The downside of being a full-time blogger is that I spend a lot of time abusing my hands. Typing, swiping and generally swatching, leaves my hands feeling dry and in need of serious attention. Applying a hand cream regularly is the one thing that keeps them looking and feeling half decent, so I’m never without a stash by by side. I accumulated a cute tube of Roger & Gallet hand cream a while ago and started popping it into my bag on a regular basis; the lightweight and non-greasy texture makes it perfect for applying on the go – especially as it dries quick enough to return to typing in a matter of seconds.
Roger & Gallet as a brand is steeped in history, being established way back in 1862 to bring everybody a little touch of luxury. The perfumier is well known for bringing beautiful scents and unique combinations to the masses. Enriched with shea butter and apricot kernel oil, all three varients of hand cream are absorbed quickly to provide lasting hydration, as well as super smooth and soft skin. These don’t feel at all greasy or heavy, making them perfect for quick relief or when you don’t have time to deal with sticky hands. The scents are divine, providing a hint of floral and citrus without being overpowering – available in Rose, Orange or Osmanthus, they’re definitely a little treat for overworked hands.
Roger & Gallet hand creams are available in three scents and can be picked up online priced £8.00 each, or within John Lewis stores nationwide.
