Working in an office environment often has a very drying effect on the skin. As a result, we here at The Amazing Blog always have a huge array of hand creams on the go. So many, in fact, that we consider ourselves experts on the subject. So when the lovely people at Crabtree & Evelyn sent us a tube of their Lavender Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy, we knew what a great product we had on our hands! An intensely nourishing and rich treatment scented with soothing lavender oil, we’re really coveting this conditioning cream.
Containing ingredients such as shea butter and macadamia nut oil, the hand therapy feels really calming on the skin, and sinks in really quickly, leaving no trace of a sticky residue, despite its rich consistency. The addition of myrrh helps to condition nails and cuticles, which is essential for nail polish addicts like us. It's the perfect precursor to any manicure, and makes a great pairing with the Crabtree & Evelyn Nail Lacquers, which you can read about here. A little goes a long way with this product; only a small amount massaged into my slightly chapped hands left them feeling blissfully soothed, soft and moisturised. Fragranced with English Lavender, the cream offers a subtle, soothing aroma at the perfect potency, helping to calm both our skin and our senses. The intensely nourishing product keeps our hands happy and hydrated all day long, and has made itself a staple on our cream laden desks.
A 100ml tube of the Lavender Hand Therapy is available to buy here for £15, along with the whole beautiful Crabtree & Evelyn range. They have a great variety of fragrances to choose from, but we have to say, we’re in love with lavender.
