I was delighted to be selected to review this Lemon Butter Hand Smoothie from Odylique. I have to be honest and admit that I hadn’t actually heard of this brand prior to receiving this product, so I was interested to learn what Odylique are all about. It turns out that their product range is right up my street and I couldn’t believe I hadn’t found them before! Their products are 100% natural origin, 93% organic, tested on sensitive skin volunteers not animals, no palm oil and are vegan friendly. Wow!
Products that promise NO artificial ingredients, parabens, petrochemicals, common allergen tree nut oils, wheat, soy or dairy are of great interest to me as I have a husband and little boy who suffer terribly with eczema, very sensitive skin and Severe nut allergies. I am always on the lookout for and trialing products that help with their skin conditions and that suit their skin while at the same time not irritating other conditions.
Odylique (the genius of nature) have over 30 years experience caring for reactive skin, so this product would be welcomed in our household for sure!.
First impressions while unpacking the product are that it is nicely boxed, lots of information on the box so know what you are getting with the product inside.
Opening the box I find a 60ml tube of hand smoothie with clear flip top opening to dispense the product.
Directions on the packaging state to massage into hands and cuticles for smooth, supple skin.
The product smells amazing, really fresh and zesty. I squeezed some smoothie onto the back of my hand and began massaging into my hands. I have to say that you really don’t need to put a lot on your hands though as I think I did use too much the first time! It was quite liquid and light, more so than I am used to with a hand product but this turns out to be a good thing as it is easily absorbed and doesn’t clog up the pores, essential with sensitive skins. As long as using sparingly this product does absorb quickly, no greasiness and left with beautifully moisturised, soft supple skin which smells amazing too – win win!!
My little boy has very sore and irritated skin on his hands so I was a little wary of him trying this hand smoothie, but I needn’t have been. He did say it was a little stingy the first time he tried to apply it, but he used it for a few days sparingly and it really made a difference to his skin. He liked how nice it smelled, which for him is a big thing as he is used to the unscented medicated lotions and potions he has on prescription. We shall continue to use this hand smoothie for him and see if it helps him keep his skin hydrated and prevent his eczema flare ups. We have definitely seen good results so far with it though. With the Covid 19 pandemic, effective skin hydration is needed more so than ever with all the extra hand washing and sanitising required to go about our usual daily routines. We have been quite concerned about the September return to school for our son as we have no idea how we will manage his skin conditions with all the extra requirements in place. Finding an effective moisturiser is very important in assisting with this and I think we have found the key to this so we are very grateful!
We shall all keep using this product and I am going to order some other products I have seen on the Odylique website to try and see if they suit us as much as this hand smoothie does.
Please don’t be put off by price, I did think at first that £12 for a small tube of hand cream was expensive, that was until I used the product and discovered what an amazing product it is! You get what you pay for at the end of the day and this is very much worth every penny. Having spent the past 8 years battling with my sons terrible eczema I am amazed to find something other than prescription medications and lotions that actually work for him. He loves the product and the bonus is we can all use it and benefit from it, so he doesn’t feel singled out. Having a twin sister and both being in the same class at school it will make life a lot easier that they can share this cream and in turn hopefully reduce the level of fun being poked at him by classmates too.
Thank you for making such a lovely product and I will tell everyone I know about this product range!
Can’t wait to try out other products now 🙂
