Soap & Glory Hand Food

Hello girls :)

Most of you probably know all about Sop & Glory's amazing hand cream - Hand Food. Like a lot of people, I'm a big fan so I thought I'd let you know why.

I work in a builder's yard/ hardware store so at the end of the day, my hands are usually covered in paint, cement & dirt. When you add in the blisters & cuts usually on my palms from rowing, it's not hard to guess that my hands are pretty rough & U-G-L-Y. Enter my desperate need for a saviour.

Now, look - Hand Food is not a miracle in a little squeezy tube. (Full marks for packaging though. It's much more hygienic than a tub, and the pink is cute. It naturally also matches my vast collection of S&G products.) But while it's never going to make my blisters disappear overnight, it soothes any sore patches instantly. It's quite a rich cream, that does feel slightly greasy as you begin to rub it in, but it sinks in nice and quickly.

While I love applying it at night, before I get into bed, there's no problems with using it first thing in the morning, or throughout the day. It can still be felt on your skin up to a few hours later, but in an entirely pleasant way. My hands tend to feel soft the second it's applied, but with continued use, they keep that softness and dry out less. I have to admit that the sweet smell also appeals to me, though anyone with sensitive skin might find it too perfumed.


A 125ml tube costs between €6-€7 (Student discounts mean I'm never 100% on prices!) But, I've never actually picked it up on its own. Every Soap & Glory set I've got recently includes this. Therefore, I have one in my student accommodation, one back at home, & a travel sized one to cart around. It's definitely worth a try, especially if your main wishes are for soft skin, and quickly.

Do you have a favourite hand cream, or do you try new ones when you run out?

  1. I love S&G stuff and Hand food is my absolutely fave one to put on when I'm pampering my hands at night, but I find it a bit too right to use during the day. I've got very dry skin so I've got about 5 handcreams on the go at once - The hemp one from the body shop, a glycerine one from avon, Neutrogina, e45 and some superdrug/boots/asda own brand ones - The S&G one is the only one I repurchase though! :)
