I always keep a hand cream of some sort accessible during the day, whether it be in my bag, or on my desk at work. It's essential. Our hands battle the elements every day. They go through tough some tough times. Tapping away at the keyboard, undoing jars and bottles, acid and grease from cooking etc, so it's good to give them some TLC when they need it. In the past, I've been a loyal L'Occitane Shea Butter fan, and of course I'm never without the classic Clarins Hand and Nail Cream. A new one to my collection is the Bliss High Intensity Hand Cream.
Bliss as a company is nearly 20 years old, and was founded in New York as a spa. They go for the fun, down to earth feel without being the standard spa. Along with this, they now focus on their products, tried and tested in their spas. It's a good way to have long lasting loyal supporters and I genuinely love the fact their business has stemmed from one spa. Nice one Bliss! But now onto the goods - the High Intensity Hand Cream. Let me start by telling you that this has one of the best scents in a hand cream I have ever tried. It is like a citrus burst from the moment it's on your skin. I'm a sucker for citrus and this pulls all the points. Full marks from me on that front. Laden with macadamia oil and grapeseed extract to maximise hydration with antioxidents, this does a good job of keeping your hands fully moisturised. I use two pea size amounts of the cream for both hands, and because it's so rich and creamy, it sinks right in, and I mean right in. Plus, there's no greasy residue - result.
So is the Bliss High Intensity Hand Cream total Bliss? It's definitely a favourite and up there with my L'Occitane and Clarins favs. Dry hands can be bliss-tory ;) (oh the shame!)
