I garden.

I bake.

I have a toddler.

Basically, if my hands could sever themselves from my body, they would. That’s how abused they are.

Needless to say, winter and my hands are not besties either. So I’ve spent years looking for the “perfect” hand cream. For me, that means the following:

It has to be really (REALLY) moisturizing.

It has to penetrate immediately (I HATE greasy hands. Hate ‘em).

It has to smell heavenly, without being too over-powering.

And it has to have a price point that allows me to keep myself fully stocked all year round.

Well, hello!

People, this is the best hand cream out there. It’s all of the above, with the extra-added bonus of coming in an attractive package that makes it a great gift too.

A  5-ounce tube is less than $30 – which sounds high but you use so little that it lasts a really long time. It also comes in a “handy” (wink-wink!) travel size for a neat $10 so you can keep a tube almost anywhere – your purse, car, nightstand, kitchen drawer, etc.


Happy Friday!

    Hi Sheri, I agree with you. That is a beautiful hand cream. It’s one that I use. I didn’t know it comes in a travel size. I’ll have to look out for that.

    • sheri silver on February 3, 2012 at 4:22 pm

      Yes! It’s the perfect “purse” size! 🙂

    This is my favorite hand cream. Love it! (And the packaging makes me happy, too.) I have to admit it took me a while to be able to pronounce the name, though. 😉

      Oh I LOVE the packaging – it makes me happy too! 🙂

    Oooh, this is MY favorite too! I was given a sample while in the store one day, and I’ve never looked back. I used to own a scent of theirs that was my favorite perfume (this coming from someone who dislikes all perfume), and then shortly after buying it, they discontinued it! That was 7 or so years ago, and it has never returned. I’m paranoid they may one day cancel this product, so I keep it well stocked. It’s a great gift too.

      Yes, I give it as a gift all the time too!
