EARTH DAY | H&M Conscious Sweet Lemon Hand Cream and Hand Wash Review #EcoCertified

The countdown to Earth Day is ON! For 46 years, April 22nd is the day we globally take a stand for planet Earth and focus our energy on environmental issues and strategies to keep our home planet around for as long as possible. Yes, I drive a car 1-2x a week, but I take transit and/or walk as much as I can. I recycle my cardboard and 1,2,4 and 5 numbered plastics and compost at work. Yes, I am a total consumer, but I do my best and from what I have seen, more than the average Joe so for the next week, Cosmetic Proof will play host for a number of Earth-friendly products starting with the H&M Conscious line. 

Amongst the plethora of beauty products H&M launched last year, there are a couple of body products that H&M has gotten eco-certified (Find out more about what being eco certified means here)! Being eco-certified is always something I find impressive when I see companies do it as it is something that is done per product as opposed to per company. It is something I find important in setting products apart from the rest of the "green world" as it means a governing third party has vetted the products as "natural". I have been happily incorporating the H&M Sweet Lemon Hand Cream* ($9.99 CDN) and H&M Sweet Lemon Hand Wash* ($9.99 CDN) into my daily routine.

The Sweet Lemon Hand Wash contains certified organic aloe vera and pomegranate in a glycerin base and also contains lavender essential oil which is now one of my favourite scents. The soap itself is almost like a gel and isn't "stringy" like how some hand soaps can be, but does require at least two pumps to completely cover the hands. It doesn't lather much either.

The Sweet Lemon Hand Cream is made with certified organic shea butter, pomegranate seed oil, jojoba oil, apricot kernel oil, beeswax and aloe vera. In addition to the lavender and lemon scent, I love that this hand cream is hydrating, but non-greasy. There is nothing worse than greasy keyboard!

I have also picked up 6 of the H&M Conscious t-shirts to "match" my new hand cream and soap. Totally legitimate purchase, right?

Available in stores at the H&M Beauty Department.
