For every day use, I have a tub of this on my desk at work:
All for Eve Hand Cream. Simple, easily absorbed, and beautifully herbal-scented, this is a great all rounder, and everyone at work who has tried it has ended up buying a tube. In fact, it's the most seen beauty product in my office. I think the fact that all the profits go to help The Eve Appeal make this a simple decision for me. A "feel good" product that actually does good, it's a no-brainer. At £7.50 for 100mls, it's an affordable treat too.
Most times, I have a tube of this in my bag at all times too:
Liz Earle Hand Repair. When I first tried this hand cream - must be about 12 years ago now - this was a revolutionary texture for me. It's matte, and leaves your hands soft and moisturised, without ever feeling greasy, which is utterly wonderful. Again, it's easily absorbed and with a lovely herbal scent. A 50 ml tube of this will set you back £8.95, so it's a bit more pricey than the All for Eve, but it's a very handy size for carrying around with you.
When my hands really need a bit of TLC I use a dollop of this:
Lanolips Wild Rose Balm Intense. Which is an incredibly rich, thick, even dense, balm of medical-grade lanolin which requires warming in the palms of your hands before it becomes soft enough to be spreadable onto your skin. Once that's done though, you're rewarded with a rose-scented treatment cream that's an incredible treat for parched skin. It's fabulous on dry cuticles and anywhere you have dry, parched or even cracked skin. It costs £8.95 for 50mls , but it's also available in a less intense version for dry skin which is £9.95 for 120 mls, making that one a bargain. I find the smell of this one extremely (and randomly) nostalgic, in that it smells - ever so slightly - like the plastic they used to make Sindy's out of.
Yes, I am a weird. What are your recommendations for handcreams?
The Fine Print: These are all products I've quite happily spent my own pennies one. Make of that what you will ...
