“Most hand creams bother me because they’re too pungent. But this one has a light, subtle scent that doesn’t battle with my perfume or irritate my sensitive nose. My hands are always left feeling silky soft, too, without any heavy residue. My purse feels empty without a mini of this product in it at all times!” —Nezariel Scott, digital editor, FLARE
