|Soap and Glory Hand Food, £5 for 125ml from Boots|
I’ve heard this product raved about time and time again on blogs and on Youtube so I thought that it was about time that I chucked my opinion into the mix and I have to admit it’s not as positive as other reviews I’ve read.
Hand Food from Soap and Glory is a hand cream that is designed to soften, smooth and sooth hands that are dry, chapped or in bad condition. It smells almost like a perfume, which I thought I would love but im quite undecided about it! It’s fruity, floral and musky with other scents of bergamot, strawberries, mandarin, amber and vanilla included. I find that it leaves a film or residue on my skin that is irritating and it doesn’t feel particularly hydrating or moisturising until its fully sank in, then I feel the moisturising benefits. I have chapped skin on some of my finger tips and psoriasis on my wrist and I haven’t found Hand Food to help my skin on these areas but it is lovely on my more normal skin. I now have this on my desk at work to keep my hands soft throughout the day, then I use an intense hand cream at night like my favourite one from palmers cocoa butter.
Hand Food is available to buy in store and online from Boots for £5 for a 125ml tube which is great value for money. There’s also a handy travel sized available for your handbag or for when you’re travelling.
