The winter saviours your hands have been waiting for
La Mer The Hand Treatment. It’s like a fancy anti-aging serum for your hands, except it doesn’t come with a portion-controlled dropper, so be careful not to let any go to waste. It’s deliciously silky going on and contains the company’s signature Miracle Broth that they claim tones, softens and firms.
Restorsea Repairing Hand Treatment. This is the real deal. Formulated with a potent cocktails of superheros including cocoa butter, vitamin C, and—wait for it—an enzyme from salmon roe. Your hands will be supple and gorgeously hydrated.
Amore Pacific Time Response Intensive Hand Renewal Creme. It’s a small tube and very expensive. However, the formula includes a trio of green-tea-derived Asian botanicals that stimulate collagen production and control melanin (a.k.a. the pigment that causes dark spots), so hands look firmer, smoother, and more youthful.
Jo Malone Vitamin E Hand Treatment. We love Jo Malone. We are almost sold by the packaging alone. The tube combined with the satiny feel, and crisp, green-citrus scent has us sold. It heals cracked, dry hands in an overnight application.
Kora Organics by Miranda Kerr Daily Hand Cream. The natural oils soothe cracked hands sans parabens and artificial fragrances, and the light citrusy scent is pleasant but not overpowering.
Jurlique Citrus Hand Cream. The pale-yellow formula smells remarkably zesty (like a cocktail of lemon, orange, and grapefruit) and gives your senses an instant lift
Tatcha Soothing Silk Hand Cream. The formula itself is a deep purply blue (similar to the tube it comes in), which comes from the indigo plant (an ingredient rich in anti-inflammatory benefits).
Philosophy Hands of Hope. Just one application of the thick balm leaves hands feeling instantly softer (thank you, hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid) and cuticles and nail beds looking more polished.
Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream Original. This is one of our absolute favourites and a bargain for the price. It’s spiked with a high dose of glycerin to deeply hydrate even the most severely chapped, flaky skin.
Soap & Glory Hand Food. Another bargain beauty. This perfect skin-coddling combination of shea butter, macadamia oil, and marshmallow root.
Rituals Ginkgo’s Secret Ginseng & Ginkgo Biloba Hand Balm. Spiked with shea butter, glycerin and ginseng extract, an antioxidant that has been found to have anti-aging benefits, this is a power house in a tube.
Aveeno Skin Relief Hand Cream. It drenches skin with moisture and calms sensitive, irritated skin with soothing colloidal oatmeal. (It’s also totally fragrance-free, another plus for sensitive types.)
