Our hands are often one of the first places on our bodies where we start to see the ageing skin. Think about how much you do with your hands all day long... they touch lots of different surfaces and textures, they go in and out of water, they are exposed to varying temperatures... there's no denying, they work really hard!
It's important to keep them regularly moisturised to help minimise the impact of all that hard work. This gently soothing hand cream offers lovely skin-softening properties. It is easily absorbed and has sweet citrus and aromatic notes with warm, luscious undertones.
Keep a pump bottle close by for regular application.
