What we say:
A little rough to apply to skin yet great for your body, Badger’s Nutmeg and Shea Body Moisturiser not only smells heavenly but with its durable tin packaging, it’s great for your handbag. Its long lasting effect will leave your skin feeling healthy and smooth to the touch. An organic must for your handbag for those winter moisturising emergencies. As an eczema sufferer, I can comfortably recommend this product. Badger’s Nutmeg and Shea Body Moisturiser is organic and smells heavenly .

I was very excited to be receiving this product to review as I had never even heard of it until now. I must admit that I did do some Google searching before I received the product so I knew more about what I would be receiving. When you look at the packaging you can immediately see that it is an organic product as it does look somewhat boring.

The first thing I did was open the tin and smell the moisturiser, I admit that the smell did remind me of one of those candles you light to get rid of the mozzies but I was determined to give it a shot.
The consistency of the moisturiser is something that reminds me of when Vaseline went hard and solid. I scooped some into my hands and rubbed into my hands and around my nails, now is a good time to say that I have never had a problem growing my nails to a beautiful length, I don’t bite my nails but I have a horrible habit of biting the skin around my nails. As a result, my fingers never look good, they are dry and often raw where I bite so I concentrated on this area with the Badger Body Moisturiser. A week later and my hands and fingers not only feel new but they look amazing too. I don’t have any dry patches around my nails and because it has made such a difference and added a confidence boost, I no longer bite.

The moisturiser smells different on your skin (no more mozzie repellent) and it’s almost as if your skin eats it because it really does go deep into the skin making your skin feel so soft and smooth.
The only sad thing is that its not big enough.  I will definitely have to buy another one when this one is finished.

A very good moisturising product that I will recommend, but because it’s winter I had put my pressed Nutmeg & Shea Body Moisturizer in hot water to soften it a bit, before applying it to my body. It works great on hand, knees, elbows and feet, but also have to say I have a very sensitive winter skin regarding my cheeks, so they are always a bit dry and red. After applying my badger Nutmeg & Shea there was a difference within two days, the flakiness on my cheeks and the reddish colour was gone and my skin felt very soft. I really love this product and the old fashioned tin packaging is awesome, the only thing about this product it does not really have a great smell to me but the results of this product is amazing. Definitely a 5-star product. I love it.
