I use alot of hand creams, mostly when I'm at work due to constantly washing my hands. Here are a few picks of my favourites that I've used over the years and can always fall back on. I'm sure I've left a few out I just cannot remember them. But these 5 are the stand outs:
Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Hand Therapy (or the lavender version. Wish it was a flip top, I've lost the little screw top so many times & had to chase it down)
L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream (love the smell of this, same comments as above about the little screw top)
LUSH Lemony Flutter Cuticle Cream (not great for travelling but great for do-it-yourself manicures)
AHAVA Mineral Hand Cream (love the smell & its a lotion with alot of moisturizing properties. I'm currently using this hand lotion! I just wish it had a flip top.)
Nivea SOS Hand Cream (excellent hand cream for the price and yay it has a flip top)
What are your favourite hand creams? Do tell, no need to keep it a secret:)


  1. I still need to try L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream but so far I like Garnier hand cream for very dry skin (red one)

  2. Clarins have a good one. I also love the one from OPI in tropical citrus, smell soo good.

  3. Glysomed is one of my favorites! It's inexpensive and the silicone locks in moisture really well.

    I like to put it on my hands in the winter, right before I put on my gloves/mittens and my hands are soft all day!

  4. I used to use L'Occitane's Shea Butter Hand Cream. In fact, I've still one more little tube stashed somewhere.

    But lately, I've been using Rituals' Ginkgo's Secret that has Ginseng and Ginkgo Biloba. It works great and it smells divine. I've actually been thinking of writing a review on it soon.

    Have a great weekend!
