I'm not very religious when it comes to moisturising and I really should be. We all should be as a matter of fact. Skin tends to rip, tear and stretch easier (and messier...in terms of stretch marks) when we don't moisturize on a daily basis. When it comes to hands, when they're dry they feel sort of dirty and need a serious quenching. Besides the face, when meeting someone for the first time etc, they're going to notice your hands. If they're ashy...welll...it's sort of gross? I've been scouting for a good hand cream for a while. I LOVE the Bath & Body Works Hand Cream in Sweet Pea!! I actually bought one for my boo, and in that scent because I like it and it smells lovely!! :p
I came across Nivea Soft Face, Body, Hands Refreshingly Soft Moisturising Cream. It comes in a cute slender tube (easy to carry around in your car or handbag). It contains Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E for some super moisture and a bit of repair. They really don't kid when they say "refreshing". It's very moisturising and absorbs quickly and has absolutely no sticky or greasy feel! It really does provide a cooling sensation like a splash of cool water (don't expect the cooling sensation you get from menthol btw!!). It lasts LONG...almost the whole day I would say, so your hands don't have to feel that dry ickyness. It's not a designated hand cream as it can be used for your body and face as well which is great to quench any dry spots/patches anywhere on your body. I've tested it over and over on my face especially when I'm on the go and see a dry spot and I have not reacted to it whatsoever. It prevents any kind of dry/flaky look, and since it absorbs so quickly you won't be left looking shiny in the face! The cooling effect feels especially nice on the face as well!
It smells very clean and fresh but it's not strong. I find it smells like you've just sanitized your hands but more muted. The scent disappears after a few minutes anyway.
$33TTD (avg) in Superpharm, £2 in Boots and about $5USD.
Honestly a great product for a great price. Nivea usually has wonderful creams and lip balms anyway ;)
