A NEW OBSESSION


There was a time when hand cream played absolutely no part in my beauty regime. It was only when I went a little stir-crazy over Soap & Glory, decided I needed to try absolutely everything from the brand and bought Hand Food that I realised, hey, this actually makes a pretty big difference! Since then I've added quite a few to my collection, so I'm going to talk you through my favourites.

The newest and one I'm reaching for quite a lot at the moment is the Caudalie Hand and Nail cream. It's a nice thick cream, with a gorgeous light blackcurrant scent. It also has avocado and shea butters, and is 98% natural. The Neom Complete Bliss Organic hand cream is one of my favourites for the evening as it has such a lovely, relaxing rose scent. It sinks in so quickly, and has acai extracts and argan oil which is great for tightening the skin, so definitely one for the slightly older hands.

Dream Cream from Lush is more of a body lotion but I do also occasionally use it as a hand cream if the mood strikes! If anyone suffers from eczema or irritable skin around their hands, this one is perfect for you as it's packed full of soothing ingredients such as oat milk, chamomile oil and rose water. I have neither of those, but it still makes for a really lovely cream!

Lastly, the Seascape Hand and Nail Cream I wrote about last month on the blog, I use especially if my nails are looking dry as I find this nourishes them the most. And of course, Soap & Glory Hand Food which doesn't need much of an introduction. This one is so cheap and cheerful, but really does the job so well with a gorgeous scent to boot. Have you tried any of these? What are your favourite hand creams?

  5. I think I own one hand cream and it's from bath & body works! I don't know why I never got into them as I've heard that your hands show your age so it's worth taking care of them! Now you've got me wondering if Sephora stocks Hand Food.

  6. I too used to ignore hand cream and now it is a favourite product of mine and I go through tubes like a crazy woman. Next on my list to try is going to be one from Laura Mercier I think.
