We tried and tested some hand creams in search of the best smelling, most hydrating & protective hand creams to keep our hard working hands beautiful throughout the winter months, and these were our faves…
I’m a sucker for anything that smells good, and this aromatic hand balm has such a gorgeous citrus, herbaceous scent (Mandarin rind, Rosemary leaf, Cedar atlas)! It’s a splurge for sure, but I honestly smile every time I use it, and that’s enough for me. It’s super hydrating and doesn’t leave any sticky residue.
The Aveda Hand Relief cream is seriously rich and thick in texture meaning a small amount goes a long way. Andiroba oil & other plant products nourish and soften your hands. This also smells beautiful, but not quite as heavenly as the Aesop (IMO), however the moisture levels are up there and it almost feels as though it protects your hands in cold weather.
This is a great product for super dry hands and rough skin. You only need to use a small amount, so the price isn’t bad at all! Perfect for anyone who uses their hands a lot, or who wants to protect them from exposure to harsh elements – it really makes a huge difference! The scent is okay… but this is more of a practical product. Ingredients include avocado oil, sesame oil & natural wax.
For super soft hands, this cream is the one – and it’s a new limited edition special! The texture is like velvet, and the rose scent is gentle and beautiful – probably because the roses have been picked at first bloom! Perfect for when you want to add a little luxury to your day.
So there you have it – our recommendations for the winter months! Have you tried any of these or do you have a favourite you’d like to share? We’d love to hear from you!
