Lush : Helping Hands.

Friday, 15 October 2010

Hi girls. 

So up for review today I have Lush Helping Hands hand cream. Now I dont know about you guys but I am a sucker for buying anything that looks cute. Personally i felt this little black pump bottle had to be purchased. This bottle holds 45g of product (£3.95). You can however purchase a larger tub of the handcream which holds 100g of product(£4.70), as I was testing out this hand cream i felt i should start with the smaller bottle then if i like it, repurchase the larger tub. 


On the label it states that it is a 'Healing, Soothing handcream' and works wonders for dry, sore or rough hands.As the we are hitting the colder months and we turn on our air conditioning our skin is going to suffer, so this is the time where we need to make sure we moisturise! The ingredients in this product are ; Softening Linseed oil, Almond oil, shea butter and coca butter.  At first i was not a big fan of the scent of this hand cream (I think i was just so used to my Soap & Glory one!) But over time I have grown to like it. You can definately smell the shea and coca butter in it.

The consistancy of Helping Hands is great. It isnt too thick and isnt too runny. However it is definately the case of less is more with this cream. I made the mistake of completely covering my hands at first with this product.. Not good, it makes your hands really greasy and takes an absolute age to sink into your skin. 
The way i apply this is to do one small pump on the back of one hand and then rub into back of the opposite hand. Once i have done this, i take a teenie tiny amount and add that to my palms, then i can use this to moisturise my fingers. It is different for everyone though, you just need to figure out what suits you best. 

Personally I think i would re purchase this handcream. It looks cute, smells great (once you get used to it!) and isnt too bad a price. I would reccommend! :)
Much Love
