It’s fairly safe to say that we’re obsessed with nails at the moment. After all Owen Wilson himself has drawled that “nails are so hot right now“: and that has probably had something to do with the rise of the Reverse French, the Chanel Catwalk creations and lace manis among others. Owen usually gets most trends spot on.
But… nails can only look as good as the handie pandies they’re sitting atop of. And no part of your body can show your age as quickly as hands (Madonna where are ya? You’ve the body of a teenager and the hands of an octogenarian). I’ve gone into a mad panic about hand cream because on a recent holiday I got too much sun and (may god forgive me for I never stop banging on about sun protection to all and sundry), got slightly er burnt. On my hands. And now I feel they’re like wizened old apples or something.
Hence a revitalization of my hand cream obsession. So if you’re a big hand cream junkie (and I know lots of you are), you will absolutely be delira with this new offering from Guerlain – I am. With an SPF of 15 it protects hands from sundamage, tackles age spots and can actually reverse brown marks. It leaves hands smooth and soft and because it penetrates instantly it won’t leave you feeling greasy. If there’s one thing I can’t stand it’s greasy hand cream… ugh. Well okay, there’s many things I can’t stand, but this doesn’t have any of them. Could be a good Mammy’s day present too methinks. (Check out the hand cream category to see what else we’ve rated)
Guerlain say it’s “a truely precious anti-ageing hand cream” – and at €49.19 it’d want to be, wha’?
