Rescue: G&H By Amway Nourish Hand Cream $13.85
I gave a speech recently about beauty trends in front of over 50 people. Afterwards, I had to shake so many hands. I can’t tell you the amount of hard hands I felt. After a while, I didn’t want to continue shaking hands because it just felt ewww. People forget their hands, but it’s so important to keep them hydrated because your hands have no oil glands so they can get dry and hard in minutes (not a good look). I got this hand cream in the mail recently and I was obsessed. For a few reasons. Even after I washed my hands, they still felt super hydrated. It’s super creamy but not greasy. This hand cream contains Orange Blossom Honey, Shea Butter, and Pumpkin Seed Oil. And it helps improve skin barrier after 5 days.
