The perfect hand care duo

Autumn is approaching and it’s time to start thinking about taking extra good care of your skin. My hands easily get very dry (especially during autumn and winter) but I have found the perfect couple to keep my hands nice and smooth.

Miracle balm

I first bought this hand creme around Christmas last year, and I think this one that I’m using right now is my third. It is very thick and nourishing and the perfect hand creme to use before you go to sleep. I think it is a bit too thick to use during the day since it takes a while for it to sink into the skin. On the back of the product it says “for extra dry hands and can be used as a night mask”, and last night I actually used it as a night mask. I drenched my hands in it right before I went to sleep and when I woke up my hands were oh so soft.

Miracle Scrub

This scrub is the best, it makes your hands so smooth. If you haven’t tried a hand scrub before make sure to get one (this one). I like to use it once or twice per week, but I’m thinking that maybe I will use it more often when it gets colder outside.

The scrub and balm are both really good products, but when you use them together they are amazing! My hands love them so much!

Essie spa manicure

When I was in London in January I found a hand scrub and a hand lotion from Essie spa. I haven’t seen them in Sweden before so I had to buy them.

Essie spa – starter scrub / many many mani

I’ve now used them for some time so I though I’d let you know what I think of them.

This is my first hand scrub (I don’t know why I haven’t bought one earlier) so I don’t have anything to compare it to. I really like this scrub from Essie, it gently exfoliates the skin and leaves your hands soft and smooth. It has a lovely but subtle fresh smell. I will definitely buy a new one when this one is empty (even if I have to go abroad to do so).

The hand lotion has the same lovely but subtle smell as the scrub. I think that this lotion is perfect for those of you who are sensitive to fragrance. It is moisturizing and makes your hands feel silky smooth. This hand lotion absorbs quickly to the skin, so no greasy hands! I.e. perfect to use during the day and at work.

I bought these for £6.99 each and they both contain 75ml.
