Botanicals Lemongrass & Ginger Hand Soak

Botanicals Lemongrass & Ginger Hand Soak*, £12.50/175g

I was recently given the opportunity to try out a product from Botanicals. As I'm battling with dermatitis on my hands, I went for the hand soak sample. I love the eye-pleasing packaging and the scent is so fresh, zesty and fragrant. The formula is in a loose salts form and only one teaspoon is required for each use. It is suggested to add to a warm bowl of water and soak hands for 5-10 minutes.

Dead Sea salt is renowned for its powerful healing properties, while Himalayan rock crystal contains 84 essential minerals. This hand soak helps to remove dead skin cells and soften skin, while aiding in the skin's healing process. I like to follow this up with a nourishing balm or hand cream. I think this product would also work well as a foot soak and I particularly enjoyed adding it to a bath, along with extra Himalayan salts and a bath oil to create a really uplifting, detoxing bathing experience. I think this would make a lovely addition in a beauty salon, as a pre-manicure hand treatment.

  1. This sounds amazing. I get quite dry hands when it is cold and I often suffer with bad hang nails which get quite sore so looking after my hands is very important to me! I might have to give this a go!!
