Let’s talk hand creams. With the extra hand-washing we’re doing as a health precaution during this pandemic, our hands are surely feeling drier as days go by. One product you’re likely not thinking as much about is a good hand cream! I have two really amazing ones in my collection that I thought I’d do a head to head with for you guys.
If you’re someone with sensitive skin, but still enjoys a nice smell, you would most likely prefer the Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment. Though, if you have some serious dryness to take care of, use the Aveda Hand Relief. Here’s a breakdown of, according to me, which YOU should choose and why:
1. If you struggle with rough hands and excessive dryness, choose Aveda because it soothes and leaves skin extra nourished and soft. 95% of it is naturally derived, so it’ll be like getting nourished with nature!
2. If you prefer to smell your hands throughout the day, choose Clarins because the Shea Butter inside of it smells just like heaven.
3. If you have skin that is more on the sensitive side, you might want to opt for a more lightweight option. Choose Clarins because it isn’t as intense as Aveda, and absorbs pretty quickly.
Those of you who read my post on a less is more makeup capsule collection, or have been closely following me on Instagram or YouTube, know how much of a fan I am of the brand Clarins! Aveda, too is a great option, and I actually use a few of their other products–from their damage control hair spray to even their nail polishes. As far as hand creams, however, at the end of the day, the choice comes down to understanding your individual needs.
Overall, between the two, I’d say the winner for effectiveness and ingredients is Aveda Hand Relief, but the one that would likely work for a range of skin types would be Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment!
