'I Was A Teenage Hand Model' Anything Balm

This soft balm with the texture of icing is our hand, nail, and anything-dry cream.

It’s the hard-working saviour you’ve been looking for all these years, helping to return your hands to their former fame.

It doesn’t simply coat the skin, the active botanical emollients actively soften and heal. Expect hands to feel freshly conditioned for hours, but not sticky or waxy, and with no oily shine like other balms.

The natural ingredients in this product make it helpful not only for binding moisture to dry skin, but to help heal sunburn, cold sores, nappy rash, tattoos… anywhere that needs a little help.

The scent is softly nostalgic and distinct. Like catching a whiff of your mum’s bohemian perfume in mossy oak woods.

How to: Use a pea sized amount and massage well into skin. Store with the lid on away from heat.

Botanical Standouts

Soybean Oil

Soybean oil is lightweight enough to penetrate deep into the skins layers where it does an amazing job at softening and moisturising, improving elasticity.

Mango Butter

A very nourishing butter. Reduces trans-epidermal moisture loss (TEWL). Gives a plush texture to the balm and makes sure your skin is left powdery soft and moisturised.

Allantoin & Oat Extract

Derived from the comfrey plant, allantoin is a beautiful softening and healing ingredient commonly used to treat minor cuts and dry skin. Oat extract soothes itchiness and coats dry skin.

Love this I have missed it and been using other products but have now stocked up. Penetrating powerfull you don't need much so good value for money, good on cuticles and non greasy. Like the metal tin good for storage light to transport (low carbon footprint) and no plastic :)

Magic cream!!

This product is just fantastic, I have used this myself, but also for my two very young daughters (2 and 3 yrs) on skin ailments with cracked weeping sores on the back of ears and on thumbs and both have seen dramatically improved skin in a very short space of time. Being so little I would only use natural and gentle products and this has been wonderful for my babies. It’s made such a difference to us all, and my little girls refer to it as “magic cream” because it’s made them better!!

Hand Balm

Such a great balm which can be used anywhere. To be used sparingly as, if using too much in one go, can take a while to absorb.

Non-greasy and hydrating

I am a big fan of NB's skincare (check out The Daily Glow Facial Oil and Mild Mannered Face Lotion!) and this time decided to try the expand my horizon and ordered the cream.

Well, I am yet to be disappointed! It leaves my hands nice and moisturised but without the greasy feeling I usually get from hand creams. It's hydrating and smells great!

Another great product from NB, I carry mine around with me :)
