How Handy: Hand Treatments
This post is obviously meant to be – three hand products have landed through my door, so I thought I’d just do one post to cover all three.
While I’m so over all the cow puns with this range, it’s a lovely product. Despite the presence of lavender and grapefruit essential oils, it’s got a very light scent and nothing you’d associate with the alcohol waft you get with some anti-bacs. It doesn’t feel at all drying on the hands and yet it is completely non-tacky after a few seconds. There is nothing at all that stays sticky or obvious. I can’t say I notice it to be highly moisturising, but it’s certainly not drying in any way and it’s a great size for your handbag at 50ml. It’s £7 and launching HERE any day now.
I can’t pretend this is anything other than sheer indulgence. At £70 you can only treat it as such I guess. But..and there is a but.. you will be hard pushed to get softer hands with any other product. It’s genuinely quite astonishing.. but then, I would hope so for £70! Sensai Intensive Hand Treatment works on pigmentation, anti-ageing and skin texture; I haven’t long term tested it, but if you’re looking to treat yourself, I’d have to recommend as a gorgeous indulgence for your hands. The hand cream is HERE but if you want the gloves (how pretty) you have to buy at counter in Selfridges or Harrods.
This hasn’t launched here yet, but it’s full of promise. Sampar First Hands Cream again is a gorgeous texture with a very light, floral scent. There’s absolutely no stickiness (why can’t anyone make body creams like this?) so it’s just apply and go with no wait time for absorption. It claims to plump, tackle dark spots and wrinkles. Yes please, to all of those! I’ll keep you posted on when it launches.
