So, as you might have guessed, I loving all things Antipodes at the moment, I’ve done a few posts – here & here on some of my recent buys and have a few more posts lined up, while I do love them, I did balk a bit at spending £16 on a hand cream when I love my Soap & Glory Hand Food so much. Having said that, I do really like this hand cream, it smells amazing, slightly citrusy, it’s got a scent that I can’t quite put my finger on, it’s a little bit like Sherbet or Lemon Drops. It has Sweet Orange, Cedarwood and extracts of the Kowhai flower in in it (the Kowhai flower might be the scent I can’t put my finger on, it’s a flower native to New Zealand) Like most Antipodes products, it’s got that natural, slightly herbal scent to it, that feels like it's really doing something good for your skin. It also has Avocado oil in this as one of the main ingredient which is rich in Vitamin E and super moisturising.
Formula wise, a little goes a long way, I would say you need just over half the amount that you would use of Hand Food and it does leave your hands feeling incredibly silky soft and it’s definitely non greasy. It comes in a metal tube with cream packaging and the usual Antipodes branding which I really like, it’s a little different and means that you can squeeze every last drop out. It is £16 for a 75ml tube which I know is a lot for hand cream but definitely one for when you feel like your hands need a treat, I bought mine during the cold snap in April and it worked amazingly to mositurise my hands and stop them from drying out, which mine have a tendency to do when it gets really cold.
I also spotted Citronella in the Ingredients list for this which is great at keeping those pesky little midges and bugs during summer months!
