It is so cold in London right now, and one thing I find always happens in the freezing weather is that my hands start to suffer. Hand cream is something everyone should have with them at all times, guys included! You see the skin on our hands contains no sebaceous glands (sorry for throwing the word sebaceous in there without warning) this means they don't get oily and is one of the reasons our hands are one of the first places our skin shows signs of age. So lets talk hand creams.
Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm - I love Aesop products, their natural goodness and the simplicity of their design I find most appealing. This particular tube is filled with more of a balm than a cream. It is greaseless and really acts as a barrier against the elements with lots of healing properties if the cold has already got the better of you. £18.00 (28.00)
Unusually rich-but not greasy at all hand cream spf10 - Kiehl's products can do no wrong in my eyes really (except be way more expensive here in Europe than in the USA!). This again is a great all rounder and one that I would recommend to the guy's. It is scentless, with very unassuming packaging, it is not greasy and it has spf10 in it, perfect for protecting your hands from sun damage! £10.00 ($16.00)
Lavender Hand Cream, Jurlique - This is my favourite hand cream. It melts into your skin a dream and it smells like lavender, obviously, which is so soothing. The formulation is so light and the calming effect is has on your skin lasts for ages. £17.00 ($26.00)
Almond Coconut milk Hand creme, Laura Mercier - If you have ever used any of the Laura Mercier skincare or body products you will know that they smell out of this world. There is no way you will be able to use the cream in the vicinity of another human being without them asking what that incredible smell is. Reason alone to shell out for this luxurious treat. Oh, its a very lovely hand cream too! £13.00 ($20.50)
I hope you all have a lovely cosy weekend, whatever the weather where you are!
