One slight positive thing to come out of the pandemic is that we are now all much more conscious of our hygiene. However, with all that handwashing and constant application of sanitizer, comes dry hands and tight fingertips. A small price to pay, we know, but it’s highlighted just how important investing in our handcare is.
To ward off the dry hand blues, we’ve put together a list of the best hand creams on the market. From cult classics to indie brands, you’re sure to find your new squeeze.
Le Labo is known for their cult fragrances, so it’s only natural that their hand creams would be just as beautifully scented. Promising to keep your hands smelling great all day, they’re the perfect way to introduce some luxury into your every day.
Proving hand creams can look achingly cool, Byredo tops the chart. Choose from a range of the brand’s signature fragrances, each has a distinctive, but not too overpowering scent.
Just as the name implies, this Aesop hand cream is super fragrant thanks to active botanicals and natural ingredients (it smells like a mix of lavender, citrus, and wood). We love that the packaging is super travel-friendly – and chic too.
