Which philosophy hands of hope scent is your favourite? (tell us & win)

I’ve been a huge fan of American skincare brand philosophy for years. My followers know that my all-time favourite skincare product is philosophy’s purity cleanser. I take it everywhere I go. Oprah was an early champion of the brand making “Hope In A Jar” one of her favourite things a record eight times in O magazine.

luxe scented hand creams

So when I saw philosophy’s new hands of hope scented collection, I got excited. This premium hand lotion is a very good formula offering great hydration in a lightweight, non-sticky texture. That is thanks to shea butter and a blend of natural oils. You’ll also find vitamin E, aloe vera extract and olive oil. Hands are the part of our body we use the most and are frequently exposed to extreme weather conditions and environmental aggressors. They also tend to age the fastest. So it is a good idea to keep them hydrated and conditioned.

After skincare expertise, philosophy is one of the best brands for blending really enticing fragrances. Their holiday bath and shower gels in sugar cookie, candy cane and vanilla birthday cake smell good enough to eat. (okay, I may have tasted one once but it didn’t taste like it smelled.)

The scented collection debuts

This month sees the arrival of the philosophy hands of hope scented collection, eight beautiful scents that are skillfully blended. Choose from lemon custard, sparkling grapefruit, berry and sage, green tea and avocado, fresh cream, sea salt and basil, pomegranate fig, cocoa horchata and hibiscus water lily. They come in small tubes so you can pop them in your bag and switch them up daily.

I’ve collected four of my favourites:

    Philosophy makes great products and I’m sure all these creams are equally great. But I think I’d like to start with the Lemon Custard.
