Between laptop sessions and the seemingly endless washing up, my hands have been suffering this winter. To try to combat that horrid tight, dry and weather-roughened feeling, I have stationed tubes of hand cream all over my apartment, from the basin in the bathroom to the kitchen sink, via my study desk and the hall table.
My current favourite is a new release from Oskia: the Renaissance Hand Cream. It hits all three necessary points for an effective hand cream: it smells utterly delicious, of garden roses in the summer, it is intensely nourishing, giving baby smooth skin in seconds, and isn’t all greasy.
Its efficacy comes from being packed full of emollients: a blend of Macademia Seed and Rosa Canina Oils, both of which are rich in omegas, to improve hydration and elasticity, moisturising Shea butter. There are also gentle organic AHAs, derived from passionflower, lemon, grape and pineapple to suppleness and hydration.
