Review: Soap and Glory Hand Food

 Recently I've noticed that my hands have become horribly dry. They were so dry the other day that it was like walking around with sandpaper as skin. So, I raided my mum's bedroom and came across her little selection of hand creams. First I tried one from Victoria's Secret which smelt amazing but was a tad too greasy for my liking. Then I tried a cheapy one from ASDA which did the job but I had to wait half an hour after using it before I could touch anything as it didn't soak in very well. Finally I tried a foreign hand cream from Turkey which smelt so awful that I daren't rub it anywhere. In fact I chucked it in the bin but shh.

So I took myself off to Boots and traipsed up and down the aisles looking at all of the hand creams. There were hundreds. (Probably. Though I could be exaggerating.) How did I know which one to choose? They all claimed different things, all came in different sizes with different prices.....So I chose the pretty one. Soap and Glory's Hand Food.

Before I start with the review I have to say that this hand cream comes in two different sizes. There is 50ml for £2.50 or 125ml for £5.00. Obviously the math GCSE comes in to play and 125ml's for £5.00 is the better deal but for carrying around in your handbag the 50ml is better. I panicked and bought the smaller version as I didn't know which one to buy but next time 125ml's of this badboy is coming home with me!

Anyway, onto the product itself. The packaging calls it an "anti greasy hand cream" and I completely agree. It's thick, creamy and dries into the skin within moments. Once it's absorbed I can get on with whatever I was doing again - no waiting half an hour for the grease to soak in to my skin. It leaves my hands feeling super soft, completely moisturised, like I have brand new skin and lasts practically all day. I don't find that I have to apply it numerous times a day like the previous hand creams I've tried and you don't need to use much either as it's so thick and creamy a little goes a long way.

Another great thing about this product is the smell. All of Soap and Glory's products smell amazing (Supercat Eyeliner not included) so I didn't expect any less from this product. The packaging says it smells like "shea butter, macadamia oil and marshmallow" I don't know about you but the word 'marshmallow' swung it for me. I don't know how to describe the smell but it smells amazing. Trust me. I have good taste.

On the packaging Soap and Glory asks "the most astonishing hand cream ever?" Yes, Soap and Glory, yes it is.


  1. I love this hand cream! It smells delish, although so does all soap and glory stuff...


  2. This is one of my fave hand creams! It smells gorgeous and lasts for ages. The only hand cream I've found to be better was L'Occitane (which is 3 times the price!)
