Hand creams, past and present


Jurlique Citrus Hand Cream (currently using)

I keep my tube of this in the office.  Love the smell and texture. It is very moisturising yet it absorbs very quickly so that you don't end up with greasy hands.  However I hate the packaging.  It is in a aluminium tube and whilst that allows you to get every little last bit out (and you'd want to for the price), it leaks when you get halfway through the tube as the aluminium gives way from wear and tear.  Jurlique - can you please review the packaging?

Jurlique Jasmine Hand Cream (currently using)
Same as above.  Except this one doesn't smell as nice - the jasmine smell is a bit overwhelming for me. I received this as gift in the small size, which would be great for the handbag.  Except for the leaking tube factor.

Mozi Quince & Rose Hand Cream (currently using)

I received this as a gift as well and haven't heard of this brand before.  Whilst it is still in that annoying aluminium tube, I have to say the packaging is quite cute.  The smell is nice and refreshing, and just about (if not equally) as moisturising as the Jurlique hand creams.

Kiehls Ultimate Strength Hand Salve

Used this a while ago.  Very very strong herby medicinal smell.  Texture is thicker than the Jurlique and Mozi hand creams.  It is more moisturising but I probably won't buy it again due to the smell.

L'Occitane Verbena Moisturising Hand Lotion

Bought this purely for the smell and the fact that it is in a pump bottle.  Definitely not as moisturising as the rest reviewed here - the texture is a lot runnier.  It is nice but would not buy again.
