Don’t let your hands tell your age. Just like your face, neck and chest area the sooner you begin to take care of them the better. I’m going to share some of hand creams I’ve tried and like.
The “Feels Good and Has a Nice Scent” bunch
They all feel luxurious and have aromas that I love (which usually involves flowers).
The scent of Elemis Jasmine & Rose Hand and Nail Cream (read prior review) includes Jasmine and Rose. There is a combination of Omega rich oils including nourishing Argan Oil (rich in Vitamin E and Omega 6) and protective Abyssinian Oil (replaces lost lipids). Jasmine and White Lotus Flower Milks soften and calm dry skin. $32 for 3.7 oz/ 100 ml, available at Nordstrom‘s website and TimetoSpa
Rituals Ginkgo’s Secret Hand Balm is enriched with Ginseng (*the symbol for immortality) and Ginkgo Biloba (*known to strengthen the blood vessels). * Borrowed from Barneys website. $17 for 2.5 oz., available on the websites of Rituals and Barneys New York, Rituals stores in New York and in Barneys stores.
LoLLIA by Margot Elena Calm Shea Butter Handcreme contains Hyacinth, Sparkling Citrus, and Vetiver, with rich Shea Butter, Macadamia Nut and Avocado Oils. $25 for 4 oz, available at the LoLLIA website and Neiman Marcus.
The hand creams that are a little richer
Gold Bond Ultimate Intensive Healing Hand Cream has Vitamins B, C and E as well as moisturizing ingredients. Purchase at drugstores for around $5 for 3 oz.
Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Fast Absorbing Hand Cream – don’t be thrown off by the inclusion of “Fast Absorbing” in the name. This hand cream is hydrating but not too thick. Purchase at drugstores for around $6 for 3 oz.
Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream Fragrance Free is thicker than it’s cousin and better for very dry, chapped hands. It’s rich so I like to use it at bedtime. Purchase at drugstores for around $6 for 3 oz.
Bath and Body Works True Blue Spa Super Rich Hand Cream Fragrance Free. This contains Shea Butter and Vitamin E, feels rich and absorbs easily. $13 for 2.5 oz, purchase at Bath and Body Works.
So what are your thoughts? Do you have a favorite hand cream? I’m always on the look out for a good hand cream!
