MSM Lotion Rose with aloe vera, shea butter & wild rose oil for hands and body 150ml. MSM stands methylsulfonylmethne or dimethyl sulfone which is used as a health supplement and in cosmetics for all skin types but is also purported to be excellent for irritated or sensitive skin. This product includes 10% MSM/organic sulphur which is impressive as well as other aforementioned ingredients. I had never tried Higher Nature cosmetics before and I purchased this on a whim as it was at a reduced price due to being near the Best Before Date. It’s usually priced at around £14 but I got it for £4.50! Bargain! Bear in mind that this is a high quality product and that Best Before Dates are different to Use By or Sell By Dates; products can be used long after BBE dates as they are stable products, it just means that they’re not as fresh as before that date but are still fine whereas UBD and SBDs go off near the specified time.
I’ve used this product for a while now and my hands felt and still feel soft, smooth and even silky… surprisingly so which is great because I’m always cleaning and washing my hands hence the skin gets dry easily. The cream is light, mild and fragrance free (meaning the ingredients have their own natural scent and no added or artificial scents have been used). A little goes a long way and I think this will last a while, so good quality and value.
There’s three types of Higher Nature MSM moisturiser 1) MSM Cream Light for face and body 2) MSM Cream Rose (rose geranium) for face and body and 3) MSM Lotion Rose (wild rose) for hands and body, and after using this one I can say it’s one of the best creams for dry skin I’ve come across, and the other two are probably well worth a try too, glad I found this!
I also bought MSM Cream Light along with this and it’s good but not as nice as Lotion Rose.
Note – the container says vegetarian but this is also vegan friendly.
