Hand cream is no luxury to me. I’m lazy about using gloves when washing the dishes, and wash my hands too many times in the day to count. All this results in dry skin on hands and a tight feeling to skin, not to mention a flakey white residue (yuk). Which is why I am addicted to hand cream, and whenever a sample is sent to me I try it straight away. This one from Summerdown mint has topped the charts for me at the moment… thick, creamy, very moisturising and gives a feeling of protecting the skin on hands.
The mint in Summerdown mint is grown in Hampshire, England, and is derived from the single estate Black Mitcham Mint grown on the Summerdown Farm there. The farm also grows lavender and chamomile as their ‘aromatic’ crop, along with the staple farm crops such as wheat and barley.
The combination of lemongrass and mint is uplifting, whilst avocado oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter moisturise, and aloe vera gel and pro vitamin B45 provide protection to the skin. To top it all, the cream doesn’t contain any petrochemicals, sulfates, parabens, or PEGs, so helps if you are trying to reduce usage of these.
It costs £16 for a 250ml bottle, and I have a feeling it will last a while because of the thick and creamy consistency, and the fact that it is very moisturising for dry hands like mine. There is nothing worse than a non-greasy hand cream not actually delivering on tackling dry skin.
