I originally published this post last March but I think it’s extra relevant right now (my hands have been so dry!) and it keeps coming up in the Facebook group, plus I’ve tried a few new ones, so I wanted to update it.
I don’t know about you but my hands are dried out from all of that washing + hand sanitizer! Obviously this is a teensy tiny problem in the great scheme of things going on in the world right now, but today I wanted to share a few of my most favorite luxurious hand creams. If you treat yourself to one nice thing right now for me, hand cream would be it… it’s a small luxury that’s also very much needed right now.
My Favorite Hand Creams
Augustinus Bader The Hand Treatment is what I am using right now and I absolutely love it so much.
I am obviously a huge fan of all things Bader, so I was very happy they came out with this product. It is expensive, but you do not need much (I’m still on my first tube from the beginning of quar). It leaves skins so soft and young looking, and it hydrates all day long.
Beauty Pie’s Super Retinol Hand Cream has probably been my all time fav hand cream;
Simply because it makes such an immediate difference and the retinol actually helps permanently counteract the signs of aging. The price tag is fantastic, too. Dehydration is the big problem right now. But if you feel like your hands are looking a little old, give this a try! Also worth noting based on some questions in the comments; this is probably the least greasy of the bunch!
Aesop’s Hand Cream smells incredible
Looks incredible (the packaging is gorge) and leaves hands hydrated all day (or at least until you wash your hands again 30 minutes later, lolz)
Susanne Kaufmann Hand Cream is a little jar of amazingness.
It smells so good and is so hydrating and you only need the tiniest amount. I wrote an entire blog post about it three years ago and it remains one of my absolute favorites.
Byredo Tulipmania Hand Cream is so luxurious
And every time I pull it out of my bag I am met with “WHAT IS THAT IT SMELLS SO GOOD!?” because everything Byredo makes just smells beyond. It’s also deeply hydrating (and with everything else here, you only need a tiny bit!).
Lastly (and not pictured), you can’t go wrong with Weleda Skin Food.
It’s the most hydrating, smells so good, and is a lot less expensive than everything else I’ve shown here! (PS – you can read more about Skin Food and all of its MANY amazing uses in this post!!!)
