SpaRitual makes some of my favorite nail polishes, in fact, I have a bottle of Airhead sitting on my desk right now as I’m typing this. I adored their products for many years [it’s been close to a decade now, I think], but this is actually my first time trying the brand’s hand care.
You’d think that moving from Russia to the US would make the winters milder, but I swear, it sure feels the other way around. I have a bad habit of rarely wearing gloves, so my poor hands always get the worst of the elements. At least I remember to slather them in sunscreen, so I’m not totally a lost cause just yet. One thing I know for sure though – dry hands can make even the most perfect salon manicure look ten times worse, so I armed myself with SpaRitual Handprint Hand Serum and Hand Salve to remedy the situation.
Using the same rules as I do for skincare, I applied a few pumps of SpaRitual Handprint Hand Serum to my palms, and gently massaged it into the skin. I was expecting this runny lotion to linger on a little longer, but it got quickly absorbed leaving behind silky smooth surface and a faint trace of orange scent.
The serum is made with 72% organic ingredients, and the star of the show is undoubtedly the luxurious Swiss Apple Stem Cell Extract, derived from a very rare Uttwiler Spätlauber tree that thrives in extreme conditions. These fruits are known for their excellent storability: they can stay fresh-looking for up to four months after being harvested, long after other varieties have become wrinkled. According to a 2009 article there are only 20 documented Uttwiler Spätlauber trees left in the wild, so it’s amazing that we can do science on tiny cells and maybe eventually even crack the code behind that unparalleled vitality. But I digress…
While the Hand Serum prepped the surface, SpaRitual Handprint Hand Salve truly brought my skin back to life. A pea-sized amount of this thick, rich paste instantly revived my dry cuticles, moisturized the nails themselves, and softened all the rough spots in a matter of seconds.
The salve is made with 76% certified organic ingredients, and does not contain synthetic dyes, fragrances, parabens, and petrochemicals. Nothing but clean, honest formula with ethically sourced oils and butters, SpaRitual Handprint Hand Salve delivered a true SPA experience for my hands, and I truly felt like I just stepped out of a salon.
The packaging also deserves a round of applause: made with biodegradable materials and printed using soy ink, SpaRitual products are not only good for my hands, they’re good for the environment, too.
