I'm a sucker for good packaging. Always have been, always will be. When my lovely friend gifted me this Grown Alchemist Manicure Set, I was impressed.
I'm not actually sure what the set was called, but it contains the Sweet Orange, Cedarwood & Sage Hand Wash, Hypericum Extract, Neem, Borage Cuticle Oil, and the Vanilla & Orange Peel Hand Cream. It couldn't have been more timely, as my hands and nails were completely battered after a Christmas season in retail!
Grown Alchemist has been one of those brands us Aussies have seen countless times in Priceline or Department Stores, and it has only gotten better and better with time. With a vast array of botanicals available to us locally, it's no surprise that we excel in creating natural, botanical based skin care that works. I've only tried a few of their products before (I'm a big fan of the hand cream) but I'm here to tell you that they have been exceptional.
WHAT'S TO LOVE:
- Australian made and manufactured. They source locally wherever possible and I wholly support home grown brands.
- The packaging isn't just incredible to look at, it's also made of recyclable materials and premium PET plastic!
- Made from natural ingredients that your skin is familiar with in order to best keep adverse reactions and ageing at bay.
- It's 100% Organic
- It's cruelty free, yay!
- IT SMELLS SO GOOD
I'm not going to lie, I am obsessed with smelling my hands after I use the hand wash. I'm such a sucker for anything containing cedarwood - I just find that scent so comforting and fresh and calming! My hands have been absolutely loving this trio, my nails feel stronger and less brittle, and my hands haven't had that horrible parched feeling I've been experiencing in this dry heat! I also love that the hand cream doesn't sit on your hands and feel greasy - it sinks in quickly, but hydrates so well!
If you're a lover of Aesop, you will love Grown Alchemist. The hand wash looks soooo pretty in my bathroom, and you just know you're going to see that hand cream lingering in the background of all my photos!
When a brand with great packaging also happens to have incredible products, it's a win in my book.
Have you tried anything from Grown Alchemist?
