I’ve seen Soap & Glory products around for several years now, first in Boots at Bangkok and then in Australia. The package is oh-so-cute, with amusing names like Sexy Motherpucker *giggle*. For some reason, the scent of the products never did appeal to me, and that’s why I didn’t bother to pick any items up till about a month ago.
This hand cream came highly recommended by LeGeeque. She uses this religiously and asked me to try hers. I didn’t expect to like the hand cream. I’m not a fan of very sweet scents, and I certainly do not like products that states ‘marshmallow’ as a scent. They often smell cloyingly sweet, which gives me a headache.
Hand Food is a silky soft non-greasy hand cream with shea butter, macadamia oil and marshmallow. Mend a hand? Apply Hand Food Hand Cream as often as you want to soften, smooth and soothe dry, chapped or otherwise hampered hands. Soft, smooth and hydrated hands. The most astonishing hand cream ever? You decide!
So how is it that I like this hand cream so much that after using LeGeeque’s stash a few times, I just had to get myself one?
It smells pretty darn awesome, that’s why. It doesn’t have that cloying sweet scent, but delicious enough to still go mmmmm when you give your hands a whiff.
Best of all, it doesn’t leave any greasiness on your skin after application. I’m very particular about this when choosing hand creams; a hand cream must be absorbed quick enough that I don’t have to wait more than a minute to use the keyboard, phone, etc.
It doesn’t stay on the skin long enough to keep it hydrated all day though, so multiple applications are needed. But hey, I’m not complaining because it smells oh so good. This tube is now sitting proudly next to my digital radio on my bedside table, ready to be used before bed. Love it!
Soap & Glory Hand Food retails at AU$11.95 for 125ml and is available at Kit Cosmetics. Cheap as!
What I like about it: Absorbs very quickly, leaves no icky, oily residue after application, smells yummy. Affordable too.
What I do not like about it: Nothing
