Our hands have plenty of daily responsibilities, from holding our smartphones to showing off our latest nail art feats. We keep them protected with this Parisian brand’s bestselling hand cream, which beats back dryness faster than you can text “OMG!”.
I have used many different hand creams over the years but with varying degrees of effectiveness. Sometimes they take what feels like a week to rub in and then still just sit there on your hands, getting washed off if you wash dishes or wash your hands after going to the toilet, some feel like they sink straight in but don't actually feel as though they have any beneficial effect. So, I thought I would have a look at what is available on the Birchbox website.
The one I was going to get originally had good reviews but there was a waiting list for it and I didn't want to wait any longer than necessary as my hands and nails were in a sorry state and needed some emergency TLC, so I carried on looking and came across the Nuxe handcream. I read all the reviews and didn't see a negative word said against it so I thought I'd give it a go. And I'm glad I did!
A part of one of my jobs is using a pot wash machine and whilst your hands don't actually go into the body of the machine itself, they do come into contact with the dishes as they go into the machine and come out the other end. They are wet, hot and contain some of the detergent chemicals. This combination does your hands no good at all and very soon the skin on my hands is dry, the skin on my fingers slits and cracks, my nails flake, split and become very brittle and are just an all round sorry sight.
The very first time I used this cream it got sucked straight into my skin. It was like finding a bottle of cold water after walking in the sun all day. And it didn't feel like it was sitting on the surface forming a barrier either. My hands immediately felt softer and after a few days use my nails are looking in a much better condition. In the few days since it has arrived and I've used it my skin feels more supple and much softer. It's great for your cuticles too. Mine aren't as hard as they used to be before I began using this cream.
I've even let a couple of my colleagues at work try it and they thought is was great too! One of them was male and he said he liked the smell (I think it's neither a masculine nor feminine fragrance so helps to reduce that stigma that seems to still stand of men using hand cream). One of my colleagues said she might buy some!
I wholeheartedly recommend this hand cream. It's nothing short of miraculous!
I got this originally as a sample from a beauty box and I fell in love with it so I simply had to buy a full size of this.
It smells amazing (honey esque) and it really is great at combatting dryness on your hands. I actually find that since starting to use this I apply handcream less throughout the day as I dont need to anymore. It also works well to concentrate on a particulary dry patch of your hands.
This hand cream not only smells great but left my hands feeling silky smooth and soft
Gorgeous scent, quickly absorbed and it leaves hands so soft! The name is correct - it really is like a dream!5
