Advantages: Leaves my hands (and skin) feeling lovely and soft
Disadvantages: A little overly potent
Lush has to be one of my favorite places to shop and I could spend hours in there smelling all the lovely products and tend to leave with a large paper bag filled with the stuff. Having shopped there for some time now I have developed some firm favorites that I keep going back to time and time again, one of which is the Tiny Hands Solid Hand Cream which I am reviewing today.
I have bought Tiny Hands a few times but most recently I received it as a gift in a Lush set at Christmas. As with all Lushs solid products it has no packaging, of course this is great for the enviroment but I would recommend purchasing a Lush tin to store it in, because at times it can get a tad messy.
The product is solid and in the shape of a tiny hand (hence its name), it is a hand cream which Lush promises will help dry and cracked skin. I love the design and think it looks really cute and kitsch.
To use you simply warm it by rub it between your hands and it will begin to melt into a lovely soothing "cream". On colder days it takes a little longer to get it going and on hotter days I have found it to be a little overly sticky, either way care must be taken as a little goes a long way with this product. I actually find the process of rubbing the cream in my hands really relaxing and therapeutic as I really love the feeling of it on my skin. I do suffer from sore hands and will always reach for my bar of Tiny Hands as i know it will instantly soothe and begin repairing them. Although this is primarily a hand cream I do usually end up rubbing it all over my body too and my skin always feels so soft afterwards. At first it feels a little greasy, it takes sometime to rub in, so I tend to only use it at night time when I am not in a rush. I think it would also work really well as a massage bar too.
Tiny hands has a very floral smell with a hint of Vanilla. Whilst I like the fragrance I do find the marigold fragrance a little over powering at times and prefer it a little more toned down. Once dried on the skin it can be smelled for quite sometime. In fact when I apply this before bed I can still smell it on the bed covers in the morning.
As I mentioned before a little goes a long way with this product, so I really feel I get my moneys worth. I would advise keeping it stored in a cool place as it seems to last longer this way.
As with all Lush products, Tiny Hands has not been tested on animals. It is also suitable for Vegans. The product contains fair trade Shea butter.
I really love Tiny Hands and it leaves my skin feeling and looking wonderful, I will certainly continue to buy it. However, I do feel the need to knock a star off as it is a little too potent.
Tiny Hands is available in most Lush stores and online (delivery charges apply) and costs £4.15 for 60g.
