This 0.8oz tube is purse-friendly, allowing hands to stay hydrated on-the-go.

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.

Feels good, smells like bug repellant.
Sampled

To be fair I don't mean it smells like a poisonous chemical brand, I mean an herbal essential oil kind of repellant. Lemongrass or something. It's not bad but it is very strong at first. It did make my hands feel amazing. The texture was creamy and oily, which sounds weird but surprisingly the makers here have perfected this. Anyway, I give it high marks for texture, absorption and the peace of mind that my hands are safe from mosquitos. It loses points for the first aromatic hour after use.

Best Hand Cream Ever!
Purchased

Seriously the best hand cream ever. And I've tried many. This one is thick, but not greasy. It smells nice and not too strong. A little goes a long way and plus is perfect size for travel. It will always be in my bag!

It's effective, it really does smooth your hands, isn't greasy or heavy, and the fresh smell is so lovely and refreshing. This is now a mainstay in my purse.

Holy Grail Product
SampledPurchased

By far my favorite hand cream. Love the smell and how thick this product is without being greesy. I use this between manicures to keep my cuticles in check... especially during colder months when my skin is dry. It's alos great for parts of your skin that tend to be chronically dry, such as elbows. I would absolutely reccomend this product to anyone!

Lovely cream
Sampled

The Gardener's Hand Healer smells great, absorbs easily, and really moisturizes quickly. It's great on my hands and elbows. It doesn't leave any sticky feeling but its effects do feel long lasting. I also really like that it doesn't feel waxy. I keep it at my desk and put it on and go back to pounding away on my keyboard, without hesitating.

too sticky
Sampled

This product leaves a bit of a stickily feeling on your hands. I've had that on occasion with other creams that have heavy shea butter contents…feels like that.

My favorite hand product
Sampled

This was, and still is, my favorite product I have ever recieved from BB. It smells like a boquet of fresh flowers with a hint of grass. It's creamy, smooth, and makes my hands feel baby-bum soft. I'm a HUGE fan and have already repurchased several times. My must have skin care product!
