|Roger & Gallet Hand & Nail Balm* link|
I was rather pleased when I received these Roger & Gallet hand creams or officially (and elegantly) called 'hand balms' fell through my door. We all know by now how much I love a good hand cream and I've been a fan of the Roger & Gallet brand since using their body lotions.
The two handy sized scents I received were Fleur de Figuier and Bienfaits and I'm in love with both so much so that the tubes are on their way to an empties post very soon the rate I'm using.
I've never quite got the 'fig' fanclub but having smelt Fleur de Figuier, enriched with fig extract I'm ready to sign up to that club. It's amazing and so much so that my hands were wafted under a friends nose at the weekend to appreciate the smell!
Not to worry Bienfaits also smells equally as delicious with its five fruit extracts; blackcurrant, pomegranate, cranberry, blueberry and cherry that I have had both floating around in my handbag at one time or another.
Both and all Roger & Gallet hand balms are enriched with shea butter to protect and nourish, aloe vera to hydrate and soothe dry skin and other tricks such as apricot kernel oil to soften.
If you've listened to my musings on hand creams in the past you will be familiar with my 'mug test' and I can confirm that both of these pass - yes I can pick up a cup of tea without it slipping thanks to a non-greasy and non sticky formula.
The perfect 30ml travel size is £6 and with beautiful packaging, scents and amazing formula I will be repurchasing these again when the time comes.
