So, what’s your hand cream of the day. Or perhaps I should say, What hand cream are you presently using? Mine is Sugar Grapefruit by Love + Toast.
Love & Toast is such a cute name for a brand no? Another little indie brand like TokyoMilk and incidentally by the same founder.
I’ve got the Sugar Grapefruit hand creme with me a lot because its a great little hand cream. The texture is light and it absorbs quickly without any sticky feel and best of all, it smells wonderful.
If you like citrus scents and grapefruit scents you’d love this one. The tube comes to you sealed. There is a thin bit of foil you have to puncture, but here’s the problem. There is nothing to puncture the foil with.
Unlike some caps that have that pointed bit at the end, the cap for the Love & Toast Hand Cream is flat. Bit of a bummer that. I had to use another cap to puncture the foil. This might be something the owners need to think about.
Otherwise, the box packaging is adorable as you can see below.
As I said above I like the texture because my hands don’t feel greasy after use. It seems to have helped with some dry parts of my hands where skin was peeling, but that is with regular use over about a week. If you have very dry hands, regular use might help soften the skin but do not expect instant results. That said, there is one instant result here – a lovely light citrus grapefruit scent that will have you sniffing your hands like a glue addict.
Ok that was NOT a good image eh? 😛
Love & Toast or also known as Love + Toast hails from the USA but their website is still under construction. In Malaysia and Singapore, you can pick yours up from Soap n Sorbet for S$19/35g. For those who are particular, the products are paraben free and are not tested on animals.
Pros: Light texture, Absorbs quickly, Not Sticky, Sugar Grapefruit smells lovely
Cons: No way to puncture the foil cover
I’m no good with hand cream – I hardly ever carry any around with me and I always forget to reapply – but I’m a little bit more diligent with this one. I think its that addictive grapefruit scent.
*sniff sniff* 😉
