Are you one of those people that ends up with really dry hands and no matter how much you moisturise, they never seem to soften? Yeah mine too! So I tried Soap & Glory’s Hand Food and here’s what I thought…
That was until Christmas last year. I think it was a gift from my Mum but may have been my sisters (I’m not sure), I was given a gift set of the Soap & Glory hand creams. As you may or may not know, I am a big fan of Soap & Glory body butters and moisturisers so I was fairly certain that I would also like these. I am not sure whether it is due to having sensitive skin or having worked in the hospitality sector for a large number of years but despite having been on the hunt for a decent hand cream to stop my poor hands from drying out, I had never been successful. Even when using medicated creams like E45 and that stuff can get expensive!
What did I think?
Not only do these make my hands smell lovely but they also make them feel like they are well nourished and actually moisturised unlike a lot of other moisturisers that just simply sit on the top of my hands and not really doing a lot. There are several different moisturisers you can get, as you can see here, I have all three in the range. The names of them are quite amusing and I love how Soap & Glory always have a retro look about them. These would also be an ideal purchase for someone that gets dry hands now that we are heading in to Autumn/Winter as this is another issue I have myself which I can assure you it works for!
My personal favourite has to be the Smoothie Star as I think this has the most gorgeous smell! Although I wouldn’t say it smells like smoothie as to me it smells like a vanilla cakey kind of smell.
I wasn’t much of a fan of the Sugar Crush one at first but overtime it has certainly grown on me. It has a very prominent citrusy, sour kind of smell and I’m much more of a sweet, floral smell kinda gal. As I said, it has grown on me though and I now actually quite like it.
However, if you are not keen on scented moisturisers then you could always choose the original Soap & Glory hand cream. Despite the packaging saying Rose, I feel that this has a very soft, neutral smell.
Cost & repurchasing
So you might be thinking it all sounds wonderful but what about the price? With every Soap & Glory product I have ever owned, I feel that they are great value for money as they will literally last you for months! As this specific gift set was a Christmas present I don’t know the exact price of it but as these are the mini hand creams, you can purchase the minis separately for £2.50 or the larger tubes for £5.50. For something that actually softens my hands prevents dry skin this is a very reasonable price.
Would I buy again? Yes!
Have you tried the Soap & Glory hand creams or anything else in the range?
