Its true what they say, you can always tell a woman’s true age by her hands… but it doesn’t have to be this way if you look after them you can fool people easily! My mum for example her hands and skin in general look amazing and people mistake her for 10 to 20 years younger than she is all the time. Our hands are constantly exposed to all the nasties that our in the environment and this can cause the hands to age prematurely. So you need to be on top form and keep a reliable hand cream with you to hydrate & protect. I was very kindly sent 2 new Roger & Gallet hand balms to try, bringing their range from 3 to 5. I received the 2 new additions to the range the Bienfaits Hand & Nail Balm* and Fleur de Figuier Hand & Nail Balm* both 30ml in size and retail at £6 but are currently on offer for £5.10 through the links.
Fleur de Figuier
This one compliments the range of the same name and its a wide variety to choose from they have also got a perfume of the same name that is new as well and smells wonderful! This new range encompasses a range of mixed fruit but plays on its main sent, fig. I love the sweet sublet notes that come with figs and I find it to be a real all year round scent. Its relaxing but never over powering. This like all the hand balms offers 24 hour hydration and is moisturising yet mattifying on the skin thanks to the Glycerin. It contains lots of other good stuff like Shea Butter to help nourish & protect, Aloe Vera to hydrate and soothe and Apricot Kernel Oil to soften hands and nails. They are ultra hydrating and handbag friendly too.
New to the Bienfaits range this contains an extract of 5 red fruits blackcurrant, pomegranate, cranberry, blueberry and cherry its fresh and uplifting as is the most fitting summer scent. It has sublet orange under tones which aid to bring out the other fruits perfectly. Just like the Fleur de Figuier it has all the nourishing benefits containing the same good ingredients and is also wonderful at not leaving any nasty residue on your hands, they sink in really fast meaning no hand flapping to dry them is needed.
I really love the packaging of these its bright and fun yet has a real luxury look. Like everything from the brand its french roots can be seen and felt.. well Roger & Gallet has been going since 1693!
So keep you hands looking young and gorgeous all year round a pick up one of theses. If your after something a little different there are 3 others to choose from so there is something for every taste.
Have you tried any thing from Roger & Gallet? What do you think of their hand balms?
