Best Beauty Buys:: Garnier Intensive 7 Days Nourishing Hand Cream
We are gathered here today to talk about my obsession with hand cream.
And the lack thereof.
You see, I have this habit, that's kind of OCD in that if I don't put any hand cream on before I go to bed: I. Can. Not. Sleep.
Same with lip balm.
And I'd run out of proper hand cream, so was using any random moisturiser around the house. And it wasn't cutting the mustard.
Then this week I had the rare treat of a mani - and I was talking with the beautician, as one is prone to do, and we got to talking about hand creams. She told me that I should buy the Garnier hand cream as it is cheap as chips and super good.
Me, I am a bit of a beauty cynic. Unless I have tried something first-hand, I don't believe it.
And as if Garnier hand cream was going to have me all in a froth.
So the next morning I happened to be in the supermarket and I splashed out on the Garnier Intensive 7 Days Nourishing Hand Cream (with L-Bifidus - btw). A huge outlay of $4.75. Cough. Peanuts.
Still cynical I slathered it on as soon as I got to my desk at work. It smelt pretty darn good. Thick and yet not greasy consistency (already winning points), and now I am up to day 5 of using it - and giving it two thumbs up, plus two big toes up. It is honestly, super fantastic. It's quickly absorbed so no sticky after-application feeling either.
Already my hands are noticeably much softer, they feel fantastic. They're not dry. I am hooked.
And at $4.75 per 100ml tube, I can afford to have one at my desk, one by my bed, and one in my hand bag. It's a cinch!
