Since it is finals season (nearly over thank goodness!) I am reminded by my terrible habit- picking at my cuticles due to stress. I always try and keep hand cream with me to prevent me from being able to do this.
I have two favorites when it comes to hand creams- I honestly swear by them. I have yet to find a hand cream team I like better. There are two creams and one scrub that I use in order to keep my hands and cuticles soft as can be!
First up is the Ultimate Strength Hand Slave by Kiehl’s.
I usually keep this one in my purse or school bag. I find that I never have problems with it exploding so it is the best for a bag. It absorbs into your hands fast and keeps them pretty well hydrated. I find it to be less greasy than other hand creams. I keep the smaller, 2.5 oz, with me- it is the perfect size.
This is the cream on my bedside table and on my desk. I have it in both the pump and the tube. I find the pump best- the tube always seems to break open if I put it in my bag. Nevertheless, the cream itself is a savior. I first discovered it while in England last April. My hands were in desperate need one day while in the city of Bath and this ended up being the cure. Again, it is not very greasy and I find it holds in the moisture the best.
Last of my hand care remedies is Crabtree and Evelyn’s Hand Recovery.
This is a scrub that you use on dry hands and rinse off with warm water. It seriously works wonders. Anytime I use this my hands feel completely amazing and soft for the next four days (a little secret, I used this everyday while going through recruitment to make sure I had soft hands while meeting girls of the sororities-I think it worked because I am now an Alpha Phi!) Anyways, after each use of the scrub I apply the hand cream above (crabtree and evelyn’s). The duo is positively the best.
I highly recommend these three products to all of you if you are looking for great hand care. Let me know if you invest in them and what you think!
