I am a hand cream-a-holic. I must have literally a million in my place (I am staring at four on my bedside table right this very moment) but none are nearly as luxurious as Pai Skincare's new Fragonia & Sea Buckthorn Instant Hand Therapy Cream. This stuff is absolutely fabulous on all accounts (and will be taking its stance as Queen Bee on my bedside)! First of all, I need to give a little background on Pai Skincare because if you're like me, and are new to this brand, you will be so impressed with this company! Pai Skincare is organic, only uses naturally derived ingredients, no animal testing and was created primarily for people with sensitive skin (the founder, Sarah, started this incredible company because she suffered with allergies for years). They don't use any icky stuff (I guess the technical term here would be "chemicals") and are certified by the Soil Association, which is a really big deal as this association checks to ensure that the products are produced to the highest quality standards (anyone can say they're organic, but Pai truly is). Truly unbelievable for a skincare brand to boast all this AND have amazing products at an affordable price! Back to the hand cream - this stuff is amazingly moisturizing without any greasy feeling at all. I adore the scent (think Weleda's Sea Buckthorn line, but much better quality) and I think the container is perfection (an adorable little pump perfect for bedside or handbag). As I've said before, I have super sensitive hands which are very chapped, so hand creams have a tendency to irritate me (I will be reviewing Philosophy's which I recently bought and it makes me cry in pain every time I try to use it). Pai Skincare's is the first one to make my hands soooo happy - no pain and absolutely works. I really can't say enough good things about this stuff - everyone needs to own it. Retails for $25.00 on their site and is worth every penny. I noticed they have free shipping with $50.00 and their facial moisturizers (which sound incredible) are only $38.00. A definite bargain for an organic product that actually holds up to it's promises. Thank you, Pai. I love you.
