Nature’s Beauty Bee Kiwi Hand and Nail Repair Cream ($19.50), filled with manuka honey, harakeke, shea butter, ginseng and vitamin E supposedly repairs troubled skin and improves its suppleness. Dry, ragged cuticles are my pet peeve, so I applied it at least twice daily, concentrating on the nail bed and cuticle area.
Bee Kiwi Hand and Nail Repair Cream comes in a convenient white tube with a flip top cap for ease of use. The barely discernible fragrance is very light and absorbs quickly, leaving a light sheen on nail beds without any greasiness.
Manuka honey, a product from New Zealand, has nourishing and healing qualities due to its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. Harakeke, the Māori name for New Zealand's indigenous flax plant, has long been revered for its cooling, healing, and antiseptic properties. These are definitely not your garden variety hand cream ingredients.
With the testing period now complete, I would have to agree with the product’s claims. The cream kept my hands soft all day, even through a few hand washings, and the hydration was even better when applied overnight.
Overall, Nature’s Beauty Bee Kiwi Hand and Nail Repair Cream lived up to its claims. As it keeps my hands (and most importantly, my cuticles!) hydrated and smooth, I will continue to use it as a nighttime treatment for silky hands.
