Hello, I’m Abz, and I’m obsessed with hand cream.
Now that may be a bit over dramatic but I’ve gone from zero to 100 when it comes to hand cream. I used it in the evenings after doing my skincare but that was about it. If it was there to use in a restaurant toilet, I wouldn’t use it, free mini hand creams in hotel rooms, wouldn’t take them, I just wasn’t interested. What changed was when I started to use them at work. In the Look Fantastic Advent Calendar I had last year (That’s one of the best things I’ve ever bought, I go on about it all the time!) I got a deluxe mini of the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. Already having a hand cream on the go at home but desperate to use something from a brand I’ve wanted to try out for so long, I took it to work. I got into the habit of using it every time I left the room and now here I’m am, three hand creams down in five months and in need of a fourth.
Over the last few months I’ve had chance to test out a few of the skin saviours and the ones I’ve loved have been:
Being by Sanctuary Spa – Chilli Mango and Tonka Bean: It has a really strong smell of mango (sometimes it is a bit too much) and for summer I feel like this will be the one. You just need a small amount otherwise it can get a bit greasy but an all round good egg.
Soap and Glory Hand Food – Sugar Crush: This scent is one of my favourites, like sherbet. it’s really thick so it might be a bit much when the weather gets hotter, but for right now, it’s cracking.
The Body Shop – Coconut: I love the Body Shop hand creams, all scents are amazing and they’re the perfect size. I think the coconut one is my favourite though, it’s the one I keep going back to.
I have one hand cream that’s on my wishlist – the L’Occitane Almond Delicious Hand Cream. I’ve heard good things about it and I’d quite like to give it a go. (look at me getting excited about hand cream!)
