Hand soap and hand lotion. Hardly the most glamorous of items to review on the blog. However, when they look as pretty as this pair, they definitely deserve some recognition. I was lucky enough to win these in a competition on Twitter – I was kindly recommended to Britmums by the lovely Michaela and was chuffed to find out that they had picked me for a prize! I had no idea what I would be receiving right until it popped through my letterbox and I love them! You even get some emery boards and a holder for the two bottles – handy for keeping them together!
I’m currently keeping them in the kitchen for everyday use, although I do keep an eye on Steve to make sure he doesn’t waste the soap – I want to make them last as long as possible!
The Very Handy hand wash is pretty much like any other everyday hand soap. It lathers well and does its job. The main item I wanted to talk to you about was this though…
…the Marvellous Mitts Hand Lotion. I am constantly using my hands, whether it be at work, housework or clearing up after Jack. My hands often need a little bit of care and attention and I generally turn to either my L’Occitane or Elizabeth Arden hand creams. However, two new beauties have been contending for the crown recently: this and Soap & Glory Hand Food (review coming soon). It all depends on where I am in the house as to which one I use (I have hand creams everywhere…much like the rest of my beauty collection!) but this is so soothing and moisturising. The lotion itself is very thick and creamy but soon sinks in, leaving hands feeling super soft.
I can’t find this set on the Boots website any more leading me to believe it was a Christmas special – there are plenty of them still around on various other websites though such as Ebay (always worth a look!).
