CHAMPNEYS AND EVERTHING NICE
If you take one look at me, you will think sugar, spice, and everything nice. Rough hands are not what most people will predict. They are wrong! I have been trying various products, and waiting for the day my palms are as soft as baby skin. I may be getting closer.
A rep for Champneys was nice enough to gift me the Softening Hand Scrub and the Hand & Nail Cream ($7.99). One reason I love it is the packaging. The scrub is in an easy to use bottle. I can keep it on my bathroom sink to grab anytime I am washing my hands. I notice a difference immediately after using the scrub. But of course it is important to follow up with the Hand & Nail Cream. When I am not consistent, my palms revert back to rough manly hands. I have no excuse not to use it, since the bottles are the perfect size to fit in almost every purse.
You are supposed to push back your cuticles with the scrub, but I am a bit hesitant to do that. The scent makes me feel like I am at the spa, with smells of citrus, cocoa, shea butter, and it contains almond oil. Very luxurious, but that is no surprise. Champneys is a luxury spa hotel in England. I’m definitely making a stop on my next trip to the UK!
Pros: Soft hands, easy to use, travels well, scent, price
