REN – Citrus Limonum Prebiotic Hand Cream
Maybe it’s your clean, snow-white, light-fluffy-but-solid consistency. Maybe it’s because you remind me of sunnier days on Italian islands when the UK sky outside is a dark, flat grey. You’re the hand cream version of a lemon sorbet; not greasy – just hydrating. But I think it’s what’s inside you that I like most – your Lemon Peel and Blackcurrant Oils and your Shea Butter – and your hefty 300ml for £17, less than £3 per 50ml.
You’re good for all skin types. You’re a keeper. REN Citrus Limonum Prebiotic Hand Cream £17/300ml
REN says: A light, fresh and easily absorbed hand cream formulated with Sicilian Lemon Oil and prebiotic oligosaccharides to protect the hands and nails against bacteria while keeping hands hydrated and nourished.
We say: One of the best hand creams we’ve tried – ever – so delicious and utterly non-greasy, we just wanted to scoop it out of the bottle and use it as a body moisturiser! Men might like this one, too. With Bergamot Leaf Extract, Lemon Peel Oil, Blackcurrant Seed Oil. 10/10. (Would love to see it in a tube, too, for the bag/travel/work!)
Contains: Oligosaccharides to protect and soothe – Antileukine from ochroleuca seaweed helps to reduce irritation – Omega 3 and glycerides from arctic blackcurrant and shea butter nourish the skin and help to repair dry and chapped hands.
