Hand creams are an essential for me in the colder months and I’m sure we can all agree that we’d like to have nourished hands without the sticky feel that many hand creams have.
That’s why I decided to show you my favourite handbag-friendly hand creams this winter. They are moisturising, non-greasy and heavenly-scented.
It’s no secret that L’Occitane create some of my favourite hand moisturisers, the formula is gorgeous, the scents are like no others and they feel incredibly comfortable on the skin. I guess that’s the reason why I’m currently using two of their gems.
Arlésienne Velvet Hand Cream is made of extracts of Rose from Grasse, Sweet Violet and Saffron from Provence and has a subtle floral fragrance that lingers wherever you go. It’s beautiful and mysterious, delicate but surprising.
Jasmin-Immortelle-Neroli is part of their recent Pierre Hermé Paris collaboration and reveals a soft scent of white flowers bouquet. It contains Shea Butter, Jasmine Flower Absolute, Neroli Essence, Corsican Immortelle Essential Oil. Another floral and feminine scent with sensual musky notes, soft, sunny, elegant and a bit sweet.
I know that I’m not describing a perfume but if you try any L’Occitane hand cream, you’ll know what special part the scent is having here.
Another non-greasy and lightweight hand cream that I fell in love with in the past couple of months is The Body Shop Frosted Plum Hand Cream. It has a fruity-floral scent with notes of Plum, Peony and Magnolia. Contains Plum Extract from Turkey and Community Fair Trade Soya Oil.
I like picking up my hand creams around Christmas time, so that they can remind me of the holidays whenever I’m using them and this one brings me back to Munich and the Christmas markets…good times.
I’m in love with these hand creams because they don’t leave a sticky residue, they keep my hands feeling incredibly soft throughout the day, they all have gorgeous scents that are not too overpowering, they are lightweight and get absorbed instantly.
Hope you like these treats in a tube, they are a wonderful gift to yourself or a lady you appreciate for soft hands with divine fragrance!
