Citrus Saves The Day

April 15, 2008

I've got to hand it to Jurlique. Just when I think their product line up can't get any better they prove me wrong with another amazing new item. Their hand creams, available in Rose and Lavender, have been a favorite among countless Jurlique devotees. And now a new formula has been released that's completely different in spirit than the romantic Rose and calming Lavender creams. The refreshing scent of the Citrus Hand Cream is like a dose of pure, bottled sunshine that instantly revives your mind while it hydrates your hands. Of course, it's perfect when you're knee-deep in snow and the balmy days of summer seem ages away. 

Like its predecessors, the Citrus Hand Cream is luxuriously rich and positively potent, yet non-greasy. Just a tiny bit goes a long way. The protective combination of tangerine, mandarin and lemon quickly soaks into dry, rough and raw hands to leave them beautifully restored and super soft. I also love rubbing the cream into my cuticles especially during the winter months when they tend to get the most dry. Another great tip is massaging a bit into super dry elbows to help get them velvety smooth. This works especially well if you've accidentally squeezed more cream out of the tube than you need for your hands (and who hasn't done that before?). Will I be replacing my Rose Hand Cream with this yummy, sunny citrus version? No way. But because I tend to need a hand cream in my purse, by my bed, next to the sink (to soothe raw post-dishwashing hands) and anywhere else I can think of, it's nice to have different options. No one ever said a girl had to stick with one scent.
