The Best of 2011 - Hands

Introducing: The Best of 2011! A Collection of my favourite products that I swear by.

One thing I get constantly complimented on is how soft my hands are. Whilst part of it comes from good genes (thanks Mum) and staying out of the sun, what really makes the difference is the products I use.

Hemp Hand Proctector (100ml) $21.95 - From the Body Shop.
This moisturiser is very different from products I have used in the past. Its very thick & a little goes a long way. I was first introduced to this one by my friend Rachael who swears by it. I keep it in my desk at work & in the mornings put a pea sized amount on the back of my hand & rub in. It keeps my hands moisturised and soft for the whole day, regardless of how many times I wash them. The one down side is the smell, its not as 'pretty' as other hand creams I've used in the past, but as the Body Shop lady said 'You can have the pretty smell or you can have a cream that works" and I think that is a very good point! And dont worry, the earthy smell dissapears after 10 minutes!

La Source Hand Recovery (100g) $29.95 - From Crabtree & Evelyn.
Hand Recovery is a hand exfoliator. It cleanses, exfoliates and moisturises your hands with a blend of sea salt, algae, shea butter and lavender oil. It smells beautiful & gives instant results. Just rub a small amount of this gritty scrub onto your hands, rinse off & pat down. Follow with Hand Therapy or your preferred moisturiser.

La Source Hand Therapy (50ml) $17.95 - From Crabtree & Evelyn.
This hand cream is beautiful. It has the same relaxing sea air fragrance containing lavender, mint and herbs as the Hand Recovery so you wont be doubling up on scents. Its a deep moisturiser that doesnt leave a greasy finish. It comes in a metal tube which I like & is a beautiful sky blue colour, makingi t both effective & aesthetically pleasing.

Do you have a hand product that rocks your world? If so, share the love & let us know in the comments!
