2012 Awards. Hand Cream of the Year. Clinique Even Better Dark Spot Correcting Hand Cream SPF 15.

I’m not going for an award-in-every-category this year. Just highlighting a few favourites that I’ve really enjoyed using in 2012.

Regular readers of this blog will know that I haven’t always had a good relationship with the Clinique range. I think the 3 Step is in dire need of updating and Clarifying Lotion? No.

Having said that, I love this hand cream. It has become a staple. Oddly, I keep it on my bedside and use it in the evenings when I get into bed. I love the smell of SPF (I never said I was sane) and this absorbs really well, leaving no residue. You however, may want to take advantage of the SPF and use it during the day as is intended, like a sane person. Another tip – always rub the residue of your hand cream (and moisturiser!) on your elbows – always. I met Goldie Hawn in the 90’s – she looked (and was) amazing but her elbows looked like lizard skin and completely gave away her age (sorry Goldie! Love you!).

*tips hat to Clinique, admits some of the skincare products are nice*

Clinique Even Better Dark Spot Correcting Hand Cream SPF 15 is my Hand Cream of the Year. 

Also possibly a contender for longest name of a product?
