Neom Organic Hand Cream "Inspiration"


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?

  2. This is really expensive for a handcream. I was obsessed with trying out NEOM when i saw the blogging community plastered with posts and reviews raving about the candles etc etc, but when i smelt them in store, i really disliked their scents. I think my two favourite handcreams are from L'occitane when i want to treat myself....and Soap and glory handfood when i'm on a budget :) Thanks for sharing and reviewing~xx

    1. It really is expensive. I know what you mean about their scents, as gorgeous as their products and packaging are, I've sniffed them out in Fenwick and none have really stood out to me. I've never tried the L'occitane hand cream but really want to! xx

    1. Mine too! I think the fact that they don't produce any black soot is one of the reasons why I'm interested! x

  5. I absolutely LOVE Neom! Their candles are just wonderful and although very expensive, they're a truly luxury treat. I received a gift set for my birthday and have enjoyed using everything in it :) Love this hand cream too, I picked up the rose one but tempted to get this one too! x
