I mentioned in a previous post that I was lucky enough not only to meet the truly inspirational Liz Earle but also learn all about the newest launches from the brand. It is not often that I become excited about hand cream but the new Liz Earle Hand Repair Collection is something to behold. The Liz Earle Hand Repair Collection is a trio of beautifully scented hand creams - two new, one signature scent all of which have been infused with skin nurturing botanical extracts to care for your hands all year round.
The packaging of the Liz Earle Hand Repair Collection is very similar to that of the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser - a tall, slim, pump style bottle that is both easy to use and store, each of which features a beautiful pastel hue. I don't consider myself to be the biggest user nor collector of hand cream but there is something about being able to display, three sugar tinged bottles that soothes my sole and satisfies my inner magpie tendencies.
A little more about the three fragrances, two of which are new: Lavender & Basil - an almost herbal, aromatic sleepy fragrance that is perfect for night time use. I'm not typically a Lavender fan but the Basil note really prevents this from becoming powdery nor overly Lavender scented. My personal favourite has to be Rosemary & Rock Rose - a strong, floral explosion that again is somewhat aromatic, if you like fragrances such as Viktor & Rolf Floral Bomb this is one you will want to try out. Lastly there is Liz Earle's signature scent - Orange Flower, slightly floral with a hint of lavender, a fragrance you will most likely recognise.
Divine fragrances aside, the formulation of all three creams within the Liz Earle Hand Repair Collection is beyond stellar - you wouldn't expect anything less, now would you? A quick to absorb, thick, indulgent yet non-greasy, softening cream that contains a blend of Echinacea (to soften the skin), Hops (tones, soothes and calms the skin) and natural Vitamin E (three times more potent than the synthetic kind to heal and prevent skin scarring). An all singing, dancing hand cream if ever there was one - your hands deserve a bottle.
You can find all three variants of the Liz Earle Hand Repair via Liz Earle for £21/150ml - link.
