A'kin Hand Nail and Cuticle Cream

Hand cream wasn't something I really worried about till a year or so ago when I found my hands drying out and getting tight, since then a good hand cream has been a must, as if it didn't work for me I would soon end up with sore hands.
This A'kin cream is listed as for all skin types.
Ideal For:
Softer more supple hands
Hydrated cuticles
Strong nails
Active Ingredients:
Certified Organic Lavender Oil
Certified Organic Shea Butter
Australian cold pressed Macadamia Oil
Australian Jojoba Oil
Vitamin E and B5
It claims to be ‘for' all the things I need, my fibromyalgia plays havoc with my once strong nails, so I need to keep lathering on a good cream to keep them looking and feeling good.
As people who read my blog will know I'm slowly trying to switch to brands that are more natural, don't contain parabens, sulfates and most definitely don't test on animals, it's a slow process, I'm not too up on it all in all honestly I'm in the dark flailing around – but when a product that has all these pointers, plus does all the jobs I would love it to do is offered to me to try I have to jump at it. 

A'kin Hand Nail and Cuticle Cream

With a creamy, light texture, this cream has a light fragrance in which the Lavender and Geranium shines through, it is quickly absorbed into the skin leaving hands grease free. 
I've been using it as my main hand cream for a month now and I have to say it is yet to show any sign of split nails, painful cuticles or dry hands, I'm actually completely over the moon at how it has been working for me, I can really see myself going back and buying this product for myself, I can't actually find a fault with it, I like the ethics, I like the ingredients and I most of all like how hard it works for me!
A'kin Lavender Geranium & Jojoba Hand Nail & Cuticle Creme costs £12 for 75ml and can be brought from Holland & Barrett, Bentalls, John Bell & Croydon, Whole Foods Market, Planet Organic, and
Have you tried A'kin, what do you think of them?
*I was sent the hand cream free of charge for reviewing purposes, all opinions like normal are 100% honest and my own.

    Just file once a week. Depending on genes, nails may break easily. Nails often break if they are uneven, and nails naturally grow unevenly. So stash files everywhere, and whenever you see unevenness, file them all to the same length, shape, and size.-`,:
