A Closer Look: Hand Creams


I simply love hand creams and currently have a pretty healthy stash!  You can see what I had in my stash previously here.  I can honestly say it has just over doubled! Oops.

Lancome Nutrix Royal Mains Intense Nourishing & Restoring Hand Cream 100ml - a super rich and luxe cream which smells gorgeous and leaves the hands feeling deeply moisturised.

Barefoot Botanicals Rosa Fina anti-ageing Hand and Nail Cream 50ml - I reviewed this hand cream here. This product has been discontinued and the brand has been re-launched as Barefoot SOS. The hand cream can still be purchased on Amazon or Feel Unique.

Chandler Farm Lavender Hand Creme 88.7ml* - this came in the Vegan Cuts box I reviewed recently see here. A rich cream scented with lavender. I like to use this just before bed.

sk:n Anti-Ageing Hand Cream 50ml - a nice cream which moisturises the hands and nails leaving them with a light floral scent.

Neal's Yard Remedies Bee Lovely Hand Cream 50ml - this was a magazine freebie a while back. A great hand cream scented with orange which helps save the bees. 

Nuxe Reve de Miel Hand & Nail Cream 75ml - smells of honey and deeply moisturises the hands and nails. One of my all time favourites.

Mavala Hand Cream 30ml - this came in a gift pack. Deeply moisturises hands and nails.

Lj's Natural Solutions Soothing Organic Handbag Hand Lotion 60ml - a lotion scented with Lavender, Rosewood and Ylang Ylang essential oils.  See my review here.

Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Milk Hand Creme 30g - this one smells lush! I keep this one in my handbag for moisturising on the go!

Neom Inspiration Violet, Chamomile & Cedarwood Organic Hand Cream 50ml & Neom Complete Bliss Moroccan Blush Rose Organic Hand Cream 50ml - love both these. My all time favourite hand cream.  See my review of Complete Bliss here.

Conscious Skincare Soothing Hand Cream for Hard Working Hands 50ml* - a deliciously rich cream which is perfect for use after gardening.  See my review here.

Living Nature Nourishing Hand Cream 50ml* - one of my current favourite hand creams. One I'll definitely purchase when I reduce my stash.  See my review here.

Dr Organic Rose Otto Hand & Nail Cream 125ml - love everything I've tried from this cost conscious organic brand. Smells gorgeous and is lovely to use. Another one I'll definitely re-purchase.

Apivita Moisturising Hand Cream with Aloe & Honey 50ml* - this has a light texture and smells gorgeous.  See my mini review here.

Have you used any of these?  What's your favourite hand creams?  Do you have an addiction to hand creams like me?

  1. Oh my goodness Sandra that has to be the healthiest stash I've seen in a while! I've used the Nuxe handcream and do like it. I'm down to only a couple in my stash at the moment but have just ordered some from Crabtree and Eveyn to try (half price on Escentual!) xx

  2. I love the Dr Organic Rose Otto hand cream, but I actual use the skin lotion instead as I find it just as moisturising but you get 200ml instead of 125ml. The lavender skin lotion is my more favoured choice out of the two. My most favourite hand cream is Liz Earle Hand Repair, it's not sticky or greasy and it smells gorgeous too. It's much more expensive than Dr Organic but I just love it. I'm addicted to trying new hand creams!! Xx

  5. Ha ha - I've written a post this week about which hand creams I'm currently using and thought that 3 was bad!! The Apivita hand cream is my hand bag cream but I'm not really in love with it. I find it can leave my hands feeling a bit sticky after use x
