Beauty Review: Jane Iredale HandDrink Hand Cream

I’m on a never-ending quest to find lotions that leave my very dry hands smooth, soft and not greasy. So when I crossed paths with the new Jane Iredale HandDrink Hand Cream, debuting this month, I was excited to give it a shot.

With a rose scent and SPF 15 coverage, the cream “combines sun protection with added skin care benefits needed to keep hands healthy and hydrated.” I really enjoyed the subtle, floral scent of HandDrink—it wasn’t overpowering—and my hands felt silky even in the harsh winter weather. I even brought the lotion on a December trip to Florida, and liked knowing I had the UV protection while I was outside under the sun. But one of my favorite selling points? The size and shape of the bottle. At a little more than 2 ounces, the thin, sleek tube fits easily inside a purse for on-the-go use.

You can find Jane Iredale HandDrink Hand Cream, which retails for $29, at Nordstrom Easton or at other Columbus retailers found here. –Heather Weekley, @heather_weekley
