Allegra Rhodes Red Lychee Hand & Nail Cream
It is no secret that I am a bit of a hand cream addict. Having super dry hands which love to burst out in lovely patches of eczema on almost a weekly basis means that I literally have a hand cream no further than a metre from me at all times.
Needless to say I was very excited when I received this lovely hand cream from Allegra Rhodes to try as I am always on the lookout for a new one to coat my poor hands in.
Allegra Rhodes is an Australian made and owned brand that uses high quality ingredients which are carefully blended with a larger than normal percentage of Eau De Parfum for a stronger, longer lasting scent.
I received the hand cream in the scent Red Lychee and Oh My God it is goooood! It is described as a sultry blend of Red Lychee infused with irresistable White Chocolate and flirtatious sensual Woods. This is a scent that creates such a luxurious atmosphere which means that this cream was very quickly relegated to the sacred spot on top of my bedside table so that I can coat my hands (and sometimes even my feet) with it and float off to sleep while it fills my senses.
This cream absorbs nice and fast and leaves no greasy residue. It makes my skin feel lovely and soft and instantly soothes any dry patches I might have.
It also comes in three other yummy sounding scents; Sweet Apple & Grapefruit, Cherry Blossom and Ocean Mist.
The only negative thing I would say is that it obviously isn't a handbag friendly cream due to the packaging. This is a little bit of a shame because I would love to carry this one everywhere with me but just can't trust the pump pack in my bag for fear of it leaking everywhere.
For more information on this awesome brand and to see their other great products go to their website here.
I currently also have their Body Wash in Ocean Mist to try but have been frantically trying to use up another product before I open it. Stay tuned for my thoughts when I do!
Has anyone else tried anything from this great Aussie brand?
