My Top Five Hand Creams

Where I live hand creams are an essential, the moment you step into the bitter winds your hands will crack and dry out in an instance. I carry hand creams everywhere with me, some more than others, so here is my top five hand creams that I couldn't live without.

#5: Nivea Smooth Nourishing Hand Cream
If you want an inexpensive hand cream to moisturise you hands during the winter months, this is your hand cream. In my opinion this hand cream is classed as heavy duty, it replenishes your hands and you can't beat a bit of Nivea in your life. The price of this hand cream is £3.16 which is a good price to pay to prevent dry hands.

#4: Garnier Body 7days Honey Hand Milk
Unlike the Nivea hand cream this Garnier product has a light scent of honey. It is lightweight and leaves your hands fresh and moisturised. It has a non greasy formula that quickly gets to work and banishes your dry winter skin. For a reasonably big tube it is £2.99.

#3: Soap And Glory Hand Food
A little while ago this used to be my number one hand cream. The reason why I loved this hand cream so much is that it smells like marshmallows which is a bonus but the formula of the hand cream is not greasy. Also it works well to prevent dry/chapped hands. A travel size tube is £2.50 but for a full size tube it's £5.00.

#2: The Body Shop Hemp Hand Cream 
The non-greasy formula of this hand cream allows you to get on with your day to day routeen. The moment this hand cream touches your hand it alliminates your dry skin in a second. The price you pay for this hand cream (small tube £5.00/large tube £10.00) is amazing for how long it lasts.

#1: Crabtree & Eveyln Gardeners Hand Cream
Wow. What would I ever do without this hand cream. It sooths your skin with it's rich formula of Shea butter. It nourishes your hands with a rich earthy delightful scent which includes lavender, sage, rosemary and thyme. This hand cream has everything you would ever want in a hand cream. There is another bonus though, there is a whole line of hand creams from Crabtree & Evelyn. There are scents from Tarocco Orange, Rosewater, La Source and plenty more. A small tube of hand cream starts at £5.00, a medium 50g tube is £9.00, but for a large 100g tube it's £14.00.

So that was my top five hand creams, in my opinion all of the hand creams mentioned are great in there own way, some mostiurize, some are light weight and some are heavy duty. But then there are just some that do it all and more.
