Hand creams are one of those things that I’m really fussy about. I hate feeling anything greasy on my hands especially when I have to handle/wrangle/wrestle with a toddler, do the dishes and a hundred and one other chores around the house. Greasy hands just do not appeal to me. Of course, I could just apply it before bed but it just happens to be one of those things I’m not very conscientious about.
Speaking of hand cream laziness, it certainly helps when it smells beautiful. The Antipodes Jubilation Ultra Nourishing Hand & Body Cream smells perfect to me. In a pleasant departure from probably the 20-odd other hand/body creams I currently have, Jubilation does not have a super sweet scent that can be overpowering at times. It has a very light, minty scent and tops the cake is that said scent is derived naturally in the form of essential oil fragrances of feijoa, blackcurrant and fig. No artificial fragrances in this one.
Pure plant oils (Superfruit kiwi seed oil, Wild blackcurrant, Avocado oil, Meadowfoam seed oil) are combined with essential omegas 3, 6 and 9 alongside Vitamins A, C and E to create this nourishing blend for your skin. You can say it’s simply power packed with a lot of nutritional goodness.
This cream is lightweight, not greasy at all, absorbs really quickly and the thing I enjoy most about it is the cool, minty sensation it leaves behind for a good 30 minutes or more. I am almost intrigued by it. It feels really refreshing and often inspires a quick sniff of my nicely scented hands.
Overall, I enjoy the different experience I have had with this cream compared to the others I have tried. It’s not one of those sweet, soothing creams that smell of florals and cotton candy. It’s a nutrient-packed cream with quite a kick. It refreshes your senses and will be one of those creams that will not be relegated to your bedside table for night time in the hopes you will remember to apply it. A little goes a long way (plus you don’t want to overdo it: remember the minty sensation) with this one and it’s great for relieving excessive dryness especially.
Antipodes Jubilation Ultra Nourishing Hand & Body Cream (120ml/4 fl.oz) is available at Priceline .
