ELF have launched something a little bit random today… a hand cream. The ELF Say Goodbye To Dry Hand Cream is their newest launch, and their first ever hand cream (thanks to a very kind reader, I now know this isn’t the brand’s first foray into hand creams, as they had one around nine years ago, but it’s still exciting that they’ve launched one within their current range). The brand’s name; ELF, stands for eyes, lips and face, so it does feel a little random for them to venture into the hand cream arena.
ELF Say Goodbye To Dry Hand Cream
Over the last few months, lots of skincare brands have introduced either a hand cream or hand sanitising gel, but it does feel a little late for ELF to now launch a hand cream.
It must have taken them a while to develop the ELF Say Goodbye To Dry Hand Cream, but it feels like it’s maybe three months late? Although we could all do with hand cream all year round…
We are all washing our hands considerably more each day, and it does leave the hands feeling exceptionally dry, especially with use of a high alcohol content sanitising gel.
“This hydrating hand cream will give your hands the extra love they’ve been waiting for. It is infused with jojoba, aloe, cucumber, and shea butter known to nourish and hydrate your skin bringing a much-needed relief to dry hands.” – ELF
The ELF Say Goodbye To Dry Hand Cream is $3 which is super affordable, however, there’s a ‘but’. It might be only $3, but it only contains 25g / 0.88 fl. oz. which is a very small amount of product for a hand cream.
It would take you no time at all to get through this tiny tube, so whilst the price is low, you’re going to need to purchase quite frequently. Hand creams are usually 50ml to 75ml, so 25g is very small.
Water(Aqua), Glycerin, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cyclohexasiloxane, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Caprylyl Glycol, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Disodium EDTA
The ELF Say Goodbye To Dry Hand Cream is packaged within a cute lilac plastic tube, and I do like the packaging. It’s nice that the formula contains shea butter, but for $3 you could pick up a Vaseline, Neutrogena or Dove hand cream and get more mls for money too.
