Last week my hands have had quite the rough patch because the humidity levels here have been so low. I drank water and applied lotion all day long! For this weekend's skincare topic, I thought I would review the hand cream that I keep stashed in my desk drawer at work: Crabtree & Evelyn's Ultra La Source Ultra Moisturizing Hand Therapy.
The cream is definitely a cream and not a lotion. It is a mid-to heavier weight hand treatment, so only a small amount is required for application. It's not as heavy of hand treatment as some of the thicker consistency products I keep at home like my Burt's Bees Almond Milk or J.R. Watkins Hand and Cuticle Salve. The La Source hand cream has a nice balance between feeling a layer of moisturizer lingering on your skin, but not so much that you'd feel the need to wipe your fingers before touching anything. Since it does linger, the La Source hand cream is a pretty good 'intensive conditioning hand cream' as stated on the tube, however it can't completely heal really rough patches and cracks. I still need my other products for that. In summary, Crabtree & Evelyn La Source hand cream is a good choice for daytime use in dry weather. I'm happy to have it in my desk drawer.
Thanks for reading! What are your go-to hand creams? Do you have a small collection too? Have you tried any Crabtree & Evelyn products?
