Hand cream is an extra luxury item for most, but ESSENTIAL for people dry places like Minnesota in the winter (my own personal hell) or Las Vegas year-round (take me back there! I don’t care if it’s dry, it’s fun!). For me, hand cream is also just… stick with me on this... kinda fun. We use our hands a lot, and it’s nice to be able to take care of them and get a burst of fragrance while we're at it. Lemme fill you in on my three faves…
- Tocca Crema da Mano - Hand Cream Cleopatra - $10, sephora.com
My best friend Amanda gave me this from her Birchbox because she doesn’t like the texture of lotions. O-M-G, this smells amazing, and the texture is what you expect from hand cream. This is the epitome of luxury, for the scent alone. Considering the perfume version of this is $68 for only 1.7oz… $10 for a 2oz tube of hand cream is a steal to add this gorgeous aroma to your life.
- The Body Shop Hand Cream in Coconut, Mango or Shea— $6, Ulta
This stuff is my #HolyGrail of all hand creams. I use the Coconut - it’s a light, natural coconut scent and… I’d recommend this to Amanda! After it goes on, it’s very matte. I can’t feel any slickness or gross lotion texture from this. It’s just ultra-softening. It makes my hands look younger, too.
- BLISS High Intensity Hand Cream - $9, Ulta
The most natural, delicious scent I just can’t place. Works great on cuticles. My one gripe is that this does have a slightly greasy after feel… but they claim it doesn’t, of course. Don’t be fooled! If you don’t mind this, it’s great.
