ABAHNA – Winner Best Hand Cream 2012
Also runner-up “Best Shower Gel” White Grapefruit & May Chang
Runner-up “Best New Fragrance Launch” Mandarin & Sicilian Bergamot
Best Hand Cream
2012 Beauty Shortlist Awards
Despite the exotic and tricky to spell name, Abahna (A-bah-na) are based in London. In fact their Lilac Rose & Geranium range is quintessentially British and very “English summer garden” and they supply their luxury bath range to some of the world’s best hotels. (You’ll find them at the Four Seasons Spa in London).
But back to the award-winning hand cream…we really rate these “you tubes” a) because they smell divine and b) there’s Artemisia oil in them, which is a natural antibacterial. And c) It’s probably the fruit, flower and tree essential oils in them that make them smell out of this world.
So you get the luxury of shea butter, cocoa butter, fragrant natural essential oils and sweet almond oil – and the Artemisia – all packed into one colourful tube. They’ve left out petrochemicals, SLES, etc. so you’re buying a veil of scented soothing shea butter and fruit and flower natural actives in each £8 handbag friendly tube.
All Abahna orders come gift-wrapped and delivered in the UK for free, with samples of all 4 of Abahna’s signature scents. You might also like their White Grapefruit Shower Gel – a great way to extract yourself from under the duvet on those mornings when your body says “nooo”!
Abahna Frangipani & Orange Blossom, White Grapefruit & May Chang, Mandarin & Sicilian Bergamot and Lilac Rose & Geranium Hand Creams – Tube £8/50ml (also in larger sizes)
