Do you like Terry’s Chocolate Orange? You know, the one that’s shaped like an orange and cut into slices? Orange chocolate seems to be quite polarising – you either love it or you hate it. Me? Love it. Love it.
So when I came across Grown Vanilla and Orange Peel hand cream I was off-the-chart smitten. It smells so amazing, like diving into a creamy bath of orange chocolate and vanilla cream. I have been sprung surreptitiously licking my hands on more than one occasion.
The fact that it’s organic, made from grape seed, wheatgerm, and sweet sweet rosehip oil also helps. These beautiful, non-greasy ingredients fight evil free radicals and boost skins natural protective function, as well as increase skin’s lipid content which helps restore moisture and enhance moisture retaining capabilities. Mmmm…moisture.
You know, your hands are always a dead giveaway for your age. No amount of treatments, botox, facelifts and makeup can hide the age spots and wrinkles on your hands (even hand botox won’t hide age spots, ladies). I realised just how important hands were mid last year when someone who I thought was early 30s hand her hands on the table and…well…she had the hands of a 50 year old. Good for her face, bad for her hands? Destined for a lifetime of gloves? I don’t know. The moral is, nutella should always be eaten with a dessert spoon – don’t waste time with a teaspoon! (and look after your hands, duh)
