The Sanctuary Hand Cream
Advantages: A nice but usual smell
Last Christmas my sister bought me some Sanctuary toiletries including their SPF15 hand cream. I usually use Neutrogena, so I took this to work to use as my "desk cream". I actually really like the cream, I was suprised how good it was especially as this was the first time I had come across Sanctuary stuff.
It comes in a 100ml tub with a flip cap lip lid. The cream is thick for a hand cream, although no where near as thick as Neutogena. I would describe the colour of the hand cream as a very light peach colour with an usual slightly masculine smell of men's talc, and although unusual I find it quite pleasant as I prefer smells which are not too girly.
The cream includes anti-oxidant white tea, vitamin E and Shea butter and is easily smoothed across my hands and fingers and quickly socks in without leaving any greasy residue. I also find it is good for softening my cuticles so I can push them back from my nails and this cream leaves my hands feels soft and hydrated.
I can't really comment about the SPF15 as I use the cream more on my fingers and palms rather than the tops of my hands, plus I am very pale so I am not sure SPF15 would offer me any protection anyway. The SPF and UVA is there as anti-ageing and apparently according to the description on the back helps shield skin again the premature signs of aging.
This is a really pleasant cream with a scent which I like and I like to put it on sometimes whilst I am at my desk as I do find the scent quite relaxing. I am guessing this is a medium expensive cream, I don't know, but am about to look...
...It seems to come in at about £5 so is slightly more than I would normally pay, would I would buy this again as a treat for myself and a bit of Luxury.
