as you know i had a little splurge in body shop the other day and wanted to share with you another little something which i picked up; this wild rose hand cream.
this product is actually specifically targeted at mature skin, helping to prevent aging and reduce brown spots, however you're never too young to start looking after your skin.
i'm not going to fib, i went into this purchase a little naively; i was immediately drawn in by the rose scent, created by rosehip oil. anything with the word rose in sounds delicate and pretty and makes me want it, the fact that it was only £2.50 (on offer, usually £5.00) for 30ml made it even more appealing but you know something, sometimes it pays to be a little naive as i've ended up with a product that i really love!
i'm not sure whether i'd describe the scent as rose, but it does remind me a lot of the smell of midget gems, which have always reminded me of perfume since being little, perhaps that's just me but i can remember asking my mum for the perfume tasting sweets, so that's something i really enjoy when i'm wearing this product, if only for the sake of nostalgia.
something else which i really rate this product on is the spf 15 factor, often people, myself included, forget about protecting their hands from the sun, even when they're covering the rest of their body in sun cream but this makes it effortless. everyone wants soft hands after all, and it really is very moisturising without that slimy feeling that some hand creams give you.
a final plus before i bore you all is that it sinks in straight away which makes it very practical to pop in your handbag when you're on the move.
i'm really pleased with this product, and have big plans for it, i fully intened to take it all around the world with me, that is to australia, where suncream couldn't be more important!
have you got any body shop hand creams? what's your go to moisturiser for your hands?
speak soon xoxo
