Ok, let me set the scene. I'm at home, it's a sunny day and I have the conservatory doors open. Birds are tweeting and singing their song, all is quiet. The baby is asleep and I've just sat down with a cup of earl grey and a magazine. Sounds perfect right? Well, that was me a couple of weeks ago. And what does this have anything to do with hand cream? Well, while I was sat down leafing through my magazine I realised just how dry my hands were. They were cracking around the knuckles and crazy dry. This is an occupational hazard when you have a baby, constantly washing things up like bottles, and keeping my hands clean.
Well, while I was sat there, on the end table next to me was my Antipodes Joyful hand & body cream which I hadn't cracked open yet - I was just getting over a touch of eczema on my hands but they'd recovered enough to move on from E45. The first thing I noticed was just how gorgeous this smelled (kinda like the colour), like summer berries, really gorgeous - it's not only packed with wild blackcurrant berry goodness, but also hibiscus flower and avocado oil. I squeezed a bit out onto the back of my hand and rubbed it in - instantly my hands felt soft and nourished. The cream absorbed really quickly, not leaving any oily residue.
Over the next couple of weeks I found myself reaching for it several times a day, even putting it in the little man's change bag so I could use (enjoy!) it when I was out and about. What I really like about this cream is the fact it's a generous sized tube, 120ml to be precise, so I think you really get your money's worth because lets face it, this isn't a cheap hand & body cream with an RRP of £29.99.
However, this is (at the time of writing this) currently on offer with nutritioncentre.co.uk for £23.19 so if this is something you've been intrigued by, now might be the time to pick it up :)
Have you tried Antipodes before?
