Cath Kidston Wild Flowers Hand Cream

A review of Cath Kidston Wild Flowers hand cream in Bluebell, Wild Rose and Honeysuckle

I've always been a fan of Cath Kidston, or pretty much anything with a floral or polka dot print to be honest.  When I see brands like hers come out with beauty products I never have high expectations but this time I was pleasantly surprised.  The Wild Flowers trio is a lovely assortment of handbag sized hand creams with scents of Bluebell, Wild Rose and Honeysuckle.  Naturally sweet but not too overpowering.

A factor which made me enjoy them even more is that they contain no parabens or sulfates which I wouldn't expect a brand of this nature to be concerned about.  Although after a little researching for this post, I’ve found that they do infact contain mineral oil which disappointed me quite a lot.  If you haven't been keeping up with skincare advice from the infamous Caroline Hirons lately, my basic understanding is that mineral oil is a cheap ingredient which is used as a sort of moisturising mask to make your skin feel soft and silky but it’s not actually doing much for the skin on a deeper level, basically it sits on the surface.

A little disappointing but aside from that, these hand creams are great for a quick moisturising fix during the day.  I’d suggest a more nourishing hand cream for night time but I haven't found any issues from using them. I also think they'd make a really nice gift for a friend and at £6 for the trio, they're a bargain.  If you use them and find that you like one the most, you can also buy them in full size.  If I were to choose my favourite out of the three, it would definitely be Bluebell.

    If I could afford to buy everything I would, everythings so pretty!

  2. I'm a huge Cath Kidston addict and I agree it is so annoying that the products contain mineral oil :(
