TOP PICKS: Hand Creams
Did you know that your hands are one of the first body parts to your reveal your age? We slather (often expensive) creams over our face, eyes and necks and give our hair TLC with oils and treatments but often forget about our hands.
The hardest working part of your body needs loving and it needs it multiple times a day, but not with any old hand cream! A hand cream should moisturise and nourish your hands without leaving them feeling greasy. Absorption needs to be quick, the scent should be nice and subtle and you shouldn’t have to pay an arm (or should I say hand) and a leg for it.
There are so many hand creams out there and to choose one can be overwhelming, and that’s where I come in. As your personal guinea-pig I am here to test and trial all beauty products and will only share the best of the best with you.
Over the last few months I’ve given a ton of hand creams a whirl and have finally chosen my top 5! Drumroll…..
The Aromatherapy Company Therapy Range Hand Cream

Bath & Body Works Sweet Pea Nourishing Hand Cream
I have to thank my friend Katie for getting me onto this cream, it’s one of my all-time favourites. The moisturising shea butter and vitamin E absorb quickly into the skin, leaving hands feeling soft, smooth and nourished. The scent is subtle and beautiful – a blend of sweet pea, juicy raspberries and pear. Did I mention that is an absolute bargain?!
