Looking after my hands with a 60 second fix from Crabtree & Evelyn

crabtree_evelyn_handMy hands suffer. Not only they perform all mundane tasks but they are also battered by my aerial antics. Add an Italian heritage (someone who talks with their hands) and the poor thing pretty much work around the clock.

It is no secret I look after my nails, but what about the hands themselves? I’ve always moisturised, but now that I discovered the Crabtree & Evelyn 60 Second Fix for hands, I am hooked.

crabtree_evelyn_hand - 2I’ve been using the La Source, which has a fresh, breezy aquatic scent. The pretty package comes with the LA Source Hand Recovery Scrub, a fantastically gritty and moisturising scrub. It contains sea salt, algae, shea butter and lavender oil.

It exfoliates the bejeesus out of the hands, and it is also amazing on knees and elbows. It removes dead, rough skin leaving hands fantastically soft. Apply on dry hands, give a rub and wash in lukewarm water. A bliss.

What stroke me the most about this hand cream is that it lasts. Even after washing the hands. You don’t need to keep reapplying. It just does the job.

There are different size packs and different fragrances. The large 60 Second Fix for Hands comes with each of the products in 100g versions, for £25 and the mini, with 25g versions, only £8, is fab for travelling  and makes a perfect stocking filler.

They have the Gardener’s version too, which is just a great gift for those with green fingers.

And if you fancy checking some nail art, take a look at my nails archive – there one for every taste, I promise!
