I can't believe I've never heard about Clarins' Hand and Nail Treatment Cream before. This intensely moisturising, shea butter based cream with extracts of sesame oil and mulberry is a consistent Clarins best seller - and having tried it for the first time last night, I can totally see why.
You only need the tiniest dab, with the cream's silky texture making it easy to smooth across the hands. For something with such a light texture, it imparts an incredible amount of moisture into the skin, sinking in quickly and leaving the hands feeling soft and velvety with absolutely no residue whatsoever. The softness lasts even after washing the hands.
Impressive stuff - the complete lack of residue makes this a perfect desk companion which won't interfere with constant typing. My tube will be given pride of place next to my monitor!
Find it at Clarins counters and concessions, or online, where a 100ml tube costs £19. There's also a Jubilee special edition (Clarins are royal warrant holders), which gets you a massive 200ml for just £26.
