Review: Priddy Valencian Orange Hand Cream

Saturday, December 21, 2013
I was sent this hand cream from the shop The Mercantile London through the Blogger Programme website (If you are a blogger I would recommend joining). Even though this product was sent for review it does not change my views on the product/brand, I will always be honest in my opinions - for more information about PR and my disclaimer, click here.

I received the *Valencian Orange hand cream scent, there are three other scents (Bergamot and lime, Rowan berry, Hyeres lavender). I have the 30ml size which is £12 but there is a smaller 15ml size for only £5 which would be great as a little present or as a tester to see if you like the cream/scent. Firstly, the packaging from The Mercantile London and the brand Priddy is just gorgeous - it looks so unique, quirky and modern, love the packaging/presentation. 

The cream comes in a metal (but flexible) tube, the ingredients are clearly listed and it has a similar feel to the L'Occitane hand creams in terms of packaging and quality. The cream itself is a off white colour and the scent is divine! It smells like sour oranges and gorgeous musk - it smells really similar to the Molton Brown Valbonne unisex fragrance. This hand cream would be great for men and women as the scent, in my opinion, is definitely unisex. The scent is quite unique, it makes me think of harry potter and other magical mysterious type films (think Tim Burton films) as it is a unique, musky gorgeous scent. 

Even after washing my hands the scent remains, it stays on my hands for a good couple of hours at least. The cream has a smooth texture, it applies quickly and easily - you only need a really small amount of cream, a little goes a long way so I think this 30ml will last me quite a while. It leaves my hands smelling amazing and feeling silky smooth, soft and moisturised. It is very moisturising and the moisturising effect lasts for hours, for my skin which is very impressive. It is also great as a cuticle/nail cream.

Overall, I love the packaging and scent! The hand cream is up there with L'Occitane in my opinion, it is fantastic and it will last a while too. It is super moisturising (if you use too much it can be a little greasy though) and it keeps my hands moisturised for a while - very happy with this product. I will be looking out for more products from the brand Priddy! The Priddy EDP and festive spice room spray sound gorgeous. To see more products from Priddy, click here
