I’ve been tempted by Zoella’s beauty line a few times over the past year, I’m not a massive fan of her per se – but I do occassionally watch her videos. But walking past her range in Superdrug, I can’t help but stop and sniff! It smells lovely and reminds me very much of that lush type scent – but the range has always felt a bit limited. With a small selection containing your basics such as body lotion (which I always have plenty in stock thanks to beauty boxes) and bath products (I’m not a big bath lover either). So when Zoella Wonder Hand was added to the line, I had it on my shopping list straight away to get my hands on one at the earliest opportunity..
Firstly, lets talk packaging – the fact that this arrived in it’s own little box was a nice touch considering the product is so affordable – it was sealed on both ends – and my guess is that they’ve done that to stop swarms of teens opening them in stores. But never the less for £5 on a very generous sized tube is nice, and the quality speaks of much more expensive brands. Inside a muted rose gold tube again makes this feel much more luxe than you’d guess for the price.
I like 2 types of hand creams, ones for my handbag and ones for my bedside table. This definately is the latter as it’s way too big to carry around in my handbag – which is actually good as I really needed something larger as I’ve been steaming through my smaller ones and haven’t had any left for my handbag!
You only need a tiny pea sized amount of this which is enough to do both hands. When first applied this thick cream does have a slight stickiness, but it fades after a minute or two, something which doesn’t bother me at all – especially as I’m using it as a bedside product. I’ve been really putting my hands to the test the past 2 weeks, with DIY, gardening, the big autumn house clean and lots of other things which are generally unfriendly on my hands – and thanks to a little dab of this at night they’ve shown no sides of being battered or dry. The scent in this is more muted than expected – it has the scent of her original core collection – but it’s not completely in your face, but is still noticeable.
If they were to introduce a smaller sized bottle I’d get one straight away to put into my handbag too.
What are your favourite hand creams?
