Apparently I was on to something when I started using Lush Full Of Grace serum as a hand treatment. One of the newest Lush products is Tiny Hands, a cute (and not so tiny) hand cream in bar form. It contains argan oil, aloe vera, cocoa and shea butter and feels very (very!) rich. The secret to using Tiny Hands is restraint. It's a melt-in-your-palm product and it feels very tempting to play with it just a second more, but you really shouldn't. A very little amount goes a very long way, covers both side of the hand and there's still more than enough to massage into nails and cuticles. If you overdo it it would take too long to absorb and make your hands greasy. As it is, I prefer to use Tiny Hands at night or at least stay away from cats and laptops until my paws are no longer oily.
In any case, Lush Tiny Hands is an effective, moisturizing and softening hand cream. It improves the state of my hands within a couple of days. It also instantly banishes the dusty dryness I always feel after cleaning litter boxes and the ferocious scrubbing that follows. As a surprising bonus, the scent of Tiny Hands is a semi-pleasant delicate floral, and is not likely to annoy even those who usually object to the way Lush products tend to smell.
Bottom Line: very good.
Speaking of paws, here are Sophie's:
Lush Tiny Hands ($5.95, 2.1oz) and square body butter tin ($3.95) are available at Lush stores and online. Both were sent for my consideration from the company's PR.
