Roger & Gallet Crème Sublime Bois d’Orange Hand & Nails is my day cream for my hands. Yes... my skinny, bony, old lady hands have a day cream and a night cream. And this extremely beautiful, tactile tube of softly citrus scented (not strictly alliteration but still...) cream is sublime ;)
SPF15, Argan oil and evening primrose oil are mixed expertly to nourish, protect and enrich hands. The smell off this Bois d'Orange cream is uplifting and calming, like a little walk for my mind if I close my eyes and rub a little of this rich cream into my hands under my nose I can imagine I am in a sunny hot country, somewhere in the country, in an orchard, with some hawt Italian man catering to my every whim... sigh.
What's even better is how quickly this spreads over the skin and then absorbs and dries to a " matte finish for soft and smooth skin" while the oils & Panthenol ensure the thin skin on my hands is moisturised and "comforted". Because this little gem absorbs so quickly I can rub this in and straight away start using the laptop or my phone with no greasy fingers.
I love that the light citrus scent lingers and stays with me through out the day and it is fairly complimentary to my favourite floral perfumes.
Roger & Gallet Créme Sublime Bois d'Orange Hand & Nails cream comes in a 75ml textured squeezy tube with a flip top lid and it is available in all good Pharmacies or you can find a stockist on their website. €9.25 is the damage and this will last you at least 2 months. Its the perfect size for your handbag or desk drawer, but the packaging is so pretty I'd keep it on my desk where I could admire it.... if I had a desk...
