our hand saviour
We place our cracked, dry and wrinkly hands in the soothing care of Sothys Velvet Hand Cream.
They say that soft hands are a mark of gentility; someone privileged enough to not have to work with their hands. If this is the case – then I could quite easily be considered a pauper if one was to judge me on the state of my hands alone.
I have tried many hand creams in my quest to restore that soft, smooth youthfulness. But the one that gets my two thumbs up is Sothys Velvet Hand Cream – a lifesaver in a tube for anyone with hands like mine. Infused with the legendary Eau Thermale Spa, sweet almond oil and shea butter, and with a texture that’s as velvety as its name, this hand cream is a saviour for dry, cracked digits. Just a few seconds of massaging this luxuriant lotion into my oft-neglected hands and voila! They look younger, plumper and smoother – not unlike the hands of a lady of leisure, I’m pleased to note. And, as the cream is formulated with Vitamins A, E and F, my brittle, fragile nails and dodgy cuticles are also strengthened at the same time.
Best of all, this luscious hand cream doesn’t feel greasy or smell overpoweringly fragrant. It glides on and is almost immediately absorbed, leaving your hands silky smooth and lightly scented. So place your hands in the safe, soothing hands of Sothys – it’s a winner, hands down.
