I'm a bit batty for these new hand & nail balms by Roger & Gallet, which is something I never thought I'd be saying... I mean, they're hand creams. Not the most exciting products in the world BUT these both smell and feel extremely luxurious on the skin!
And as much as I hate to admit to getting older (not that I can hide from it), I do find myself paying more attention to things like the condition of the skin on my hands. They can be a dead giveaway of your true age as you get older, regardless of how youthful, smooth and plumped-out your face looks.
I generally dislike the feel of hand cream and the stickiness that usually hangs around for ages after application, but these one from R&G soak into the skin in no time leaving no residue, and they smell AMAZING!
The Hand & Nail Balms are joining the already existing hand creams, but are richer than the creams and have a mattifying texture! They come in 30ml tubes and are retailing for only €6.50 here in Ireland. They are perfect for throwing in your handbag, which is where I keep one (I keep the other on my night stand)
The 'Bienfaits' and the 'Fleur de Figuier' Hand & Nail Balms both contain 4 active ingredients;
*GLYCERIN; Moisturises and mattifies the skin.
*SHEA BUTTER; Protects and nourishes.
*ALOE VERA; Hydrates & sooths the skin.
*APRICOT KERNEL OIL; Softens the hands, nails & cuticles.
BIENFAITS Hand & Nail Balm smells the most amazing, it's made of 5 berries which have powerful antioxidant properties which helps to slow down the signs of anti-aging.
FLEUR DE FIGUIER Hand & Nail Balm is 'enriched with fig extract with a relaxing scent' and is super nourishing.
These are free of possible nasties like parabens, colorants and silicones and are suitable for all skintypes, though the balms are more aimed towards drier skin types.
