Most gardeners by this time of year are feeling the aches and pains through their hands. O's hands, despite the many types of gloves and waxes he puts on prior to work, are hurting bad! Some days they are so rough and cracked that he can barely stroke our cat, Jasmine without taking off a layer of her fur.
These are a few of my favourite creams to sooth after a long days work. Unfortunately most of them are pretty girlie smelling and not up to O's stamp of approval. Any ideas out there from fellow gardeners and workman alike for a good, heavy duty hand cream made for a manly man would be appreciated.
This is my bed time cream, the smell is sweet and soothing and I love the name: 'The Charmer'. I picked this up Anthropologie.
This is my purse cream, a small tub that goes a long way. I love the healing power of olive oil. Now if only I stocked up more when we were in Italy.
I always associated Crabtree & Evelyn with older ladies, like moms, but this cream is super rich and fresh, and is the perfect cream after a long day in the dirt.
