Pour les mains: Hand creams to carry through the cold

As the months get colder I find myself constantly reaching for some kind of moisturizer to soothe my dry hands. Sure, a regular moisturizer could do the job but I find that these, my top three hand creams, keep your hands soft and hydrated, without all the excess grease that you can often find with butters or oils.

My absolute favourite has to be The Body Shop’s Hemp hand cream. At $20 it’s the cheapest of the three but the best part is that it literally smells like Christmas to me. I’m not sure why, perhaps because I spend a little too much time in the store during Christmas period!

I like to have more than one moisturizer in my collection so that they’re easily accessibly throughout the day. The Hemp stays at my bedside as it’s the most hydrating which will leave my hands feeling super soft in the mornings. I keep the Biotherm one at my desk at home, it’s refreshing  clean and the least greasy of them all, perfect for when you’re handling paper or keyboards. The Crabtree and Evelyn Hand Therapy is my go-to for my desk at work. Beautiful packaging, a delicate, feminine scent and immediate, intense moisture.

Which would you pick?
