Soap and Glory

Another Soap and Glory review for you!

We both received the absolutely amazing bumper box of goodies for Christmas so will slowly be making our way through all of the products.

This weeks review is of their well known hand cream ‘Hand Food’.

They claim it is a ‘super-silky gorgeously-scented non-greasy hydrating hand cream featuring fennel and lotus flower extracts’

When using it you should ‘relish in the delightful aromas of fresh bergamot, strawberries and mandarin, with floral and fruity midnotes, and musk, amber and warm vanilla’

Phew what a list!!

I haven’t ever personally used hand cream that much before, but actually, a few weeks before Christmas my hands were really dry from the weather.

I went to boots to find a miniature one to get me started and ended up buying this, it was love at first use!

It really does sink in like a dream, smell divine and most importantly works.

I was especially glad that this was in the big set as the miniature one didn’t last me very long at all!!

It’s become a firm favourite to use just before going to bed so it can work its magic whilst I sleep 🙂

I absolutely adore this hand cream. I go through loads of the stuff, working in the laboratory means I’m constantly having to wash my hands vigorously (we deal with human samples) and find the soap is so drying on my hands. 

This just makes your hands feel so soft, I’m big on hand creams and looking after my hands as I think they are something that can be so easily neglected and I’m hoping that if I keep smoothing them in hand cream hopefully they won’t age as quickly. ( I always try to think ahead, hands are the one thing I think can age a woman so hopefully keeping them nice will prevent wrinkly hands)

As always with soap and glory the smell of it is amazing, so fresh and nice. It’s also a nice thick luxurious cream which I like in a hand cream. I always stock up on this when it’s on 3 for 2! worth every penny in my opinion.

Love M

    Have read so many rave reviews on this. Can't wait to get my hands on it. Sounds great and looking at the notes, must smell divine.

    You really shouldn't hesitate! M and my mum always told me about Hand Food and using hand cream to stop your hands ageing (I always thought they were exaggerating!) but it really is AMAZING!I'm completely converted 🙂

    I'm not sure what I think about the Soap and Glory collection. I tried a body butter type thing a while ago and didn't really react well with sensitive skin. Do they do a sensitive range? I'd probably try the hand cream but looking forward to hearing more of your reviews!HELenpierrelecat

    I don't think they do a sensitive range, that's annoying you reacted to it. My two favourite products are arc de triumph (brow pencil) and scrub your nose in it (a minty fresh face mask) hand food is brilliant for dry hands and I'm currently trying there foot cream, we will keep you up dated on them x

    I have never used the Soap and Glory collection but the packaging is always so appealing to me! I might have to give this a try!

    Thanks girls! It's definitely a must have, especially when you compare it to the prices of other hand creams that have a similar reputation 🙂

    I've been wanting this product for ages – last time I went shopping I dragged my friend around the same store for an hour just to see if I could possible maybe find it! the supereyes gel eye cream is excellent and I use it everyday

      Ooh I think we'll have to take a look at that! Does it sink in easy? I've got one that feels amazing but peels off after a while :Sxxx
