When I was asked to review a complimentary sample of Organic Olive Essence Organic Hand Cream I was more than happy to oblige. After all, I can always use hand cream, and I was curious to see how this product compared to others.
The first thing I noticed about it was the scent. It had a lemon aroma, which surprised me. I guess I was expecting something more subtle for an organic product featuring olives on the packaging.
The cream was thick, but absorbed instantly into my skin and did not feel greasy.
I had put the hand cream on just before going to bed. About three hours later, I woke up because my hands were itching like crazy. I got up and turned on the light. Both of my hands were covered in a red rash.
I have very sensitive skin so it is not unusual for me to get a rash. At this point, I wasn’t sure if the itchy rash was from the Organic Olive Essence Organic Hand Cream or something else that my skin may have been exposed to that day. So I waited a few days before trying the cream again. Unfortunately, I experienced the same negative reaction a few hours after applying it the second time.
Not wanting to waste the product, I asked my husband if he would try the Organic Olive Essence Hand Cream. He doesn’t have sensitive skin and rarely experiences any type of skin allergies. But, just like me, my husband’s hands broke out in an uncomfortable red rash within hours of using the hand cream.
Just because a product is “organic” and sounds like it will be good for your skin doesn’t mean that it won’t cause irritation.
