REVIEW | LUSH HELPING HANDS HAND LOTION


I am a huge fan of LUSH, especially for their massage oils, but never reviewed one of them before - simply because I have always forgotten to at least take a picture of them and I have always immediately used them.
I have always used only massage oils from this brand, but while doing some shopping at their store, the sales assistant noticed my hands were chapped - during winter my hands suffer a lot and all the other creams I have used before didn't do anything, or sometimes they make the problem worse.
So as a suggestion, he told me to try this. I was skeptic so I bought the smaller size.
Without a further ado, let's see if it's worth it or not!


PRODUCT DESCRIPTION


Our miracle-working, calming chamomile and cocoa butter cream has been saving hands worldwide for years. It’s perfect for people who work with their hands and suffer from dry, chapped skin as a result. Soothing honey, moisturizing oils and nourishing butters help to protect and care for hardworking hands and make them soft and flexible once again. You might be a person who thinks that hand cream is merely one more non-essential thing to spend your money on. Give your hands a little help; smooth some on and feel the difference it makes.


How to use: Take a small dollop of hand cream and massage into your dry hands and arms. With LUSH products a little goes a long way, so start with a little and use more if desired.


So I bought the smaller size which contains 100 g for €12,50.
The packaging is not so travel-friendly for me, as I prefer tube ones which are more hygienic.

MY EXPERIENCE


This hand cream has REALLY saved my chapped and dry, often bleeding hands.
As I work at a real estate agency, and most of the times I usually wash my hands (which also fastens the chapping of my hands during winter) after holding a lot of keys and opening a lot of doors.
The scent is quite weird - you can smell a lot the scent of dried chamomile - but it's not bothering at all as it fades away as soon as the cream is absorbed by the skin.
It's not greasy - but if you put a lot of it, you need to wait for a couple of minutes until it is completely absorbed by the skin and dry.
Aside from soothing my hands, I also noticed that it helped my fingernails - which are cracking a lot lately - and they look healthier than before.
I have been using a lot this hand lotion, and the tub still seems that it contains a lot of the product - you don't really need to put a lot.


RATING


Though this hand cream is a little bit pricey, I recommend it!
