Little Luxuries: Rich Girl Hand Cream
I got this Rich Girl hand cream by Deborah Lippmann as a sample from Bloomingdale’s when I bought one of her nail polishes and I was instantly hooked. I love the thick creamy texture of Rich Girl and I especially love the scent—not too heavy, but fresh, slightly floral, even a tad beachy, and altogether wonderful. The cream is very thick yet it permeates my skin, doesn’t just sit on top of it like some other hand creams I’ve tried. The sales associate said it would be good for gardeners since it’s SPF 25 (although really, don’t most serious gardeners wear gloves?) but I actually like this cream best at night, right before bed.
It’s more than I would normally pay for a hand cream, $28, and I bought it with a Christmas gift card to assuage my guilt over a pricey product, then I remembered that it’s good to have a few products you love, that they end up justifying their price because you don’t waste money buying other inferior products. I don’t use that much, since a little goes a long way, and I alternate it every few nights with another less expensive (but still good) hand cream, so this 3 oz. tube of Rich Girl has lasted well over two months so far.
Do you have a beauty product that you buy yourself as a little luxury? Do share!
