If your hands are feeling very dry from the cold weather, then this is the blogpost for you. Here's my current stash of hydrating skin saviours that I highly recommend if you want to give your hands some serious TLC.
L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream (30ml, £8, link)
One of the first hand creams I ever tried and it's still one of the best IMO. With a 20% shea butter formula, this baby will instantly transform the driest hands into the softest things you've ever touched. It's thick but sinks into the skin instantly and with zero greasiness or stickiness.
Bodhi & Birch Lime Blossom Protecting Hand Serum* (30ml, £22, link)
A beautiful luxury and pampering hand serum with the most divine uplifting scent. It features Olive Squalene Oil and Rosehip Oil which are both well known for not only their high moisturising abilities but also their anti-aging properties. An excellent choice for those wanting to protect their hands from free radicals damage and to keep them looking young and feeling supple.
Best Before Bedtime
Odylique Lemon Butter Hand Smoothie* (60ml, £12, link)
This one is for all you citrus/lemon fans - a seriously rich and ultra hydrating blend featuring the likes of Cocoa Butter, Avocado Oil, Sea Buckthorn Oil and Calendula, plus pure essential oils for a zesty and uplifting scent. Thick in texture, but once it's rubbed in, it gets to work and feels very nourishing. It's also 93% organic and vegan friendly.
Pinks Boutique Hand Balm* (50g, £21, link)
A super thick balm comprised of Organic Shea Butter, Sunflower, Apricot Kernel, Jojoba Oils and essential oils, this is the one to reach for when you really need a product to sink in and do its magic slowly overnight. I love waking up to soft hands whenever I use this and the tub lasts absolutely ages because the tiniest amount goes such a long way.
Bee Good Honey, Borage & Echium Intensive Hand Repair* (50ml, £12, link)
Intensive by name and intensive by nature, this hand repair from Bee Good can also be used on feet, elbows and knees to combat dryness and repair chapped damage. I find that this one is particularly good for when I have ezcema flare ups too because it's very soothing and kind to irritated and sensitive skin.
LUSH Dream Cream (240g, £11.95, link)
A firm favourite in my stash, I use Dream Cream as a body lotion and sometimes as a hand cream, especially if I'm travelling. It has lots of soothing ingredients like Oat Milk, Rose Water and Chamomile to calm down sensitive skin, whilst giving it a moisturising boost at the same time. There's also a self-preserving option available for those wanting to avoid unnecessary ingredients such as parabens.
