My Top 5 Hand Creams

Regular readers will probably know that  a good hand cream is a must have for me. If I could have only one beauty product with  me in my bag, that’d be it (and a lip balm, if I can have two).

I have very dry skin, especially on the hands, and I love to re-apply the cream whenever I need to do it or feel like doing it.

This is why I’ve decided to share my personal top 5 hand creams. Unfortunately, most of them are not cheap but I,  personally, am ready to pay for the quality.

It is probably my favourite hand cream ever, it instantly makes the skin feel moisturized and smooth, such a relief, especially in the cold(er) months. Plus I could totally tell that my nails were in much better condition when I was using it.

The price is £24 from Feel Unique

How cute does this new  Shea Butter & Honey (gentle limited editions) collection look like?

I like the bears and bees on the tubes, absolutely adorable. I am also a big fan of honey body products, so this looks like an exciting launch.

This collection will be available from 17th January and will include the following products:

 Honey Whipped Body Cream (125ml – £16 / €21.95)

Now this sounds like something I would like. According to the brand it should be “as light as air and incredibly soft”, the texture is promised to melt into the skin.  It would make a very appropriate product for cold winter months.

 Honey Hand Cream (30ml – £8 / €10.50)

One more product that I wouldn’t mind having in my handbag, I love L’Occitane’s hand creams.

It’s easier to tell what  is not inside my handbag… Among others things, I always have a hand cream with me.  This is why small sized hand creams are always welcomed.

I’ve picked two L’Occitane mini-sized hand creams the other day to carry them around with me. I’ve got a  Rose Hand Cream because I love everything with a rose scent and a Shea Butter Hand Cream which is made for dry skin.

Rose Hand Cream has a scent of Grasse rose, the Bulgarian rose, the Moroccan rose and the Turkish rose which I absolutely love. The cream itself is light but pretty moisturizing.

As for Shea Butter Hand Cream, it is
