I'm notoriously horrible about keeping my hands moisturized. I over wash (thanks, neuroses), and hate having to use my hands when they feel lotion-sticky, so I used to let them get to the point of cracking, flaking, and bleeding during the winter. Thankfully, due to divine intervention (in the form of a gift from my sister-in-law), my poor paws don't suffer that fate anymore.
I got Library of Flowers's Handcreame in Field & Flowers as part of my birthday gift last year, and I sort of grumbled to myself, afraid that I'd amassed yet another lotion-type-product that would look cute collecting dust on my nightstand. I was wrong. Way, way, wrong. First, it's worth noting how adorable the product itself is; I couldn't bring myself to throw away the box the cream came in, and my nearly empty tube still lives in its original external packaging. This particular scent is a super pleasant, light floral that is long-lasting, but not overbearing by any means; I make my fiancé reaffirm my opinion on the smell by shoving my hands in his face after applying it before bed, but otherwise, I think someone would have to get pretty physically close to be able to smell it (but that doesn't keep me from creepily sniffing my hands throughout the day...it's too nice of a light, yet noticeable floral NOT to, just saying).
Most importantly, this hand cream is hyper-moisturizing, but NOT GREASY in the slightest. I repeat: it banishes dryness swiftly and completely, but not at the cost of walking around all day feeling like I smeared an entire stick of butter all over my hands. It absorbs super quickly and instantly leaves my skin feeling soft, supple, and thoroughly quenched. Nothing short of a miracle, frankly. It's one of the first body-moisturizing products in the history of my lifetime that I've nearly finished, if that says anything. I also recently purchased the Honeycomb flavor, just to keep things interesting, and that scent is equally amazing in its own way; much like its floral cousin, it's not too overpoweringly honey flavored, but I definitely catch a nice whiff as I'm going about my day. I'll admit, $20something can seem steep for a thing of hand cream, but I really don't need much product each time I use it, and it's a pretty sizable tube, making it really easy for me to rationalize buying it. Plus the brand itself is adorable, and I love (and, subsequently happily support) everything that Margot Elena does.
Whether you're a lotion lover or loather, you will definitely not be disappointed with this purchase! Scout's honor.
