Cute beauty products. They make it totally acceptable to indulge in a beauty haul or two, don’t they? Just seeing their whimsical designs makes you forget you’ve abandoned your ‘no beauty buy’ month. Again. Cough cough. This Hold My Hand Peach Hand Cream from The Crème Shop is a wonderful example of adorable packaging.
I mean, look at it! It’s unbelievably cute. It smells incredible too, just like Haribo peach sweets. Yummy.
My cuticles and hands are often dry and this is very pleasant to use. It takes a little longer to absorb into my skin than other hand creams I’ve tried but that’s not necessarily a bad thing, considering the delicious peach scent.
Ingredients include prunus persica (peach) fruit extract, which is known for its moisturising properties and protecting skin against harmful UV damage with vitamins C and E. The cucumis sativus (cucumber) fruit extract acts as an anti-inflammatory, making it ideal to use when my hands feel particularly parched. Cucumbers also contain vitamin K to help repair damaged skin.
Other key ingredients are pyrus malus (apple) fruit extract and shea butter for extra moisture and further protection against signs of skin irritation.
Although the packaging is delightful, I prefer to use hand creams with a thicker consistency. However, it’s been very fun to try. I’m keeping the container. Of course.
