Don’t let your hands fall victim to the harsh winter climate and the non-stop hand sanitising we’re all doing these days. Give your hands the love they deserve with these luxurious hand creams.
1. CHANEL LE LIFT LA CRÈME MAIN, 50ml, R905
The most Instagram-worthy hand cream you will ever meet, Chanel’s La Crème Main is a firm handbag favourite. With its silky cream texture that still packs a punch of hydration, this hand cream can bring any sanitiser-destroyed hands back to life with liquorice extract and botanical alfalfa concentrate that smooths and evens out skin tone.
2. LE LABO ROSE 31 HAND AND BODY LOTION, 237ml, R1,140
You are likely to find this as the brand of choice when it comes to luxury hotels’ amenities, and we won’t blame you if you swipe it into your hand luggage upon checkout. Le Labo’s Rose 31’s subtle rose-scented hand cream is sensorial as well as nourishing with white tea extract, vitamin E, and shea butter.
3. JO MALONE POMEGRANATE NOIR BODY AND HAND LOTION, 250ml, R925
If you’re not a fan of floral or sweet-scented hand creams, turn your gaze to Jo Malone and add this hand cream to your must-have list. Its spicy fruit scent profile with pomegranate, pink pepper, and spicy woods is great on its own, or try layering it with a few spritz of a zesty, fresh fragrance on the wrists for an unusual finish.
4. BYREDO SUEDE HAND AND NAIL CREAM, 100ml, R810
Whether you go for the 450ml, 100ml, 30ml size, or the whole bunch, it’s clear that you need a Byredo hand cream in just about every corner of your life. If you wear Byredo cologne, choose a hand cream in the same scent as your favourite eau de parfum. We quite enjoy the fresh, floral scent of Suede with bergamot, lily of the valley, amber, and soft musk. Plus the minimalistic, elegant packaging is easy on the eye.
5. ZENOLOGY BLACK TEA HYDRATING HAND AND BODY BALM, 500ml, R790
If you’re a fan of the Zenology Ambiance room sprays, best you get your hands on the hand cream versions too. We love the immersive scents that Zenology offers and if you do too, slather on this hand cream and be transported by the scent of black tea while your hands are nourished by aloe vera and vitamin E.
