I don't smoke, rarely drink, have the odd flutter on the lottery or the horses. No addiction. I can take it or leave it. But, the one thing I can't live without.... is hand cream - what a vice. I go through tubes, tubs, jars and pots of it. Before I've finished one, I've bought the next. I must not run out. You get the picture - I neeeeeed it. My name is Stephanie, and I am a hand cream addict. So here are my top five...
I've been using hair serums for years, more recently, face serums but now... hand serum! And how lovely it is too. Soft like satin and smooth to the touch, Helping Hands by Barbara Daly (no relation) for Tesco is designed to moisturise, soothe and protect. Just one tiny drop reduces dryness to create healthy hands with fewer lines. It's the perfect size for a handbag, so slip one in your shopping basket.
|Herbal Aloe Hand Cream, £8.50|
Busy hands need a resisiliant hand cream. Hands First Invisible Gloves not only moisturise skin to keep it silky soft but it also builds a protective layer over your skin - making it ideal for applying before household chores or gardening to protect them from detergents and dirt. Rumour has it that using it pre-fake tan will protect you from staining your hands. I've not fake tanned in a while, but will give it a go and report back! This is fragrance free too, so suitable for people with sensitive skin.
VIE at Home Blissful Hands Softening Hand Cream, £7.50
Vie Blissful Hands Softening Hnd Cream has a delicious smelling fruity fragrance. The cream contains Rosehip Seed Oil, Chamomile, Allantoin, Glycerine and Cocoa Butter to keep hands super-soft. The packaging is super-girly, and would make a great gift for a hand cream lover!

All this talk is making my hands thirsty. I need my next fix...
