These Non-Greasy Hand Creams Will Leave Your Hands Feeling Soft and Smelling Heavenly

When your hands are moisturised you also keep your nails strong and healthy too, which helps manicures last longer – win-win!


I love lightweight, fast absorbing hand creams that don’t need any downtime – I want to be able to write, type, open bottles, grab coffee etc. without slippery hands interfering with my day.


But the most important thing?  It’s got to be non-greasy.  These are the ones that have passed the test.

Great for: people who want to prevent rather than treat dry hands, as this formula is incredibly light. Also great for people who usually don’t like hand creams – this instantly sinks in leaving hands feeling smooth, velvet-y and dry to the touch.  This is the perfect hand cream for summer.

Texture: gel/sorbet, instantly absorbed 

Fragrance: fresh lemon, moderately scented

Available from: ^Feelunique

Great for: people with dry hands during warm months – the super light texture, refreshing fragrance and need for only a small amount of product makes this a great choice for quick reapplications throughout the day.

Texture: dry pomade, very fast absorbing

Fragrance: basil with verbena, super refreshing and uplifting. Very strongly scented and lingers for hours.

Available from: Cult Beauty

Great for: people who want a moderately moisturising hand cream with a light feel and scent.  This is the hand cream I keep bedside my bed to apply at night.

Texture: light cream, fast absorbing

Fragrance: sweet orange, like sparkling fresh juice. Lightly scented. (I also love the ^Thê des Vignes version of this hand cream which has a light white musk, neroli and ginger scent.)

Available from: ^Feelunique, ^Lookfanstastic

Great for: people who want a moment of indulgence – available in 4 beautiful scents, these moisturising hand creams feel as luxurious as they smell.  At Christmas, these usually become available as a gift set, highly recommend. (I still haven’t forgiven them for discontinuing the Crème de Pistache fragrance in 2015/16 – I’m holding out hope they come to their senses and bring it back one day!)

Texture: light cream, fast absorbing

Fragrance: Celeste fig, apricot nectar and ylang-ylang. Smells fresh, earthy, green and creamy. Moderately scented.
