Happy January! I hope 2018 has started off good for you all...
I am frequently asked about handcreams and which ones I would recommend.
I always let my clients know that using CND Solar Oil around the nails and bringing the excess onto the hands is the best way to keep skin & nails hydrated daily.
Handcream on the nails should be avoided while wearing a Gelish/Shellac polish as products in the hand creams may cause the product to lift.
If you want to use a hand cream ensure that you only use on the palms and tops of the hands avoiding the nail area.
If you are having regular manicures and using regular polishe it is perfectly ok to rub over the entire hands and nails.
So here are my top 3 handcreams:
CND SCENTSATIONS Lotion Mango & Coconut €20
The scent, texture and over all luxury of this product means it is my personal number 1! The beauty of this product is that it can be used all over the body and will leave you and your skin feeling a million dollars. CND Scentsation is available in many different scents. Mango & Coconut is my favourite.
2. Clarins Hand Cream €19.50
Clarins Hand cream shields hands from the elements minimizing signs of aging, strengthening nails and conditioning cuticles. Aloe vera softens, moisturises and encourages healing: shea butter soothes and soothes: and coconut oil helps tone and protect.
3. Loccitane Handcream Shea Butter Hand Cream €25
The rich texture leaves hands soft and smooth with no oily traces which I love. This makes it an ideal hand cream for people on the go. Enriched with 20% organic Shea Butter and blended with honey, almond extracts and coconut oil. This handcream is a must have!
So there are my top three picks. If you have any hand creams you would recommend make sure you comment below and let us know. I love to try new products.
