When Nougat London asked if I would like to try their Beauty Shortlist Awards finalist hand cream I absolutely couldn't refuse. The cream is part of the Nougat Naturals range and is free from Parabens, Sulphates, Petrochemicals, Glycol, PEGs and Colour. It is also cruelty free and suitable for vegetarians and vegans...
- Cream should be applied to the back of the hands first as the skin is much thinner and has less sebaceous glands which means that it can become very dry.
- Wear a pair of cotton gloves over your hands after applying a thick layer of rich moisturising cream and then wait for 15 minutes or so. You will immediately notice the benefit in the texture of your skin, particularly if you are suffering from dry skin.

Nougat London's packaging is perfect for the product. It contains lots of information whilst remaining classic and elegant using only black, white and purple to create a Spirograph design both inside and outside the box. Whether you are purchasing this product for yourself or as a gift the packaging really does add to its extra special feel.
The cocktail aromatherapy fragrance is created using essential oils of Rose Geranium, Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, Sandalwood and Chamomile. The scent is beautiful and calming and not over-powering like some other aromatherapy products I have tried.
My usual sleeping position means my left hand is near to my face when I am getting comfortable so I thought I would test just how calming and relaxing the scent is. Inhaling those beautiful oils really did relax me so much so that my husband actually commented on how quickly I had fallen asleep the next morning! I woke feeling particularly refreshed which I put down to that extra sleeping time.
Not much cream is required for an application, so I have found myself on several occasions using any excess on my arms which are slightly tanned after my recent holiday and in need of hydration. I don't really tan, I just go like a pinky brown for a week or so, but it looks like it's lasting a little longer this time. I cannot 100% say that it has been the cream but I definitely think it has helped.
Over the time I have been using the hand cream, which is little over a week now, I have noticed improvements in the texture and colour of my skin. My skin looks much healthier and supple than before.
I would definitely recommend this one for those improvements and further improvements that I am still noticing each day and for the beautiful relaxing and calming scent.
The tube is a generous 100ml so will last for quite sometime too!
