With the weather soon to be cooling down (I hope, I am so over the hot weather now - give me snow!) my hands have been really getting effected. My hands get pretty dry all year round but now that I am back at work after six weeks off they are drier than ever with what I put them through and this hand cream has been saving my hands.
I have been a long time fan of pretty much everything from Roger & Gallet and one of my favourite products from the brand are the hand balms so I couldn't wait to try the Hand Cream Sublime which has the fragrance of Mandarin, Orange Blossom and Amber. This hand cream claims to nourish the hands and nails for up to eight hours after the initial application. It has a non-greasy formula and dries to a matte finish for soft and smooth hands. Like all of the products from the brand they all smell incredible, this is my second favourite scent, my top scent is the Fleur de Figuier from Roger and Gallet.
This has quickly become a handbag essential as it is so hydrating on the hands and smells delicious. I usually hate hand creams as they leave my hands feeling sticky and oily but this hand cream is wonderful. It leaves the hands feeling instantly hydrated and softened and I am a huge fan of the matte finish. My hands feel very uncomfortable when they start to get dry and this hand cream instantly releases this feeling and they always feel so much better within a couple of minutes.
Another thing that I like about this hand cream is that the scent lingers for a while after application, it isn't too strong but I play with my hair a lot and I can always smell it - I love this! I like that it has long lasting hydrating effects and I don't have to reapply it so many times a day as I know that for around eight hours my hands are going to be hydrated.
If you are looking for a new hand cream I would say check this one out as it isn't too expensive and it makes the hands smell amazing and feel super soft. I know I am going to get so much use out of this in the winter as my hands get even drier then. I also like that it is in plastic packaging rather than a metal tube as you don't have to worry about it spilling out product accidentally in your handbag.
The Roger and Gallet Hand Cream retails for £6 and is available at Escentual - HERE.
