I’m a little obsessive about hand creams. I hate my hands to be dry, so at any given time I have at least 2 within my reach! My weapons of choice right now are Natio Lavender & Rosemary hand cream and Wellness SPF hand cream. So here goes with my current favourites:
Solace Aromatherapy Vanilla & Ylang Ylang Hand & Nail Cream (Priceline)
Best for: Those who like a sweet-smelling rich hand cream
This is a thick & rich hand cream great for super dry hands and dry cuticles, the Ylang Ylang oil makes it extra moisturising.
Gadi 21 Minerals Hand Lotion (Gadi 21 Minerals website/House of Fraser)
Best for: If you like moisture, but prefer a light absorbent texture. Lovely to apply overnight, leaves skin silky smooth
A moisturising hand lotion with a runnier than usual consistency with a light soothing fragrance – a little goes a long way.
Hand Therapy 2 in 1 Hand & Nail Cream (Superdrug – UK)
Best for: Those moments when you can’t stand for your hands to be dry, but don’t want to waste your luxury hand cream
A basic but effective hand cream, light and easily absorbed. Not the prettiest of fragrances, I use this one if I want some moisture, but am not bothered about it being washed off right afterwards.
Jo Malone Lime, Basil & Mandarin Body & Hand Lotion (Jo Malone website)
Best for: A wonderful unique, fruity & herbal fragrance
My favourite of the bunch, I love how this smells. I also own the cologne in the same fragrance and love to layer the two together. Deceptively moisturising, a lovely treat.
Natio Wellness Hand Cream SPF15 (Natio website)
Best for: Everyday hand cream for the summer, supporting Australian brands
Particularly rich and luxurious, this hand cream not only protects from the sun with SPF 15 it also provides antioxidants to the skin with pomegranate. May take a few minutes to absorb, but definitely worth the wait. A slightly sweet fruity fragrance that actually smells like Pomegranate!
Natio Lavender and Rosemary Hand and Nail Cream (Natio website)
Best for: An everyday all rounder
If like me you prefer fresh, herby scented products, this will do you nicely. Moisturising but not too heavy, I really notice that my hands stay moisturised when I use this. I notice some flexibility added to my nails when I use it everyday and love the plant extracts it contains.
Til next time,
