After years of neglecting my hands, I've recently been on the hunt for my holy grail hand cream, resulting in me reviewing a number of different brands here on Skin Deep. The most recent to capture my attention is Origins Make A Difference Rejuvenating Hand Treatment.
I loved the packaging. The matte, mint green tube is both aesthetically pleasing and functional for use. What's more, the 75ml size means it's travel friendly.
The texture is a rich gel-cream, almost akin to a balm but less heavy. It absorbed quickly and left a "barrier" on the skin. It wasn't a greasy residue as such but I could definitely tell that there was product left on my hands. They felt protected and I feel this would be a good choice as we head into the winter months.
The scent- a slightly medicinal fragrance in which I thought I could detect aniseed- wasn't to my personal liking but whilst strong, it didn't linger.
My hands were left feeling soft and smooth however, at £19.50 for 75ml, I'd struggle to justify a repurchase particularly because I've tried other hand creams which I prefer (not least owing to the scent).
