It’s been a while between posts, but rather than talk about my absence (I will save that for another time) I thought I’d get back into the swing of things. Today I wanted to share with you, my hand on heart favourite hand cream of all time – Keihl’s Ultimate Hand Salve. I admit, I’ve flirted with others but I always keep going back to my beloved Hand Salve.
As the months start to cool down, my hands tend to be at their driest – enter Keihl’s Hand Salve. Its has a lovely thick consistency that doesn’t feel greasy or leave any residue plus it’s super absorbent and protects and repairs while I go about doing my thing. I’m not the most patient person so I detest gloopy hand creams that take forever to absorb – with the Kheil’s it’s a non-issue. I don’t have to constantly reapply the hand cream either. Even after washing, my hands feel moisturised and hydrated hours after application.
Keihl’s claim that the cream contains a blend of ingredients that allow the skin to draw and absorb water from the air, which in turn forms a glove like barrier on the hands. I spend a lot of time indoors with artificial heating/cooling which I find extremely drying. In fact my skin feels the driest when I’m at work so I make sure I always have a tube tucked away in my draw. Speaking of work, this is the perfect cream if you work in a fragrance-free setting as the scent is a very light herbal scent that’s almost undetectable. I haven’t had anyone complaints about it so I think it’s pretty neutral and inoffensive.
If you’re in need of an intensive hydrating and moisturising hand cream I recommend giving this one a go. At $36 for the 150ml tube (or $24 for 75m) it ain’t exactly cheap but it’s so worth it if you happen to have super dry reptilian hands. I’ll keep repurchasing it just because it’s so damn good.
