Speed Review: Skin Blossom Care & Protect Hand Cream

I love discovering new brands so I was delighted to stumble across the fabulously named, Skin Blossom during the course of my research into organic beauty. What's more, I like to support small businesses.
Certified by the Soil Association, Skin Blossom was started in 2007 with the mission of creating affordable, safe and effective skincare as they believe that everyone is entitle to healthy, beautiful skin. The range of skin, hair and body products is made using the maximum possible certified organic ingredients and is, of course, free from nasties such as petro chemicals, DEA, SLS and artificical fragrance & colour.
I was sent Care & Protect Hand Cream to try which contains 92% organic ingredients.

At £5.35 for 60ml, I feel that Skin Blossom Care & Protect Hand Cream offers excellent value for money given its organic credentials. The tube is a handy size which is as easy to throw into a handbag as it is to keep in your car or desk drawer.
My only gripe would be that, to me, the word "protect" in skincare suggests that there should be some form of SPF included. It's notoriously difficult to create an organic SPF so I can let this go, despite being slightly disappointed. I also wouldn't describe it as a cream. It's a wonderfully lightweight lotion which is easily absorbed and didn't leave a greasy residue, something I really hate in a hand cream so this was definitely a bonus.
It's delicatly scented with rose geranium which is pleasant without being overbearing.
I found it nourishing, enjoyable to use and would recommend this.
