Unlike the majority of the beauty blogging community, I had never tried a NEOM product before - until last week, that is. I've lusted after their (expensive) products for quite a while now, but haven't been able to justify buying them. £38 for a candle? Psh, no thank you. But, after using this hand cream (free with this month's Harpers Bazaar magazine) I am dying to try more.
Harpers Bazaar has a choice of two NEOM hand creams - "Inspiration," a blend of violet, chamomile and cedarwood, and "Complete Bliss," a blend of rose, black pepper and lime. I picked up the former, because I have a tendency to dislike floral scented products.
The hand cream contains anti-oxidising extracts, including Acai and Argan oil. When I picked up the magazine, I wasn't particular excited about hand cream, it was more the excitement of trying a NEOM product. But this has fast become my everyday hand cream. It sinks into the skin so fast, and after using my hands feel so ridiculously soft I really can't stop stroking them (truth!). As well as this, something I wasn't sure I'd be keen on is the scent. Fair enough, I don't think it's the nicest smelling thing in the world - but it has a lovely subtle scent that's strangely relaxing and not overpowering in the slightest.
At £20 for 75ml, it doesn't come cheap, and I can see why - the quality of this explains to me why the company is called "NEOM Luxury Organics."
I'd love to say I would purchase the full 75ml (you get 50ml with the magazine) when mine runs out, but it is so expensive for a hand cream in my opinion and it would have to be an extra-special treat to myself for me to do it. Before the month end, though, I will definitely be picking up another magazine and taking full advantage of the offer.
Have you picked up this month's Harpers Bazaar for the NEOM hand cream? What did you think? Can you recommend any more of their products for me to try?
