Hand & Foot Cream

I for one love a body-part specific, nourishment injecting, rich cream to slather on as a finishing touch before bed. It’s on those luxe little steps that elevates you from just slapping on some moisturiser to a pampering goddess and I tell you if I had a penny for every time I’ve caught Dad massaging in this hand cream while he thought I wasn’t looking I’d have very heavy pockets indeed – a pampering goddess in the making, who knew? The Body Shop Honeymania Hand Cream and L’Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream have been treating my hands and feet exclusively for the past few months and given their purse friendly credentials and permanent status in my stash it was about time they popped up in a ‘Budget Buy’…

I’m sure The Body Shop Honeymania Hand Cream needs no introduction, a desk side staple for many this sweet perfumed cream for your hands does the job perfectly well without being too greasy, sticky or slippery hand slicking. I keep one in my bathroom to encourage myself to remember to slather it on after handwashing and one in my bag for on the go. Oh yes and there’s one on my bed-side too. It’s fair to say I’m pretty pimped out with Honeymania Hand Cream. L’Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream is the lesser famous of the two but probably the one I get most in an excited flap about – yep that’s me, getting in a whizz over a foot cream. It’s chocker with kick-ass ingredients: glycerin, macadamia oil and fruit acid smoothers, the combination of which makes for some seriously silky heels, trust me. I get to work in the bath with a foot file, then pile this on, slip into some socks and lie back and let it get to work.

Bring on those summer sandals…
