Unboxing: Philosophy Hands Of Hope | Clozette

We love to do many things with our hands. From putting on makeup to feeding ourselves, there's no denying how much we need them in our lives. But we have to admit that we also tend to overlook taking care of them. This is why Philosophy created their Hands of Hope line. Made with vitamin E to help condition the skin, aloe vera to soothe it, shea butter and macadamia nut to soften it and olive oil to moisturise, this is a must-have for your hardworking hands.

Even better news? They now come in eight delectable botanical scents. You'll get the same results you've always known the Hands of Hope line for — moisturised, smooth skin and hydrated cuticles and nails. But now you can also get a moment of relaxation when you take a whiff of their new scents, which are lemon and custard, Hawaiian hibiscus, fig and pomegranate, sparkling grapefruit, fresh cream, green tea and avocado, coconut and guava, and berry and sage.
