Charity of the Month – Refuge

I love the fact that I am able to support charities. It makes me feel empowered and as they say, every little really does help. One of the charities on my mind this month is Refuge. This charity supports women and children experiencing all sorts of violence and abuse. Refuge Charity tailors the support offered to suit each individual needs. They also offer a range of services like refuges, community-based projects, culturally-specific services, services for children and support for women going through the criminal justice system. I think it is an amazing charity doing great things to help women and children who find themselves in a violent/abusive environment.

Forms of Violence and Abuse

There are different types of violence and abuse experienced by women and children. Some are more obvious than others. This charity does offer specialist support to help women and children who may be experiencing some form of violence and abuse. Some of which include rape and sexual abuse, forced marriage, domestic violence, so-called ‘honour’-based violence, human trafficking and modern slavery, prostitution, and female genital mutilation (FGM) survivors.

 

Facts on the Extent of Domestic Violence

For those who don’t know how high the figures are when it comes to domestic violence against women, here are some figures for you –

In the year ending March 2019, 1.6 million women experienced some form of domestic abuse.

Product Review: Inecto Argan Hand & Nail Cream

*Affiliate link.

With the rise of CoronaVirus also known as COVID-19, many of us are washing our hands a lot more than we would normally do. I wash my hands quite regularly. It is a good habit I have had but the issue with washing your hands regularly is that all the washing tends to dry out your skin. This is where a good hand & nail cream like this Inecto Cream comes in. I have used Inecto Argan Hand & Nail Cream for weeks now. It is my first time using a hand cream from the brand and I really like this particular one. It has literally saved my tired, dry hands.

Inecto Argan Hand & Nail Cream

This hand and nail cream is a little saviour for dry hands this cold winter season. It is a lightweight, non-greasy cream, infused with pure organic Argan Oil.

 

PROS
  1. I love the lightweight texture. It is easily absorbed into the skin.
  2. It moisturises the hands and nails. If you battle with dry hands, you would want to give this hand and nail cream a try.
  3. I love the light fragrance.
  4. This cream contains pure organic Argan Oil.
  5. It is quite affordable at £1.85 for a 75ml tube.
  6. This product contains no unnecessary nasties. It is completely natural, vegan and has not been tested on animals.

 

CONS
  1. I am not a fan of the lid. I prefer using hand creams that can be pushed open. Having to be open this completely every time I need to be use can be annoying especially when on the move.

Overall, I really like this Inecto Argan Hand & Nail Cream. It keeps my dry hands moisturised and nourished. I recommend it to anyone looking for a new hand and nail cream to try this season. This Inecto Argan Hand & Nail Cream is worth every penny spent and more.
