I first tried a Manuka honey hand cream in New Zealand and loved its scent and the way it made my hands feel. I wanted to bring some home but, since we weren't checking luggage, I was foiled by the TSA liquids ban. Needless to say, I was very excited to find Manuka Honey Wild Ferns Facial Moisturizer SPF15+. Although it's billed as a facial moisturizer, I use it mostly on my hands, since Manuka honey is said to have antibacterial properties and this is much gentler on my skin than hand sanitizer. Effectiveness Normally I have rough skin and cuticles all winter long, but this has really helped keep my hands supple. I also use it on the skin around my nose, in part because that part of my face is often extra dry...but also because Manuka honey smells so good. Ease of Application Manuka Honey Wild Ferns Facial Moisturizer SPF15+ is very thick and creamy, so I'm always a little surprised at how quickly it absorbs. I just smooth it on and rub it in gently, until it sinks in fully. Scent Manuka Honey Wild Ferns Facial Moisturizer SPF15+ has a light, sweet honey scent that I love.
