Friday Favourites - Hand Lotion Feature

Winter is fast approaching and we all know what that means…dry skin! And let me tell you, nothing is worse than dry hands. Here at The Amazing Blog we make sure to keep our hands moisturised every day because hands are one of the first areas of the body to show signs of ageing. Thanks to hand lotions from Heathcote & Ivory, The Somerset Toiletry Company, Burt’s Bees,  Oskia and Boozi Body Care, we can be sure our hands will stay smooth this winter.

Originally inspired by Heathcote & IvoryMorris & Co. created a collection of hand care treatment that works wonders on your hands. Enriched with Vitamin E, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Lemon, Aloe Extracts, Jojoba Oil and Macadamia Oil, the Shea Butter Hand Cream is easily absorbed and gives your hands a velvety feel. The Refining Hand Scrub contains Glycerin, Vitamin A, Vitamin E and Luffa Fruit Power that exfoliates and softens hands. Made with Glycerin, Sunflower Seed Oil, Almond Oil, Aloe Extract, Panthenol and Vitamine E, the Cuticle and Nail Cream works to protect hands and nails. Besides the ingredients, the intricate design of these products will catch your eye and the scent is absolutely wonderful. Even when I'm not using the lotion, I'm always smelling it! You can purchase the gift set here for £15.00.

Utilising the finest ingredients and striving to deliver beautifully packaged products at an affordable price for everyone is the motto of The Somerset Toiletry Company. Its Naturally European Sage Hand Cream does just that. It is paraben and SLS free, making it perfect for sensitive skin. It also moisturises hands, nails and cuticles with its many ingredients, including shea butter and avocado oil while soothing and healing the skin. It's beautiful packaging and fresh fragrances will immediately draw you to the product. Take a visit here and make sure to choose the sage fragrance!

I've always loved the company Burt’s Bees’ so I was excited to try the Beeswax & Banana Hand Crème, which is super rich and made with all-natural products, such as aloe vera and vitamin E. These ingredients help to moisturise dry skin and the beeswax helps to seal and shield the hands from harsh elements in the environment. Although the lotion can seem a bit heavy and greasy at first, it soon soaks into your hands and lasts all day. You can even use this on your elbows, knees and feet! Plus, who doesn’t like the smell of banana? Browse around the website, and make sure to pick up the Beeswax & Banana Hand Crème. 

Oskia Renaissance Hand Cream made the 2014 Beauty Shortlist for Best Hand Cream, which isn't a surprise. It is deliciously perfumed with the scents of chamomile and rose. A blend of Macademia Seed, Rose Canina Oils, Swiss Garden Cress, Butterbur and Shea Butter improves hydration and elasticity of the skin and evens skin tone while also reducing inflammation. Organic AHAs improve the suppleness of the skin while also removing dry and dead skin cells. Take a look at the website or purchase the Renaissance Hand Cream for £21.00.

And for those of you not ready to accept the fact that the cold weather is here to stay, Boozi Body Care has the answer. With its set of hand lotions, Boozi Body Care has combined the fruit blends of cocktails with moisturising ingredients, allowing customers to enjoy something fresh and fun. You can now sit in front of the fire with the smell of your favourite cocktail surrounding you and pretend you're back on the beach.
