Try my favourite Hand Cream from SEAMS - it ensures a complex care for hands and nails. This is a great product that provides comprehensive care for hands and nails, this is a must have remedy during the cold season! One of the ingredients - Keratin - will strengthen your nails, and a mixtures of oils of Shea, nuts and Fragonia will soothe and nourish the skin. One of the main benefits of the cream is that it absorbs instantly and doesn't leave a greasy layer, something that is common with nourishing creams.
I brought SEAMS Hand Cream after reading Lisa Eldridge saying she loved it in a post on The Gloss where she discloses her favourite products. It turns out that SEAMS is well loved amongst beauty and fashion insiders and is often spotted at fashion shows. Not surprisingly, it's exceptionally good and something worth knowing about. Since I've been using it my hands have felt much softer and my cuticles look less ragged. The story behind SEAMS is that Karen J Gerrard was inspired to create this perfect hand cream while at fashion college because her hands were taking a real battering. As well as something that heals, soothes and moisturises she's made sure the cream's been formulated to be fast absorbing and non-greasy so it's 'touch-safe', i.e. you can handle fabrics without leaving a residue behind. Obviously, this means it won't leave residue on keyboards, screens or anything else for that matter. What's surprising is that it has this 'touch-safe' benefit but is still quite a rich textured cream. The main ingredients are Fragonia Oil, Shea Butter, Macadamia Nut Oil, Rosa Canina Oil, Garden Cress and Keratin. It has quite a sweet soap-like scent which comes from the Fragonia Oil and is supposed to help with balancing the mind. I love the fact that it's made in the UK Alex I Heart Beauty
As a make-up artist my hands are extremely important to me, as you can imagine, they are my tools. Would you want someone with rough unkempt hands rubbing your face? I know I wouldn't. So it was nice to see SEAMS Hand Cream at London Fashion Week backstage at Top Shop Unique, because our hands do get extremely dry by using brush cleaners, which contain alcohol and always cleaning them with antibacterial cleansers. I didn't think it would be so awesome I would fall in love with it! I can appreciate most hand creams, but there is nothing worse than a hand cream that smells good but doesn't do anything for your hands. SEAMS isn't like this, it immediately softens the skin and hydrates the cuticles. It also smells like... What I can only describe as a classic, summer tan. I would put that down to the Fragonia Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil and Shea Butter. The scent isn't overpowering and the texture is silky. I also love the story behind it, SEAMS was created for a fashion designers studio to help heal pinpricks and moisturise dry, sore chapped skin. Now it is used backstage by seamstresses, make-up artists and models. I highly recommend you get your hands involved in the magic of SEAMS. Stephanie G-M Make-up Artist Click Here
