Hand creams are my most essential beauty product. My hands get so dry, especially in the Winter, so I go through them pretty fast.
There aren't a ton of natural options, and the bigger brands that I can think of are 100% Pure and Andalou Naturals. Andalou was the first one I tried, and the one I'm still using today because of the price, the formula, and the ingredients.
Their hand creams are very affordable, at around eight to ten dollars for 100 mL of product. The ingredients are natural and hydrating, with Shea butter as the main ingredient, along with variations like Coconut Water, Sea Buckthorn, and Cocoa Butter. All of these hydrate my hands without leaving them feeling greasy or oily, and the cream sinks in quickly, so I'm not left with slippery hands.

The first thing I noticed about this is the scent, which is a little weird at first, but it does grow on you. It kind of smells like a margarita or a fresh day or Spring. Or a combination.
This has Shea butter, cocoa butter, and coconut water for hydration, and lime oil to help nourish your hands. While this isn't my favourite scent, it is my favourite formula of the three, so I'd keep using this.
This smells like oranges, but isn't too overwhelming. This has Shea and Cocoa butters, along with Sea Buckthorn oil to help protect against sun damage, and tangerine oil to help promote brightness. I really like using this in the colder months because of the brightness factor, and the citrus scent reminds me of Summer.
I adore a fresh, calming lavender scent. This one has Shea and cocoa butters, along with lavender oil for cleansing, and sweet almond oil for softening your hands.
