Neal’s Yard Remedies Geranium & Orange Hand Cream* came free with the June’s issue of Marie Claire and I could not resist buying it, being a fan of Neal’s Yard Remedies for many years. I’ve been using it for months now as my main hand cream so I thought it’s about time to write this review.
Neal’s Yard Remedies’ products are made with high quality organic plant-based ingredients and they are all certified organic by the Soil Association. This hand cream is no exception of course. The cream is made with 92% organic ingredients which is a really high percentage – there are many brands out there which use much smaller percentage of organic ingredients, but they still call themselves to be organic.
Neal’s Yard products are also cruelty-free, certified by Cruelty-Free International, and they also contain Fairtrade certified ingredients.

This natural hand cream has a pleasant scent, I can definitely smell orange and geranium comes more as a subtle, background scent. The scent is a little bit strong but I do love it so I don’t mind.
Geranium & Orange hand cream is a thicker consistency than a lotion and it spreads easily, leaving hands feeling nice and soft.
I haven’t been suffering from extremely dry hands so I cannot say how it would work on those, but for slightly dry hands it works great, leaving them nourished and moisturised without greasiness.
Overall, it’s a great natural hand cream as it contains premium ingredients but I would want to try other similar hand creams so I could compare them together before deciding what my go-to natural hand cream would be.
The good thing is that many people love this natural hand cream, this is what I managed to gather from online reviews:
- “A lovely hand cream with a beautiful natural scent. Absorbs quickly and not at all greasy which, is always a plus”
- “Soothes, smoothes and smells like summer…one of our favourites!” (The Beauty Shortlist)
- “One of my favourite ever hand creams, lovely soft hands, nice fragrance & no nasty ingredients”
If you want to buy this Geranium & Orange Hand Cream, it costs £10 for 50ml which seems like a lot for a hand cream, but if you consider natural organic ingredients, company’s ethics and their passion for people and environment, then you feel you are buying a really special product which is actually worth the money.
Have you tried any of Neal’s Yard Remedies hand creams yet and what did you think? Would you spend £10 on a natural hand cream?
