I have finally found the best hand cream ever. Aveeno. With Oatmeal extracts it promises to moisturise for up to 24 hours, forming a “protective glove”. Absorbing quickly and leaving skin soft. May I just add this post is not sponsored. I am just so happy to have hands that resemble that of a 35 year old girl and not of someone who is due a letter of congratulation from the Queen, that I thought I would share.
When we started sprucing up the apartment for viewings, packing to leave, making up cardboard boxes and cleaning like mad for days on end, my hands did not take kindly to all the abuse and ended up so chapped they felt raw and flaked like sawdust! So when we popped to the supermarket the other evening I was scouring the shelves for something to heal them. I did think of greasing them with vaseline and sleeping with cotton gloves on but they didn’t have any. Then I spotted this. No fancy label, no modern apothecary style packaging, just the promise of soft hands even after washing, and best luck it was on offer. With hands as rough as a ground worker and a tag line like that, how could I say no? I am pleased to report it is 100% true and my hands have never been softer.
As I am sure most of you are creative in some way, be it baking, crafting, art, gardening or DIY, and this involves much hand washing and drying, resulting in dry hands. I’m normally a sucker for a luxury hand cream which I sometimes buy for myself as a treat, often use twice then lose in one of my handbags. In the past I have favoured Clarins, Kiehls, Tokyo Milk (that packaging!) Although beautifully packaged and scented, most need re-applying throughout the day, now I have found one that only needs one application (which is also good for me as my beauty regime has no structure), some days I even forget my mascara! God bless those oat extracts, I highly recommend.
Do you have a secret beauty bargain to share?
