Le Couvent des Minimes

Birchbox Breakdown

While we don’t all necessarily have a green thumb, we’re all familiar with the discomfort that comes with dry hands. Luckily, there’s Le Couvent des Minimes’ rich Gardener’s Hand Healer, designed with gardeners and DIY enthusiasts in mind, but intended for anyone seeking some much-needed TLC for her digits. The cream nourishes hands, healing dry and damaged skin. It also acts as an invisible glove, shielding against further cracking and chapping.

How it Works

The salve offers a high concentration of shea butter, which repairs, regenerates, and protects skin. In addition, a cocktail of seven plants provides a host of other benefits: Mimosa repairs, verbena revitalizes, rosemary serves as an antioxidant, lemon balm offers antibacterial protection, chamomile and marshmallow soothe irritation and inflammation, and marigold serves as an antiseptic.

How to Use

Massage a thin layer of cream into hands. Reapply liberally, especially after working outside.

LOVE this hand cream!
Purchased

This stuff smells AMAZING, absorbs quickly, and does a great job of moisturizing my hands, arms, and anywhere else. I will definitely be buying it again. It has a lemongrass, herbal kind of smell. Very fresh and not too strong.

Works Wonders

I use hand sanitizer and wash my hands all day long and they get so dried out. This stuff healed my hands and kept them soft through the winter.

Great for hard to moisturize skin
Purchased

I and my daughter both have super dry skin and my hands are always a mess thanks to water and cleaning fluid, etc. This hand cream works miracles! It is a little greasy feeling when you first apply but it wears wonderfully and leaves my skin soft and moist for hours.

You don't need to garden to need this hand cream.
Purchased

This hand cream may be a favorite of those who abuse their hands digging in dirt and pruning roses (oh, those thorns!), but why should they be the only ones to benefit from this top-notch healer. My idea of gardening is buying a potted plant at the grocery store. Nevertheless, I rely on the Gardener's Hand Healer to keep my hands smooth and hydrated. You will, too.

Yes

I love this hand cream. It isn't heavy but isn't too thin either. It is the perfect texture. It doesn't sit in the insides of your fingers like some hand creams do for me. It glides on well and has a very light clean scent. I could use this everyday and I would still love it every time.

Love!

Received this as a sample in my box and absolutely LOVED it! The scent is so great and was majorly bummed when I ran out! Will definitely be purchasing this!

Powerful!
Purchased

This is my go-to hand cream. If I could get a vat of this stuff, I would. It is ultra moisturising without being greasy or too slippery. I wish I had this in my early 20s, my hands might not be showing my age ^_~

Great product, but expensive
Purchased

The product works really well. My hands felt great after using it and it did not wash off immediately. Though, i felt that the size of the product was very small considering how expensive it was for a hand creme. While the product is great, I probably would not purchase it again.

Not as moisturizing as I had hoped...
Purchased

I liked the smell, but I didn't think it moisturized very well. I will have to try a different hand cream.
