SEAMS Hand Cream Review
Reviewed by Julie Hayward
The delivery for SEAMS hand cream arrived swiftly in a jiffy
bag package, containing a cardboard box with the SEAMS logo on the outside. On
opening the first thing that caught my attention was bold capitals HANDS ON!
HAND CREAM followed by the tag line ‘mends, moisturises and soothes dry,
hardworking hands’. Thus leaving me in no doubt what the package contained and
what the product was for. They also usefully added the website,
SEAMSBEAUTY.CO.UK should I want to search more products and place future
Logo white tissue paper kept the product secure in the package.
I then found a rectangular, sturdy, primrose yellow coloured box, the card used
is slightly textured and of a good quality, making it perfect to withstand long
term use. I can see this happily standing in my bathroom cabinet, on my
dressing or bedside table. If I needed to use this on the go, I am sure the box
would help prevent it from accidently being squeezed out in my bag.
The box gave me all the information I needed, as there was
writing on all four sides. Along with the SEAMS logo I was intrigued by a line
drawing of a thimble with a needle and cotton on the front face, it also
highlighted the three main ingredients; shea butter, macadamia oil and fragonia
oil. I also noted it contained 75ml\2.54fl.oz. On one side of the box is a list
of the qualities that the cream will help to do; moisturise, soften, protect,
even skin tone, strengthen, hydrate and comfort. Along with natural ingredients
that will promote this, for example ‘even skin tone with swiss garden cress’.
The other side helped me to understand the thimble drawing
as it explains that the hand cream was created for couturiers to soothe their
dry pinpricked hands, without leaving an oily residue on fabrics. They also go
onto state its main qualities, light texture, absorbs quickly, non-greasy. The
rear of the box has how to use instructions and a full list of ingredients,
finally it tells me that the product is manufactured in the UK along with its
head office address and website.
The box has a striking black interior again alluding to quality.
The tube itself is white, a practical design that is wipe-clean and squeezable.
It gives me identical information as the box.
The fragrance is clean and fresh but not overly perfumed. My
first use I think I squeezed out more than was needed and it took longer to
absorb, however my future usage, I have carefully used the small amount that is
necessary and it did absorb quickly leaving very little oily residue. I am
confident with such a small amount needed that this product would last a long
time even with frequent applications throughout the day and at bedtime.
Therefore, I think it is good value for money as a little goes a long way. I am
hopeful that it fulfils its claims especially to hydrate to reduce the visible
signs of ageing. My hands certainly feel silky smooth, soft and moisturised. I
would highly recommend if you want to look after hardworking hands.
RRP: £14 (75ml)
