Soap & Glory Hand Food
Advantages: Very easily absorbed, leaves hands velvety soft
I have seen the Soap & Glory range on the shelves of Boots for quite a while but the Hand Food was the first thing I bought in their range. This came about because my hands were suffering with the winter as per usual but despite slathering on different handcreams, the dryness didn't get any better, so before work one day, I popped into Boots and bought this 50ml tube for £2.35 (this was the mini size but full size of 125mls is available at £4.85 from Boots).
The packaging for S&G products is fab - 50s, kitch and girly with quirky little slogans (this one's is 'mend a hand'). The tube is a bubblegum pink colour which I love, and has the rather confident question across the top: 'The Most Astonishing Hand Cream Ever? You Decide!'. Alrighty then I shall!
The lid flips up very easily which might sound obvious but believe me I have struggled with a fair few similarly designed items nearly breaking a nail with the effort! The product itself is white and smells sweet but not sickly. It is quite feminine though so I can't imagine a bloke using it.
I squeezed out a small amount at first to see how far it went and it turned out that a small amount is all I needed as a little goes a long way. I was seriously impressed with how well this was absorbed - very quickly and with zero trace of grease. It left my hands feeling super soft like velvet and the most impressive thing was that I applied it in the morning and didn't feel the need to continuously re-apply this all day which I usually do.
Amongst the ingredients are Macadamia oil, shea butter and marshmallow (hungry yet?) and I'm pleased to report no irritation at all to my very sensitive skin.
I really do believe it's the best handcream I have ever tried and for such a fantastic price too - I will definitely be checking out the rest of the range. Soaperb!!
