Ah, winter. You are pretty, but you are harsh – especially on my poor hands. But I will defeat you whilst smelling lovely.
If you love the scent of roses and the feel of soft hands, may I suggest Balance Me Rose Otto Hand Cream, £14.50? With its gorgeous blend of rose otto, palma rosa, and rose geranium essential oils, it’s a lovely natural scented hand cream with lanolin, camellia oil, and kukui nut oil to moisturise and protect hands, even in the harshest climate.
Those needing something effective and anti-ageing, Nivea Q-10 Age Defying Hand Cream, £1.49, will make hands look younger almost instantly. Packed with glycerine and Argan oil, it quickly gets to work hydrating and soothing dry, sore hands. I always keep the travel size version in my handbag.
With Ginkgo Biloba and shea butter, Rituals Ginkgo’s Secret Caring Hand Balm, £10.00, smells amazing and works well. It sinks in well and never leaves a greasy residue, so it’s perfect if you’re at work. I’m never without a tube of this in my desk drawer.
