jelly Anti-Aging Hand & Nail Cream. It’s a great budget buy – the tube is much bigger than a standard hand cream and comes in at a rather pleasing £6.19. It absorbs quickly but does take a minute or so for the slippery residue to disappear – ingredients include Royal Jelly Extract, Honey Extract, Almond Oil and Beeswax. It leaves my hands really very soft, and you can’t ask for much more than that, can you?

Dr Organic claims that this product has a lightening effect on age and liver spots. Not so sure on that, to be honest, and as always, “anti-aging” statements have to be taken with a pinch of salt, but this cream is definitely hydrating and pleasant to use.

    I love love love Dr Organic products, they are the best effective free from synthetic chemical products available on the high street. I have several reviews on my own blog :) I agree with you about the hand cream

    This one seems a nice one, but, I am on the hunt for a really moisturizing one, for my very dry hands. What would be your top hand creams, the ones that, hands down, do wonders.I’ve used a lot the L’occitane shea butter one and I’ve heard about the Burts bees bees wax and banana, I just don’t know which one to go for. xx

    Dr Organic is one of my favourite free from synthetic chemical brands which is available on high street. I use many products from the range (reviews on my blog) I totally agree with you about the hand cream, manuka honey is my favourite
