...can feel as soft as your face.
Do you remember the Fairy Liquid advert?
I don't do dishes as I have a dishwasher so my hands usually need a little help to keep them as soft as my face. I was very lucky recently when I won Amanda's Crabtree and Evelyn giveaway on her Eight by Six blog. It all came beautifully packaged in the most lovely little box.
Inside was a 100g tube of Gardeners Hand Recovery which is recommended for the aid and relief of very dry or rough skin and helps restore suppleness and youthful appearance, and two 25g handbag size tubes of Gardeners Hand Therapy which helps nourish and condition work roughened hands.
These are just the things to keep my hands in tip top shape after all the work I'll be doing putting the allotment to bed for the winter.
I have to confess that I haven't used them yet but they smell lovely. I like to keep things new for a while before using them. Am I the only one who does this?
Thank you, Amanda. I'm very pleased with my prize, I'm sure it will keep my hands silky soft.
Ha if it was me I would have had a good squirt of all three by now. Lucky you, well done!ReplyDelete
I don't think I'll hold out much longer, I'm dying to use them.Delete
Well done. It sounds like you'll be making good use of them. Flighty xxReplyDelete
They've arrived just at the right time of year.Delete
Such a lovely giveaway! I am sure that your hands will appreciate it with all the gardening that you do. xxReplyDelete
I've never tried Crabtree and Evelyn before so I'm looking forward to using them.Delete
Ooh, what a yummy prize to win - lucky you. I'm a handcream fiend as having two dogs means I seem to be constantly washing my hands!ReplyDelete
Happy weekend and hope you get some gardening done so you have an excuse to use your lovely new cream.
I'm always washing my hands too with Archie. Not sure I'll be gardening this weekend, but I may just use my lovely giveaway anyway.Delete
Well done on the win. I know what you mean about keeping things for a while, it's like you enjoy having them knowing they are they to use, builds up the pleasure of having a treat!ReplyDelete
That's exactly it. I think I've had these lovely creams long enough though now, I must give them a try.Delete
Now, was that Patsy Kensit's advert or was she Birds Eye Peas? Enjoy your soft hands!ReplyDelete
I'm not sure, I know she did Birds Eye peas. These creams are just the thing for a gardener, I'll enjoy using them.Delete
I remember the Fairy ad. I also remember the one for Palmolive washing up liquid where a manicurist had her client's fingers in a bowl of Palmolive washing up liquid as it was (allegedly) so good for your hands. I think I'd rather use your handcream! LOLReplyDelete
I don't remember the Palmolive one at all, perhaps I would if I saw it. I'll definitely stick with handcream.Delete
Oooooo spoil those hands xxxReplyDelete
I do feel father spoilt having such lovely handcream.Delete
Lovely prize, crabtree is nice stuff enjoy!ReplyDelete
I've heard lots about this brand in the past but never tried it myself so it's a lovely prize to win.Delete
What a lovely prize, Jo and the box is gorgeous too. Have you used the hand cream yet?ReplyDelete
I've had a little squeeze of the Hand Therapy and it's gorgeous, so creamy and it smells delicious.Delete
