Today I am going to talk about a goat milk hand cream from Ziaja. This is going to be my first of many posts on this brand, you might already figured this out if you have been following me on Instagram. I am going to share my story with the brand in just a moment, but first let’s talk about the brand itself for a bit.
You might have never heard of Ziaja or you might have a bunch of their products. It really depends on where you live and where you shop. Ziaja is a leading cosmetics brand that was founded in Poland several decades ago. The brand was founded by pharmacists that wanted to create a cosmetics line that uses more natural ingredients. Many years later, the brand has become an international phenomenon. Their products are widely available in Eastern and Central Europe, but you can also find them in the UK and the USA on specialised websites and/or pharmacies. Personally, I got my products from various dm stores (German drugstore retailer) but also from actual pharmacies.
Okay, so now about my obsession with this brand. I tried their shampoo first and from the first time I used it, I could tell it was different. After that, it took me quite a while to get a second product. The products are not really in your face in the stores I visited. Recently, the brand released a cleansing gel and I purchased it. After that, I went hunting specifically for this brand and my collection expanded dramatically from there. You will see when you have a look at my June shopping ban report.
Today I want to start by talking about the Goat’s Milk Hand and Nail Cream from Ziaja. This product was a gift with purchase, but I did not receive it for review purposes or anything of the sort.
Ziaja Goat’s Milk Hand and Nail Cream Review
When I went to dm just a few weeks ago (my third time going out since March) I had every intention of getting my hands on every Ziaja product I could find. To my surprise I could not find a hand cream which was really difficult to believe. I mean a brand that focuses so much on body care surely released a hand cream as well, right? Well, right. However, the hand creams were not on display at that particular time as the cashiers had them behind the counter to give the hand creams as a gift with purchase when spending who knows how much on the brand. I really had no idea of this offer and they did not tell me how exactly I qualified. I did spend around £50 on products from the brand so….
Anyway, that is how I found out that Ziaja did indeed produces hand creams as well. I also have to say that I was excited to ry out the product, perhaps a little more than the rest. There is something more satisfying about using products you got for free, you know?
As I was saying, I got the hand cream from Ziaja and as soon as I got home, disinfected my hands and everything else, I tried the Goat’s Milk Hand and Nail cream from Ziaja for the first time.
I could not believe that I waited so long to try the product. The first thing that caught my attention was the fact that the tube in which the cream comes in was tall and flat almost.. I never saw a hand cream in a tube such as this one, but then I thought that it would go amazingly well in my bag. It does! Since the tube is so slim, you can easily squeeze it in a bag no matter how small it is, well as long as the bag is wide enough to fit the length of the tube.
In terms of fragrance, the Goat’s Milk Hand and Nail cream from Ziaja has a pleasant and soft fragrance. The fragrance reminds me of milk, but not quite the milk I use in my tea. I never had goat milk so I cannot comment on that, but the cream does have a milky scent. The fragrance does not feel artificial and definitely not at all overpowering.
In terms of texture, the hand cream from Ziaja is soft and milky. I never used a smaller amount at one time of a hand cream and I do from this one. I just need to apply a tiny amount on the tip of my finger and that is more than enough to cover both of my hands. Furthermore, the hand cream absorbs fast, does not leave a greasy layer on the skin so no need to worry if you are a typer. In addition, the hand cream from Ziaja leaves the skin feeling super soft and velvet like. The feeling is incredible.
The most amazing part? Not only the hand and nail cream works – protects and helps you skin – but it is also incredibly affordable, just like every other products from the brand. Depending on where you purchase the hand cream from, the price can range from £1.50 to £3 for 80ml. The lower price of the range is usually found in pharmacies and in the areas of the world where the brand is widely available. However, no matter where you get the products from, it is still super affordable, especially when you compare its ability to care for you hands to that of other products in the same price category.
Overall, I am incredibly impressed with the Ziaja Goat’s Milk Hand and Nail Cream. This has nothing to do with the fact that I developed a small obsession for the brand. Regardless of how much I love the brand, and I do, I am still able to tell whether a product is great or not. Not all the products I tried so far are amazing as you will be able to tell in the future as you try the products or as I review them. In my opinion though, this hand cream is perhaps one of the best hand creams I have ever tried and I tried quite a few. It can outmatch some of the most expensive hand creams on the market.
You can purchase this products from pharmacies, dm stores (if available in your country) and other online retailers. A google search should help you find local retailers.
