Hand salvation!

Well, I don’t know about you, but I am just about ready for this weather to warm up! This ‘yo-yo’ing’ that the temperature is putting us through is doing nothing for my skin, especially my hands! They are constantly dry.

My 150ml l'occitane shea butter hand cream

This is the saviour of my hands! It’s the l’occitane shea butter hand cream for dry skin…I cannot tell you how amazing it is for this time of year! I first got this in a gift set which I received for one of my birthdays (thank you to my friend Ling!). After being super impressed, I decided to get the largest one to keep on my bed side table (while a smaller one is in my handbag). The larger one pictured (150ml) retails at £17.50 and the smaller one (30ml) retails at £7.50. It’s a bit more expensive than most high street hand creams but worth a go if you have the spare cash.

Firstly, it smells amazing! Secondly (and more importantly), it hydrates my skin back to life! It is slightly greasy, so for those of you who aren’t keen on that feeling it may not be for you, but at this time of year and when the weather isn’t that great, it really does its job! And thirdly, it does get absorbed into the skin within a minute or so, a small amount goes far!

I definitely recommend it for anyone who has dry skin on their hands or working in an environment where they find their hands getting tight and dry

Hope it was helpful!! =) x
