Hi guys, sorry about the lack of posting in the past few days, for those of you who follow my facebook page (click here to follow) then you’ll probably know that I have been in the process of moving house! Very exciting times, although there was a horrendous amount of packing, boxing, bagging, lifting, moving, unpacking, and of course, a crazy amount of cleaning to be done! All the scrubbing, water and chemicals that are used in cleaning can really dry out your hands, and I am a firm believer in having a good hand cream on stand-by to help them feel normal again. My poor hands have been taking a quite a beating, and there is one product that I just had to share with you all, as it has kept my poor hands feeling soft and nourished throughout this moving ordeal!
Its a new hand cream called “Intensive 7 Days SOS Repair” by cosmetics Giant Garnier. I bought it in Boots at an introductory offer-price of under €3, but the regular retail price is not much more, at around €4. I find it to be the best hand cream I have ever used, considering its reasonable price, and how nourishing it was to my worn-out hands. It comes in a decent sized 100ml bottle, perfect for fitting in your handbag among other essentials. The formula is quite think, and as you apply it to your hands it feels slightly oily as it warms on your skin, which feels quite nice actually! The product dries in very quickly and does not leave residue on your skin, however your hands are left feeling as if they have a protective balm on them for quite a while afterwards. Fortunately I do not suffer from chapped, cracked, or particularly dry hands, so I can’t comment on whether or not this hand cream would clear that up, but I have check out out some other reviews of this product that claim that its intensive moisturising means it does alleviate such ailments. Success!!
There are 3 different types of hand creams in this range, Mango Oil, Shea Butter, and Aloe Vera. (I have ben using the Shea Butter one) I would highly recommend this product, for both its quality and value for money, I am now on my second tube! So for €4, will you be trying this so-called “wonder-product” out?
