Neal’s Yard Remedies: Garden Mint and Bergamot Hand Lotion



Neal’s yard are motivated by a desire to produce authentic products made primarily from organic rather than synthetic ingredients. They are also environmentally conscious and driven and enjoy sourcing local produce and assisting with various campaigns. As such, you can enjoy the wonderful, healthy spoils whilst also sleeping with a sound conscious that you are contributing to the planets welfare. A transparent brand, you are able to see exactly what is in the products you purchase, how they were sourced and made.


A dark blue, semi-transparent bottle that looks as though it could house a message bobbing out to sea, the aesthetic mirrors the brands desire to promote healthy, organic, environmentally friendly living. What you see is what you get.


A 200ml bottle will set you back £12.50.


Wonderfully exhilarating, this is the scent of summer; delicious, zesty and fruity. The website describes a ‘clean, green scent’ meshing mint, bergamot, and conditioning Shea nut butter, jojoba and evening primrose oil.


Silky, soft, smooth and sublime! Not thick or heavy. A light and refreshing lotion.

Bang for your buck

This will make you feel special and a little luxurious. It smells heavenly, really lasts and makes a great addition to any shelf.

Does it work?

A great conditioning hand treatment, it feels light and refreshing rather than thick and heavy making it perfect for ‘normal’ hands that just need a little revitalising after a hard day.

Does it last?

200 ml will last you, especially if you keep it to yourself! We are not yet half way down a few months in.

Would I repurchase?

I think I would try another of the wonderful hand lotions of Neal’s Yard for comparison, but it is certainly a keeper based on scent alone!

Instructions for use

Use sparingly throughout the day for maximised hydration.
