If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, especially in Canada and United States, you are most likely holding a cup of hot drink and sitting as close as you can to a heater trying to stay warm. It has been literally freezing cold for the past few days, and I am pretty sure that more than any other beauty products, skincare remedies to cold weather-related issues are the hot topic right now. I already reviewed a fantastic hand cream not a long time ago and today I have another excellent option for you. It is made by the lovely brand Amala, it smells like Jasmine and protects/heals your frozen fingers effectively.
The Amala Hydrating Hand Cream* has a light texture, so as I apply it, it feels like a thin hydrating coat on my hands. It absorbs fast and it does not leave any greasy residue on the skin. The formula is absolutely stunning, as it contains Avocado and Macadamia Nut, which help the skin to retain moisture and protect it from the elements. Another key ingredient is Jasmine, which also gives it a distinctive scent. If you like the scent of Jasmine, you will absolutely love this cream. In fact, I like to keep the travel size version in my purse, (1.7 oz. is very purse-friendly). However, even though the scent is not overpowering, if you are particularly sensitive to scents I recommend you first order a sample at Spirit Beauty Lounge**(see details below).
I highly recommend trying this hand cream if you like non-greasy, light textured lotions with flowery, delicate scents. It does the job perfectly without leaving your hands slippery and uncomfortable. Whether you have dry hands, chapped hands, or if you simply want to protect them and condition your skin, this hand cream is very effective at moisturizing and healing them. It has worked wonderfully for mine.
