It’s approaching that time of year when the air outside is cooler and the heating is on inside and my hands start to suffer, not to mention our obsession with frequently washing our hands or using anti-bacterial gels.

Here’s 3 of my favourite hand creams which all have different qualities which I use for different reasons, some I use plentiful and some sparingly but that’s just based on cost, the more expensive hand creams I tend to use as “treatments” as they include luxury ingredients and are quite pricey.

Dr Sebagh – High Maintenance Anti-ageing care – prevents the first sign of ageing. Leaves my hands with a matte finish which look and feel soft, feels like I am wearing a glove. I keep this one on my dressing table as a “as I leave the house” and “before bed” hand cream. Read my review of High Maintenance here

Soap and Glory – Hand Dream A 5-in-1 hand cream encourages cell renewal which contains ultra nourishing oils. It’s highly fragranced with the original S&G scent, it absorbs quickly. This is my “throw in my hand bag” and apply during the day if I remember hand cream. I’m not sure how effective it is as a treatment but it certainly softens my hands after a hand wash.

Aurelia – Aromatic Repair & Brighten Perfect for pigmentation and highly moisturising. does not contain any synthetic ingredients with key ingredients such as Sea Daffodile, Baobab and Red Algae. This is my “hand treatment” treat kind of cream when I have time for an experience – the essential oils are very calming. Read my review of Aromatic Repair & Brighten here

So there you have it, my 3 rotating hand creams…what are you favourites?

Advanced anti-Ageing Care. A quickly absorbed non greasy intensively moisturising hand cream. Provides an invisible silken glove of protection and long term hydration. Expect immediate beauty to the appearance of your hands and be confident of long lasting results.

The Science Bit:
An exciting breakthrough in anti-ageing hand care. This Hand Made Crème prevents the 1st signs of ageing.

My Verdict:
Wow! this has just pushed my all time favourite hand cream off of the top spot! This hand cream delivers on ALL of it’s promises. It’s so highly moisturising my hands feel hydrated for hours on end. It is non-greasy but leaves a satisfying film like glove all over without feeling greasy or sticky. The texture is thick and creamy, the smell is gorgeous – reminds me of really nice smelling soap, a clean feminine kinda scent. The packaging is really cool, it’s like a giant toothpaste tube with it’s metallic silver and white/red branding and flip top lid. There isn’t anything not to love about this amazing hand cream!

Summary:
The results speak for themselves, this cream leaves my hands with a nice matte finish yet look and feel soft and silky as if I am wearing a glove. My skin looks healthier, much smoother and a few years younger! I keep this one on my dressing table to apply in the morning before I leave home and last thing at night. It’s a little pricey at £35 but matches it’s performance and high tech ingredients. I will be buying another tube of this hand magic when this one finishes.
