The Sunday Review – Nougat London Nurturing Hand Cream

The arrival of a little pot of Tuberose and Jasmine Nurturing Hand Cream from Nougat London was perfectly timed on the day when my last hand cream ran out – a good omen if ever there was one. The glass jar looked smart, I'd go so far as to say 'luxurious' and incredibly inviting – I just couldn't wait to delve in and take out an enormous scoop of the stuff!

The hand cream is very thick and rich. It reminds me of the sloppy bits of clotted cream! Despite this, it actually absorbs quite quickly into the skin and didn't leave my hands feeling greasy.

The key ingredients are cocoa butter, almond oil and macadamia oil which are all moisture-replenishers. The cream also contains Comfrey extract and Vitamin E to help sooth cracked or dry skin and heal damage to hard-working hands.

In terms of effectiveness, I'm happy with the cream although I don't wake up in the morning and notice how scrumptious my hands look (it's hard to find a hand-cream that gives that feeling but when you do, its an amazing feeling). The thing that really really wins me over though is the scent. I've never come across Tuberose before but, combined with the exotic scent of jasmine (one of my favourite flowers), the smell of the Nougat hand cream is so sweet, summery and floral that I just want to sniff the pot! This hand cream smells elegant rather than hard-working.

Nougat London Nurturing Hand Cream also comes in two different sizes of tube (great for when travelling) or a larger 200ml glass jar which would look great sitting on your dressing table. The 50ml pot costs £7.00 and can be bought online through their own store or in department stores such as John Lewis and Harrods or a number of smaller boutiques.
