I first came across Connock when I fell in love with their Wonder Balm , now Connock have released a nourishing hand cream that again harnesses the power of Kukui Oil.
I'm already a massive fan of the Wonder Balm, it sits in my handbag and I use it on a daily basis, so it has to be said, hopes were high for the hand cream. Winter is drawing in faster than I'd like it to, so a good hand cream is top of my list!
I'm happy to say, that I've called off the search. Connock's cream does everything I could wish for. The cream itself is a rich formulation that absorbs within moments. I cannot stand creams that leave my hand feeling greasy, It needs to moisturise but not leave residue. Connock ticks all the boxes.
Packaging is functional yet chic, it fits with the existing range and I love the pump that comes with the tube, less mess, less waste, sorted!
The cream is quite strongly scented, but I don't mind it at all. It leaves skin feeling super smooth and supple but most importantly it leaves it feeling like skin. I don't feel like I've applied anything too heavy and for this alone I give Connock top marks.
At £18.50 it's not the cheapest cream on the market, but sometimes you have to invest. Smooth soft hands in winter is something i'm willing to shell out for.
Connock are fast becoming one my brand to watch out for in 2011-12.
