Do I ever leave the house without my hand cream? No! It’s just one of those vital items that I can’t seem to live without, and before trying out this lovely hand cream from Balance Me I was using ‘The Body Shop Hemp hand cream‘ which I swear by. This hand cream, on the other hand, is no different to the hemp hand cream, and actually, has a much more pleasant smell. Every day I find myself rapidly cleaning the dishes at home before loading them all into the dishwasher to get a deep clean, but I’m always left with dry hands on top of the job I do at the minute.
Hand Cream: Balance Me c/o
All this cleaning really takes the moisture out of my skin and leaves my hands feeling really tight and dry. The environment is also another cause of this, or if you suffer from severe dry skin or eczema (which I have on my wrist), making these hand creams a great option for instantly hydrating them and really softening the skin. The Balance Me hand cream really is beautiful and slightly pricier than my normal hand cream mentioned above, but the scent really is wonderful and utterly uplifting! It just leaves me feeling much happier and it’s a joy to put on every day. Packed full of natural ingredients, yarrow oils, fatty-acid and vitamin-rich shea butter your skin will just soak up the moisture as soon as it gets into contact with this dream cream.
During the winter I always find a small patch on my wrists always gets really dry and flaky, so a deep moisturising hand cream is a must for me to keep them looking good and soft, and I’ve definitely noticed a huge improvement in my cuticles, nails and skin after using this. It’s really helped to keep my hands protected from the elements and very hydrated during times of need, not to mention it’s also improved the skin around my nails/cuticles. The overall formula is very rich in texture but instantly dries into the hands once applied, whereas The Body Shop hand cream does take slightly longer to dry in, which I do find a pain, but it’s still something I would continue to use alongside this and other hand creams.
