Top 5 hand creams for winter
June 28, 2016
Winter is lovely for so may things; Roast dinners and red wine, big coats and boots, hot chocolates snd marshmallows. But it’s also not so lovely for some things; not being summer, no beach days, and especially your skin. It’s so dry! Like, all the time. And because the only skin we show during winter is our face and of course our hands, making sure they’re well moisturised will keep the ensure the only crackling you encounter is with your roast pork. To keep those hands their delicious summer selves, we have put together the Top Five Hand Creams for winter.
For the nourishment. We love it when a spade is called a spade. Getting nailed at work? Get Nailed at Work. Say. It. How. It. Is. Always. Which is why we’re loving this Soap & Glory ‘Hand Food’ because it is exactly that. It’s lightweight and lovely and smells so uniquely yummy, and incredibly nourishing. Lather it on before bed and you’ll wake up with the most delightfully hydrated hands in the morning. Magic.
For the smell. Because whilst there are so many lovely things about winter, it is pretty hard not to spend a few days here & there dreaming of summer. This is why we love this hand cream, if summer was a hand cream it would be this one. Well, a summer afternoon drinking a Pina Colada to be exact. It is also non-greasy and absorbs very quickly, the only problem with this one is it will take a lot of will-power not to eat it.
For the nostalgia, naturally. This beauty comes in Rose scented & Lemon scented and both will remind you of summer afternoons spent at your Grandma’s house. Its 98.3% natural, and made from lanolin. Which is the softest thing ever. Probably. It leaves your hands feeling super moisturised and you just warm and fuzzy all around. Oh and the packaging will make you want to get all folksy and spend the afternoon crocheting and drinking tea. Win, win.
For the price of a coffee (and nearly as addictive.). This super thick-and-creamy-but-not-at-all-greasy hand cream is such a winner won’t break the bank. Incredibly moisturising you’re hands will be left thinking winter never came, plus it is found in supermarkets Australia-wide so easy to get, cheap and incredibly effective… who could say no to that?
For the indulgence. This earthy scented, gorgeously packaged hand cream is the perfect lightweight cream for your handbag and will have you feeling like everyday is special. Which it is. It’s whipped cream texture moisturises wonderfully and the scent, oh the scent! We tip our cap to you if you can stop at just your hands for this one.
Whichever you choose make sure you’re using it morning, noon and night and protect those paws of yours against this Ice-Queen that is winter and remember- all of them work far better with perfectly polished claws. xx
