Hand cream isn't a product I have ever used regularly, however since receiving this tube, it's been living on my desk and in my handbag and I keep finding myself reaching for it.
The recent cold weather plus working full time and typing constantly in my spare time leaves my hands feeling tired, looking dull, dry and dare I say it... old. I read only a few weeks ago that your hands are the first part of your body to show signs of ageing, so I'm extra conscious about looking after my hands now, and this cream is my first attempt at doing so.
Roger and Gallet are a brand I have heard plenty about, but never really dabbled with, but knowing they are a well established brand (since 1862!) who pride themselves in giving a little bit of luxury with their products gave me all of the convincing I needed to try out the cream and left me wanting to try even more from the range.
The first thing I noticed about this was the beautiful packaging, which is very chic yet still pretty and girly, I'm definitely not ashamed to pull this out of my handbag at any time of the day. Secondly, on application, the scent really caught my attention, a wonderful mixture of fruity and floral which is fresh yet not overpowering, and very pleasant to probably anyone's taste.
I was very pleased to find that the cream isn't greasy on the hands, and it dries really quickly, which is a necessity for someone who's busy and needs to top up and go. The Shea butter and apricot kernel oil are wonderful natural ingredients which help to sooth, nourish and hydrate the hands, which is just what I need at the moment. The feeling after using is quite addictive, and I find myself topping up every few hours during the day.
After seeing quite an improvement in the appearance of the skin on my hands and a big improvement in the feel of the skin, I am adamant I will keep on using this and really try to take care of my hands from now on... it's quite strange how they're one of the most seen parts of the body, yet they're easily ignored.
Do you use hand cream?
