I was thinking about writing a blogpost about handcare. Since I am born with dry hands every time the temperature drops I notice my hands get dry and sometimes very painful. I used to buy a cheaper hand cream , more like a lotion. But since I started to invest in some good stuff my hands feel and look much better. So here is a blogpost about my 4 favorite hand creams that smell good.

1) Rituals … Miracle balm € 10,00 / 75 ml 

A luxury and rich hand balm with the scent of white lotus and Ginko Biloba from Japan. The texture is rich and creamy and the scent lingers very long on the skin. The balm is greasy but it sinks into the skin pretty fast.

2) Diptique the art of body care hand balm € 28,99 / 50 ml 

Super expensive, more a lotion than a balm or cream but guys this is such a nice products and the packaging is lovely + the smell is great.

3) Burt’s Bees Almond and beeswax handcreme € 14,00 

In my opinion is this the best smelling one out of these four. It smells exactly like marzipan because of the almond milk. The downside is that this is in a little jar that is kinda annoying to carry around.

4) Neutrogena hand cream (scented + unscented) € 6,00 

This works the best for really really dry hands.  The scented one smells like laundry, the unscented one …. speaks for itself. This is a very moisturizing cream that also won’t come off after washing your hands. Kind of like a gore-tex jacked.


I am out of hand cream, and I want to buy myself one of these again. I think I’m going for Rituals again …


What are your recommendations for very dry skin? Let me know below!

Much love
