A good hand cream is hard to come by. So many out there are too heavy, too greasy, or, even worse, just not effective. I got a chance to try the Lavender Shea Hand Cream from Andalou Naturals. A good hand cream is one of my winter beauty essentials. Cold and dry weather can be so hard on your skin, so it’s important to take extra care of it during this time of the year.
