During the autumn/winter months a personal essential is hand cream. I already adore and use some of Chanel’s covetable line of skincare and when they announced the release of a hand cream I was instantly intrigued.
First, the packaging. Oui, not an imperative feature that one looks for when looking for a hand cream, but this little egg is precious. It fits nicely into your hand and is space conscious in your handbag. It’s easy to shove in an already stuffed bag with ease which I have to come to really appreciate. Second, the actual cream itself is simply gorgeous and works! Note that I do not often attach myself to a new handcream often as many don’t last very long or aren’t hydrating enough. I have been using my beloved Hand Food from Soap & Glory for ages but now it is time for us to part ways. My skin absolutely hates the colder months and I can honestly say that this new gem from Chanel is a new essential. It is lightly scented, and I do mean light, so no overbearing smells to go against your perfume. The cream is light in consistency and a little goes a long way. It absorbs very quickly and keeps my hands hydrated for hours with none of that greasy feeling that many hydrating hand creams can leave you with. Warning though that it does become highly addictive to apply. I highly recommend heading grabbling a little egg of your own to get your skin through the coming colder months.
