- Product Focus: Hand Cream...

With the temperature outside dropping here in the UK and the central heating being switched on, it's super important to keep skin hydrated. Dry, chapped hands are common in the colder months, making hand cream a staple in my bag and on my bedside table. In this post I will show you a few of my current favourites.

(L-R):

1. Soap & Glory Hand Food, £2.50, (50ml)
If you're a fan of Soap & Glory's original sweet scent, then this is for you. This hand cream provides a great amount of moisture and, whilst the strong scent may be too overpowering for some, at only £2.50 is super affordable!

2. Laidbare In Safe Hands Sunflower Hand Cream, £10*, (50ml)
This hand cream has a very fresh, light scent making it perfect for everyday use. It absorbs easily and is also great to use on feet!

3.Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Intensive Moisturizing Hand Treatment, part of a set*, (30ml)
If you're hands desperately require some TLC, I thoroughly recommend this hand cream. I can confirm that it does what it says on the tin tube and is impressively effective!

4. AAA Juniper & Lemon Luxury Hand Cream, part of a set, (60ml)
This product really does ooze luxury! This Juniper & Lemon fragrance is my favourite out of a set of three (which you can see here) as it's floral yet fresh. I would recommend using this before bed as the scent is extremely relaxing!

Overall, I use all 4 of these often and would recommend them all. Hand cream is such a useful product and I'd love to extend my collection. I have my eye on The Body Shop's range, Crabtree & Evelyn's and also L'Occitane's - which reminds me, I haven't yet got Marie Claire's latest freebie!
