My job has some pretty odd restrictions because I work with historic fashion. One of which is that I can’t wear any perfume or lotion on my hands because they can transfer to the garments so quickly. So my next gift idea seems extra luxurious to me.
Anyone who works with their hands or spends a fair amount of time outside can attest that their hands take a beating in the winter. My skin dries out really quickly, since I wash my hands so often when I’m working with garments and because the winter air seems to zap my skin of any remaining moisture while I’m commuting.
So in the evenings, I use this amazing hand cream from Royal Apothic on my dried out hands. First, I’m a sucker for pretty packaging. I couldn’t bring myself to throw away the box. Second, the City of Angels version has a light, super feminine fragrance of Night-Blooming Jasmine and eucalyptus. And third, this stuff works but doesn’t leave a greasy feel after it absorbs into my skin.
If you have someone on your holiday list who works with their hands and loves the smell of flowers, this is a fabulous gift!
