I Was A Teenage Hand Model Balm
I Was A Teenage Hand Model Balm
Available in store
It’s the winter saviour you’ve been looking for all these years… helping to return your hands to their former fame.
Cold pressed, non-GMO soya bean oil, mango butter and shea butter provide a protective moisture barrier, supported by soothing colloidal oatmeal, and healing allantoin.
Cetyl alcohol, derived from coconuts and often confused for normal drying alcohol, is actually an A+ moisturiser, and gives this blend it’s creamy feeling.
This is not your standard tough and waxy balm, it’s more like a richer hand cream with the texture of icing. It doesn’t simply coat the skin… the active botanical emollients actively soften and heal.
Expect hands to feel freshly conditioned for hours, but not sticky or waxy, and with no oily shine like other balms.
Perfect for the winter handbag edit. Throw one in the toolbox or gym bag too, the sturdy boot polish tin keeps it safe and ready to soothe!
The ingredients in this product make it helpful not only for binding moisture to dry skin, but for healing wounds, burns, sunburn, cold sores, nappy rash, tattoos… Those with eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis have also found some sweet relief from this balm. It’s a real over achiever. Almost too good to be true.
Massage a pea sized amount into hardworking hands - or any part of the body that’s going through a rough patch.
100% natural, vegan and cruelty-free. No beeswax.
The unisex scent is softly nostalgic and distinct. Like catching a whiff of your mum’s bohemian perfume in mossy oak woods.
There’s only 1.5% essential oils and zero artificial fragrance or perfume, so the scent is soft and unobnoxious.
Made small-batch in London. Independently female owned.

Meet The Designer
Born from a need to balance the dulling effects that a fast-paced rock’n’roll life has on our peachy skin! Get your glow back with this oil based natural skincare from London. No synthetics, no silicones, no alcohol. Cruelty free, small batch, made fresh in the UK.
Micaela Nisbet discovered the magic of natural oils at an early age. Born and raised on the serene beaches of Australia, Micaela moved to England to pursue her music career, bringing the natural ethos of her homeland to the smoggy streets of London. By her mid-twenties, the touring lifestyle began taking its toll, with the late nights and constant travel making her skin dull and lacklustre. Keen to regain her aussie glow, she frittered away her pay checks on mainstream skincare, irked to find many products packed with plastic fillers or carrying eye- watering price tags. Intent on finding an affordable solution, Micaela returned to blending her own raw oils and extracts, and the results were immediate.
She took an Advanced Diploma of Organic Skincare Formulation to complement her home-grown techniques, and founded Neighbourhood Botanicals - a range of no-BS natural oil-based skincare with solid results. A life-long perfume devotee, Micaela carefully designs each blend to incorporate aromatherapeutic properties alongside a harmonious scent profile. A sound engineer and oil alchemist, her career in live music sees her mixing skincare by day and hits by night. Combining her expertise, 2018 will also see more ‘NBx’ artist collaborations, following the success of Rejjie Snow’s 2017 sellout skincare collab “Young Luv”.
What’s more, all the handsome packaging is fully recyclable, the range is vegan and natural, and there’s no animal testing, no big-pharma, no crazy markups, and no dicey ingredients.
