Silkka Garden Apothecary Worker Bee Hands

February 26, 2015


O kanadski znamki Silkka Garden Apothecary sem že pisala - tukaj o maslu za telo, tukaj pa o čistilnem maslu za obraz. Danes pa je na vrsti hranilna krema za roke Worker Bee Hands. Ta majhna kremica je izdelana le iz šestih naravnih sestavin. Preprosta a prijetna za uporabo. Vsebuje karitejevo maslo, ki je znano po svojih hranilnih lastnostih, mandljevo olje, čebelji vosek, in eterična olja sivke, grenivke in poprove mete.
Worker Bee Hands ima teksturo balma in ne "navadne" kreme za roke, kar se lahko vidi že po sestavinah, saj ni narejen na vodni osnovi. Ima zelo prijeten, svež vonj po meti in sivki. Balm je dobro hranilen in super za mrzlo, zimsko vreme. Najraje ga nanesem le na zgornji del roke in na obnohtno kožico, dlan in blazinice prstov pa podnevi raje izpustim, ker je oljnat in se ne vpije hitro. Zato ga bolj kot podnevi raje uporabljam za nočno nego. Kožo nahrani, jo naredi mehko in gladko. 

Edina negativna lastnost je majhna in precej ozka embalaža. Malce me moti, ker moram balm zajeti z nohtom in ne z blazinico prsta, ker sicer gre vse za noht. Balm mi je všeč, a če sem iskrena vam bolj kot kremo za roke priporočam maslo za telo, ker ima podobno sestavo in enako nahrani kožo, če ne celo bolje. Je pa res, da je prav zaradi prisrčne majhne embalaže več kot odličen za v torbico, kar pa je tudi velik plus. :)

I've already written about the Canadian brand Silkka Garden Apothecary, here about the Body Butter and here about the Cleansing Balm. I love them both, but today is time to review the Worker Bee Hands. This cute little hand cream consist of only six ingredients, Shea Butter which is super nourishing and a really amazing ingredient, Sweet Almond Oil, Beeswax and essential oils of Lavender, Grapefruit and Peppermint.  

Worker Bee Hands has a consistency of a balm and it's not like your "typicall" hand cream, which you can also see from the ingredient list. It has a lovely fresh scent of peppermint and lavender. Balm is nourishing and especially nice for cold winter weather. I like using it on the tops of my hands and on my cuticles, but I rather leave out the palms of my hands and fingertips because the balm is oily and it doesn't sink quickly into the skin. That's why I rather use it in the evening than throughout the day. Balm nourishes my skin and leaves it soft and smooth. 

The negative thing for me is the small and narrow packaging. I'm a little bit annoyed that I have to pick it up with a nail and not a fingertip because the balm can get under the nail, and I really dislike the feeling of that. Other than that I like this hand cream/balm but to be perfectly honest, I'm more into the body balm which has a similar ingredient list and works great at nourishing your skin, if not even better. But it's true that this cute little jar is more than perfect for carrying around in a hand bag, which is also a big plus. :)


With love,

 P.S. After writing this post I headed over to Silkka website to get some links and found out that this product is super affordable - only 5$! And I just have to say that it's most definitely worth the price! :)

  2. Really nice but sounds super rich. Rather to use this kind of products in the evening as well! But yes, I totally understand what you mean with the small pot. I have the same (from a different brand) and it is a bit a struggle too!. x
