I Was A Teenage Hand Model Balm

This soft balm 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.

Free UK Shipping over £35 / International over £150

This is not your standard tough and waxy balm, it’s more like a rich crème with the texture of icing. 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.

Perfect for the winter handbag edit.

Throw one in the toolbox or gym bag too, the light aluminium tin keeps it safe and ready to soothe!

100% natural, vegan and cruelty-free. No beeswax.

Size: 55g in a plastic free tin.

The ingredients in this product make it helpful not only for binding moisture to dry skin, but for use on sunburn, cold sores, nappy rash, tattoos… Those with eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis have also found some sweet relief from this balm.  


Scent notes:  Softly nostalgic and distinct. Like catching a whiff of your mum’s bohemian perfume in mossy oak woods.

With only 1.5% essential oil content, and zero artificial fragrance or perfume, the scent is soft and un-obnoxious.

How to: Massage a pea sized amount into hardworking hands - or any part of the body that’s going through a rough patch. 

Expect hands to feel freshly conditioned for hours, but not sticky or waxy, and no oily shine like other balms.

Depending on the temperature when we pour and set our balms, they can develop a white haze or slight crystals on the top. This is superficial and a part of natural balm setting that disappears with use.
