Beauty Blog Advent Calendar 2012: 05/12/12

Last year, Sparklecrack Central came up with the idea of a Beauty Blog Advent Calendar where we featured little bits of beauty blogging things we love. This year, she gave us a bit more notice and we are joined by The Unknown Beauty Blog!

Beauty Blog Advent Calendar - Day 5

I know I've raved about these two products before, but today's BBAC post is about my Winter hand savers! My hands get much drier in the winter than at any other time of the year. Going in and out from the cold to the warm dries them out something awful!

Lush Lemony Flutter (£6.25 for 50g) is something I haven't been without for years! I use this to keep my cuticles to stop them getting too ragged and dry. I also use it on my elbows if they've got a bit on the dry side.

The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector (£10 for 100ml) is possible the best hand cream I have ever come across! Sometimes you can be surprised with a half price offer, that's when I stock up. Last time I visited The Body Shop, I got two 100ml tubes for £10. It's very rich and I've found that it's best for me to use this last thing at night, before I go to bed. It can take a long time to soak in but it keeps my hands from drying out. The scent is quite earthy and quite suitable for blokes. 


  1. I tend to use Burt's Bees Cuticle Cream; but I hadn't tried using that on my elbows. (One gets FAR more dried out than the other - probably because I lean on it when I'm sitting in my chair.)

    I'll have to try the hand protector, when I finish this latest bottle of body cream!

    1. My left elbow gets much drier, I definitely lean on it more.

  2. I haven't tried either one of these. I need massive moisture for my hands too. Will check both of these out!

    1. It's definitely worth checking out the Hemp Hand Protector, it's made a massive difference to my hands.
