20 Divine-Smelling And Moisturising Luxury Hand Creams We Are Currently Slatheringby | August 07, 2019
We can’t speak for you, but we are obsessed with hand creams. There’s always one by our bedside, at our work desk, a few tubes scattered in various handbags—we have one within arm’s reach at all times. We love hoarding on these ’grammable tubes that keep our hands baby soft at all times. They also soften our cuticles and nails, along with doubling up as all-over body creams to tackle dry and scaly areas when on-the-go. Plus, it doesn’t entirely hurt that these smell divine and are an instant mood enhancer.
Here are a few luxury hand creams that we absolutely swear by. And our soft and supple hands are proof.
La Creme Main Texture Riche Hand Cream, Chanel
The one thing all Chanel beauty and skincare products have in common is the minimal packaging. Packaged in a palm-sized, egg-shaped container that is the perfect travel size, this hand cream is nourishing and hydrating. The renewing and brightening pallida protects the skin, and reduces dark spots, while the hydrating and softening May rose wax moisturises your skin. Shea butter and glycerin both help hydrate the skin, giving it a visibly nourished look in a dollop.
Miss Dior Nourishing Rose Hand Cream, Dior
Beautifully packaged in a pink tube, this cream by Dior will gently nourish your hands. Enriched with soothing centifolia rose water, the cream moisturises and penetrates your skin to give you delicately scented hands that are protected and nourished.

La Mer is renowned and revered for their skincare products and this rejuvenating hand cream is no exception. The brand brings its know-how to your hands and helps deliver a radiant appearance by targeting renewal and brightening. The soft treatment makes your hands look and feel supple, while also reducing discolouration.
Bal d'Afrique Hand Cream, Byredo
The pared-down monochrome Byredo tube is what Instagram flatlays and #shelfies are made of.

The uplifting and warm scent of the cream lingers on your hand for a feel-good factor, while also protecting its delicate skin.
