Best for Sensitive Skin: Gardener’s Hedgerow SOS Tin


It can be difficult to find the right hand cream when you have sensitive skin - most brands are full of breakout-inducing chemicals and additives. At Heathcote & Ivory, we make sure that all our products are free of parabens and sulphates, particularly pesky SLS that removes healthy oils and can cause even further dryness. Our Gardner's hand cream has an all-natural, ultra-nourishing and incredibly gentle formula. This Hedgerow SOS hand cream set doesn't just look adorable but includes a SOS balm with beeswax and chamomile for hands that need some extra special care.

We'd all love to look a little younger, and hands are the best place to start turning back time. The first part of the body to show signs of aging, it’s important to keep your hands well moisturised. Heath's shortlisted moisturiser instantly helps stimulate collagen production and cellular detoxification for brighter, more hydrated skin. Even better, Heath's moisturiser has been formulated for the face and neck, so you'll have plumper, younger-looking skin in no time.
